Why would anyone want to waste their time in "The V&A Waterfront"?? Yes it's nice, but it's a huge, expensive and overpriced shopping mall.
Rather see the magnificent coast line all around the Peninsula. Enjoy seafood in Hout Bay. Go through the Cape winelands and taste wines at all the different cellars.
Beyond Cape Town there is so much more on offer:
The Garden Route (Cape Town to Port Elizabeth) is spectacular and have some of the most beautiful scenery you will encounter on the face of the earth. Close to Knysna there are natural forests were African elephants once lived in abundance. Unfortunately there are only 2-3 (??) of the big one's left in the forest today. However, the "mystery" surrounding these huge mammals, still make it a memorable experience to visit this area.
The Tsitsikamma National Coastal Park and surrounding forests are superb and while you're in the area, why not try out the "Rolls Royce" of bungy jumps at "Bloukrans Bridge"?? At 216m (709 feet), it's the highest bridge bungy in the world!
We also have some of the best and largest game reserves in the world. Kruger National Park, for instance, is larger than the state of Israel and is filled with fauna & flora and should guarantee a memorable trip.
South Africa is unique and has so very much to offer. It all depends on what you would like to experience, be it cities, nature, culture or people. We have it all!!!!
