about western cape & activities Cape Town Cape Town (Afrikaans: Kaapstad; Xhosa: iKapa) is the second-most populous city in South Africa, and the largest in land area, forming part of the City of Cape Town metropolitan municipality. It is the provincial capital and primate city of the Western Cape, as well as the legislative capital of South Africa, where the National Parliament and many government offices are located. The city is famous for its harbour as well as its natural setting in the Cape floral kingdom, including such well-known landmarks as Table Mountain and Cape Point. Cape Town is also Africa's most popular tourist destination. Located on the shore of Table Bay, Cape Town was originally developed by the Dutch East India Company as a victualling (supply) station for Dutch ships sailing to Eastern Africa, India, and the Far East. Jan van Riebeeck's arrival on 6 April 1652 established the first permanent European settlement in South Africa. Cape Town quickly outgrew its original purpose as the first European outpost at the Castle of Good Hope, becoming the economic and cultural hub of the Cape Colony. Until the Witwatersrand Gold Rush and the development of Johannesburg, Cape Town was the largest city in South Africa. Today it is one of the most multicultural cities in the world, reflecting its role as a major destination for immigrants and expatriates to South Africa. As of 2007 the city had an estimated population of 3.5 million.

Addo Addo lies in a beautiful part of the world, surrounded by contrasting dense thickets of Spekboom, open grassy patches and the odd wooded kloof. The area is alive with citrus estates, roses and an amazing bird life. The town lies in the Sundays River Valley surrounded by the Zuurberg Mountains that offer some spectacular hiking and horse riding trails, and this part of the world is also a malaria free area, which adds to its attraction. The 350 elephants in the park are what people travel for from as far afield as Germany to see. Eleven elephants were saved from the brink of extinction in 1931 when the situation in the valley, rife with clashes between farmers and elephants, reached a dangerous level. Crop damage and night raids were the reasons sited for the killing of these beautiful beasts. Today The Addo Elephant Park is also home to Cape buffalo, black rhino, a range of antelope species and sightings, when you find the time to look at your feet rather than scanning the horizon, of the rare flightless dung beetle. In fact the park markets itself as South Africa’s first ‘Big Seven’ reserve. The rhino, lion, elephant, leopard and buffalo’s numbers have swelled to include the southern right whale and great white shark, since the park now extends to the sea and some offshore islands. Stellenbosch Stellenbosch is without doubt one of the prettiest little towns in the whole of South Africa. Situated at the head of the Eerste (First) River Valley, it was one of the first valleys to be settled in. The area is full of charming scenes and rich in history. The towns, villages and farmlands contain finely preserved examples of one of the most serene forms of domestic architecture found anywhere in the world - the Cape-Dutch style. Stellenbosch still pays homage to culture and heritage, as the town has done since its humble Dutch origins. Each new generation of architects, buildings and town planners used the inspiration of their predecessors to ensure that the aesthetic values of Stellenbosch remained intact. The result is that to this day, the influence of many architectural styles over the last three centuries are to be seen in the meticulously restored buildings throughout the town. Franschhoek Franschhoek is a small town in the Western Cape Province and one of the oldest towns of the Republic of South Africa. The valley was originally settled in 1688 by 176 French Huguenot refugees, many of whom were given land by the Dutch government in a valley called Olifantshoek ("Elephants' corner"), so named because of the vast herds of elephants that roamed the area. The name of the area soon changed to le Coin Français ("the French Corner"), and later to Franschhoek (Dutch for "French Corner"), with many of the settlers naming their new farms after the areas in France from which they came. This heritage is shown today by the Huguenot Monument which stands at the end of the town. The museum nearby chronicles the history of the first settlers, with each of the original Huguenot farms having its own fascinating story to tell. The Cape Dutch architecture in much of the village is unspoilt, as restrictions have been placed on the extent of renovations and new construction in order to preserve the spirit of the original settlers to the area. Hout Bay Affectionately called ‘the republic of Hout Bay’ by its residents, due mainly to the limited means of access into this attractive suburb - there are only three - Hout Bay lies just 20 minutes’ from the centre of Cape Town yet has a unique and timeless beauty that makes it so popular with locals and visitors. Hout Bay was formerly a fishing village and has managed to maintain its unique combination of fishing harbour and country atmosphere, despite development. Its long, sandy beach faces a bay framed by mountains and is quite simply exceptionally beautiful. Capetonians throng here over weekends to partake of the local fish & chips and to catch a glimpse of the resident Cape seals that make the harbour their home. ut Bay provides more than enough attractions on its own, despite its central position. Hiking and cycling in the surrounding mountains, abseiling, game fishing, the full gamut of aquatic sports, including sea kayaking, sunset champagne cruises to the V&A Waterfront, boat trips to Seal Island in a glassbottomed boat and the World of Birds mean that one can effectively remain within the republic for one’s entire trip without running out of things to do - earning one the right to own one of Hout Bay’s very own passports - a cherished memento of many a visitor. Plettenberg Bay Plettenberg Bay is a town, known as "the Jewel of the Garden Route". With plenty of sunshine, fantastic swimming beaches, numerous nature reserves and activities in the area, Plettenberg Bay (or Plett to most people), is an ideal base for exploring the Garden Route. Oudtshoorn Oudtshoorn is the ostrich capital of the world. It is also: • home to the spectacular Cango Caves, Africa's largest show cave system. • in the vicinity of an ecological hotspot where three distinct plant biomes (succulent karoo, cape thicket and fynbos) converge. • nestled next to the Swartberg mountain range, which is part of the Cape Floral World Heritage Site. Knysna Knysna is one of the most beautiful quaint little towns along the Garden Route, and nestles between the impressive Outeniqua Mountains, the Indian Ocean and flanked by forests measuring some 80,000 ha in size, which are managed to strict conservation principles. These forests are also home to the only forest elephants in South Africa. Knysna also has some unique but endangered species such as the Knysna seahorse, the Brenton Blue Butterfly, the delicate Pansy shell and the dwarf chameleon.

