School trips to South Africa
Golden beaches, striking street art, and the incredible Table Mountain make Cape Town a difficult destination to dismiss. Proudly multicultural, it also offers a fascinating insight into South Africa's troubled past and the fragile harmony which has now won through. The District Six Museum provides a powerfully moving reconstruction of the township from which 60,000 inhabitants were forcibly removed under the 1970s apartheid regime, while Boulders Beach, where 3000 jackass penguins have made their home, is a great trip out. Jump on a cable car, which run every 20 minutes, to the top of the 1086m-high Table Mountain, or take a day out to visit Aquila Game Reserve to spot African elephants, lions, leopards, Cape buffalos, and rhinos.
