Sweeping beaches, towering hilltops, and picturesque vineyards adorn the landscape of Cape Town, dominated by the imposing Table Mountain.
Get some cultural insight at Robben Island and District Six Museum. Step out of the city life by going to Boulders Beach and Clifton Beaches. Step out of Cape Town with an excursion to Cape of Good Hope in Table Mountain National Park--about 1h 20 min away. There's lots more to do: take in the awesome beauty at Table Mountain, take a leisurely stroll along Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, learn about winemaking at Klein Constantia, and appreciate the extensive heritage of St Georges Mall.

For more things to do, where to stay, maps, and more tourist information, go to the Cape Town trip planner.

Founded when gold was discovered in the area in the late 19th century, Johannesburg quickly grew into a bustling metropolis, South Africa's largest city and the region's economic hub.
Take a break from the city and head to Wild Cave Adventures and Lion and Safari Park. Constitution Hill and Mandela House will appeal to history buffs. There's much more to do: examine the collection at Apartheid Museum, take a stroll through Maboneng Precinct, and take in panoramic vistas at Top of Africa.

For reviews, traveler tips, other places to visit, and other tourist information, refer to the Johannesburg vacation planner.

Getting from Cape Town to Johannesburg by flight takes about 4.5 hours. Other options: drive; or take a bus. In March, plan for daily highs up to 30°C, and evening lows to 17°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 30th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
