Cape Town

Cape Town ©
Sweeping beaches, towering hilltops, and picturesque vineyards adorn the landscape of Cape Town, dominated by the imposing Table Mountain.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Franschhoek Motor Museum and First South African Perfume Museum. Step out of the city life by going to Boulders Beach Penguin Colony and Platteklip Gorge. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cape Town: Stellenbosch (Waterford Estate & Dyman Gallery), Franschhoek (Franschhoek Pass & Eikehof) and Hermanus (Voelklip Beach, Lembu Gallery & Studio, &more). There's still lots to do: admire all the interesting features of Chapman's Peak Drive, examine the collection at !Khwa ttu, tour the pleasant surroundings at Stony Point Penguin Colony, and look for gifts at Watershed.

Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Cape Town trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

Johannesburg

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.
Constitution Hill Human Rights Precinct and Union Buildings will appeal to history buffs. Head to Everard Read Gallery and Longstreet Art Lovers 1932for some retail therapy. Venture out of the city with trips to Balloon Rides (in Muldersdrift), Nan Hua Temple (in Bronkhorstspruit) and Pretoria (Horseback Africa, Sammy Marks House, &more). And it doesn't end there: look for all kinds of wild species at Wildlife Areas, examine the collection at Liliesleaf, find something for the whole family at Gold Reef City, and engage your brain at Origins Centre Museum.
