Sounds like a busy trip!!

Hermanus for whale watching is good this time of year (or it was last October when I went) and get there in the late afternoon/early evening for the best views of the whales

To answer your questions:
N7 - main road traveling north up the west coast
N1 - main road traveling north east to Johannesburg
N2 - main road traveling east to Durban

1) You can sky dive from Delta 2000 (1 hour, N7), Phesantaskral(sp) airport (1 hour N1), but the place to go is Citrusdal (3 hours N7). There are a couple of operators - look them up using a search.
2) Shark cage diving is done from Gaansbaai (N7). You'll see seals at the Waterfront in Cape Town and Simonstown (45 mins south) is the best place to see penguins.
3) Whale watching depends on the season, but you can see them all around Cape Town. Hermanus is near Gaansbaai (N2).
4) The nearest place to go bungi jumping is near George - about 4 hours out from CT (N2)
5) They paraglide off the side of Lion's Head in the city. Don't know where they do hangliding. There is a sailplane club in Worcester (1 1/2 hours N1)
6) You can abseil off Table Mountain (City)
7) Don't know where you can go quad biking, but it is available. Probably about 45mins on the N7
8) There are some paintball places in town. Do an internet search.
The best way for you to do everything you want to do is to hire a car and drive yourself. It is the only way you are going to manage to do it all in 4 days.
Happy booking.

Travel Tips for Cape Town

Wow, there are so many...

by susie_fr

Wow, there are so many absolutely musts in Cape Town. Mmm let's see, I think one of the most important absolutely musts is to go up Table Mountain. You can take the super new cable car or if you are an energetic person, it is quite a good climb. You have a fabulous view over Cape Town and the sea. You can spend a whole day exploring the top of it and it is extremely flat. Not a lot of climbing skills needed. Sitting at the waterfront, watching the sunset while eating oysters and drinking beer.

Packing List

by mrsibf

Depending on the season, weather can go from cool and wet to warm and dry very quickly. Layers is the best approach. Just about everyplace is casual. Even in restaurants billed as 'smart casual' we saw people in jeans. Pack as little as you can and buy clothes there for about 30% of what you'd pay back home! Definitely don't bring safari hats, etc. from home. They're much better purchased locally.

Chapman's Peak Drive

by grets

The 10 km long road was cut out of the side of the sheer mountain walls in 1922. The road literally clings to the mountainside, with just a low wall seperating you from the ocean below - a drop of some 528 feet at the highest.

It is said to be one of the great scenic drives in the world - it certainly was spectacular!

Smile, you're on Candid Camera!

by Bunsch

Aside from the shock of finding that the right-hand lane in South Africa is the passing lane, the biggest surprise to me has been the kamikaze-like fervor of the drivers, not just on the interstate-analogs (N1, N2) but even on tiny suburban streets that barely allow two
vehicles to pass if both have one set of wheels up on the curb. Traffic enforcement, at least in Cape Town, is almost exclusively by camera. There are periodic signs along the autoroute with a speed listed and a camera icon. However, many of these are not operational cameras. You need to know which are -- because the rental car companies generally charge an "administrative fee" on top of whatever traffic fine is assessed if you're caught doing 120 in an 80 zone.

Maybe the best restaurant view in the world?

by CatherineReichardt about Boulders Beach Cafe

I often think that the Boulders Beach Cafe is a strong contender for my favourite restaurant in the world. Everything is right about it - from the interesting and delicious food to the ambience to the stunning view from the elevated terrace out across False Bay. Whenever I'm there, I make a point of smugly calling my parents in the (usually grey and weatherbeaten) UK to gloat!
In the winter and bad weather, they light a roaring fire, which makes it a particularly attractive refuge from the lements. We got caught in a squall a couple of years ago, and were drenched to the skin in the couple of hundred metres between the entrance to Boulders Beach and the hotel - I fell even more in love with the place as the staff enveloped us in dry towels as we stepped through the door (probably as much damage control as hospitality on their count, but under the circumstances, who would question the motive!). The image of my bedraggled husband (the only one who hadn't brought a change of clothes to the beach), trying to warm himself by standing in front of the fire, with steam rising from his sodden clothing will live with me for a very long time!
And oh, that view! The menu is varied with good use of local ingredients, and a predominance of seafood. Although most of the food has recognisable South African origins, there is often a slight Asian twist (I think that the chef is Australian?) and they also do excellent breakfasts. There is also a reasonable kiddie's menu and they are pretty tolerant of little people.
