Cape Town, South Africa
Cape Town is at the southern tip of Africa, where the Atlantic and Indian Oceans meet at the Cape of Good Hope. Situated at a major crossroads of the maritime world, Cape Town is a cosmopolitan city with residents and visitors of many nationalities. The climate is not too warm in summer, not very cold in winter, and rather Mediterranean in character, with cooling breezes and even strong winds to cool hot days.

You may choose to ride by cable car to the top of Table Mountain, a distinct landfall for mariners for centuries, and now a National Monument with magnificent vistas. On the eastern side of Table Mountain lie Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, a National Park, boasting thousands of indigenous plant species.

Visit notorious Robben Island where during Apartheid political prisoners were kept.

There are many restaurants with all sorts of cuisine, as well as pubs and night clubs - in short a very active nightlife for your enjoyment. If you want to go diving, go to Kalik Bay, or swim at one of the many gorgeous beaches close to Cape Town.


Luderitz, Nambia
Lüderitz is a harbor town in south-west Namibia, lying on one of the least hospitable coasts in Africa. It is a port developed around Robert Harbor and Shark Island. The town is known for its colonial architecture, including some Art Nouveau work, and for wildlife including seals, penguins, flamingos and ostriches. It is also home to a museum, and lies at the end of a currently decommissioned railway line to Keetmanshoop. Just outside of Lüderitz lies the ghost town of Kolmanskop, a prominent tourist destination. This previously bustling diamond town is now abandoned, and fights a constant struggle against being buried under the shifting sand dunes of the Namib desert.

St. Helena Island, Nambia
St. Helena Island is in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean and is very isolated. It is the most populous of the United Kingdom's territories in the South Atlantic.

The Portuguese discovered this island in 1502 but taken over by the British during the 17th century. At the time it's primary purpose was a "refreshment station" for ships traveling to and from the East. This purpose faded when the Suez Canal was build in 1869.

Napoleon was briefly exiled here before his death. His two residences are open to the public. The most prominent house on the island is that of the governor, also open to the public.
