Posted on: December 04, 2008 at 10:28AMHello All, I am planing a trip next Oct to Cape Town. What tips could any of you whom have been there share with me to make my stay more pleasant. The simple things one would not even think of, without having been there, I have some travelling experience, but it has all been gained first hand, and this trip I'd like to be prepared first hand, as it is a long way from home. No matter how simple or complicated, please share your experiences. Much Gratitude Kindnesskiss report a problem
Posted on: August 21, 2009 at 4:42AMhello, if you are planning to be in Cape Town in October you cannot afford to miss the whale watching in Hermanus. It is considered the best land based whale watching spot in the world. Enjoy your trip, lilredshoes

Cape Town has so much to offer, I was fortunate enough to spend 5 months there studying, but there is so much you can do in just a week or so time. I would recommend staying in different places, depending on how long your trip is, maybe a hotel by one of the beachs a couple days, and then maybe in a city for a couple others. Safaris are one of the great things about Africa, but if you can't go to one of the big main parks in northern South Africa, I would not recommend the small 'game reserves' closer to Cape Town, it is just not the same. Make a list of some of the top things you want to do, then start making plans from there.
Posted on: December 13, 2008 at 1:40PMYou will love Cape Town, it is an amazing city. There is so much to do that I would advise researching the high points and make sure you pre-schedule the most popular things like a tour of Robben Island which is a very moving experience and can often be hard to book on short notice - but also make sure to leave your self some free time to go with the flow. It's easy to schedule every minute but you will want time to just sit outside with a coffee or a drink and enjoy the atmosphere. Be sure and spend some time away from the heavy touristed waterfront too as there are other interesting areas of the city. A day trip down to Cape Point including visiting the Boulder Beach penguins on the way back is a day well spent too.
