At the far end of the African continent, Capetown is not the place easiest to reach. Often coupled with a stop in Johannesburg and Kruger Park (safari) this city is actually a destination in and of itself, so plan accordingly. It’s buzzing with trendy restaurants, sophisticated hotels both grande dame and boutique, and the surrounding nature is astonishing. The nearby wine country warrants exploration whether you're a wino or not, with gorgeous scenery and first-class resorts and lodges. If you’re into adventures, aside from hiking the cliffs near the southernmost edge of the world, you can cage dive with great white sharks near Seal Island or Gansbaai.
