Walk to the lighthouse and keep an eye out for penguins – there are around 13,000 living on Robben Island.

South Africa's oldest colonial building, the Castle of Good Hope, is located close to Cape Town's city centre. The pentagon-shaped castle was built between 1666 and 1679 and was originally used as a fortress. Over the years the building has been a prison and headquarters for the army. Today the Castle of Good Hope is open to the public and houses the Castle Military Museum. Take a guided tour of the castle and enjoy a picturesque horse and carriage ride at sunset.
