Sweeping beaches, towering hilltops, and picturesque vineyards adorn the landscape of Cape Town, dominated by the imposing Table Mountain.
Get some historical perspective at Robben Island Museum and St. George's Cathedral. Do your shopping at The Old Biscuit Mill and Marze Botha Art Gallery. Change things up with these side-trips from Cape Town: Fairview Wine and Cheese (in Suider Paarl), Franschhoek (First South African Perfume Museum & Eikehof) and Boschendal Wine Estate (in Groot Drakenstein). There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Boulders Beach Penguin Colony, learn about winemaking at Waterford Estate, explore and take pictures at Chapman's Peak Drive, and trek along Platteklip Gorge.

For where to stay, traveler tips, reviews, and tourist information, refer to the Cape Town day trip planner.

In December in Cape Town, expect temperatures between 30°C during the day and 18°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
