Need Advice

by CAROLINEARCHER

Hi, I am visiting Cape Town for 4 days & also 1 night in Johnannesburg before I fly home, I have prebooked all meals in my hotels and have a couple of tours already booked, any ideas about howm much money I should be taking for my "spending money" bearing in mind the short amount of time i'm in the country.

I was thinking about £150.00, is this gonna be enough?

Any advice is welcome!

You don't say what sorts of things you might actually be doing, so it's hard to gauge what kind of spending money you'll need.

As for pre-booking meals in your hotel: WHY? There are tons of great restaurants in CT and it would be a real crime to just stay in your hotel rather than venturing out. Cape Town is not a scary place, and its neighborhoods are really interesting.

It depends on how much you want to spend on souvenirs. If it were me I would take more money.

Note a warning about the craft market located in the City Bowl. I bought an Ostrich Egg lamp there and when they wrapped it up for travel they switched the actual ostrich egg with a fake plaster one. I didn't find this out until I got home.

Hi
If you are just planning to buy a few small things and have money to get around then you will be fine. I do reccommend that you allow yourself the opportunity to have access to more money if needed.

bring your credit/debit card in case you find some nice things to buy.

enjoy

I'd ay you could skip the one night in Johannesburg. Central Jozi is really not a tourist friendly place.

£150 will go a long way in South Africa but, as another poster says, it seems a shame you will only eat in the hotel. There are loads of superb restaurants in Cape Town. If you take taxis it is safe even at night. Can't speak for Jo'burg though.

I'm back, I had a great time, and I only needed £100.00, it was part of a FAM trip (as i'm a travel agent) and most of our meals are paid for, but Cape Town is amazing, Franschoek was nice, Gansbaai was wet, but brill!

Thanks for the replys!

Travel Tips for Cape Town

Newspapers and Magazines

by mvtouring


The Cape Argus, an afternoon newspaper, and Die Burger, an Afrikaans-language morning newspaper, are the most widely-read daily papers, and provide general-interest news with a dash of politics and an emphasis on human-interest stories. The Cape Times, a morning newspaper, carries more international news and provides readers with greater detail on South African and international political developments. The Sunday Times, Weekend Argus and Rapport, the three major Sunday newspapers, include an addictive mix of sensation, summary, and detailed analyses of political developments. The Mail & Guardian is an excellent weekly read, published on a Friday, it focuses on South African, African and international politics, and is read by leaders and decision-makers throughout Southern Africa.

All these newspapers are available at stores throughout the Western Cape. You can pick up a copy of the Big Issue magazine at most traffic intersections. Proceeds of the sale of the magazine, goes to the vendor. Vendors are usually homeless people in need of an income. The two major newspaper houses also have excellent, constantly updated online versions:

Independent On-Line
Media24 (English)
Beeld (Afrikaans)
Die Burger (Afrikaans)

Take the scenic route

by pmarshuk

If you are driving west from Cape Town and have some time to spare its worth turning off the N2 onto the R44 (Clarence Drive) and taking the coast road to Gordon's Bay and following it round to where you join the road to Hermanus. The road parallels the coastline almost all the way with wonderful views and beaches.
At Betty's Bay you can stop off at Stony Point to see the Jackass Penguin colony. This is also a great place for land-based whale watching between May and December.

All under one roof at the Cape Town Waterfront

by Jenniflower about Cape Town Victoria & Alfred Waterfront

Cape Town's Victoria & Alfred Waterfront is a conglomeration of MANY shops of a high standard, formed around Cape Town harbour. You can buy anything you can think of here!

My uncle has an export business here at the docks. He retired in 2005 and my clever (hehe) cousin has takenover. He and his wife are visiting us in London in July 2060 and we look forward to seeing them! Woohoo! Okay, off that little nit of a family tangent now haha

Many people do not like the Waterfront. Yes, it is commercialised, yes it is pricey. But there is so much to see and do here, from the imax to craft markets, from sailing or helicopter rides, to buying books and viewing sharks at the excellent Aquarium, it is all here. Plenty of evening entertainment and great food too. Arts and crafts, everything non-arty and carafty too! There really is something for everyone here. Here's the catch. Even though there is everything you could possibly hope to buy here, it is expensive and priced for tourists. Locals are not able to buy at the majority of the shops. You can buy the same thing at a local mall for alot less. Here you pay a shopping premium.

South African Airways

by andreja20

We flew from Zurich via Jo'burg to Cape Town by South African Airways which is in my opinion one of the best airlines.

It was a pretty long flight, but the crew did their best to make it as comfortable as possible.

Get on one of the many minibuses which stop wherever passangers want to get off. It's a pretty cheap way to get from one place to another.

A "whale" of a meal

by phred1910 about Beluga

An upscale restaurant located in a converted warehouse. Really a good ambience, especially if you enjoy an urban feel.

I recommend this restaurant highly for the fresh seafood and if you want a "white cloth" night out. Lobster Bisque, followed by seared Tuna, and topped off with a creme brulee
