• Cape Town has landmarks and adventure

    2010-06-29

    Africa travel offers some unique opportunities, like safaris, that can't be undertaken in other parts of the world. For those who want to experience this, South Africa is a great place to base a vacation, because it has the infrastructure that many other African nations lack. Cape Town, the legislative center of the country on the southern coast, offers both world-class accommodations and serves as a gateway to the rest of the country.

    In Cape Town itself, travelers should be sure to check out the famous beaches. The area is also a great surfing spot, and those who don't have the energy for a full safari might like watching the seals playing by the waterfront.

    The area is also home to numerous vineyards and winelands, where vacationers can sample the local flavors.

    The nearby Table Mountain offers a spectacular view of the surrounding area. There are several climbing routes up the mountain, but most travelers will likely opt for the cable car. Table Mountain National Park is also the site of the Cape of Good Hope, a world-famous landmark.

    While wildlife is a big draw of the region, travelers should beware of the baboons that call the region home. These mischievous monkeys have no fear of tourists, and are known to steal food and objects. As with any vacation, travelers should protect their belongings with travel insurance.
