This week's destination: Cape Town, South Africa
Considered by some to be the Miami Beach of Africa, Cape Town is one of the most popular tourist destinations on the continent. The development of this harbor is something that is sure to shock anyone who has preconceived notions of what an actual African city looks like.
- Table Mountain - A giant mountain with a flat top, Table Mountain is Cape Town's biggest tourist attraction. The centerpiece of the Table Mountain National Park, visitors often hike to the top to get a view of the entire city.
- Cape Town Beaches - Cape Town's beaches are divided into three different regions (False Bay, Atlantic Seaboard, and West Coast), each offering something different.
- Victoria and Alfred Waterfront - Located on the docks on the Port of Cape Town, this is Cape Town's most heavily visited area by foreigners. Offering visitors entertainment, shopping, dining, the Two Oceans Aquarium, and even a bit of history.
- Whale Watching - Many of Cape Town's beaches and locations offer visitors the chance to see Whales in their natural element. There are different breeds that can be seen during different times of the year. These include: Southern Right Whales, Humpback Whales, Bryde's Whales, and Killer Whales.
- Township Tour - For those looking for a real African experience, it's possible to spend an evening and take a tour of a real African township. Though not the most glamorous, spending an evening in a township is said to help give visitors a taste of what life is like for most Africans, offering visitors an eye-opening experience.
- Safari - Of course, no trip to Africa is complete without going on an African Safari. A few miles outside of Cape Town, lies an African landscape that acts as a home to many oanimals that people love so much: Buffalo, rhinos, giraffes, leopards, and lynxs are all cohabitors of this completely natural environment.
