Visit the V & A Waterfront where you can try out a harbor tour, or enjoy a meal while you listen to live music and watch seals laze in the sun. Enjoy a picnic at Kirstenbosch National Botanical garden among it’s diverse flora, and themed gardens. Be sure to meet the penguins on Boulder’s Beach in the quaint village of Simon’s Town, or head to the colourful suburb of BoKaap to snap a picture of the whimsical houses, and enjoy a coffee with the locals.
A coming-together of cultures, cuisines and landscapes, there’s nowhere quite like Cape Town, a singularly beautiful city crowned by the magnificent Table Mountain National Park. Capetonians don’t just watch the sunset, they celebrate it. For a front-row seat, go for cocktails at one of Camps Bay’s many bars or restaurants, or pack a picnic to enjoy on Signal Hill, or walk one of the trails on the very top of Table Mountain (the last cable car down generally leaves an hour after sunset).
Framed by sun-splashed vineyards and craggy mountain peaks, the picturesque valleys of the Cape Winelands are famous for their grand old estates, pretty little towns, award-winning wines and sort-after restaurants.
