What to See in Cape Town?
Table Mountain overlooks Cape Town and forms part of the Table Mountain National Park. The top of the mountain provides excellent views over the city, as well as the Atlantic & Indian Ocean. You can reach the top of the mountain via cable car or by foot. Table Mountain is home to some unique wildlife, including the Hyrax, a small mammal that resembles a rodent but is surprisingly more closely related to the elephant.
At The Old Biscuit Mill, visit the Neighbourgoods Market and sample some of the best local foods South Africa has to offer. Also at the Old Biscuit Mill is Cape Town's most famous restaurants, The Pot Luck Club.
Go on a day trip to visit Cape Point, the southernmost part of Africa. We highly recommend the Two Oceans Restaurant, where you can have delicious seafood while overlooking the beautiful view.
A short drive away from Cape Town is the Boulders Beach Penguin Colony. Here you'll be able to get up-close to the wild penguin colony. Boulders Beach is dubbed as the easiest place in the world to observe wild penguins. A perfect activity for all ages.

During the tour, you will see the cell where Nelson Mandela was kept a prisoner for 27 years. All tours of Robben Island are presented by guides that were previously imprisoned there during the apartheid era.
