Cape Town
Sweeping beaches, towering hilltops, and picturesque vineyards adorn the landscape of Cape Town, dominated by the imposing Table Mountain.
Explore hidden gems such as Franschhoek Motor Museum and Fairview Wine and Cheese. Take a break from the city and head to Boulders Beach Penguin Colony and Bloubergstrand Beach. Change things up with a short trip to La Motte Wine Estate in Franschhoek (about 48 minutes away). There's much more to do: take some stellar pictures from Cape Point, do a tasting at Beau Constantia, look for all kinds of wild species at Platteklip Gorge, and step off the mainland to explore Robben Island Museum.

Plan my Cape Town trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Manila, Philippines to Cape Town is an approximately 22-hour flight. You'll gain 6 hours traveling from Manila to Cape Town due to the time zone difference. In February, Cape Town is a bit cooler than Manila - with highs of 32°C and lows of 19°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 16th (Sun) so you can travel to Maseru.

Maseru ©
Founded in 1869 by the British, Lesotho's main city--Maseru--lies on the border with South Africa on a plateau surrounded by red hills.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Ha Kome Cave Houses and Thaba-Bosiu National Monument. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Gates of Paradise Pass and Royal Palace. Take a break from Maseru with a short trip to Morija Museum & Archives in Morija, about 52 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: pause for some serene contemplation at Our Lady of Victory Cathedral, admire the engineering at Katse Dam, try to win big at Lesotho Sun Casino, and get a taste of the local shopping with Lesotho Co-operative Handicrafts.

To find photos, traveler tips, more things to do, and more tourist information, read our Maseru trip planning website.

Fly from Cape Town to Maseru in 7 hours. Alternatively, you can drive; or do a combination of train, bus, and car. Expect little chillier weather when traveling from Cape Town in February: highs in Maseru hover around 28°C, while lows dip to 19°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
