Sweeping beaches, towering hilltops, and picturesque vineyards adorn the landscape of Cape Town, dominated by the imposing Table Mountain.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Grotto Beach and Wine Tours & Tastings. Get out of town with these interesting Cape Town side-trips: Stony Point Penguin Colony (in Betty's Bay), Hermanus (The Book Collector, Shark Diving, & more) and Franschhoek Pass (in Franschhoek). The adventure continues: stroll through Cape of Good Hope, explore and take pictures at Chapman's Peak Drive, enjoy the sand and surf at Bloubergstrand Beach, and head off the coast to Robben Island Museum.
