Cape Town is not only the most popular international tourist destination in South Africa, but also one of Africa's most popular international tourist destinations. This is due to its good climate, natural setting, and well-developed infrastructure. The city has several well-known natural features that attract tourists, most notably Table Mountain with it's Table Mountain Cableway; Cape Point recognised as the dramatic headland at the end of the Cape Peninsula; The Victoria & Alfred Waterfront the city's most visited tourist attraction which hosts the Nelson Mandela Gateway, through which ferries depart for Robben Island.
The Cape Winelands and in particular the towns of Stellenbosch, Paarl and Franschhoek are popular day trips and are easily accessible from Birkenhead Manor. Whale watching is popular amongst tourists: Southern Right Whales and Humpback Whales are seen off the coast during the breeding season (August to November) and Bryde's Whales and Killer Whale can be seen any time of the year. The nearby town of Hermanus is known for its Whale Festival, but whales can also be seen in False Bay. Heaviside's dolphins are endemic to the area and can be seen from the coast north of Cape Town; Dusky dolphins live along the same coast and can occasionally be seen from the ferry to Robben Island
