Cape Town ©
Sweeping beaches, towering hilltops, and picturesque vineyards adorn the landscape of Cape Town, dominated by the imposing Table Mountain.
Robben Island Museum and Groot Constantia will appeal to history buffs. Take a break from the city and head to Cape Point and Clifton Beaches. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cape Town: Shark Diving (in Gansbaai), Pringle Bay Beach (in Pringle Bay) and Phillipskop Mountain Reserve (in Stanford). There's still lots to do: take a leisurely stroll along Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, kick back and relax at Noordhoek Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Fish Hoek Beach, and observe the fascinating underwater world at Two Oceans Aquarium.

Nairobi, Kenya

You're likely to visit Nairobi at least once on a trip to Kenya, as the sprawling city houses the country's international airport and remains the jump-off point for many tours and safaris.
Karen Blixen Coffee Garden and Cottages and Nairobi War Cemetery will appeal to history buffs. Escape the urban bustle at Nairobi National Park and Off-Road Tours. Take a break from Nairobi with a short trip to Mount Longonot in Maai Mahiu, about 1h 50 min away. There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Giraffe Centre, get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, admire all the interesting features of Mugie Ranch, and delve into the lush surroundings at Kereita Forest.
