    Are you down to clown in Cape Town?

    Not all heroes have capes, but fortunately for all of us, South Africa does. Near the southern tip of the continent, where the Atlantic and Indian oceans meet, Cape Town is a vibrant, cosmopolitan city with loads to see and do. Visitors flock to the lively waterfront for its upscale shops, unique museums, and a wealth of world-class restaurants. Just outside the city, you'll find plenty of sun-soaked beaches, gardens, and national parks. A Cape Town vacation rental will put the sights, sounds, and tastes of a true world city right outside your door.

    Hike it up in Cape Town's national parks

    Into the great outdoors? Then leave your Cape Town vacation rental and head to Table Mountain National Park, an 85-square-mile preserve with steep, scrubby slopes, sandy beaches, and rocky shoreline. You'll find plenty of hiking trails, as well as a dramatic cable car that offers an easier route to the top. Boat rides are popular, and thrill-seekers can choose from a number of shark watching tours. If shopping's more your speed, stroll the Victoria and Albert Waterfront. This swanky outdoor promenade is home to a wealth of shops and restaurants, and you can find everything from haute couture to casual bites.

    Cape Town – and the rest is history

    From the V&A Waterfront, you can take a short ferry ride to Robben Island, just a few miles offshore in Table Bay. Here, you can tour the decommissioned prison where former President of South Africa Nelson Mandela was held for 18 years as a political prisoner. Afterwards, you can get up close and personal with marine life at Two Oceans Aquarium. The sprawling complex is home to countless species of marine life from around the world, including sand tiger sharks, penguins, octopi, and seahorses.

    Cape Town – living that mild, mild life

    About as far south of the equator as Los Angeles is north, comparisons between Cape Town and southern California aren't uncommon. The area has a Mediterranean climate, with warm summers and cool-to-mild winters. Average summer highs tend to peak in the upper 70s between December and March, while winter highs dip to the low 60s in June, July, and August. The pleasant temperatures make the area as popular in the summer as in the winter, and you'll find that prices for Cape Town vacation rentals tend to stay about the same all year round.

    Fauna, flora, and more-a in Cape Town

    Table Mountain National Park is home to the unique fynbos ecosystem, a belt of scrubby vegetation that's not seen anywhere else in the world. The park is also home to a penguin colony and numerous exotic species like rock hyrax, baboons, and ostriches. Zebras – once endemic to the area – have recently been reintroduced. There are also a number of sandy beaches and lots of rocky shoreline, and the islands to the west are home to a large seal population – which means you can also find plenty of great white sharks. You know, if that's your kind of thing.
