cape town, covered

This incredibly unique city skillfully blends together a relaxed beach town, a cosmopolitan vibe and an abundance of natural beauty. Cape Town is an alluring, present-day hotspot that has something special for every type of traveler—evident in the number of tourists wandering the city year-round. Wake up with a coastal ride along Chapman’s Peak all the way to Boulders Beach where you can swoon over adorable penguins. Lunch in a Stellenbosch vineyard before going on your wine tasting way. And after you’ve sipped on a gin & tonic overlooking the sunset, indulge in one of the city’s many gastronomic experiences.
