A visit to Cape Town isn't complete without travelling to the top of Table Mountain. At its peak there's unique flora and fauna, viewpoints and a small gift shop and restaurant. Down at the historic harbour is the pretty Victoria & Alfred Waterfront complex with great shops and restaurants. Other must-see attractions in Cape Town are Robben Island, the penguins of Boulders Beach and the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden. The Southern Suburbs are Cape Town’s wine-growing region, running along the eastern slopes of Table Mountain. Camps Bay is a hip, happening beach area just 10-15 minutes from the centre of town, making it easily accessible for a quiet afternoon on the sand.
