Cape Town Information
Cape Town is South Africa’s second largest city. It is famous for its spectacular geographic setting with the iconic Table Mountain overlooking “the Fairest Cape in all the world”. Forbes calls it one of the most beautiful cities on the globe. Apart from its physical beauty, Cape Town boasts great cultural diversity, a vibrant jazz scene, and is at the heart of a legendary wine producing region. Its significance in the overturning of apartheid cannot be overemphasized.
|Additional Independent Travel
Students can participate in an optional, non-credit independent excursion to a South African game preserve, to the beautiful wine country or to the breathtaking seacoast near Cape Town. While such independent options are not a formal part of the program, the course leaders will be available to suggest how interested students might best take advantage of this unique opportunity. Interested students will work directly with vendors to secure the bookings and make payments.
