The ultimate mother city experience - designed to orientate you and give you an insight into the magic of Cape Town:
Historical Stellenbosch, with its Cape Dutch architecture is the heart of the beautiful wine lands, surrounded by stunning wine estates.
Less than 2 hours from Cape Town is the Aquila Private Game Reserve, home to 4 of the Big Five
The perfect combination for those with limited time, incorporating the best of the Cape Point and Wine lands.
The once quiet fishing village of Hermanus provides some of the finest shore-based whale watching in the world. See the southern right whales at play (Whale Watching - August - November).
Surface view snorkel or scuba dive (scuba diver certification required) near this magnificent predator in its natural feeding ground.
If you are new to Africa, I recommend you get together with me for some pointers on the area before venturing out and about. South Africa is really a safe place if you know which places to stay out of.
Please contact your travel agent to arrange for a South African visa if necessary.
Taxis are readily available at the airport for the 15min journey to the guest house.
Alternatively, a number of hire car companies operate at the airport, including Hertz, Avis, National, Alamo, Budget, Imperial and Tempest. Contact me for directions.
A pick up can also be arranged prior to your arrival, please contact me for more details.
Cape Town is one of the most beautiful cities. If you want to go on a Safari or sight seeing I can put you in contact with an operator, just let me know. See below for some ideas about sight seeing and safaris.
South Africa has moderate weather with a lot of sun.
Summer is from November up to April, with fine and sunny weather. Slacks and T-shirt will do you fine. If you want to go out at night, long pants and a collard short sleeve shirt is best.
During winter it can get quite cold with temperatures from -5 degrees centigrade up to low 20's. Bring warm clothes suited for those kinds of temperatures. Cape Town is also rainy during the winter time.
