Mother City

Sweeping beaches, towering hilltops, and picturesque vineyards adorn the landscape of Cape Town, dominated by the imposing Table Mountain.
Cape Town is known for nature, beaches, and parks. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: take in nature's colorful creations at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, stop by Abseil Africa, take in the waterfront at Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, and observe the fascinating underwater world at Two Oceans Aquarium.

Dallas, USA to Cape Town is an approximately 25-hour flight. You'll lose 8 hours traveling from Dallas to Cape Town due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Dallas in December, expect Cape Town to be somewhat warmer, temps between 79°F and 60°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 15th (Tue) early enough to travel to Durban.
