    A life changing experience... I was swimming 2 feet from them and there were hundreds. You climb around the rocks and you can see them if timid of the water.

    Table Mountain Cableway

    39 reviews

    Surprisingly efficient and well run. Lines were fine in the off-season. Best to ask the hotel concierge to arrange taxis. Booking online doesn't buy that much time, but it might be different in summer.

    Cape Point

    35 reviews

    Cape Point is located inside the Cape of Good Hope Reserve. The point itself includes loads of lookout points to view the Atlantic and Indian Oceans. There is a lighthouse which you can climb up to. You can also get the funicular railway to a point halfway up the hill. I have done this before, but never quite made it ...

    Cape of Good Hope Reserve

    22 reviews

    The Cape of Good Hope Reserve is large and we only had time to explore part of it. It include of course, Cape Point and the Cape of Good Hope, but also many small beaches and wilderness areas to explore. Other than the two obvious areas, we enjoyed driving around the park and stopped off at Buffels Bay on the ...

    Camps Bay Beach

    22 reviews

    Nice beach to relax. It's very similar to Santa Monica in California, except the water is much colder at Camps Bay. Street parking is difficult, so just park in the garage, it's not very expensive. You get to sit in one of the many hip seafood restaurants by the beach and enjoy the breeze and the sun! be careful, wind ...

    Table Mountain may be the iconic symbol of Cape Town, but you can't miss Lion's Head, either. Hike the rock formation for almost-as-beautiful views.

    Two Oceans Aquarium

    17 reviews

    When you want to visit the aquarium make sure you're there at feeding time. A very informative presentation is held at the same time while you watch divers enter the tank and feed the different creatures housed there. Loved the penguin area and the tank with clown fish where you can go up the middle of the specially built tank ...

    Long Street

    12 reviews

    Long Street is Cape Town's trendy row, full of lively nightclubs, boutique shops, and hip hostels. This is where young backpackers make a bee line for once they arrive in South Africa's oldest city. While there are a few highlights along the street, I much prefer the quieter neighborhoods, like nearby Kloof Street. However, if you're looking for a raucous ...

    Victoria Wharf Mall

    13 reviews

    The Victoria Wharf Mall is a massive and sprawling shopping centre on the V&A Waterfront. A good place to shop, with the full range of clothes, books, electrical and gift shops. A little pricey and touristy but its in a tourist area and is a mall, so what else would you expect. There is a pick 'n' pay too, if ...
