How Long To Spend In Cape Town& Whether To Fly To Kruger National Park

by jeffa79

We're currently working on the principal of visiting Cape Town and allocating 5-7 days to do Table Mountain, Robben Island, Cape Peninsula (both The Point & Cape of Good Hope), Simonstown, Route 62 and Franschoek Valley, as well as maybe Hermanus.

The question after this is whether we fly internally to Kruger National Park (neither of us drive) and spend 1-2 nights there or whether we just stay and go to Aquila Game Reserve for 1-2 nights?

I think in total we are looking for around 8-10 nights in South Africa, so bearing in mind these requirements what would people suggest?

Is it worth the hassle going all the way to Kruger by plane or is the Game Reserve a more sensible option? Are we allowing enough time to do the other stuff around Cape Town?

I reckon that you should just stay in the cape vicinity- Kruger is another whole story- and will take up too much time flying there etc. everyone who I know who has been to aquilla has had an awesome time and although Kruger may be different in someways- Aquilla will be awesome. sounds like what you have planned will fit nicely into 10 days

The first answer here made it very clear, if you do not have the time to spend a week in the east side as well, just stay around Cape Town and make the best of it. There is so much to see and do, you cannot see it all in 10 days. I was in similar situation just short time ago and as it was on July it was easy to choose the east side for the better weather. Next time I will make it to the west.

Plus, if you are not going to drive stay away from kruger as you then rely on arranged game drives which are good but no flexibility and relatively expensive.

Travel Tips for Cape Town

Fish Hoek is a ‘dry’ town

by Jenniflower

By tradition, no retail liquor outlets are allowed in Fish Hoek – it’s a convention that dates back to the days when the village was a staging post for the wagons that carried goods between Cape Town and Simon’s Town.

The by-law was introduced to prevent drivers from stopping off for a dram (…or two… or three) and arriving at their destinations in less than a sober state.

Alcohol is served at the numerous restaurants in Fish Hoek, but there are no liquor stores. You will have to travel 5 mins by car to Kalk Bay or Long Beach Mall for that!

Catch a Wave

by lynnehamman

Despite the somewhat cool water temps, Cape Town has wonderful surfing spots.
Some popular surf spots include Muizenberg, Kommetjie and Noordhoek, Koolbaai, Strand, Blouberg an, Melkbosstrand, and Eland's Bay .
Scarborough has has a wide open beach, and surfers can be seen all day and every day, riding the massive waves.
The water is cold on Atlantic side , but Surfers Corner,at Muizenberg on the False bay Coast- has a more bearable temp.
Muizenberg also has many Surf Shops, that sell high quality surfing gear.

The well kept secret is out. Paternoster used to be a small fishing village on the west coast with a hotel and a padstal.(a stall next to the road) At the padstal you could buy home-mad jams, bokkoms(dried salted fish), fresh bread etc. The hotel was the hotel.

Suddenly there is a boom in the property market and everybody wants a piece of Paternoster. Lots of new guesthouses and B&B's is a definite sign of the tourist interest in Paternoster.

Even though it is expanding it is still a tranquil, peaceful little village with beautiful beaches and interesting people.

Internal busses

by Galyam

Actually public transport in SOuth Africa is on a very low level. Almost everyone that works has a car. It is really an adventure to get around Cape TOwn by the public transport.
From Camps Bay and Sea Point there are mini buses called - taxis by the locals. The price is about 4 rands and they are quite fast. But they also drive very fast, so this is not the safest transport in CT. Still, if you are a backpacker, they are much better than the expensive taxis.
My friend made this photo joke for me. I am sharing it with you :)

Worth the Drive to this Restaurant

by lynnehamman about Le Petite Ferme

About an hours drive from Cape Town , set in a valley in Franschhoek, this restuarant offers fine French/South African food, a superb wine list (South African wines are world-class), and has a picturesque setting, with wide lawns and views over the valley. The decor is eclectic - French inspired with antique furnishings and paintings on the walls. The ambiance is warm, friendly and the service always with a smile.
One can sit on benches outside and enjoy a glass of sparkling cold wine before dining. The views are worth any wait.
It is essential to book - this restuarant is always packed.It is popular not only with visitors, but frequented by Capetonians as well. Mellanzane Parmigiano. Layered Crisppy aubergine, with mozzerella, fresh basil and arrabiata suace, served with roasted vegatable salad. Delicious.
Apple crumble served with cinnamon flavoured ice creme and a brandy snap.
The Cheese Platter , served with Glace Cape Fruits
