We are in Cape Town for just over 2 weeks from 2nd April. Our original intentions were CT and Garden Route, but R62 now looks very interesting as well. And after checking TA for some months we have a pretty good idea about what to do, but need still some help. This is what we have so far, all but the 1st 4 days are possible to change, and we have a hire car from arrival:
Day 1 -3 CT - Staying at Atlantic Affair in Seapoint. Our thoughts are to hope for good weather try and get to Table Mountain, Robben Island plus some other attractions. How busy will these places be over Easter? Then when we return to CT area and the end of our trip, use Camps or Hout Bay area to relax a little and catch the Pennisula attractions or Table Mountain etc if we missed them on arrival.
Day 4 R62 -Montagu (en-route to Plettenburg Bay). Staying at Montagu Vines
Day 5 Should we break the journey to PB stopover between Montagu & PB. But where?
Day 6 to 10 PBay as a base for beach, Garden Route, Knysna, Storm River etc. Staying at Thanda Vista
Day 11 – 12 Oudtshoorn?? – Accommodation not booked
We are not sure what to do here, stay 2 nights in Oudtshoorn or take a different route back to CT and break the journey. Any suggestions appreciated.
Day 12 – ??
Day 13 – Stellenbosch or Franschoek. We are OK with this bit, just need to find some to stay
Day 14 – 15 CT. Last 3 days in CT to do what we missed on arrival. Stay i Camps Bay if we can, but Hout Bay as an alternative.
Day 16 – CT and evening flight back to the UK
Thanks in advance, when we get back I promise to do a trip report
