We arrive in Cape Town in Oct 13, 2011 for 8 days. Aside from the usual CT highlights, what's the best use of our time? We are interested in wine-tasting, hiking, and generally seeing the extended area - Garden Route, whales, etc. Will have a car and am thinking 3 nights in CT and some combo of nights on the road. All advice most welcome, including accommodation suggestions. We would like to keep nightly costs around $150 US$ on average but can go higher if necessary.
Thanks for all advice!
