Western Cape

Western Cape

western cape mapThe “Mother City” is awarded international recognition as one of the most preferred tourist destinations. The peak tourist season is mid-December to the end of March. However, the city is a gift all year round!

Cape Town has world-class attractions that include Robben Island, Table Mountain and an eclectic mix of architecture and history. A day tour allows you to meet the critically endangered African penguin.  Shop, feast on art on music or simply kick back on one of the exquisite beaches of Clifton.

Highly recommended is a visit to the Kirstenbosch Gardens which showcase some 9000 plant species, or start your tour with a visit to one of the 45 lighthouses along the 3000kms coastline.

Just a short drive away from The Mother City you will find yourself in Franschhoek the most romantic valley on earth. Here, you are spoilt for choice as almost every wine estate offers luxury accommodation set in sweet scented lavender fields or under 350 year old oaks. Words can’t ever do justice to the Franschhoek Valley. 

There are many charming and quirky towns to explore including Paarl, Stellenbosch, Wellington and Robertson. African Stay recommends at least two nights and three days exploring this area.

The Garden Route is where ancient forests, wetlands, beaches, lakes and mountains merge to form a landscape of magical beauty. The coastal corridor along South Africa’s southern coast has so much to see and explore and it’s easily earned its title as one of the world’s most “perfect routes”.

western cape scenary bar1-african-stay

Take in the pretty coastal resort of Knysna, stay and play in Plettenberg Bay and then make your way to the ostrich capital of the Little Karoo, Oudtshoorn. As you travel Route 62 with us, stop off at working farms, take in historic mission towns or simply soak up the sun on Robberg Beach.

In just one day have an extraordinary up-close and personal experience with Elephants in Knysna. You can walk hand in trunk with these enormous and beautiful creatures.

western cape scenary bar7-african-stay

Why not consider a tour to the spookiest village in South Africa. We call it “spookville” and it is in Matjiesfontein, the quirkiest town in the country. Rich in a history of murder, mayhem and warmongering, you should not be surprised to bump into a famous ghost.

western cape scenary bar3-african-stay

If you are not too old to believe in faeries (and who is?) immerse yourself in a garden and grotto of wee-folk.  All kinds of faerie goodies are on display including faerie wings, mobiles, lights and even faerie dust. For a tiny fee you can adopt a wee faerie!

Go nowhere slowly and sleep on a steam train – permanently parked on a beach.  The view will not change, but you will not experience motion sickness either.

western cape scenary bar4-african-stay

If you have never had a tree house in the bottom of your garden, you can experience one now – with an enormous difference. Luxury and comfort, and no splinters in your feet! Sleep amongst the treetops and you may be lucky enough to spot one of the 3 last remaining elephants in the region.

western cape scenary bar6-african-stay

Get down and dirty – well not dirty, just far, far down, into an underground drain tour of Cape Town. With gumboots and headlamps, clamber down into your underground adventure. Don’t worry, there is no litter and it does not reek down there!

No bother with traffic or on which side of the road to drive, just a fascinating commentary on the history of the drains and the area above it, and flashes of brilliance – oh wait, that’s splashes of sunlight breaking through the darkness.
