4. Hermanus Whale Watching

Drive down the coast and you’ll find this wonderful little town that’s a super spot to watch the whales (June to December). Unusually, you don’t even have to get a boat and can see them from the shore.

5. Stellenbosch

One of the most beautiful wine making regions in the world. Book yourself into a couple of tours and try to decide which is better…the wine, or the scenery.

6. Table Mountain

One of the most famous backdrops to any city in the world. Take the cable car to the top and get a great view of the city. It often gets cloudy or foggy so plan ahead and try visit on a clear day.

7. Robben Island

The most sombre stop on the list is a former jail for political prisoners.  In total, three former inmates of Robben Island have gone on to become President of South Africa including its most famous resident Nelson Mandela.

“Instagrammable” in the fact that it’s important to keep sharing the history and stories of this historical place.
