Once we arrive in Cape Town we plan to hit the Cape Town night life by partying at a club on the evening of arrival. On day two we plan to do the Cape wine route and thereafter have dinner on the V&A Waterfront. Day three will be declared tourist day; we will visit Robben Island and dip our feet at the Cape of Good Hope where the Pacific and Indian Ocean meet. The tourist trip is not over as lastly we need to ride a cable car to the top of Table Mountain where we will enjoy lunch and a sun downer cocktail. This will signal the end of the road trip and it will be time to make our way home with a host of memories that will last a lifetime.
