Sweeping beaches, towering hilltops, and picturesque vineyards adorn the landscape of Cape Town, dominated by the imposing Table Mountain.
Step off the beaten path and head to Grotto Beach and Bloubergstrand Beach. Explore Cape Town's surroundings by going to Franschhoek (The Franschhoek Motor Museum & Franschhoek Pass), Fairview Wine and Cheese (in Suider Paarl) and Stellenbosch (Spier Wine Farm, Wine Tours & Tastings, & more). Next up on the itinerary: take in the waterfront activity at Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Two Oceans Aquarium, take some stellar pictures from Cape of Good Hope, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Stony Point Penguin Colony.

Victoria Falls, a Zimbabwean town near the eponymous waterfall, serves as one of two prime gateway points to the majestic cascade and its surrounding national park.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to River Rafting & Tubing and Victoria Falls Snake Park. Take a break from Victoria Falls with a short trip to Painted Dog Conservation in Hwange, about 1h 45 min away. Spend the 8th (Sun) spotting exotic species with a safari tour. The adventure continues: take in the dramatic scenery at Mosi-oa-Tunya / Victoria Falls National Park, add some adventure to your tour with a kayaking and canoeing tour, stroll through Siduli Hide, and get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour.
