Game Reserves near Cape Town

by sue_stone


We are visiting Joburg and Cape Town in November and are keen to visit a Game reserve. Our first choice was Kruger, but we aren't going to have enough time in that area (will just have to go there next time!), so am looking for options that are driving distance from Cape Town.

I have read about:

- Aquila Game Reserve

- Fairy Glen Game Reserve

- Garden Route Game Lodge

Anyone been to any of these, or know people that have? Any negative or positive feedback would be appreciated.

Thank you

Consider a day trip out of Johannesburg to Pilanesburg before looking at a day trip out of Cape Town to one of those "theme" parks. In Pilanesburg, the lions and the tourists roam free - near Cape Town, it is all "managed".

Thanks for the suggestion, Pilanesberg does sound good. Perhaps I may be able to free up one day for a visit whilst we are staying in Joburg.

I was in Pilanesberg last November for a week and I highly recommend it. There is lots to see.

Travel Tips for Cape Town

do the Garden Route

by debora_m

It was raining four days of the five-day tour but still we had so much fun and visited so many nice and interesting places. The standard of the accommodation was quite high in comparison to the price of the tour.
We booked trough Adventure Village, Longstreet, the tour was operated by BokBus

The true culture of the Western Cape

by glennkasner

If you have a day to spare, hire a car and head off up the West Coast road past Blouberg. After about half an hour turn left to the town of Yserfontein with its unspoilt beaches and natural charm for a quick refreshment stop.
Now continue back along the West Coast until the turn of to the West Coast National Park.
During the spring months one can see a blaze of colour as the wild flowers come into full bloom. Also to be seen is a good variety of wildlife and beautiful natural scenery. Situated in this park you will also come acreoo "Eve's footprints" - the fossilised footprints of early man. Once you're ready take the road to the town of Langebaan, once a whaling community but now a popular holiday village. Lunch or dinner at the Strandloper outdoor restaurant is a must.
Time allowing continue to explore the towns of Saldanha or Patenoster.
I personally recommend that you stay over at Blouwaterbaai Holiday resort where Andre & Marianne Wicht ( old school friends of mine) will host you in style and true West Coast hospotality.

Canal Walk

by cokes about Shopping Malls

With more than 400 shops to choose from, Canal Walk is Africa's largest and most exciting retail and entertainment centre, offering the most compelling, comparative shopping experience under one roof on the continent.

It has however been designed to offer more than just an unbeatable shopping experience. From its breath-taking architecture, to the live events and promotions staged regularly in its state-of-the-art promotions court which also boasts its own television station to its 40 restaurants, coffee shops and pubs, Canal Walk has been designed to entertain. There`s so many shops there , I would not be able to tell you where to begin.

From North America the best...

by klkdmillar

From North America the best way is by air via London, New York or Miami.
Public transportation is not as good as in North America therefore, the best way to get around Cape Town would be to rent a car, or by taxi.


by BerniShand about Mariner's Wharf

Someone asked me once to describe the taste of lobster and I failed miserably, there really isnt anything to compare it to. So, when you have a yearning for lobster nothing else will do. As we were both in a lobster mood and we were driving the Hout Bay we stopped at Mariners Wharf and went in the Wharfside Grill & Restaurant for a late lunch
this is a very quirky restaurant, inside its like being aboard a ship and the staff are dressed in sailor outfits, it could look tacky but it doesnt, its great. we chose to sit outside on the terrace overlooking the beach and watch the children and dogs playing in the waves

we had no need to read the menu as we know exactly what we wanted but as we flicked through it to find the wine list we noticed it contained a wide selection of dishes, you can see the menu on the website below
Our lobsters were beautiful, served with fries or potatoes and a pot of lemony garlicky sauce and a good bottle of Pinocet wine. this isnt the cheapest place to eat lobster around the Western Cape but compared to UK prices was a great meal at a reasonable price
