  • Table Mountain: (Depending on weather) https://www.tablemountain.net/
  • Cape Point:http://capepoint.co.za/Cape Point is in the Cape of Good Hope nature reserve within Table Mountain National Park, which forms part of the Cape Floral Region, a World Heritage Site.

  • Township tours:imzutours.co.za - ABOUT IMZU TOURS: Imzu Tours is dedicated to promoting and empowering the Khayelitsha community by creating jobs within the township and educating tourists about the positive impact Khayelitsha residents have on the world. Currently, the biggest problem townships face is unemployment. Imzu Tours hires locals as tour guides and teaches them transferrable skills that will push their careers forward. Imzu Tours also promotes local artists, showcasing their work during every tour and giving tourists the opportunity to buy beautiful, handmade art and give back to the community. (there are other guided tours, this is just one option)https://www.tripadvisor.co.za/Attraction_Review-g312659-d2343848-Reviews-Siviwe_Township_Tours-Cape_Town_Central_Western_Cape.html
  • Constantia Wine Route: http://constantiawineroute.com/tours/ - The Constantia Wine Tour is one full day, inclusive of wine-tastings, lunch and refreshments. The tour covers a carefully selected mix of iconic, historic wine estates as well as newer, boutique wineries, including a four-wheel drive visit to the highest mountain vineyards…
  • For Shopping experience - http://www.waterfront.co.za/The V&A Waterfront, which attracts roughly 24 million visitors each year, is South Africa’s most-visited destination. This is hardly surprising when you think about how much it has to offer!While it is still technically a working harbour – you’ll no doubt catch a glimpse of fishing boats and container ships – the V&A Waterfront is more frequently thought of as a shopping destination. Covering 123 hectares (think: 180 rugby fields), the V&A Waterfront is divided up into five shopping districts: Victoria Wharf, the Watershed, The Alfred Mall and Pierhead, The Clock Tower, and Breakwater Point. With more than 450 stores, you’ll find everything from local designers to big international brands. For crafts and local talent, make sure you pop into the Watershed, and, if it’s art or jewellery you’re after, head over to The Alfred Mall and Pierhead.

All that shopping is likely to work up an appetite, and the myriad restaurants, coffee shops and fast-food outlets will keep you fuelled. Of course, some of the restaurants and bars are reason enough to visit the V&A Waterfront. The majority of the restaurants at the V&A Waterfront have excellent views of the harbour, and those that don’t – such as Willoughby & Co – make up for it with top-notch food. (Really, the sushi is hard to beat!) If you after something a little more relaxed, head over to the V&A Food Market where you’ll find regional delicacies, artisanal breads and cheeses, craft beers, vegan treats, and biltong. It’s foodie heaven! If it’s a hot day – or even if it’s not – make sure you swing by The Creamery for a scoop of the best ice-cream in town.For sundowners, you’ll want to try the Grand Café & Beach or the trendy Shimmy Beach Club, where the beautiful views vie with the gorgeous patrons for your attention. Bascule Bar at the Cape Grace hotel offers a sophisticated whisky-tasting experience, and Belthezar on Victoria Wharf reputedly has the widest selection of wine by the glass in the world! The above is just a few ideas of things to do and see of which comes to mind as there are so many interesting places to visit around Cape Town, historical buildings, museums, the beaches, restaurants etc. Here is a website you can visit which will give you a wider perspective of whatCape Town has to offer http://www.capetown.travel/.

Dear Brothers and Sisters,  


It is indeed my greatest pleasure to welcome you to this year’s UCAP Congress in the beautiful South African city of Cape Town. Allow me to take this early opportunity to thank our hosts – the Southern African Bishops Conference (SABC) under the leadership of its President Most Rev. Stephen Brislin who is coincidentally also the Archbishop of Cape Town. My appreciation also goes to the Vatican for its continuous support through our brother Rev. Fr. Janvier Yameogo.


The Federation of Catholic Media, the Bayard Press (both of France), The Catholic Media Council (CAMECO); The Symposium of Episcopal Conferences of Africa and Madagascar (SECAM); Association of Member Episcopal Conferences in Eastern Africa (AMECEA), Pan African Committee for Episcopal Conferences (CEPACS) and SIGNIS - World Catholic Association for Communication- for supporting this congress.


I cannot forget those who have offered to speak and moderate in various sessions and all the participants who will take leave from their busy schedules to attend the conference from different parts of the world. May the good Lord grant each and every one of you His journey mercies! A lot of thought, resources and man hour have gone into the preparation of this congress and I must sincerely thank members of the UCAP executive, SABC and the Schoenstatt Retreat & Conference Centre team for burning the mid night oil to ensure the success of this congress. The choice of the conference theme: ‘Using the Media for Promotion of Integral Human Development in Africa’ is apt.


I am certain that with your support and effective participation in the subsequent deliberations, we will be able to make this conference a resounding success and transforming the theme into a reality.


This conference will undoubtedly provide us with a wonderful opportunity to renew old acquaintances and to make new friends, during the networking sessions, with one goal of evangelizing the world through our work. Your presence, therefore, will richly grace this Congress. I wish you fruitful deliberations while you enjoy the South Africa hospitality.


Thank you!


GEORGE SUNGUH - UCAP PRESIDENT
