Sweeping beaches, towering hilltops, and picturesque vineyards adorn the landscape of Cape Town, dominated by the imposing Table Mountain.
Visiting Cape Point and Platteklip Gorge will get you outdoors. Explore hidden gems such as Franschhoek Motor Museum and Kraalbaai Beach/Lagoon. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cape Town: Franschhoek (Franschhoek Pass & Eikehof), Marbrin Olive Growers (in Robertson) and Fairview Wine and Cheese (in Suider Paarl). And it doesn't end there: enjoy the sand and surf at Grotto Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Paternoster Beach, do a tasting at Beau Constantia, and take a memorable drive along Chapman's Peak Drive.

For reviews, maps, traveler tips, and more tourist information, use the Cape Town trip itinerary planner.

In May, daytime highs in Cape Town are 24°C, while nighttime lows are 12°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
