Cape Town is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, nestled between mountain, forest, and sea. It offers world-class sundowner spots, scenic drives and some of the most breath-taking vistas you’ll ever see. Not even the locals get tired of these views. Here are some of our favorite scenic spots in and around Cape Town, for the next time you want to feast your eyes.

Johannesburg is South Africa’s most diverse, progressive and energetic city, the country’s best showcase for activism and optimism. There’s really nowhere better if you want to see the face of modern South Africa, and get a sense of how far the nation’s come and where it’s going next.

Though the city – like the rest of South Africa – is still dealing with the legacy of racial segregation, it has become a truly diverse place. Walk around Johannesburg and you’ll hear snatches of Afrikaans, Zulu and Xhosa, but you may also catch some Urdu, Hindi or Chinese.

High-intensity in everything it does, Johannesburg manages not only to be the country’s biggest and the continent’s richest city but also – at least according to the locals – the world’s largest man-made forest. There are some ten million trees dotted around, lending the place a surprisingly fresh and spacious feel.



The Apartheid Museum graphically portrays the apartheid story through photos, artifacts, newspaper clippings, chilling personal accounts, and film footage. The sights and sounds of the apartheid era assail visitors as they move through the thought-provoking permanent exhibits on an emotional journey through South Africa’s history. Paths follow the country through decades of oppression to the birth of democracy. Reserve at least two hours and preferably longer to get the most out of a visit here. Those interested in learning more about South Africa’s struggle for freedom, should also visit Liliesleaf Farm Museum, the former center for the leaders of the liberation movement.


Cape Point quite rightly has a reputation for being the most beautiful promontory on the planet. Stand atop cliffs that rise out of the churning turquoise waters and watch the gulls swoop beneath you. Stare out at the horizon and truly understand the meaning of the word “infinite”. Or walk the trails exploring the unique coastal fynbos and looking out for the critters that call it home. You can reach the top of the cliffs on foot or take the Flying Dutchman Funicular, and afterwards you can find refreshment at the Two Oceans Restaurant.


At the Lion & Safari Park, you can get up-close with some of Africa’s famous wildlife less than an hour’s drive from downtown Johannesburg. Animal interactions are the highlight here. You can cuddle a lion cub, take the Cheetah Walk, and hand feed giraffes. Self-guided tours are permitted, but you can also join a guided game drive in the park’s vehicles to see lions, cheetahs, zebras, ostriches, wild dogs, hyenas, and various species of antelope. Nighttime feeding tours and river rafting tours are other popular things to do. Make sure you adhere to all safety regulations and keep your windows up when driving through the park.


Lion’s Head forms part of Table Mountain, and offers magnificent 360-degree views of Cape Town. The hike up Lion’s Head takes you spiraling up along the contours of the slope, making it a relatively easy hike—also there is a little bouldering and chain climbing to be done. Each time the trail rounds the mountain, the views get more and more impressive, and the panoramic views from the top are incredible.


Exactly as its title states, the South African Museum of Military History traces the story of all the country’s military conflicts. Highlights here include the World War II fighter planes and bombers, as well as exhibits of tanks, ammunition, arms, and medals. Particularly interesting is the exhibit on medicine at war, which details the Zulu’s use of traditional healing during the Anglo-Zulu war, as well as modern day treatments used on the battlefield. Another exhibit unveils life in the trenches during World War I.


Robben Island was where Nelson Mandela and World Heritage site. It’s accessible only by boat, and the ride itself has some great views. From the island you’ll take in the unobstructed sea views and a unique perspective of Cape Town, Sea Point, Green Point, and Table Mountain. You may even be lucky enough to spot whales, dolphins, and seals.


Gordon’s Bay is about an hour outside of town, but it’s worth it for the sunsets alone. Crystal Pools features stunning pools where you can leap from cliffs into the crisp, cool water below. The beaches are quiet with incredible views of the sun going down over the ocean. There are frequently dolphins playing in the waves too!
