Sweeping beaches, towering hilltops, and picturesque vineyards adorn the landscape of Cape Town, dominated by the imposing Table Mountain.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Greenmarket Square and African Hands Art Gallery. Visiting Boulders Beach Penguin Colony and Robben Island Museum will get you outdoors. Venture out of the city with trips to West Coast National Park (in West Coast National Park), Dylan Lewis Sculpture Garden (in Stellenbosch) and Shark Diving (in Gansbaai). There's much more to do: take some stellar pictures from Cape Point, take in the waterfront activity at Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Signal Hill, and browse the different shops at Cape Quarter Mall.

To see where to stay, photos, more things to do, and other tourist information, refer to the Cape Town trip planning tool .

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airport is Cape Town International Airport. In September, daytime highs in Cape Town are 23°C, while nighttime lows are 11°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
