Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens

by schmechi

Are Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens worth a visit during winter season (late June/early July) too?

Re: Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens

by henri123

this botanical garden is situated in an unique site thats well worth a visit whole around.
there are also a lot of hudge sculpture and a very nice view above the city.
i would recommend that visit anytime.

Absolutely. There are trees, foliage and shrubs that flower best in Winter- as well as many native species.
The tearoom/resturant serves excellent teas and lunches.
There are free guide pamphlets available- which will show you what routes to take while walking. Take along your camera- lots of photo ops.
Magnificent view of Table Mountain.

Yes! I was there last July and we had a lovely visit. Didn't get there until about 3pm but as the gardens were open to 6 or 7 we had plenty of time to wander around, take pics and enjoy the place.

I loved the natives and some of the really unusual plants, the sculpture garden and the hot house area (do that last as you are leaving). The views are great too.

Our national flower, the protea, blooms in winter. Agree with the other posts - the gardens are good all year round. There are also 2 good restaurants in the gardens.

Travel Tips for Cape Town

Capetown is a real mix of...

by ratcorp

Capetown is a real mix of people. your more likely to Dump into other tourists than locals. Never insult capetownians wines. Drink it ...LOL. They love thier wine. Capetownians are passonate about alot of things .
If driving around , just be very careful in crowded areas , pedestrians ALWAYS have the right of way. So be more aware of capetownians BREAKING hard for pedestrians . Capetown is VERY gay . If this isn't your scene , your will have a hard time trying not to see beatiful men and women sitting at resturants chatting and dining with each other. Don't be shocked by Nudist beaches and even the Nudist colony on Greenpoint ((graafs pool) if you don't like it , don't go there.
People in Capetown are funky , viby and can get very loud ...Its like the Rio carnival during the holiday season.

Xhosa township tour

by iam1wthee

Many Xhosas and Sans are Christians but they still hold on to some of their old traditions. Because I am a woman I was taken to the beginning of the "graduation ceremony" for the ending of their rites of passage from boys to men. There is a lot of singing and if you choose to stay long a lot of food. It may be best not to eat before you go since it is considered rude to say that you do not want to eat their food. If they do offer you it is best to just take a sample. As a woman you are limited to what you can ask because this ritual is secretative and is only kept among the realms of men. Sometimes they may also take you to visit a witch doctor as well. It depends on time and what you want.

Very few tours offer this but Cape Fusion is the one that I used.

Sunsets to die for

by GillianMcLaughlin about the Blue Peter

The Blue Peter lies all of 20 minutes from the Waterfront in Cape Town, following the coast road out west. Is sits at the foot of a tranquil little town, and has a beer garden that looks west, straight over Robben Island.

I cannot claim that there was anything spectacular about the bar in terms of drinks, music or food. But the location and the general laid back atmosphere made it my favourite hanging-out-of-an-evening watering hole!

They tell me thatm in season, it's a great whale-watching place... I'd loved to have seen a whale, but one evening gave me a sunset, the likes of which I've never experienced, and I doubt I'll ever experience again! Come as you are!... it is Cape Town after all!

Best Fish 'n Chips in the Cape

by sebblit7 about Kalky's

Kalky's (pronounced corky's) is a fish 'n chip sit down/take away restaurant in the Kalk (pronounced Cork) Bay harbour. It's busy, mainly full of locals! And the fish and chips with malt vinegar is the best I've had in the Cape, er actually maybe in SA. Fish (hake) 'n Chips, we don't have cod here, calamari and chips, seafood platters with prawns and langoustine, snoek (a local fish that tastes like mackerel) sardines and chips, buttered rolls. Good place to stop while doing the Cape Point visit. If you're coming from Kalk Bay to Cape Point, as you get out of Kalk Bay, turn left into the Kalk bay Harbour, over the railway line and Kalky's is at the bottom of the parking lot on the left. If you're coming back from Cape Point, then you'll hit Kalk bay Harbour, just before you hit Kalk Bay town, turn right, over the railway and down on the left. Be prepared for a bit of a wait especially on the weekend. Hake 'n Chips, delicious golden batter, fresh and hot, nice fresh buttered roll
