Cape Town ©
Sweeping beaches, towering hilltops, and picturesque vineyards adorn the landscape of Cape Town, dominated by the imposing Table Mountain.
We've included these beaches for you: Boulders Beach Penguin Colony and Strand Beach. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Canal Walk Shopping Centre and Uwe Koetter Jewellers. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cape Town: Franschhoek (Eikehof, Franschhoek Motor Museum, &more), Fairview Wine and Cheese (in Suider Paarl) and Waterford Estate (in Stellenbosch). There's much more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Platteklip Gorge, kick back and relax at Fish Hoek Beach, take in the exciting artwork at Galleria Gibello, and hunt for treasures at The Old Biscuit Mill.

Plan my Cape Town trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Lusaka, Zambia to Cape Town is an approximately 9-hour flight. You can also drive; or take a bus. Expect a daytime high around °C in August, and nighttime lows around °C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel to Praslin Island.
