Cape Town, South Africa

Cape Town sits at the southern tip of the African continent, and is a seaside gem for travelers willing to make the long journey. With dramatic Table Mountain and the ocean, it's no surprise that its often called one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

This "Mother City," the oldest in South Africa, also offers a wealth of culture and history. Tours run to Robben Island, the site of Nelson Mandela's imprisonment under apartheid, while the Castle of Good
Hope, built by the Dutch East India Company, provides historical context.

Wine tasting, whale-watching and concerts add to the diverse mix.

Cape Town has a Mediterranean-like climate. Summer, which runs from December through March, is warm and dry, with up to 14 hours of sun each day. The cooler autumn months are seen by many as theperfect time to visit.
