Sweeping beaches, towering hilltops, and picturesque vineyards adorn the landscape of Cape Town, dominated by the imposing Table Mountain.
Explore hidden gems such as Boschendal Wine Estate and Bloubergstrand Beach. Escape the urban bustle at Grotto Beach and Clifton Beaches. Change things up with these side-trips from Cape Town: Franschhoek (Franschhoek Pass & The Franschhoek Motor Museum), Stony Point Penguin Colony (in Betty's Bay) and Fairview Wine and Cheese (in Suider Paarl). There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Boulders Beach, examine the collection at District Six Museum, go for a stroll along the water at Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Scarborough Beach.

For reviews, photos, maps, and other tourist information, you can read our Cape Town day trip planning site .

If you are flying in from Namibia, the closest major airport is Cape Town International Airport. In December in Cape Town, expect temperatures between 31°C during the day and 19°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 24th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
