Are you interested in a national park or a safari? If a national park then Table Mountain + Cape of Good Hope are part of the same national park. There will still be whales on your dates of arrival. It turns out to be a trip to Hermanus. (That’s a full day). Table Mountain + penguins and the Cape of Good Hope can also fit into one day you have to see Kirstenbosch + Cape Town itself. Alternatively, go on a safari or a wine farm.

What is it about the wine farm? Where is it and how long does it take?

Oh, Cape Town is famous for its wine tasting routes)) They come in all sorts – you can do them for a few hours, or you can do them for a weekend. The most popular and famous destinations are Stellenbosch (it’s the closest to Cape Town, about 45 minutes away), Franschhoek, Wellington and Paarl.

You drink wine and enjoy the surroundings))

OOO would like to know about this vacation option (we have the first day free is 18.11). If you can, write more details (distance, travel time and how to get there in general).

If you’re staying at a hotel in Cape Town, you’ll be picked up-dropped off by a minibus from the safari. The event is for the whole day (it takes 1.5-2 hours to get to the safari). Pick you up at 7 am will bring you back at 5 pm. There will be breakfast lunches, traditional African cuisine, all very delicious. On the territory there is a swimming pool, where you can swim, around the animals are running around like mongooses, there will also be a ride on an open-top Land Rover, you can take pictures of wildlife very close. You can also replace the land rover with an ATV or on horseback. There are two safari companies in Cape Town. Personally, I like this one safari.

Whales all go to look at Hermanus. There are two options-watch the whales from the shore, it happens that they are close to swim up. The second option is to watch the whales from the boat (for extra charge, of course). Humanus is about 130 kilometers from Keptown. The trip takes about an hour and a half. To get there is simple. You drive out of the Cape and take the N2, there are signs everywhere. But it is better to use a navigator.

And you can also combine a trip to the whales with a trip to Cape Needle (geographical points of connection of two oceans-from Hermanus still 1.5 hours drive) It is also interesting to see Votafront, there is a large aquarium, stores. Wine farms are also very interesting and beautiful. Manicured gardens in the Dutch manner, old houses, nature. There is a beautiful farm, for example, where you can try traditional African cuisine from the Swedish table, there to communicate with cheetahs, if there are cubs, then touch them, hold in your hand birds of prey, like a hunting falcon. Lots of things to do. There’s a lot to see in three days.

Just text me the name of the place.

I dont know about Waterfront, three days on the Cape is not enough. the oceanarium and the mall are worse than the emirates, so it is not worth the time. imho if you want to spend a lot, then contact a local and change the currency- they are robbing the exchange offices. this is a real problem. it is still interesting to go to the garden of companies.

You should see the Cape of Needles, it’s really beautiful! The botanical garden is also very impressive, but the aquarium in Cape Town is not so good, it’s better in Durban. And of course Table Mountain, Cape of Good Hope and penguins:)

So as not to cluster topics, please suggest any excursion from Cape Town to a wine farm. We are planning to rent a car ourselves, but driving to the tasting is not an option)) Can for half a day, a day, so it does not cost a lot of money. Russian guide is not necessary, and then stumbled upon a proposal somewhere from $ 350, which is quite prohibitive, especially at the current exchange rate. I want to see the maximum for the trip, so I choose the most reasonable options on a budget) Thank you!

When my spouse and I stayed at a hotel in Kalk Bay (a suburb of Cape Town), we were immediately offered a guide with a car. (I assume other hotels would be no exception, in a pinch you can ask at the front desk yourself.) In the summer of 2013, it cost about R1,500 ( about $140-150 USD) for a day from 9am to 4pm for two people. That day we saw Simonstown with the penguins, Cape of Good Hope, Cape Point, the road past Chapmans Peak and a few other places. That same day we also stopped by Constantia Wine Valley. It is pretty much in the same area. All admission tickets (except Cape Point), including wine tasting at Constantia, were included in that $150. The next day, the same English-speaking guide (woman) took us around the wine valleys of Stellenbosch, Franschhoek. It cost about $160 for two for the day.

When I was preparing for the trip, I noticed that the wine valley Constantia can be reached even by regular sightseeing bus. Blue route. This would be the cheapest option. http://www.citysightseeing.co.za/capeTown.php http://www.citysightseeing.co.za/wine-tour http://www.citysightseeing.co.za/maps The bus makes a stop there. A full day of rides on this bus will cost 150 rand (about $13-14 USD). The tasting is inexpensive at only $3-4 for five glasses (filled to about 30-40 ml, I can’t vouch for the accuracy).

It was possible to get to Stellenbosch from Cape Town by train. Also for only a few dollars.

But we found it more comfortable when you are completely relaxed. You’re dropped off and picked up. And you do not deny yourself anything.
