Sweeping beaches, towering hilltops, and picturesque vineyards adorn the landscape of Cape Town, dominated by the imposing Table Mountain.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Platteklip Gorge and Shark Diving. Robben Island Museum and Phillipskop Mountain Reserve will appeal to history buffs. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cape Town: Grotto Beach (in Hermanus), Stony Point Penguin Colony (in Betty's Bay) and African Penguin & Seabird Sanctuary (in Gansbaai). There's much more to do: take some stellar pictures from Cape Point, take in the pleasant sights at Maclear's Beacon, cruise along Chapman's Peak Drive, and take in the dramatic natural features at Twelve Apostles.

For more things to do, photos, ratings, and tourist information, go to the Cape Town trip tool .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Cape Town International Airport. In July, plan for daily highs up to 64°F, and evening lows to 45°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
