rnThanks to a relatively mild climate year-round, Cape Town is pleasant to visit no matter which month your schedule allows. Many of the city’s largest draws are outdoor pursuits, making it an ideal vacation spot for those who enjoy remaining active while traveling. Table Mountain National Park is a popular natural feature, with many folks scaling Table Mountain for the stunning views at the top. Hiking the mountain takes an average of two and a half hours, or you can take the cableway to the top in a car that holds up to 65 passengers and offers breathtaking panoramic views as it travels up the cable. Rock climbing and cave exploring are additional ways to enjoy the park, but no matter which activity you choose, Table Mountain is an EscapeWizard.com must-see during your stay in Cape Town.

rnIf you’ve rented a car, you’ll certainly want to make your way along Chapman’s Peak Drive, a narrow road winding the face of Chapman’s Peak Mountain, yielding amazing views of the Atlantic Ocean. If you prefer slightly less nerve-wracking activity, relax on one of Cape Town’s lovely beaches. Although there are dozens of beaches around the city, they are organized into three regions: False Bay, the Atlantic Seaboard and the West Coast. False Bay is a few degrees warmer than the other two regions, the West Coast is best for surfing due to wind conditions, and the Atlantic Seaboard offers the best sunset views. EscapeWizard.com recommends exploring as many beaches as you can to find your own favorites! Be sure to keep your eyes peeled while you’re enjoying the water, as whale and dolphin sightings are common in Cape Town any time of year.
rn
rnNext, head back into town to experience Cape Town’s urban side. Visit the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront at the Port of Cape Town to indulge in the city’s most frequented tourist attraction. You’ll find several hundred shops, restaurants and the Two Oceans Aquarium; all of which you can enjoy as you watch ships come and go from the busy port. As you wander the streets of Cape Town, you’ll undoubtedly note the unique architectural style of many buildings known as Cape Dutch. Cape Dutch combines inspiration from the Netherlands, Indonesia, France and Germany into one beautiful design. History buffs may wish to also see Long Street and the Central Business District to observe older government buildings.
rn
rnCape Town is truly one of the world’s most special cities, bursting with natural beauty and folks from all walks of life. Plan your own adventure in South Africa and you’re sure to build lasting memories between the gorgeous beaches and friendly faces. Book your travels with EscapeWizard.com today!
