    hrs Estimate Duration

Explore many of the most emblematic attractions in Cape Town, including the oldest garden in South Africa, before heading for the airport. The past is best represented at the Castle of Good Hope, a star-shaped fort that the Dutch built in the mid-1600s. History buffs will find the castle’s military museum and the Willian Fehr Collection particularly revealing. The latter includes a treasure-trove of period furnishings that reflect the 17th-century lifestyles of the affluent. Cape Town’s architectural history will come to light as you drive down Adderley Street, a main thoroughfare lined with landmarks such as the Standard Bank Building and St. George’s Anglican Cathedral. The Company’s Garden blends architecture and natural beauty, as it is a botanical garden that is also home to revered buildings that include the South African National Gallery and the city planetarium. The harborside Foreshore district is intriguing as it is a cultural area that sits on land reclaimed from the sea.

• Browse two museums housed in a star-shaped castle that the Dutch built in the mid-1660s. • Behold the architectural splendor of Cape Town by driving down vibrant Adderley Street. • Stroll the Company’s Garden, a downtown botanical garden full of architectural treasures. • See how land reclaimed from the sea was used to build a now-thriving cultural district.
