Southern Point (SA)

If you visit Cape Town, you MUST side aside an entire day to go to the Cape of Good Hope. Besides the rich history surrounding the Cape, the scenery it unbelievable. On the way down or back make sure you take Chapman’s Peak Drive which is unlike any road you’ve ever been on. Also, make sure you stop in Simons Town to check out the penguins.
