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 Boulders Beach and Llandudno Beach. Do some cultural sightseeing at District Six Museum and Robben Island. Change things up with these side-trips from Cape Town: Phillipskop Mountain Reserve (in Stanford), Franschhoek (Stony Brook Vineyards, Dieu Donne Vineyards & Views, & more) and Stellenbosch (Neethlingshof Estate, Spier Wine Farm, & more). And it doesn't end there: admire the natural beauty at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, take some stellar pictures from Maclear's Beacon, go for a stroll along the water at Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, and stroll through Cape of Good Hope.
