She organised a naturalist-guide for a walk up Table Mountain (by the shady "back side" path - highly recommended, but definitely take a guide as it's 4 hours...

It's well-located for exploring the Cape Peninsula and environs and is superbly run by Chris and Louise who are just a pleasure to get know.

We brought a group of 27 students and 4 adults from the USA and spent 10 days at Afton Grove. The facilities were beautiful, the service was wonderful and attentive, and Chris and Louise were delightful hosts. Though we were only there for 10 days, Afton Grove came to feel like home by the time we left. A great location!
