Dolphin Trail

by ennestreven

Visiting Cape Town Jan 2010 and wanting to know how strenuous this walk is. I am fit but have had a successful hip replacement and enjoy cycling and cliff walks in Cornwall. Any advice would be welcome.
Also comparison between safari experiences at Botlierskop and Aquila.

Re: Dolphin Trail

Havn't done that particular walk myself, but have done the Otter trail which heads west from Storms river - the Dolphin trail goes to the east and apparently the terrain is similar. Be prepared for most of the trail being steep up or steep down. Very little level terrain. It is a rocky coast with many stream/river outlets. Also small patches of forest/bush with low stooped walking. The Otter trail has quite a high drop-out rate - I suspect that Dolphin is similar. A drop-out is not dramatic - there is vehicle access to many points on the trails.

Havn't been to Aquila or Botlierskop either. Guess that Aquila is the more canned/packaged version catering to daytrippers out of Cape Town who insist on having a "safari". Botlierskop is in a more natural setting and is more isolated from big city influences.

It is the Dolphin Trail I am contemplating!

Travel Tips for Cape Town

bareladiko restaurant,...

by gonatas

bareladiko restaurant, situated 27 km from cape town towards paarl on the n1 highway. It is run by a greek family. a heck of a lot of fun but you need to be a night owl to enjoy this as the party starts late.
tel: 021 981 2604. add: old paarl road, brackenfell
early evening the news cafe, durban street, bellville. for drinks and meeting people. when i get back to cape town the best thing to see is the mountain, then i know i am home.
the first thing i then do is go to the waterfront, where there is one of the nicest hotels.
the nightlife is great there;discos, bars, sea and the boats you can go for sunset tours which is splendid.
very international mixture of people in such a small place

Pockets, pockets....

by laurey81

A pair of baggy and lighweight combats were a godsend for us during our sightseeing. The big pockets accommodated the camera, sunglasses etc. and meant no need to carry a bag that could be snatched, or a visible camera round your neck to herald you as a tempting tourist for any muggers. Well worth it.

The Protea is the national flower of South Africa. You will find different species in the Cape Good Hope nature reserve. These flowers are protected, so do not try to pick them. Seeds of these flowers can be found in local shops and they are not difficult to grow at home ( in a greenhouse).
Do enjoy the beautiful colors

There is wild nightlife in the Cape ;)

by rachel_sun

I enjoyed shopping on the Waterfront.The clothes shops were the best ive ever seen.The markets were good too.The market at Grand Parade was lively and exciting and the market at Greenmarket Square was great.I bought a few crafts here.African carved orniments,i bought a huge african head and an african bowl.

Dont miss the excellent seafood and beef.


When in CT go to the Steenberg restaurant on the Steenberg wine estate. It is towards the wine route and really worth visiting. The food is delicious and not expensive at all. Do taste the Steenberg wine. It is a good idea to make a reservation as during the weekends it is rather busy.
