After weeks of waiting we are finally flying to Cape Town tommorow and just wondered how the weather is looking, is it warm? As it is here in the UK for once!

The good news is that it is probably warmer than the weather that you've been experiencing up until now!

Travel Tips for Cape Town

Moullie Point Lighthouse

by glennkasner

The Mouille Point lighthouse was declared a National Monument in 1973 and is a popular landmark, the light was lit for the first time on the 12 April 1824.
The original installation had two fixed white lights on the top of the masonry tower, it was upgraded in 1865 when the tower was increased to its present height of 16 meters and a 3rd order light replaced the two fixed lights which is still in use today. There is a great promenade stretching along the beachfront from Seapoint till the end of Mouille Point overlooking the Atlantic Ocean which is ideal for taking long walks or a jog


by Yzerfontein

To get a proper feel for the west coast, whilst not travelling too far from Cape Town, Yzerfontein is the place for you. About an hour's drive north of Cape Town. The town has the beautiful 1000 mile beach, accommodation and a few small restaurants. It's also next to the west coast national park.

Roadside Stalls

by pmarshuk about Wood Carving

Along the sides of the roads you will find stalls selling fantastic local carvings. We came across this one on our way back from Cape Point. At the back of the stall was a small workshop where a couple of guys were doing more carving, so it was authentic (but still for tourists).

Closure of the Fishhoek - Simomstown rail line

by CatherineReichardt

The Muizenberg-Simonstown railway is probably one of the most picturesque sections of coastal railway line in the world, and if you're lucky, you can watch whales frolicking in False Bay. The line skirts perilously close to the high water mark for most of its route, and it's safe to say that it would never have been granted planning permission today!
This is the southernmost extent of the Cape Town rail commuter network, and certainly isn't luxury rail travel! The carriages are battered and graffitied and the windows are so scratched that it's often difficult to see out, but it's still a blast to clatter along through the sea spray - and at less than R10 for a return trip (2010), it's a bargain that's hard to beat!
There are quite a few stops along the way, so consider getting off somewhere like Kalk Bay for a bite to eat, or stopping off at one of the little beaches along the way.
It is possible to travel on this route right into the heart of Cape Town, but I can't honestly say that it's worth it from a senic point of view, as the inland section is rather dull. Cape Town station is also a rather dingy place with dubious security. There is a visible security presence on the train itself (since the Cape Town Metro trains have a reputation for crime) - last time we took the train, we had 4 policemen in our carriage alone!
It used to be possible to travel between Cape Town and Simonstown in a more upmarket restaurant car called Biggsie's, which we did in 2006/07, but I'm not sure whether this service still runs. If it does, it's well worth doing, as the dining car was far more comfortable and well maintained (and you could see out the windows!) but I do recall that the set menu that we opted for was somewhat grim - the toasted sandwiches that our carriagemates had looked a lot tastier and were doubtless much cheaper!
Update (September 2010): clearly I wasn't understating the matter when I said that the rail line was just above the high water mark, as the section between Fishhoek and Simonstown has been closed since last (Southern hemisphere) spring to repair wave damage to the retaining wall and foundations of the line! Metrorail assure me that repairs are underway and that in the interim there is a bus service operating between Fishhoek and Simonstown. Alternatively, you could consider getting the water taxi between Kalk Bay (a couple of stops before Fishhoek) and Simonstown (see my travel tip) - more expensive, but probably more fun!

a Bit of Belguim

by glennkasner about Den Anker

Good food - GREAT beers. Be prepared to spend some time here. The Belgian beers are great and so is the food.
Service was a bit slow though but that gave us more time to enjoy the beer.
Nice vibe. The Beers