The museum contains a large variety of furniture, bibles, silver ware, kitchen utensils, documents, relics and artefacts which strikingly illustrate the life of the Huguenots at the Cape of Good Hope. La Motte Wine Estate: La Motte Wine Estate has been voted the South African winner of the Great Wine Capitals (GWC) Best Of Wine Tourism Awards for 2012. Contributing to La Motte's attraction as a wine tourism destination and its achievement in the GWC competition, is the comprehensive experience it offers – a heritage spanning over three centuries, architecture that successfully blends the old with the new , a restaurant with its traditional Cape Winelands Cuisine offering, a museum, housing an exquisite collection of works by South African master Jacob Hendrik Pierneef,a Hiking Route to showcase the farms Biodiversity Champion Status and of course, the elegant way in which visitors are introduced to La Motte's pride, it’s enjoyable range of wines.

Delaire Wine Lounge: The Wine Lounge is a key area of the winery where visitors experience the ultimate tasting. Refined finishes include polished plaster walls, teak herringbone parquet floors and white linen curtains. Custom designed leather furniture is combined with traditional ‘riempie’, whilst stitching techniques lend a sense of a bygone elegance inherent to these famous winelands. Cut glass lanterns hang atmospherically from beamed ceilings. Contemporary art works finish off the space magnificently. The lounge-style seating area in front of the central fireplace provides a more relaxing alternative to the refectory style seating. (8 wines available for tasting) Moyo: Moyo is the Swahili word for soul and a dining experience at Moyo is African soulful experience. An African nomadic experience is set under the African Sky in a garden in the Cape Winelands. The African village feel hums under a 300 year old oak tree with surrounding trees holding tables built in private open tree houses overlooking water features and rustic art work. Bedouin tents, gazebos and hand crafted bedlike couches allow for a variety of comfort in this 1200 seater indoor and outdoor rustic setting.

Wishy-washy ladies circulate inviting you to partake in the traditional African hand washing and face-painting ceremony. Embolas (fire barrels) add to the night ambiance and colourful African blankets allow for snuggling and contemplating the dessert buffet and cigar options. Addo Elephant National Park Morning Safari: Accompany our guide on our private luxury open-top safari vehicle to the Addo Elephant National Park where you will be treated to a picnic while observing and experiencing the behaviour of the unique Addo Elephants herds.

Addo is more than just close-up photographs of elephants; it is also about the history of Addo and the Fauna and Flora.

