Sweeping beaches, towering hilltops, and picturesque vineyards adorn the landscape of Cape Town, dominated by the imposing Table Mountain.
Cape Town is known for nature, beaches, and parks.

Expect much hotter temperatures when traveling from Halifax in April; daily highs in Cape Town reach 28°C and lows reach 14°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Mon) to allow enough time to travel to Cairo.
