You’ve landed in one of the most prominent cities at the moment. Cape Town, South Africa is a fast-developing foodie town with plenty of secrets to unravel.

Ask for one of their two outdoor gazebos overlooking the water. Reserve dinner at La Colombe, one of the world’s best restaurants totally worth a stop at.
Day 2: Cape Peninsula and Table Mountain
Take a trip out of the city for a private tour of the Cape Peninsula. This region features stunning beaches and impressive vistas that take your breath away. One particular beach includes a few adorable guests. Boulders Beach is also known as a penguin sanctuary. Visitors can come here and meet the animals up close and within their own wild habitat.
Table Mountain flanks the beautiful city of Cape Town. Consider a sunset hike up the mountain or take the cable carts up to see the views of the entire city. Finally, resort to dinner at Signal at Cape Grace or Reverie Social Table.
Day 3: Vino
Start off the day with a walk in the downtown area and perhaps even some shopping. Then head on the Stellenbosch Wine Tour. You can even opt for a Cape Wineland balloon trip if you have enough time. Look over the rolling hills of the region and learn more about its variety while you sip on some vino. For a beautiful ending to a splendid day, book dinner at Constantia Uitsig.
