There is plenty to see and do on your doorstep in Cape Town and if you don't do it you missing ALOT!!!!!!!!!!

Yes there are plenty of cheap tour operator's and its a good idea to go on a guided tour then you get to see more of the country and not spend time with your nose in the guide book trying to read up on what it is you supposed to be seeing.

When you get to Cape Town, ask the places where you staying for costings, get the local paper and contact places like:

The Tourists Friend
Thompson Tours
Hilton Ross

Search for them on the web and start asking around for costings.

Another option is to tour yourself by jumping on and off the Baz Bus that goes up the coast, very cost effective.

So head for the Cape, climb Table Mountain, sip good South African wine, relax watching the Penguins at Boulders Beach, walk the paths at Cape Point Nature Reserve, taste the Knysna Oysters, swing in the treetops on the Canopy Tour, visit Monkeyland (try not to feel homesick) what ever you want, South Africa has great wonders in all 9 provinces!!

Seriously Garden route is excellent, especially Jeffrey´s bay if it´s school holidays.
In CT you have the cape of good hope, the vineyard area, table mountain.
The ostrich farm, north of George.
Hermanus whales spot during the season.

Plenty of things to do after your hetic nights.......

Theres plenty to do in Cape Town and the Garden Route. Its nice for the traveling relics but also for the younger set. For those who prefer the more extreme activities, there is diving with the great white shark, both cage and out of cage experiences. Lots of mountain bike opportunities, abseiling, worlds highest commercial bungy jump (216M), hang gliding and theres the storms river gorge challenge to name a few. If you can't find something to do in that part of South Africa its because you haven't tried. You can look up some of the activities along the garden route that face adrenalin and stormsriver adventures offer, you can just google them for addresses. There are tons of tour operaters and sometimes you can get a great deal if you just walk up the day of the tour and ask if they have any openings at a discount. Most would rather get less and have a spot filled than go with an empty seat. The wine route resembles the ones in Australia and California if thats what you like. Not the way I want to spend a day though. Have a good trip.

Hi,

I am also a Dutch guy but currently doing an internship in Cape Town for half a year.

Making things easier to do is by renting or buying a car.

I bought mine at Drive South Africa www.drivesouthafrica.co.za and I can tell you: it's fantastic! I bought it with their buy-back guarantee. You buy it, use it, and when you're done...they buy it back from you.

And what Utrecht is saying about the Garden Route is in my opinion a load of crap. If you like flora and fauna (that's probably the number one reason to come to South Africa!!!) the Garden Route is the best thing to do.

I've done the trip and I loved it (not 57...24 years old). I arranged mine also with Drive South Africa www.drivesouthafrica.co.za

I hope that you pay attention to someone who HAS done the Garden Route and who is almost a local in Cape Town now.

Have fun, good luck, and get some great experiences!

im going to do the garden route...all my south african friends tell me to do it. and they tell me that it is the highlight of south africa. if i never do it then i will live in wonder. sometimes one just has to see for themselves weather its good or bad.

ever read film critics reviews on certain films were they say a film is crap and when toy go and see it ...its brilliant and wins awards etc.

still...good or bad opinions is always nice to hear.

yup when i am in bloemfontein ill be staying with the x...the only x that i am still very good friends with.

again thank you all for your feedback.

im in cape town on my own, but one of my friends in england says she is going to fly over and do things with me as she always wanted to go to sa herself.