With many of the hardwood trees well over 100 years old and reaching heights of 30m, you get to experience the forest as it always was and from heights usually enjoyed only by monkeys and birds. (includes light lunch) Monkeyland: Monkeyland on the Garden Route is a sanctuary for many rescued primates from around the world.

Crags Elephant Sanctuary: The Plettenberg Bay elephant herd consists of five female elephants and one young male. This is a very well balanced family structure and forms part of the reason why we have such a happy and relaxed herd of elephants. The elephants are exercised and stimulated daily, which provides a firm foundation for trust and bonding between the elephants, their handlers and visiting guests. The Elephant Sanctuary hosts a unique and fully guided educational program that sets itself apart from anything else that South Africa has on offer in terms of elephant interaction and touching elephants. Visitors can learn more about elephant habits, behaviour, different personalities and anatomy through up-close and personal interaction. An experienced guide will introduce you to the elephants, and you will learn about their backgrounds, behaviour, and characters and more while being able to touch, feel, feed, interact and walk trunk-inhand with the elephants.

Long pants and closed shoes are recommended. Birds of Eden: Birds of Eden on the Garden Route is the largest free flight aviary in the world but feels more like a calming, mysterious forest with a surprise around every bend.

Cape Point: Bartholomeu Dias, the Portuguese seafarer, was the first to sail around the Cape. This was in 1488. On his return voyage, which must have been particularly stormy, Dias stopped at the south-western tip of South Africa, and named it Cabo Tormentoso, or Cape of Storms. King John of Portugal later gave it the name Cabo da Boa Esperança, or Cape of Good Hope. Another Portuguese explorer, Vasco da Gama, rounded the Cape on 22 November 1497 on his way to India. The journeys of these explorers led to the establishment of the Cape sea route. This meant more regular sailings around the tip. It also indirectly to led to a number of casualties along these unpredictable shores. Today, shipwrecks and stone crosses bear testimony to the treacherous and challenging historic sea route. Lighthouse: The lighthouse at Cape Point is the most powerful on the South African coast. It has a range of 63 kilometres, and beams out a group of three flashes of 10 million candlepower each, every 30 seconds. But, through history, mariners had taken a rather dimmer view of warning beacons around the Point. Funicular: Hop aboard the funicular and you’ll be whisked away on a scenic trip to the view site near the old Cape Point lighthouse. Over time, the means of transport to the view site changed from a diesel bus, named after the “Flying Dutchman” ghost ship, to an environmentally friendly funicular, the only one of its kind in the world. The entire funicular has been produced from South African resources. 27 different safety features ensure practical and safe operation 24 hours a day. There are two funicular cars which travel from the parking lot to the view site, just below the lighthouse. Chapmans Peak: Chapman’s Peak Drive is affectionately known as “Chappies” and is a must for anyone who is passionate about the majestic Cape Town scenery, with sheer drops to the sea below and towering mountains rising above you. The twists and curves in the road seem endless and it is a photographers dream. The drive offers stunning 180° views with many areas along the route where you can stop and take in the exquisite scenery or sit down for a relaxing picnic. Castle of Good Hope: Built between 1666 and 1679 by the Dutch East India Company (VOC) as a maritime replenishment station, the Castle of Good Hope is the oldest surviving colonial building in South Africa. From 1678 it was the centre of civilian, administrative and military life at the Cape, until the settlement grew and some functions and activities moved away from the Castle. Today the Castle is the seat of the military in the Cape, and houses the Castle Military Museum and Iziko Museums of Cape Town (William Fehr Collection). V & A Waterfront: This energetic working harbour is one of South Africa's most popular tourist attractions. Today the V&A Waterfront attracts more than 20 million visitors each year - locals and international tourists alike. With over 400 stores and 45 different Waterfront Cape Town restaurants and bars to offer, an arts and crafts centre, an internationally renowned aquarium, a children's science exploratium and a museum - it's not difficult to see why !! With over 400 stores, the V&A Waterfront caters to all shopping needs in a huge range that will suit any budget or taste. The unique blend of Victorian architecture, maritime tradition and African culture creates an environment that is lively and cosmopolitan. All stores at the V&A Waterfront are open until 9pm, seven days a week for your convenience. The Victoria Wharf Shopping Centre forms the bulk of the retail space at the Waterfront. The shopper is presented with a wide variety of national retailers, boutiques and services, along with a superb selection of restaurants, coffee shops and fast food outlets. The adjoining Red Shed Craft Workshop offers an eclectic wealth of ethnic treasures, handmade curios and art, shark's teeth and gemstones. The Alfred Mall is situated within the historic Pierhead and houses quality specialist artefacts, jewellery, curios and art with a nautical or African flavour. The most special feature of the Waterfront is probably the familiar sight of a colony of Cape fur seals resting on the seal landing in the Clock Tower precinct, or on old tyres lining the quaysides. The seals are an integral part of harbour life, and can often be seen posing on postcards. The Two Oceans Aquarium is a window on the oceans, offering glimpses of the diverse life found off the South African coastline. Over 3000 living animals, including fishes, invertebrates, mammals, reptiles and birds can be seen in this spectacular underwater nature reserve. The Aquarium offers unique opportunities such as diving with the sharks and copper hat diving, sleepovers for children, facilities

