      Fifth night in Cape Town or Simons Town

      Cape Town Sep 19, 2014 at 11:35 AM

      My wife and I and our six year old are staying in Cape Town and then traveling to Knysa and the garden route. We were going to book 4 nights in CT than and then one night in Simons Town, to see penguins etc. and continue on to Knysa from there. But an SA friend said to avoid staying in Simon's Town and just go see the penguins on a day trip and come back to CT (, so stay 5 nights in Ct and then on to GR).

      Thoughts, advice? PS. WE're going to be there in the third week of December. Yes, high season.

      2 weeks Cape Town - Garden Route - Addo - Cape Town

      Cape Town Aug 31, 2014 at 10:35 PM

      Hi, we are just in the early stage of planning a two-week trip from Cape Town and back next Easter. I've looked at lots of itineraries and forum questions but most seem to fly back out from Port Elizabeth. Does anyone have any suggestions for a round-trip by road? We want to go inland to Oudtshoorn, spend about 4 nights in Cape Town, do a number of wineries, see the main places of interest on the Garden Route and spend a day or two in Addo. There are 4 of us - seniors - and we'll be driving, but we'd like to avoid doing the same road twice. Any suggestions and advice appreciated.

    • Peer-to-Peer Vehicle Rental.

      Cape Town Aug 18, 2014 at 2:36 AM


      We are expats living in Kenya.

      We will be traveling to South Africa in December.

      We are interested in renting a Toyota Avanza(or similar) when in Cape Town and driving to my wife's hometown of East London.

      Does anyone know of any peer-to-peer vehicle rentals in South Africa?

      Here in Kenya, we can cheaply rent a vehicle from the locals and pay about $30/day including insurance, etc.

      Will be visiting Cape Town later this month for a first visit. Was wondering if someone could give me an idea of where I can shop for discounted school supplies and/or children's clothing. Will be visiting a few small communities that have requested these supplies as donations and thought it would be better to buy them after I arrive in SA instead of bringing them from home.

    • Honeymoon Destination?

      Cape Town Jun 1, 2014 at 6:09 PM

      Ok, first off I want to say that I know these are absurdly different destinations. My fiance and I are looking to book our honeymoon; we go on a resort vacation every year but we want to go all out on this one. We have two weeks set aside for the trip and are looking for something that will entertain/relax us for the duration of the trip. We don't have kids yet and we really want to make the right decision of which destination to choose because although we want to go "all out" we also don't want to come home broke when we could have chosen an equally enjoyable trip for less money. Cape Town is extremely expensive and our budget tops off with the group tours which are 6 days in cape town then 3 days somewhere where we do excursions and see the wildlife, then the last which i'm not crazy about is 2 days near some waterfall (which I'm sure is lovely but its the least intriguing to me). My fear is that I won't like being carted around South Africa with a group and the places outside of cape town may be boring other than the animal sightings. Our experiences with previous vacations is the all inclusive resorts are awesome but by the fifth night we are ready to go home. We are also considering doing a week in belize; a few days at Cayo Espanto and then a few at another resort and then follow up with a week in costa rica (not sure where yet). Lastly we are considering Greece but the same concerns about boredom after being in the same place for a week and then being stuck there for another week. I'm hoping some of you have been to any of these places can shed some light for us. Thank You in advance for your responses!!

      best places to stay

      Cape Town Mar 20, 2014 at 3:48 AM

      We are a young couple visiting S.Africa in September for 2 weeks. The first week we are spending in Kruger and the second in 2 different spots in Cape town. We will have a car for excursions but dont want to use it for everyday use so will want private parking. We would like to stay in a safe area which has easy access to cafes, restaurants, bars etc within walking distance. We are not big party people so the main party streets are out. So far I am thinking somewhere in camps bay with a view of the sea, and then a place near waterfront/green point. Are these areas any good? Any advice would be great! I understand this question has probably been asked many times and appreciate all your knowledge :)

      from airport to hotel

      Cape Town Jan 15, 2014 at 9:38 AM

      I'm staying in Circa Luxury Apartments Hotel at 12 Jetty Street, City Bowl, Cape Town. And I'm considering with a friend of mine if we could take a bus from the airport and then get to the hotel on foot or take a taxi to be driven straight to the hotel. We are on budget. My friend says that's very dangerous, that one can't see anybody on the streets with backpacks or suitcases. I do not know what to do. The plane is arriving at 9.40 on 20th Jan. ( Monday). It's during the day. I was told that the shuttle bus goes to the railway station area which is considered to be a dangerous place. Is it true? But if we are forced to hire a taxi what should we do no to be ripped off.
      Another thing is what to do till 2 p. m. till the time of checking in the hotel. They'll probably let us leave our luggage to be kept for some time but where is the nearest place to spend waiting for the room?
      I'd be grateful for your advice.
