Hey there,
My boyfriend and I are going to Cape Town for two weeks around Christmas and I wondered if anyone had any pointers on places to stay in Camps Bay/Plettenberg Bay and any other tips..
Any advice would be really welcome.

Plett can be quite bussy around Christmas, it is a very popular summer holiday destination. You might want to book in advanced.

Have you considered Nature's Valley and Storms River as well? If you just want to drink, and sit on the beach, then Pletts a good place as it has the nightlife, but the Tsitsikamma Forest, Nature's Valley and Storms River are incredibly beautiful and rich in wildlife and birdlife. Lots of walking, scuba diving, water sports and Plett and Kynsna are only a short drive away.

I went to south africa for christmas last year witht the folks. We flew into Port Elizabeth and drove down the garden route, stopping in Plet and somewhere i cant remeber the name of before going to Franschoek (near Stellenbosch and Paarl) in the winelands before Cape Town. Absolutely awesome trip.

You have to go to the winelands, they are spectacular and the wine is dirt cheap and tres tasty.

Plet is beautiful, with the beaches and nice little town to wander round. Not far from here, you have to stop off at a place called monkeyland. It is a monkey sanctuary where they rehabilitate mistreated and injured monkey for the wild. You can walk around with a guide and the monkeys come right up to you....awesome.

Also stop at the bloukrans bridge for the worlds highest bungee....shit scary.

Cape town is also absolutely should go to the Drum Cafe, where everyone sits around the stage with there own drum and plays along. This gets very amusing after a couple of beers.

Then, if you have the time or the money... fly to the Kruger NP for some game viewing, or perhaps swakopmund (namib desert) or Etosha NP in Namibia. They are both awesome as well...

Enjoy your travels