for conferences and functions and the daily feeding of the fishes at 15h30 in the I&J Predator Exhibit. Parliament: Parliament sits in Cape Town, even though the seat of government is in Pretoria. This dates back to the foundation of the Union, when there was disagreement between the four provinces as to which city would be the national capital. As a compromise, Cape Town was designated the legislative capital, Bloemfontein the judicial capital, and Pretoria the administrative capital. Kirstenbosch Gardens: Kirstenbosch enjoys a Mediterranean climate, with a long, hot, dry summer (November-March) and a short, cool, rainy winter (June-August). There are always flowers and interesting plants to be seen at Kirstenbosch and every season has its charm, however, to see the fynbos at its best and the maximum number of plants in flower, the best time to visit is towards the end of winter, in spring or in early summer (August-November). • Spring is the most colourful time of year at Kirstenbosch. It falls in the months of September and October, although spring has an early start in the Cape and many species start flowering in August. The weather, although changeable with rain still likely, is mostly warm and sunny. The Namaqualand daisies and vygies carpet large areas of the Garden, and the spring bulbs and many fynbos plants are in flower at this time of the year. • The Cape summer is characterised by long, hot, sunny days and virtually no rain. Plants from the summer rainfall areas of South Africa reach their full flowering splendour in mid to late summer. Agapanthus steal the show, in shades of blue and white, short and tall, they are everywhere. The evergreen species flower in early-to mid summer, and the deciduous species, with their unusual pendulous flowers, flower from mid-until late summer. During these hot, dry months, the cool, shady and well-watered areas of Kirstenbosch, such as the Camphor Avenue and the Dell, are most inviting. Here under the trees during February you will find the spectacular bright orange fireball lily, (Scadoxus multiflorus ssp. katharinae) and the dainty streptocarpus, also known as wild gloxinia or Cape primrose (Streptocarpus species), with their trumpet flowers in shades of violet, blue, lilac and white. • Autumn falls in the months of April and May. The weather is cool and changeable, and the first winter storms will bring welcome rain to the Cape during autumn. Blue, purple, pink and white spur flowers (Plectranthus spp.) dominate the Garden at this time of the year. There are many species and cultivars of these easy-to-grow, shade-loving, herbaceous groundcovers. The fynbos has sprung to life again, having survived the heat and drought of summer. Many species, including a wide variety of proteas are flowering. • Winter falls in the months of June, July and August, when the Cape is confronted with frequent storms and receives lots of rain. Nevertheless, Cape winters also enjoy many days of clear blue skies and sunshine. Fynbos is at its best during winter, many species are in flower and the Fynbos Walk is alive with colour and birds. You will see many proteas or sugarbushes (Protea species), pincushions (Leucospermum species), conebushes (Leucadendron species) and some of the rarer Protea Family shrubs, like the spiderheads (Serruria species). You will also see Buchus flowering, (pronounced boo-gh-oo), fynbos shrubs with strongly aromatic foliage that belong in the Citrus Family (Rutaceae). You can't miss the famous crane flower, also known as the bird of paradise, (Strelitzia reginae) which flowers throughout the winter, starting in May and ending around October. You will also see our specal yellow cultivar, 'Mandela's Gold' named after former president Nelson Mandela. A wide variety of aloes are in flower in the Mathews Rockery, as well as in the Conservatory, the Vygie Rockery, the Useful Plants Garden, and the Garden of Extinction. Robben Island: The standard tour to Robben Island is 3.5 hours long, including the two halfhour ferry rides. The Robben Island Tour includes: • A return boat trip across Table Bay • A visit to the infamous Maximum Security Prison • Interaction with an ex-political prisoner • A 45-minute bus ride with a guide providing commentary • The opportunity to explore the Murray's Bay Harbour precinct attractions, such as the Muslim shrine, or kramat, and the Museum

