Sweeping beaches, towering hilltops, and picturesque vineyards adorn the landscape of Cape Town, dominated by the imposing Table Mountain.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like The Franschhoek Motor Museum and Stony Point Penguin Colony. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Grotto Beach and Boulders Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Boschendal Wine Estate (in Groot Drakenstein), Hermanus (Dolphin & Whale Watching, Funky Vibes, & more) and West Coast National Park (in West Coast National Park). The adventure continues: take some stellar pictures from Cape of Good Hope, hunt for treasures at Old Biscuit Mill, do a tasting at Fairview Wine and Cheese, and go for a walk through Phillipskop Mountain Reserve.
