Here's what Trippy members had to say about attractions:

"1) I only have seen Cape Town to Port Elizabeth and back so not Kruger Park."  See More

"3) Hiking Lion's Head or taking the Cableway up Table Mountain National Park , or both"  See More

"For a slower pace you could head to the wine estates around Durbanville, Stellenbosch, Paarl and Groot Constantia for a relaxing wine tasting, spa treatments and the like."  See More

"Kirstenbosch National Botanical GardensKirstenbosch botanical gardens"  See More

"Use the bus when possible, take the Metro to Simon's Town (Boulders Beach) and drive for anything further - like Cape Point/Stellenbosch."  See More

"I would actually look into the waterfront, especially the V&A Waterfront."  See More

"If you like to hike mountains, you can hike the Platteklip Gorge trail to the top of Table Mountain and then only pay half for the cable car back down, about 100 Rand (CAD$12)."  See More

"Chapman's Peak between Cape Town and Hout Bay is not the craziest but is definitely one of the most beautiful."  See More

"Good options are Lion Sands Ivory Lodge in Sabi Sand and the Kruger National Park Reservations or Madikwe Safari Lodge or Marataba Safari Lodge in the North West."  See More

"Between Millers Point and Fish Hoek, watch for Southern Right Whales during summer/fall seasons."  See More

"My personal favourites (in no particular order) are: Swimming with penguins at Boulders Beach in Simon's Town Hiking up Table Mountain from Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens and then getting the cable car down Whale watching in False Bay(mindful that they're only there in winter) The Two Oceans Aquarium Wandering through Bo-Kaap (with its distinctive ice-cream coloured little houses) Hiking the Silvermine Trail and looking down over the Atlantic beaches - particularly Hout Bay The drive south along Boyes Dr, looking over False Bay and ending up in Kalk Bay Walking/riding along Noordhoek Beach The astonishing (and often overlooked) Heart of Cape Town Museum at Groote Schuur Hospital, where Dr Christian Barnard performed the first heart transplant Open air concerts in Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens in the summer, which take lace against the backdrop of Table Mountain - usually on a Sunday evening."  See More
