Cape Town — 5 nights

Mother City

Sweeping beaches, towering hilltops, and picturesque vineyards adorn the landscape of Cape Town, dominated by the imposing Table Mountain.
Cape Town is known for nature, sightseeing, and beaches. Your trip includes some of its best attractions: take some stellar pictures from Cape Point, head off the coast to Robben Island Museum, meet the residents at Two Oceans Aquarium, and admire the natural beauty at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden.

Planning Cape Town trip won't be overwhelming when you use Inspirock's itinerary maker.

Oslo, Norway to Cape Town is an approximately 18-hour flight. The time zone changes from Central European Standard Time to South Africa Standard Time, which is usually a 1 hour difference. Plan for somewhat warmer temperatures traveling from Oslo in May, with highs in Cape Town at 24°C and lows at 12°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 1st (Wed) early enough to catch the flight to Kruger National Park.

Rainbow Nation
The landscapes of South Africa match its people in terms of diversity, richness, and vitality. From desert lands and coastlines, to the famous nature reserves sheltering the "Big Five" game animals, the country has natural charm in spades. The main cities provide a wealth of bars, clubs, shopping districts, and entertainment options to please the most demanding visitors, while traditional life can still be admired and respected in a collection of villages with beehive-style huts and an age-old cultural heritage. When in need of a minute to digest all that's happened during your trip to South Africa, sit down to a braai (traditional barbecue), and a bottle of wine made at one of the country's thriving vineyards.
