Sweeping beaches, towering hilltops, and picturesque vineyards adorn the landscape of Cape Town, dominated by the imposing Table Mountain.
You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Grotto Beach and Bloubergstrand Beach. Visit Boschendal Manor & Winery and Castle of Good Hope for their historical value. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cape Town: Franschhoek (The Franschhoek Motor Museum & Franschhoek Pass), Stony Point Penguin Colony (in Betty's Bay) and Kraalbaai Beach/Lagoon (in Langebaan). There's much more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Clifton Beaches, stroll through Voelklip Beach, explore and take pictures at Chapman's Peak Drive, and make a trip to Dorp Street.

For where to stay, reviews, traveler tips, and other tourist information, read Cape Town itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airport is Cape Town International Airport. In January, plan for daily highs up to 32°C, and evening lows to 20°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 11th (Thu) to allow time to travel back home.
