Sweeping beaches, towering hilltops, and picturesque vineyards adorn the landscape of Cape Town, dominated by the imposing Table Mountain.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Clifton Beaches and Fish Hoek Beach. Escape the urban bustle at Robben Island Museum and Abseil Africa. Take a break from Cape Town with a short trip to Dorp Street in Stellenbosch, about 40 minutes away. There's lots more to do: admire the natural beauty at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, learn about winemaking at Klein Constantia, have fun at Long Street Baths, and step into the grandiose world of Castle of Good Hope.
