Cape Town is known for its stunning beaches and world-class wine estates. Popular beaches include Camps Bay beach, which is similar in feel to the Miami strip and Boulders Beach. Boulders Beach gets our choice, as it is unique. There are not too many beaches where you can freely swim with the many dozens of local penguins. This makes for a truly great experience for young and old.

Cape Town is also home to many fine wine estates. From the city centre you can travel in just about any direction and be at a wine estate within 20 minutes. If you travel to the south you can enjoy excellent white wines, whilst travelling to the north you will get better reds.

Accommodation in Cape Town ranges from basic backpacking to elite five-star plus like the One & Only at the Waterfront or Le Residence in the heart of the winelands.

From Cape Town another recommended trip is up the Garden Route. This magnificent journey takes you up the pristine coastline and if you pick the correct time of year, you will spot the Southern Right whales, a sight to behold.
