Cape Town

Cape Town ©
Sweeping beaches, towering hilltops, and picturesque vineyards adorn the landscape of Cape Town, dominated by the imposing Table Mountain.
You'll explore and learn at District Six Museum and Eyewitness - A Private Collection. Step out of the city life by going to Cape of Good Hope and Maclear's Beacon. There's still lots to do: step off the mainland to explore Robben Island Museum, browse the eclectic array of goods at Greenmarket Square, view the masterpieces at Martin Osner Fine Art Photography Gallery, and look for gifts at Prins & Prins.

For other places to visit, photos, where to stay, and tourist information, refer to the Cape Town trip planner.

South Bend, USA to Cape Town is an approximately 30-hour flight. You'll lose 7 hours traveling from South Bend to Cape Town due to the time zone difference. In June, Cape Town is little chillier than South Bend - with highs of 64°F and lows of 46°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Thu) to allow enough time to drive to Paarl.
