Mother City

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 Dyer Island Cruises and Grotto Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to African Penguin & Seabird Sanctuary (in Gansbaai), Hermanus (Lembu Gallery & Studio, Hermanus Cliff Path, &more) and Franschhoek (Eikehof, Dieu Donne Vineyards & Views, &more). The adventure continues: explore the wealth of natural beauty at West Coast National Park, admire the natural beauty at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, enjoy the sand and surf at Boulders Beach Penguin Colony, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Paarl Mountain Nature Reserve.
