Sweeping beaches, towering hilltops, and picturesque vineyards adorn the landscape of Cape Town, dominated by the imposing Table Mountain.
Explore hidden gems such as Clifton Beaches and District Six Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Cape Town: Franschhoek (The Franschhoek Motor Museum & Franschhoek Pass). And it doesn't end there: explore and take pictures at Cape of Good Hope, examine the collection at South African Jewish Museum, go for a stroll along the water at Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, and take a stroll through Bo-kaap.
