Cape Town is a marvelous city, and cruise ships sailing the African coast often either include Cape Town as a port of call or use the city as an embarkation/disembarkation point. South Africa is a long way from almost everywhere, so visitors need to spend a few days on a pre- or post-cruise visit to Cape Town and the surrounding countryside.
The three days in Cape Town before our Silversea Silver Wind cruise greatly exceeded my expectations. The things to do and see are varied, the history is riveting, and the people are friendly. Here are ten fun and educational things to do and see in and around Cape Town.
