Muizenberg is a small city in the southeast of Cape Town and about half an hour away with the car. Muizenberg has, for south Africa typically, white sand beach, where most of the families and surfers are going at the weekend, and because of that the beach can be crowded at Saturdays and Sundays. The spot is very attractive for surfers, because if there are good conditions you can ride some nice waves. It’s mostly a spot for beginners because the waves are not so big, the bottom is sandy and you are able to stand in the water for like 50 meters. On the promenade are located many surf shops where you can, if you don’t have your own, rent a surfboard for like R70 for the whole day.
Table Mountain is the most famous emblem of Cape Town, and that with a good reason. It exists no other city in the world that got a breath-taking mountain in the neck like the Table Mountain, which lies directly on the sea. The best view on the mountain you got definitely from “Table View”, which is located about 15 km in the north of Cape Town and easy to reach with the car or by bus.

If you like relaxing on the beach and listening to the waves, having a drink or a snack in between, then you’re totally at the right place in Camps Bay! Here you can relieve pressure at the white, sandy beach on a beautiful palm lined promenade. Just sit down and enjoy the great sea air. You can of course also jump into the water but you have to be very brave for that, because it’s freezing! Who definitely wants to go into the water should not necessarily come here to the Atlantic Coast, but rather to the Indian Ocean towards Muizenberg. The water is much warmer over there!

This is the southernmost tip of Africa. It’s the official meeting place of the Atlantic ocean and Indian Oceans. The place of rugged beauty and natural heritage. Many national monuments are found in the area, mainly the Cape Agulhas Light House which has been in operation since 1849.
Winter days in Cape Town are not as bad as their reputations: No queues at the cable car, sunshine and mild temperatures, no wind blowing like the South Easter and no traffic. That means you can enjoy driving along the streets of the Western Cape even more.
Winter in Cape Town does not mean that there is nothing to do. It might be you have to do without long sunny beach days (although you might still find those beautiful calm afternoons in between) – but the Mother City does definitely not sleep.

Only a few more days to some special conferences and festivities happening in the Mother City.

I found my favorite place at the Cape of Good Hope by absolute accident. Of course you can only visit a place like this, when you hire a car from Aroundaboutcars. I am not saying this because I am the owner of Aroundaboutcars and we offer the best rates and cars in the country but because of the fact that there is no public transport for travelling to the Cape. An organized tour costs twice as much as a hire car for one day and a tour would never drive to my favorite place.
This is for the whole family! The Cape Fold Belt Mountains rise behind the village towards the sky, the Botrivier and Kleinrivier lagoons run majestically alongside the city and cliffs that are shrouded in fog fall down to the shimmering Atlantic. The coast of Hermanus seems like a susurration of nature.
Driving through the quaint and picturesque town of Simon’s Town, we had to stop at The Sweetest Thing coffee and patisserie shop for the most mind blowing cakes/tarts and coffee. Satisfying our sugar rush we headed to the Grosvenor House perched high above the working naval harbor. Settling quickly into our gorgeous room with sweeping views over False Bay, we eagerly changed and headed out to a hiking trail close by, one of hundreds laid out by Sanparks throughout the Western Cape, lying above the penguin paradise at Boulders beach.
Longstreet is well known to be the more energetic street of Cape Town. If you don’t visit Longstreet, you don’t visit the mother city. It’s filled with many shops, a lot of restaurants, many pubs, cafe, bookshops and so on. The vibe is always nice in Long Street. During the day, you can do shopping at the African stores to bring souvenirs from South Africa. You can also take a seat in of the many restaurants for lunch time. You have the choice between different types. The nightlife is also crazy in Longstreet. The vibe is fantastic during the weekends.
I’m not used to waking up early morning. But this time it was worth it. I woke up at 5am to do one of the best farm game drives at Fairy Glen. So I went with the student from Good Hope Study. We took the bus at 5.45am. The direction from the city to Fairy Glen was really nice. I arrived at 9am.
Hey young travelers! As a young traveler in Cape Town, let me give you some pieces of advice to spend your money reasonably.
Hi everyone, as a sport accustomed, my friends and I tried the hike to Devil’s Peak. So we were 4 to go there. We started at 11am. The footpath was quite nice at the beginning but after 5 minutes of walking we felt the difficulty to hike until the top.

This game may be one of the most important for both teams and a prestigious one. Until now they played good games on the pitch. Both are strong, smart, and fast
Yours Truly is typical of Kloof Street, a road famed for its trendy bars and eating-places. The young hipster crowds look good, and they know it. The same can be said for the bars, which combine stylish décor and gourmet food with relatively high prices and small portions. Having said that no one’s making you drink the tasty craft beers for 38 rand each or eat the delicious little pizzas for 70. Just order Carling Black Label and don’t eat anything; you’ll be drunk soon enough!
CAPE TOWN BREW – BEER TASTING TOUR Beer is the oldest alcoholic drink known to man. We know from archaeological evidence and even ancient recipes that we were enjoying beer as far back as 5000 BC in Mesopotamia, today’s Iraq. Some historians even think that the mysterious “manna” that God provided for the Israelites during their travels in the desert, was, in fact, something to do with beer.
I consider myself something of a breakfast enthusiast; growing up in England it’s hard not to be. I was relieved to discover that the South Africans take it just as seriously, although they incorporate an element of choice that the English lack!
There aren’t many cities in the world where you can drive a quarter of an hour out of town and be lost in dense woodland, your ears filled with the rushing of streams and birdsong. What’s more there aren’t many places where you could do that for free. Cape Town, of course, is one of those places.
From modest beginnings in 1939 as a tea room attached to the train station, through many years of modest success as a restaurant and bar, The Brass Bell has emerged today as a true leviathan of eating and drinking in picturesque Kalk Bay, a half hour drive south of Cape Town. The restaurant boasts no less than seven distinct areas to eat or drink, and four kitchens to serve the maximum capacity of nearly a thousand guests.

My Danish friend, Sanne, slept over and our morning started at 06:30. We enjoyed a simple breakfast of bananas and yoghurt before cycling to the city from Tamboerskloof, where nearly 35 000 people gathered for the Cape Argus. It was incredibly well organised – all the cyclists were directed into different loading bays – I imagine that that is what gigantic herds of cows feel like at the instruction of their shepherds… There were public bathrooms everywhere and even a coffee trailer – despite there being so many people present, the queues were not too bad.
This is the perfect time of the year to host a product launch, networking with clients, team building, entertaining your clients, birthday party, anniversary, baby shower or any excuse to have a winter party.
While all the talk around Cape Town this week is rightly about the Cape Argus Cycle Tour, there is one thing you may forget if you’re making the trip from outside the city to pedal your way to glory. How are you going to get to the starting line? If you’re flying in, you may want to take advantage of Around About Car’s reliable and affordable car hire from Cape Town International. This will give you the chance to experience more than just the burn of those lactic acids as you can fill in those hours before and after the race with all the site-seeing the Mother City has to offer.
Last weekend I visited Le Bonheur Crocodile farm like a real “Crocodile Dundee”.
