Cape Town for Beginners

91%
Found this guide helpful

Cape Town is a beautiful city nestled between mountains and bays. No matter what type of traveler you are, you'll find lots of points of interest here: There is something for everyone. It's easy to get around, either by rental car or hiring a driver. We traveled this trip with teen daughters and also made drops of donated supplies to some of the shanty town kids. What a great, unforgettable experience! Make sure you fit some type of safari(-like) experience in too.

OklahomaMomOf3's City Tips

  • Enjoy a glass of sparkling wine from the region (Stellenbosch)...they're excellent!
  • Bring a bottle of water on your day out, as you won't always find a drinking fountain. Water here is very clean, and safe for drinking.
  • Don't leave anything visible in your car. Chances of a break in increase significantly.
  • The Hop On/Hop Off bus is a great way to see a lot of the town and Table Mtn.
  • Have good walking shoes and bring a rain coat...weather can change quickly. Even if you don't use the coat for rain, you might want the warmth.
  • General tipping applies here. We did NOT find that tips were already added in restaurant bills.
  • Go into a Shanty Town (ST), either thru a charitable organization that you prearrange or thru a local daytrip excursions that goes in. It is an eye-opening experience.
  • Rent a car and drive yourself, as it's rather rewarding and very affordable. Parking isn't a problem.
  • You can help ST locals by giving them business (check w/your guide), or by appropriate donations. See Pack for a Purpose or Catholic Welfare & Development sites for ideas.
  • Most lots/parking spaces have a "guard" watching them. They typically have a yellow safety vest on and they may assist with parallel parking. Tips are appreciated, if not expected.

    Both the food and the service were excellent here. Absolutely the best calamari we've ever had (it was grilled!), and steak the way it's supposed to taste! Expansive menu, yet it was all good! We enjoyed it so much, we ate here twice!

    This is our main "You Gotta Go". Everyone needs to go to the top of Table Mountain and see the views. This is a National Park area for a reason: great scenery, local flora and fauna. Never know what you'll see, but even the clouds pouring over the mountain are cool! We recommend climbing a trail if you are inclined. The ones near the Arial Tram are quite strenuous, but very rewarding. Trails at the top near the Arial Tram are fairly easy, but uneven.

    If you do the strenuous hike up, which we recommend, take the cableway down and save your knees. It makes a full rotation (on the way up or down), so everyone in the tram sees the same thing. If you don't like hiking, this is an excellent way to get to the top for a 360° view.

    This goes along with the V&A Waterfront description. Lots of specialty and locally made items here, some thrifty, some luxury.

    Street market with lots of locals selling their wares, some handmade, some machine... Many are locally made, but some stuff is "made in china". They will haggle here, but keep in mind these people are trying to make a living too. They close up about 5pm.

    • Mandela Rhodes Hotel, along this strip, has nice shops with good quality items at decent prices to compare with the street market. Check them both!

    About two/two and a half hours away from Cape Town. Chance to see South African big Five in less time or money than Kruger safaris. This is the one we did. I would recommend you look at the reviews of all of them and choose which you think will work best for your situation. If you have the time and money, skip these day trip reserves and do one of the Kruger park safaris. They seem to be a minimum of 3 days/2 nights and you need to fly up or add extra days for driving or a train up to that area.

    Tips
    • Don't expect this to be a true safari experience, but you might get to see the big five. This is probably true with all of them I have listed.
    • If it's possible, ask for the best, most informative guide/driver they have.
