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 Stony Point Penguin Colony and Twelve Apostles. Get in touch with nature at Boulders Beach Penguin Colony and Cape Point. There's still lots to do: cruise along Chapman's Peak Drive, tour the pleasant surroundings at Fish Hoek Beach, take in nature's colorful creations at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, and do a tasting at Constantia Uitsig Wine Estate.
