Sweeping beaches, towering hilltops, and picturesque vineyards adorn the landscape of Cape Town, dominated by the imposing Table Mountain.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cape Town: Stellenbosch (Waterford Estate, Mont Destin Wines, & more), Hermanus Cliff Path (in Hermanus) and Robertson (Klipdrift Distillery, Soekershof, & more). There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Cape Point, take in the waterfront activity at Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, see the interesting displays at District Six Museum, and get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Two Oceans Aquarium.
