Sweeping beaches, towering hilltops, and picturesque vineyards adorn the landscape of Cape Town, dominated by the imposing Table Mountain.

There's lots more to do: take some stellar pictures from Cape of Good Hope, meet the residents at Two Oceans Aquarium, stroll through Boulders Beach, and take a leisurely stroll along Victoria & Alfred Waterfront.
