Take learning to new heights in Cape Town, where in the same day you can catch stunning views from Table Rock, explore a food lover's paradise, and follow the threads of a tapestry woven from many cultures. It's a stunning place to create a custom program that meets your precise needs, with a complex history that will stay with you always.
CREATE THE ULTIMATE PROGRAM
with one, two, or three six-week blocks.
STAY IN CAPE TOWN, OR
add blocks in Berlin, London, Madrid, Paris, or Rome.
Embark on a two-night/three-day study tour to a different region, like the winelands and coast areas of the Western Cape, or Sutherland in the Northern Cape Province, where the largest single optical telescope in the southern hemisphere, SALT, is located. Soak up culture and history with visits to iconic places like Robben Island, the Cape Peninsula, and Cape Flats.
Catch a cricket or rugby match at Newlands Grounds, go on a whale-watch, or explore museums and local theatre and music.
