    A wonderful place to stay

    by

    This was a great little hotel with the best breakfast around - or so we thought!

    A short walk uphill from the backpacker area Saaszeld Lodge is in a quiet area close to everything really. Plenty of shops and restaurants in the area and there is a laundry and internet cafe nearby. A short walk to museums, parks and Mount Nelson Hotel (important to note!!)

    Unique Quality: Quiet, very friendly staff - love to tell about the time Prince William - or was it Harry came to visit!

    No pool or fancy bar - just basic accommodation and great staff to help with your queries.

    Directions: Travel uphill from town on Kloof Street

Drive fron CapeTown to Whindhoek?!

by felakuti

We would like to drive from Cape Town to Whindhoek, you think is possible to do it in one day? our car will be a Opel Corsa Lite...
What is the best solution you think possibly avoiding the airplane!
Car?
Bus?
Train?

Are any advise or warnings for the route to Namibia?
Thanks to all replies!
Ciao

RE: Drive from CapeTown to Windhoek?!

by campbell2

Definately not possible!
I have driven this route on many occasions in a good car, but to do 1600 km's, incl. a border crossing is not feasible in one day.
Anyway, there is so much to see on the way, e.g. Fish River Canyon the 2nd biggest Canyon on Earth, why rush it?
Need more advice on South Africa and/or Namibia? I am happy to help!

RE: Drive fron CapeTown to Whindhoek?!

by hawkowl

Hi, - I agree that it is not possible for a 1-day trip. Besides, the countryside that you will drive through is mostly hot, semi-desert conditions. A Corsa Lite might be a bit uncomfortable, especially without airconditioning. Go for the flight option. Trains/ busses will take forever. If you must drive, provide for at least 2 days travelling. The border crossing is generally quick.
Enjoy!

Hi,

a lady from Namibia is looking to share a ride from Cape Town to Keetmanshoop. She is willing to pay for the petrol. Please let met know if there is any space available. The busservice to Windhoek is striking at the moment. They are Intercape: http://www.intercape.co.za

Travel Tips for Cape Town

Where to shop

by rachel_sun about Shopping Centres

Most shops in the city centre will have everything you could think of.The Golden Acre Centre on the corner of Adderley and Strand Sts has lots of shops and it is also connected to St Georges Mall by walkthrough underground arcades.
Cape Sun Gallery in this arcade has a nice selection of good quality shops and a nice coffeee bar to rest your feet after shooping til u drop ;-)
But my fav shopping mall has still to be Victoria Wharf Complex. This complex stays open to 9pm on Wednesdays and it has loads of great shops and restuarants,bars,coffee shops,art shops,local produce shops.I found the clothes shops here very trendy and very good prices and i bought loads of clothes ;-)
The Victoria Waterfront has everything,cinema,bars,Hard Rock Cafe,Clothes shops,food,jewllery,sports shops,food,art,,everything and anything.Its a good night spot too.

Chillin' like a local (from Santa Barbara)

by Bunsch about Melissa's, Claremont

Melissa's is half upscale food shop (try their specialty jams and chutneys by all means), and half superior cafe with tables inside and out and a luncheon buffet that is definitely worth the trip. A recent visit included Thai beef with noodles, a quiche with butternut squash and feta cheese, a salad of carrot, Granny Smith apples and mint in balsamic vinegar, and several other innovative and beautifully presented dishes; the menu changes daily, but there are also stock sandwiches available. I liked everything I tried on the luncheon buffet, but the knock-your-socks-off experience occurred when I tried the Christmas nectarine relish, which includes coriander, cardamom, onion, cinnamon...well, it gave an entirely new spin to our filet mignon!

Marcos African Place

by paradisedreamer

I prefer this place to the Africa cafe as it seems more authentic to me. They have a wide range of dishes with many different kinds of meat that you can try - Kudu, Springbok, Ostrich etc. The food was very good and service too. They play live music from about 8pm which creates a fantastic atmosphere. Prices are very reasonable.
