WHERE TO STAY
There's so many hotels in Cape Town, but we really enjoyed staying at Cape Cadogan, in the area around Kloof and Bree Street. It has great restaurants/bars within walking distance, but is also only a short taxi ride to the V&A Waterfront.
WHAT TO DO
We only had four nights in Cape Town, but you could easily spend a week here and then head on to Safari in South Africa.
If you're looking for activities or places to see whilst you're in the city we've got a great list for you:
WHERE TO EAT
There's so much choice in Cape Town! If you know where you want to eat book a table, especially restaurants around the V&A waterfront at peak evening times.
Life Grand Cafe at the V&A (order the goji berry smoothie and seafood platter)
Yours Truly on Kloof Street (order a pizza)
Baia in Victoria Wharf (order the prawns)
Sushi Box (we hunt out sushi everywhere)
Hussar Grill in Camps Bay (best steak ever)
Whilst you're driving back from the Cape of Good Hope stop in Scarborough and have burgers at The Hub, they're amazing!
There's so much fresh seafood on pretty much every restaurant's menu in Cape Town, make the most of it and chow down on all that shellfish!
If you do a day out in wine country, stop for coffee at Java Bistro in Stellenbosch and then have a picnic at Spier Wine Farm.
