Staying in Capetown

by annee5

Hello all,
We are 3 women staying in cape town next March, originally we wanted to stay in an apartment at the waterfront but cannot seem to book a 3 bedroomed one as all booked, we are now looking to rent a villa for 4 nights and were considering the camps bay area as looks lovely, we just wanted to know how far would it be to travel to waterfront as we wanted to be around the action so to speak..is there much to do in the camps area ? we wanted to be in a safe area where it wouldn't be a problem to wander around after dark and also would we be safe renting a villaq on our own or should we be in a secure complex...sorry if i sound like i haven't researched this..i have but head now hurts with research overload and still confused :)

Many thanks in advance

Camps Bay to V&A Waterfront is 8km (5 miles). Camps Bay beachfront Main Road strip is lively at night and safe to walk.

Sorry, this post isn't linked to your question - but Gerald, I sent you an email to your VT email address - not sure if you got it? I didn't realise they did email initially.

Best wishes

Heide

I try to avoid the VT mail - I get enough other mail already!

Oh ok, well this is what I sent you (in case you were interested):

Hi Gerald,

Have just figured out that I can email you direct instead of putting posts on
the forum page. I (and Mark my boyfriend) just wanted to thank you very much
for getting me started on our SA itinerary. We have just about completed all
the stuff we need to do before we go!

We booked our vehicle from a good hire company and I've just booked a lodge
(Ezulwini Riverside Lodge) up in the Kruger Park for the end of our stay, which
is right in the heart of KNP. Malaria tablets are all sorted out for when we go
up there. I've also done all the research of what there is to see in the areas
you suggested and the campsites there and it all looks terrific. We are just in
the process now of booking our first night in CT (staying at the V&A Hotel as a
treat), plus the whale watching. Mark wants to go shark diving, but I'm not so
sure... But I suppose it will be a challenge as long as it is all ethical - my
only encounter with sharks has been watching Jaws from behind the sofa, although
I have watched quite a few documentaries where it seems that they aren't the big
maneaters they are portrayed to be - quite a lot of the time they'll bite
someone and then let go when they realise that it's not a seal.

Anyway, I will get in touch with you a bit closer to the time via virtualtourist
and if you still want to go for that coffee I'll give you my mobile number.

Best wishes and hope you are well,

Heide

Travel Tips for Cape Town

Kaapse Klopse - 2nd Jan 2005

by mvtouring

The Cape Minstrals happens annually on the 2nd January. It is a huge parade of people dressed up and dancing in the streets, with a brass band providing the music and also some of them have drum majorettes in their teams. They compete against each other in various categories i.e. music, dancing, costumes etc.

Berlin Wall

by Airpunk

Perhaps Cape Town is not the first place you would expect a piece of the Berlin Wall, but here it is. When you arrive by car or bus at the Victoria and Albert Waterfront,. You’ll see a BMW dealer. And just next to this building, there is it. Somewhat hidden and perhaps deserving more attention. This piece was a present to Nelson Mandela and the people of South Africa during a visit of Mandela to Germany in the late 1990s. Why don’t come and see it when you are going to the Waterfront anyway ?

Excellent handicrafts

by Joemidwest about Greenmarket Square

People from South Africa and neighboring countries bring their crafts here. Masks, handpainted ostrich eggs, woodcarvings, malachite carvings?, clothes, etc. etc. Bargain, but everybody has got to make a living.

AIRCRAFT.

Takeaway at Fish Hoek beach

by Jenniflower about Drifters

This is the third sister restaurant on Fish Hoek Beach. It isn’t a restaurant, merely a take away place, attached to the Bistro.

If you feel like a stroll along the catwalk and/or Fish Hoek Beach, this is the place to go!!!

There is plenty of parking in the Fish Hoek Beach parking lot, and the beach is popular for families, so a takeaway is popular here. You can get all kinds of things here, hot foods, crisps, cool drinks etc.

The only thing we ever order here is vanilla and chocolate ice cream, with a flake, in a cup. It is seriously tasty ice cream I have to say, and a highlight of our holiday always!!!
