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!
What a pleasant, informative introduction to the wines of the area and some of the animals. They have zebra, giraffe, wildebeest/gnus, springbok and others here.
Loved this for a tasty, quick breakfast or lunch. Nice variety, friendly service. Inside Mandela Rhodes hotel.
Penguins!! Our first exposure outside a zoo! They can entertain for a quite a while. Just make sure you take a picture of your party with the penguins visible in the background!
The furthest southwest you can go on Africa. Beautiful views. Lighthouses.
Beautiful views from ground level of this Southwest point of Africa. Seals and Cormorant birds visible and frequent. You've got to get your picture with the sign!
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.
Pleasant, roomy accommodations in CBD for a great price. Parking garage on sight. Friendly, helpful staff.
We had a business function here that was very enjoyable. From the perspective of a tourist, this would be a historical perspective that, if you have the time, it's informative.
This hotel is in a beautiful location with great, peaceful views of the bay. There is a shuttle to the V&A waterfront, about 5 mins. away.
Nice place to walk and to shop. There's always lots going on here, day or night. Unique, locally made items available too. Lots of restaurant choices. This is where the ferry to Robben Island is caught (for Mandela's prison cell tour).
What fun! Lots of unique, quality, locally made items: Some whimsical or decorative, some functional, some both.
Good Italian food at reasonable prices. Outdoor seating available.
Across from Mandela Rhodes hotel, inside the Taj, open late. Good, friendly service.
The white sand with the contrast of the colorful beach change shacks is a great sight, in a beach town atmosphere. Surfers were every where when we were here.
On the drive down to Cape of Good Hope, there's a nice pull off to view this beautiful bay. There's also a different place to access the beach.
This is the beach to be seen at... There are shops and restaurants along the waterfront to just enjoy being here. Nice beach for swimming access that's a little bit protected.
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.
Great place to wander among the local flora with a little bit of fauna thrown in.
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.
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.
About two and a half to three hours away from Cape Town. Chance to maybe see South African big Five for less than Kruger safaris.
About two hours away from Cape Town. Chance to maybe see South African big Five for less than Kruger safaris.
About one/one and a half hours away from Cape Town on Table Mountain. Chance to maybe see South African big Five for less than Kruger safaris.
Varied local fare including springbok, and ostrich, plus dutch pancakes, served by friendly staff. We were also serenaded at the patio dining.
