Cape Cadogan

Days 3 - 5 Cape Town
Surrounded by the pounding Atlantic Ocean and overlooked on all sides by the dramatic precipice of Table Mountain, Cape Town is a vibrant, fun and cultural city. Enveloped by the stunning Twelve Apostles mountain range, the oldest city in South Africa is full of charm: the Victoria &Alfred Waterfront is a bustling marina full of restaurants and shops, the cobbled walkways and colonial buildings are a genteel contrast to the wild and isolated majesty of Table Mountain and its pretty, sunnier little sister Signal Hill, which affords amazing views across the Atlantic Seaboard and onwards to Robben Island. There is so much to uncover to truly appreciate the Mother City. You will have three full days to experience the city and its many cultural and historic influences. We'd advise taking to higher ground as your first stop: a panoramic view across the city's various districts from Table Mountain is a great way to get your bearings. Next, head south to Cape Point where the two mighty oceans meet, en route to the penguins at Boulders Beach. Cape Town is an ideal base to explore wine country, where Franschhoek delights food lovers and Stellenbosch provides a dose of history (and a pleasant grape). From city to farmland and onwards to the beach: the Cape's coastline is breathtakingly beautiful.
