Cape Town

Cape Town & The Wine Region
Cape Town, the "Mother City," is the oldest city in our country and has a cultural heritage spanning more than 300 years. Here you'll find South Africa's top tourist attractions: Table Mountain, The Cape of Good Hope, Robben Island, Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens and the V&A Waterfront. Home to two oceans (the warm Indian Ocean on the east; the Atlantic on the west) the modern, vibrant Cape is the ideal seaside destination. And, when you've had enough of bustling city life, the rolling vineyards of Stellenbosch are just a short way down the road.

Cape Peninsula
Here it is -- the South African coast straight out of your junior high history books. Tourists flock from around the world to the famed Cape of Good Hope (or Cape of Storms). At this high, windy tip of the continent, you'll feel truly on the edge of the world.
After marveling at the views, a short drive up the twisting, baboon-lined road reveals another famed locale: Boudlers Beach, home to some 3,000 African Penguins.
If you still have an appetite for rugged scenic beauty, a drive over Chapman's Peak Drive will leave you with visions you won't soon forget.

Table Mountain stands proudly in the center of a bustling city, creating an atmosphere like no other. Though the city at its feet is packed with models, celebrities and tourists frolicking in the shop-lined streets and nightclubs, the magestic flat-topped peak maintains its wild, earthy stance. The mountain is home to more plant species than the entire Bristish Isles.

South Africa has over 247,000 acres of rolling vineyards, and wine tourism represents one of the country's largest growth industries. Many argue that the South African wine region, mostly situated near the coast of the Western Cape, produces the finest wines in the world. In fact, the South Africa won 19 best-in-class gold metals at the 2007 International Wine and Spirit Competition.
Many of our most popular South African Dream Travel vacations include a day or two on the Cape's famed wine trail, where you'll enjoy tastes of the area's finest wines and cheeses as you stare out over the well-groomed vineyards and rocky horizon.
