Sweeping beaches, towering hilltops, and picturesque vineyards adorn the landscape of Cape Town, dominated by the imposing Table Mountain.
For shopping fun, head to Greenmarket Square or Cape Quarter Mall. Popular historic sites such as Robben Island Museum and Castle of Good Hope are in your itinerary. Venture out of the city with trips to Shark Diving (in Gansbaai), Stellenbosch (The Stellenbosch Village Museum & Dylan Lewis Sculpture Garden) and Franschhoek (First South African Perfume Museum, Franschhoek Motor Museum, & more). There's much more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Clifton Beaches, trek along Platteklip Gorge, take in nature's colorful creations at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, and identify plant and animal life at Boulders Beach Penguin Colony.

For where to stay, traveler tips, photos, and tourist information, read our Cape Town day trip planning website .

January in Cape Town sees daily highs of 32°C and lows of 20°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 31st (Fri) so you can travel back home.
