Cape Town ©
Sweeping beaches, towering hilltops, and picturesque vineyards adorn the landscape of Cape Town, dominated by the imposing Table Mountain.
Take a break from the city and head to Boulders Beach and Robben Island. Shop till you drop at Greenmarket Square and Old Biscuit Mill. There's lots more to do: take in the awesome beauty at Table Mountain National Park, look for gifts at Shimansky Jewellers, take some stellar pictures from Cape of Good Hope, and do a tasting at Klein Constantia.

To see maps, reviews, and other tourist information, refer to the Cape Town tour planner.

Lagos, Nigeria to Cape Town is an approximately 12-hour flight. You can also drive. The time zone changes from Western African Time (WAT) to South Africa Standard Time (SAST), which is usually a 1 hour difference. Expect slightly colder weather when traveling from Lagos in September: highs in Cape Town hover around 22°C, while lows dip to 11°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 5th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
