“Cape of Good Holidays!”

Expensive flights, not safe at night!

This time last year I was in the beautiful country of South Africa, sitting by my aunties pool sipping Guava Juice, and letting the glowing rays turn my skin into a warm brown. My mum and I went out to South Africa to visit relatives, my Nan (Mum’s mum) my Auntie and her husband and three...

Helluva long way, safety off the beaten path.

Every now and then, you need to do something totally extravagant. So, when we were looking to celebrate a special occasion a couple of years ago, we were thrilled to find a discounted weekend break to Cape Town. Now you might think it is crazy to go all that way for a long weekend, but the beauty...

I didn't see them yet

Cape town must be one of the most beautiful places in the world. TABLE MOUNTAIN The mountain is amazing. You can go up by cable car or climb it. From Kirstenbosch, the botanical gardens, you can walk up. I must admit we only walked up a short way so I don't know how long it will take. From the...

“Tips for tourists”

published 06/03/2003

Risk of crime

Last September we visited Cape Town and had a fantastic value for money holiday. South Africa is becoming a popular destination for British tourists, although many people are still put off by its high crime rate, particularly violent crime. We followed the advice we were given, avoided walking at...

Cheap, good weather, plenty to do.

Long haul flight, distance between attractions

South Africa has had a colourful history that’s for sure. Still, it remains one of the most diverse countries in the world, with 11 official languages and many religions and cultures living under one sky. Politics aside, it has a lot to offer the British tourist and the geological capital, Cape...

“Beautiful Cape Town”

The rumor says that there is a lot of crime

This review actually starts in Johannesburg but most of the time was spent in Cape Town and that is why I have chosen to categorize it under "Cape Town" I landed in Johannesburg (also know as Jo’burg) on the 31st of January 1999. The first few days were a bit amputated due to the fact that KLM...

Beautiful People, Great Food, Great Shopping

Relatively expensive for Africa

Beautiful people swirl in a kelidescope of culture in this wonderfully vibrant city. Capetown offers everything, from shopping and partying to chilling on the beach or learning about South African culture. Overlooking it all, like a wise and unchanging grandfather towers Table Mountain. A...

Incredible scenery; lots to do; great weather

Crime, safety, transport problems

I spent Christmas out in Cape Town, with family who live out there. I've been before, I would happily go back again. Cape Town is an astoundingly beautiful city, with breathtaking natural surroundings - Table Mountain, the beaches at Camps Bay and Clifton, the coast down to Cape Point. The...

“Be safe in Cape Town”

Exchange Rate

Everyone wants some money

Southern Africa is one of the most stunning places to spend a few lazy weeks (or months in my case) and with a strong pound in your pocket, you can enjoy fine food and wine for the price of a pub lunch at the Beefeater. However, Cape Town, just like any major city, has a criminal element ready to...

V.Cheap cost of living, drive on the left

Definite 'no-go areas'

Cape Town, sun, sea, wine, and a dirty great chunk of rock. Cape Town and the surrounding area must rate as a must see on any world travellers tick list. The main feature is the omnipresent Table Mountain which is as spectacular from the bottom looking up as it is from the top looking down. The...

“The African dream”

published 07/04/2004

Cheep, fantastic weather, something for everyone

safety is questionable

I recently had the pleasure to have spent three weeks touring in and around Capetown which I would like to take you through the highlights of such a vastly diverse area. We flew with South African airways which I must point out I was vastly impressed with. There planes were very spacious and...

Beautiful and relatively cheap by UK standards

Hardly any

Wow, where do I start? Well I suppose the best place would be with some geographic information. Cape Town is situated on the Southern edge of Africa and is the largest southern most city on the continent. Surrounded by the Hottentots Holland mountains on the one side and the Atlantic/Indian...

“A Day in the Cape”

published 30/06/2000

Beautiful scenery, excellent tourist facilities

safety in certain parts only

Whatever else you do in South Africa, make it a point to go to Cape Town. It is by far the best overall tourist destination that I have been to in recent times. The main attractions include the cable car ride up the mountain where you will be able to witness the most spectacular views of the city...

Spiritual and unique, laid back and affordable

Prone to rain, dodgy at times

Cape Town is unique - that is the first and foremost thing to say about it. I can guarantee you that there is no place on earth like it. I find it hard to point to exactly what it is about the place, but it must be a combination of its position between the dramatic Table Mountain and the sea, at...
