Cape Town ©
Sweeping beaches, towering hilltops, and picturesque vineyards adorn the landscape of Cape Town, dominated by the imposing Table Mountain.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Boulders Beach and Clifton Beaches. There's still lots to do: take some stellar pictures from Cape of Good Hope, kick back and relax at Llandudno Beach, contemplate the waterfront views at Noordhoek Beach, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Two Oceans Aquarium.

To see where to stay, reviews, and more tourist information, use the Cape Town road trip planner.

Hamburg, Germany to Cape Town is an approximately 17-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Hamburg to Cape Town due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Hamburg in February, things will get much hotter in Cape Town: highs are around 31°C and lows about 19°C. On the 20th (Tue), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can travel to Kruger National Park.