Oyster Festival: Join us in our annual July Oyster Festival which draws thousands of people to our shores to celebrate and devour more than 200 000 oysters in 10 days! The cultivated Knysna Oyster is unique to this area, and is famous for its fresh and nutty taste. The wild coastal oyster is also readily available at local eateries, and are more salty in taste. Knysna Waterfront: The Waterfront is a shopper’s, foodie’s, and boatlover’s paradise. It is also the departure point for the luxury sailing yacht, Springtide Charters, and for the Featherbed Company’s lagoon cruises aboard the motor vessel (mv) John Benn, and the mv Three Legs. The shops in the Waterfront sell clothing, books, gifts, curios, art, jewellery, and some interior décor materials (mostly ornaments, and soft furnishings). Two aspects of the Waterfront are of particular interest: the draw-bridge across the canal that links the residential marina with the Knysna Lagoon (and, for pedestrians, the western portion of the shopping precinct with the eastern); and the lifesize statue of Bondi - Knysna’s most famous canine friend. The counter-balanced, two-level, electricallydriven bridge is lifted whenever a sailing yacht or large motor vessel needs to pass through – and when it goes up, there’s no crossing to the other side for pedestrians (although it’s always a festive affair!). The statue of Bondi commemorates an English Bulldog who visited Knysna on three different occasions aboard the HMS Verbena, a Royal Navy sloop that was stationed at Simonstown, near Cape Town, in the 1920s and ‘30s. John Benn Cruise: The John Benn is a double-decker floating restaurant offering daily Lagoon cruises to the Knysna Heads. Sundowner cruises with fresh Knysna oysters and local beer or sparkling wine. The John Benn is a fully enclosed luxury ferry, beautifully appointed with her upper and lower decks constructed from Yellowwood sourced from the Knysna Forest. This unique vessel has carried many local and international travellers on the Lagoon over the last 25 years and offers daily cruises to the Knysna Heads. If you have not cruised on the John Benn you have not enjoyed all of Knysna. The lunch time or sunset cruise aboard the John Benn is an experience not to be missed. Share the stories of the legendary pilot of a by-gone shipping era on a relaxing and comfortable trip to the Knysna Heads.

Accommodation Stellenbosch RM: A graciously restored retreat at the leafy heart of historic Stellenbosch in the Cape Wine lands. Just 3 minutes walk to historic town centre and restaurants.

Language: There are 11 official languages spoken in South Africa and many unofficial ones. English is the official language of business, politics and media but on South Africa's streets you'll find a heady mix of languages spoken from all over the world, most notably Africa, Europe and Asia. Tipping: Who to tip: Luggage porters, taxi drivers, tour guides, language guides, coach drivers, restaurant waiters and waitresses, and car guards. o In restaurants and bars, 10% to 15% is the accepted tipping standard. o Parking attendants and security guards are common in parking lots and at roadside bays. They generally ask if they can watch your car while you are going about your business - if you agree, a tip of R2 and up should be offered, depending on the length of your stay. o In South Africa we still have the luxury of petrol attendants at gas stations to fill up our vehicle tanks, check oil, water and tyre pressure, and clean the windscreens. How much to tip for this special South African service? From R2 up. o The going rate for porters at airports is between R5 and R10 per piece of luggage. South Africa, you'll soon see, has a tradition of roadside newspaper vendors. Its custom to give the seller a few cents - rounding off the cost of your newspaper should be sufficient. o Hotel porters usually expect a tip of R10 to R20 per porter service. o Tour guides and drivers, some of the other service providers you may want to tip are taxi drivers, tour guides and assistants in hairdressers and beauty salons. Should you need assistance in taking your purchases from supermarket to your vehicle, you may want to show your gratitude to your helper with a small monetary reward.
