    Ikhaya Guest Lodge


    Around 550 Rand per night for single including a yummy breakfast of eggs, pancakes or whatever you like.

    Unique Quality: The lodge is done up in african prints, crafts, furniture, etc. Most rooms have dramatic views of Table Mountain. It's delightful! The small conference center is a very busy and lively place. We were there during a human rights conference that drew around 20 people from all over the world. Later in the week, a group of SA educators were meeting to discuss SA arts education policy. One night we met a film maker from Johannesburg. The lobby lounge area is nice place to hang out after returning from dinner.

    Directions: Dunkley Square, Gardens District
    Lots of great restaurants located right across the parking lot.

Township tours

by Calim

Did anyonne ever participate in any of those township tours and can suggest the tour privider?
I am looking for a tout which is respectful to the people who live there and which gives you a chance to meet those people and talk to them to get to know their way of life better.

Thanks for your help!

Re: Township tours

Hi there
A few years ago I did a township tour with "Grassroots" arranged through my hostel and it was very good. They take you to 2 townships and you can meet the people in the shabeen (bar), Vicki's Bed & Breakfast and through walking around with the guide. The kids are great and all want to meet you as you walk around. They recommend not to give the kids money but I did notice you could donate at Vicki's. The company also gives a donation through your tour fees. Have a great time.

I lived in Cape Town for a couple of years and although I never did the township tour, my Dad and mother-in-law both did it when they came to visit. They really enjoyed it. I have a feeling they also went with Grassroots. I remember hearing that part of your tour cost does go to the township people. The only township tour I did while in South Africa was Soweto but we went in with a guy we knew from work who lived there, so we had a real local showing us around.

Travel Tips for Cape Town


by Zoe_bcn

Aii... what can i say about the Waterfront!!.. Its a touristic place, crowded of shops and restaurants. There is the Aquarium (very nice) where you can see the famous sharks! Try to go at 3pm, is their lunch time!! Great! There is also a little African Market where you can buy the "souvenirs".
From there, you can go to different cruises around the bay. From the Clock Tower depart the cruises to Robben Island (the trip takes 3 hours, the last one at 2pm.)

hiking in cape town

by antenna44

there's loads of opportunity to hike in cape town, from easy wanders thru to expert trails ... it's really a case of take your pick.
indian venster up the front of table mountain gets a bit hairy in parts whereas the walk up signal hill is a cinch everyone - but either way, the views arer awesome and stretch on for miles and miles. comfy hiking shoes or sneakers, comfy clothing that you wouldn't mind if it got snagged a bit ... a small backpack with water, fruit and energy bars and a light compact warmer jacket/ top - sometimes the temperature drop at the top of the mountain is mad.



For most Cepatonians, home is in one of the townships sprawling across the shifting sands of the Cape Flats. These are rife with crime and poverty, their dusty, litter-strewn streets are live with people and wandering livestock. Most white locals, and many coloureds too, wouldn’t dream of visiting here and will advise you not to. Don’t listen.
If you’ve toured any other Third World hellhole, what you’ll see here will come as little surprise. What is shocking is that it can exist in close proximity to such wealth and apparent indifference, and that the vast majority of residents should show visitors such courtesy and friendliness.
Taking a tour – the only way of safely travelling here besides making friends with and being accompanied by a resident – is one of the most illuminating and life-affirming things you can do while in Cape Town. Most half-day itineraries are similar. After starting in the Bo-Kaap for a brief discussion of Cape Town’s colonial history, you’ll move on to the District Six Museum, then be driven to the Cape Flats to visit all or some of the following townships: Langa, Guguletu, Crossroads and Khayelitsha. Tour guides are generally flexible in where they go, and respond to the wishes of the group.

Coming from overseas I recommend choosing an airline, that offers a multi media equipment in every seat.
I hate flying and I never can sleep. But with the KLM flight from Amsterdam to Cape town on a 777 even the long distance flight was a pleasure. So I recommend to check out on the internet, what aircraft is used when choosing the airline. I´d be happy to pay 10 or 20 € more and have an entertaining flight.

Food with a View

by DesertRat about The Two Oceans Restaurant

This restaurant sits quite spectacularly on the edge of a cliff overlooking the Indian Ocean with a view of the lighthouse up above on the point as well. And while the views are stunning, the food isn't far behind. I had a wonderful smoked chicken salad on fresh garden greens served with pistachio nuts, and honey and dill dressing that was really first-rate. Others at the table were raving about the fish, too. If you're down at Cape Point, this one really shouldn't be missed.
