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 Grotto Beach and Stony Point Penguin Colony. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Old Biscuit Mill and Funky Vibes. Get out of town with these interesting Cape Town side-trips: Fairview Wine and Cheese (in Suider Paarl), Overberg Honey Company (in Stanford) and Rupert & Rothschild Vignerons Tasting Centre (in Simondium). Next up on the itinerary: see the interesting displays at The Franschhoek Motor Museum, savor the flavors at Groot Constantia, relax in the rural setting at Boschendal Wine Estate, and enjoy the sand and surf at Clifton Beaches.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Cape Town International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 65°F in August, and nighttime lows around 47°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 6th (Thu) to allow time to travel back home.
