Cape Town — 6 nights

Sweeping beaches, towering hilltops, and picturesque vineyards adorn the landscape of Cape Town, dominated by the imposing Table Mountain.
Cape Town is known for nature, sightseeing, and beaches. Your trip includes some of its best attractions: explore and take pictures at Cape Point, tour the pleasant surroundings at Platteklip Gorge, take in nature's colorful creations at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, and enjoy the sand and surf at Boulders Beach Penguin Colony.

Rainbow Nation
The landscapes of South Africa match its people in terms of diversity, richness, and vitality. From desert lands and coastlines, to the famous nature reserves sheltering the "Big Five" game animals, the country has natural charm in spades. The main cities provide a wealth of bars, clubs, shopping districts, and entertainment options to please the most demanding visitors, while traditional life can still be admired and respected in a collection of villages with beehive-style huts and an age-old cultural heritage. When in need of a minute to digest all that's happened during your trip to South Africa, sit down to a braai (traditional barbecue), and a bottle of wine made at one of the country's thriving vineyards.
