Safety

by AGRogers

Are there any special precautions I should encourage friends visiting the Cape to follow, should they hire a car and travel around the winelands ?

Re: Safety

by canuck68

I think they should be advised to use the same precautions as they would in any other city. Some suggestions might be: try not to look like a tourist, don't wear expensive jewelry, be careful when withdrawing money at ATM's and don't go into neighborhoods that look "iffy" and don't wander around after dark and so on. In other words, let common sense prevail.

The biggest danger for tourists around the winelands is to get a bit intoxicated and then forget to drive on the left side. Every now and again we read of tourists in serious motor accidents.

For the rest, the winelands are a very relaxed rural area with small easy-going safe towns where crime rates are quite low.

Driving directly to Cape Town airport from the winelands will take you on a road through a slightly seedy area with many traffic lights where you are obliged to come to a standtill. The better route is to go south down to the N2 and then use that to the airport - no traffic lights at all.

I guess I misunderstand the question Gerald. I thought the safety precautions were for CT and for driving to the winelands.

We (American couple with an 8-year old child) had no problems driving from Cape TOwn to the Wine region (we did Stellenbosch) and back. Just be aware of what is around you and use common sense. In the town of Stellenbosch, there are some poor areas; however, there are also some nice areas with good restaurants. If you are just doing the wieries, keep in mind that they are outside the towns, so you should't encounter much trouble.

I was on a conference in Cape Town earlier this year and the South Africans I talked to said it was safe just using common sence. I also have some friends hiring a car and driving around Cape Town without problems a few years ago

Wellington Wine Route

by jo104

As Stellenbosch wine route can be so incredibly busy in peak tourist season why not visit Wellington wine route, also there is plenty to do in Wellington on a visit here.

We paid a visit to Diemersfontein sampling some excellent Mocha, Chocolate Pinotage amongst other fine reds (ZAR 15) for tasting. On the Diemersfontein Wine Estate they have 20 room guesthouse, garden weddings, a large dam, a top notch restaturant & tastings 7 days a week. When I sampled their award winning 2006 coffee / chocolate ppinotage the aroma when it was being poured was just like cappucino heavenly. The label carries the words "It befriends - It converts - It seduces" visit www.diemersfontein.co.za (The products are available in other countries see website for stockists)

We also went to Ashanti & sampled some excellent wines which were incredibly reasonable. They have opened a small restaurant here as well the food is homemade and satisfying. At Ashanti you can sample all their wines for free and even though in comparison to Diemersfontein the wines are suprisingly reasonable they are good quality. I enjoyed the dry rose a bottle costing only R10 and the cabernet sav was only R25.

Bovlei winery we did not visit this time but the scenery is beautiful.

Amarula

by Joemidwest about Balcony at Tudor

For younger folks the nightclubs are easy to find. They start the party on thursday night and the band plays ( or the DJ ) almost until the sun comes up. Not as young as I once was I preferred the hotel balcony and a bottle of Amarula to watch the world go by. The marula tree cannot be cultivated, so it only grows in Africa. They say the elephants eat the fruit (marula) after it falls from the tree and ferments..... Now all of the elephants live by these trees. (just kidding)

Excellent Burgers and other food

by Martman about Spur

Granted, I have not been to Cape Town in many years. When I lived there until the late 1980s, I often visited the Spur and it was my favorite restaurant. I believe it is still just as good. There are branches throughout Southern Africa. All their burgers.
