Cape Town is situated at the foot of the majestic Table Mountain. Head to the top with the fast funicular, and walk back down on a stunning three-kilometre hike. Cape Town’s history is fascinating. Learn more about the life of Nelson Mandela on Robben Island or visit the less well-known Slave Lodge. For a great shopping or dining experience, head for the Victoria & Albert Waterfront. We also recommend diving into the unique underwater world at Two Oceans Aquarium, or visiting a wildlife park or vineyard outside the city. Cape Town offers all this and much more besides during your world trip.
