View Full Version : South Africa, Cape Town and Winelands - NOT ON A BIIKE

OK folks, I'm after some recommendations.

After a shit year last year (very short story), I've bitten the bullet and booked a holiday to SA at end of March / Start of April.

I've got the guide books, and for a change I'm actually reading them. But I thought I'd ask the masses about their experiences - good and bad!

I have 4 days in Cape Town, 2 days in Fanscheouk, and then travelling to Wilderness and Shamwari. Other than accommodation and hire car, the only thing booked is a 3 day safari.

So is there anything that falls into the categories of

'must see',
'unexpectedly good'
'disappointing' or
'must avoid'

for example there are lots of wine tasting opportunities, but are any ones specifically recommended from your own experience. I'm happy to experience culture, food, wine, beer, scenery and other . experiences (nope not that type - I'd go to Bangkok of that :rob)
