The Mother City Cape Town and the Western Cape are regarded as one of the Highlights in South Africa. And are worthwhile a trip on on their own.
There are thousands of thing to see and do... I always prefer going outside the high season... referable spring (October - November). It is simple to busy in season and as the water is to cold to swim in all year... it really does not matter...
If you go in October your chances to come across whales (Hermanus) are also pretty good, everything s blossoming... and it is just great! If you plan to see Table Mountain go in the afternoon so you can see the sunset.
Take a picnic at Signal Hill the great South African wine makes things look even better :). Its just everything people say it is... and a little more.
