Developed as a port by the Dutch in the 17th century, today Cape Town is a buzzing tourist destination in close proximity to some of South Africa’s finest vineyards, as well as the beautiful vistas of the Cape Peninsula.

The Garden Route is the ultimate South African road trip, as it stretches nearly 300km along the coast and its name is due to the vast range of wildlife and flora.
