To round off your day, take a stroll through Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, nestled on the slopes of Table Mountain. Here you can admire a panoply of the unique Cape flora also known as fynbos, as well as plants from the many diverse biomes of southern Africa. Or, if you prefer the fruits of a different kind of plant altogether, enjoy a wine tasting at one of the premium estates in the Constantia Valley.

Pause for a coffee at the legendary ‘steampunk’ Truth Coffee, and taste local delicacies such as biltong and koeksisters near Bree Street.  

Take in the highs and lows of Cape Town history, from the Grand Parade, where Nelson Mandela addressed the nation after his release from prison, to the District Six Museum, which highlights the bitter, forced removal of the area’s residents during apartheid. The brightly painted houses and cobblestone streets of the Bo-Kaap provide wonderful photo opportunities – but don’t ignore the poignant history of the people living there. A visit to the spice shop is also a must!

Sit in one of the relaxed bars that line the Victoria Waterfront and listen to the numerous languages and dialects that fill the air. Sample the delightful cuisine, and discover a sensational blend of flavors as diverse as its cosmopolitan influences.

Walk past loud blubbery seals sunning on the pier and take the ferry to Robben Island to visit former South Africa president, Nelson Mandela’s prison cell. Go on a township tour to experience traditional “Cape Flats” life and African culture and cuisine.

Catch the “Hop-on-Hop-Off” bus to the cable way for a cable car ride to the top of Table Mountain, or if you are feeling energetic, and want to stretch your legs, you could take one of the hiking trails up and come down by Cable Car.
