    • Area with pubs and restaurants

      Cape Town May 18, 2015 at 9:08 PM

      We are a couple in our 50s and 60s moving long term to Cape Town from Australia. We want to rent an apartment within walking distance to pubs and restaurants and a supermarket. Probably looking at a 2 bedroom for around R22k a month......
      Someone mentioned Big Bay as an option but that seems to be rather remote or isn't it? The city bowl was recommended but isn't that too noisy for us older folk?
      Are there any such areas in Cape Town?

    • re entry query

      South Africa May 24, 2015 at 12:28 AM

      Hi,

      •I am a UK citizen that travelled from the UK to Cape Town from 17 April 2015 - 04 May 2015
      •On arrival I received a Visitors Permit that would be due to expire on 16 July 2015
      •On leaving I received a Departure Stamp of 4 May 2015
      •I returned to the UK

      I was hoping to return to Cape Town to spend 6 weeks with friends from 15 June 2015 - 29 July 2015.
      I am looking for confirmation on whether this is possible. My question is, would I gain a new Visitors Permit on entry to Cape Town or would I still be entered under my old Visitors Permit which would require me to leave on 16 July 2015? I will be entering from the UK once again

      I have contacted home affairs but had a mixture of responses n I am just looking for some sort of clarification. Had anybody been in the same situation?

      Would really appreciate your help. Thanks.

      rainy days

      by Xtine9 Online Now Aug 8, 2013 at 3:52 AM

      I will be in Hermanus next Monday with some visitors from abroad.
      The plan was to go to Betty's Bay Penguins and Harold Porter Garden then a cruise to see the whales. The weather forecast is appalling so I need a plan B in case I can't do any of the out doors activities. Thank you for your suggestions

      Hermanus in May

      by oRi_5 Online Now Jul 6, 2010 at 2:14 AM

      Hi,

      My husband and me are planning a trip to South Africa next May. Part of our planned itinerary includes a 1 night stay in Hermanus. I've read that whales are generally there in June. So I was wondering if there is anything else to do in Hermanus if there are no whales. Would it be better if we just skip Hermanus? We haven't booked our lodging as yet.

      Thanks in advance for any help!

      shark cage diving recommendation

      by klmousseau Online Now Dec 2, 2008 at 1:50 PM

      Hi. My friend and I are looking forward to Shark Cage Diving for my b-day in May 2009. We are looking for recommendations of Diving Operators. I've looked at a number of different sites and I'm looking for some opinions and info please. We would like a safe operator of course, but we aren't looking for the busiest one either. I saw some that are quite reputable, but I am apprehensive that the boat will be packed. I would like an operator that may have a smaller max of passenger with a cage that allows just 4 or less divers at a time with maximum viewing. We'll be staying in Hermanus with a car so transport is not a concern. Does anyone know if underwater/waterproof cameras are available for rental in town? are we required to wear wetsuits? How are the sightings in late May?
      Thanks!
