Driving from Kruger Park to Cape Town

by itchie75

How long in distance and time is it to drive from Kruger to Cape Town? Is there a coastal road to take or only direct roads through Johannesburg? We are trying to find a scenic drive. Thanks.

Also we are staying at a place that is about 90 minutes north up the coast from C'Town but we could change that to sty closer to C'Town. We are not into the night life and more into the beach, diving, relaxing. And any good dive locations to recommend.

Thanks for any suggestions

Well, I didn’t really calculate it but try to imagine driving from Dallas to Miami, it will take long time and there is no highway all the way. Sure, there are plenty of places to visit on the way, but you will need at list couple of weeks to enjoy it.
Best is to fly, domestic flights are very affordable.
If you rent a car, I suggest rent in both places, many do so and it saves lots of time and hassle.

From Numbi Gate (Kruger National Park) to Cape Town is 1842km. If you have your heart set on a road trip, the distance from the Kruger to Richards Bay (Northern Natal) is 648km; from Richards Bay to Durban is 182km; from Durban to East London is 667km; from East London to Port Elizabeth is 300km and from PE to Cape Town is 756km.
As you will appreciate, these are significant distances and it all depends on how much time you have at your disposal.

For us Cape Town folk who visit Kruger and go directly, we split the journey over 2 hard driving days of about 8-10 hours each.

You looking at about 2000kms... There are a number of different routes you can take, and you do not need to go through Johannesburg.The roads are all tar roads, but you would need to download a road map of South Africa, as your route would depend on what you want to see.. You looking at 2 days of driving,and then if you want to stop often along the way, it will take much longer

If you're looking for a coastal, scenic route, I'd like to suggest the Garden Route, but I don't think I'd start the drive from Kruger ~ I'd fly to Durban and start from there.

It's still a long drive, but it's interesting and historic and beautiful if you have the time for it!

Here's a website with information: http://www.gardenroute.co.za/

Hope this helps!

Travel Tips for Cape Town

Gay Cape Town

by michaelct

If South Africa is the world's "rainbow nation", then the Mother City is it's reigning queen! Cape Town is home to a thriving gay and lesbian community network and host to a range of dazzling bars, clubs and events. Cape Town is regarded as one of the most beautiful cities in the world and has been voted one of the Top 5 Gay travel destinations.

Friendly, relaxed and open-minded people, breathtaking scenery, gay and lesbian accommodation like hotels, guest houses, bed and breakfasts, luxury villas or self catering apartments and restaurants of international standard makes the Mother City the friendliest gay city in Africa.

Gay accommodation in Cape Town is of a very high standard. You find lots of info (bars, clubs, accommodation etc) on www.zanzee.com

Cycle the Argus Cycle Race

by Eish

35 000 people cycle this picturesque bicycle race from Cape Town in March every year. It is just over 100km, around the peninsula and close to Cape Point, then along Chapman's Peak drive, back to Cape Town. People are grouped into starting groups depending on their seeding based on previous cycle races that they have finished (only 60% of the field is seeded, and the unseeded riders start latest), and the groups start from the Cape Town City Centre. The route goes up and down on the highway past Groote Schuur hospital, Cape Town University; along a very social section through Fish hoek, Kalk Bay, Simonstown; then onto the quieter part of the route past the Cape Point nature reserve and then through the tiny village of Scarborough; towards Kommetjie (with one of the best beaches on this planet - but you can't stop here); then onto the magnificent and energy sapping Chapman's Peak, down towards Hout Bay, over a sneaky hill called Suikerbossie towards the sophisticated set in Camps Bay and Clifton; and then on to the finish, where you can get yourself a beer. International entries are normally accepted well after the closing of the event for locals (in 2008, you can enter right up until the Saturday before the race!) Locals log on to their website within a few days to weeks after the entries open if they want to get a place.

The winning time for is 2 hours 32 minutes (for men), and about 1300 people do the race in a sub-3 hour. The average time is 4 hours for men and 4 hours 40 minutes for women. I'm not telling you MY time. Average age is 40 years - that's where I am on par with average. If you finish within 7 hours, you get a certificate.

All funds raised go to non-profit organisations: Rotary, and the Pedal Power Organisation. Bicycle - although this is a road race, there are many people who do it with a mountain bike. No helmet no ride.

DIVE WITH THE GREAT WHITE.

by PEE-WEE

Gordon's Bay to Cape Agulhas
This stretch of coastline is an absolute must for nature lovers and especially marine enthousiasts, who have done the Big Five. Dive with Great White Sharks and go and see Whales and land-based African Penguins - the ultimate marine thrill

Taxi around Cape Town

by rcsparty

If you are planning on taxi'ing around Cape Town, I would recommend getting one called from your hotel, and then provided you are happy with the driver, keeping his number for future needs. After my initial taxi ride, I was able to arrange drop offs/pick ups with the same driver, saving the hassle of trying to find a cab later. You do not want to be stuck without a taxi and have to walk any significant distance at night.

Steak and Game

by johnaalex about The City Grill

In the V&A Waterfront area, this restaurant specialises in steaks and game. I have been here a few times and never been disappointed in the quality of food and the service. Also, as somebody who does enjoy a large steak, they do cut their meat to order. If you want to try something more “exotic” then Springbok, Ostrich and Crocodile are usually available. The steak ;-)
