Need Help Organizing our time in Cape Town - 3.5 days in June

Jump to last reply

Hello and thanks for your help. My daughter (age 22) and I will be flying from London to Cape Town arriving 8 June at 10:00am. We leave for Botswana on 12 June. There are so many wonderful things to do but I have no idea what makes the most sense logistically and which activities are combineable. We are going to have to come back as we can't do everything but here are some of our "must dos" and "nice to dos." I would appreciate your help in organizing our time. We will have a driver as I don't feel comfortable driving. We are also open to suggestions for a first time visitor.

Must do:

Table Mountain

Robben Island

City Tour

Wine Tasting (2 wineries and a nice lunch. WE like both red and white. Interested to see beautiful scenery. We are from San Francisco so enjoy this kind of activity but a half day is fine)

Uthando Tour

Other things we'd like to do :

Penguins (Simon’s Town or Cape Town Central?)

Jewish Museum

The Great Synagogue

District 6 Museum

Interactive activity with animals

I think we would have some bandwidth to do a short activity the day we arrive, maybe outside where we can walk or one museum. Thanks for your help.

Nancy
