The accommodation's in the link below go to Asara Wine Estate and Hotel, Kleine Azalze Hotel, Lanzerac Hotel & Spa, Majeka House and Protea Hotel Dorpshuis & Spa - all of these are really top notch luxury accommodations.

    What is the best beach in south africa

    I would have to say Camps Bay Beach (socialite central), Llandudno Beach (blue-blue freezing cold water), Fish Hoek Beach (warm water), or if you're into the whole nudist vibe, Sandy Bay Beach. Remember the sunblock! Especially for Sandy Bay :-P over 7 years ago

    Any comments on taking the train to Simonstown, from Cape Town?

    It is a safe train ride from Cape Town to Simon's Town, but as Dean Clark recommended, get a Metro Plus ticket, also known as 'First Class'. Try and avoid travelling on the train after dark. The trains are busy in the mornings and in the late afternoons (4pm) with all the commuters using the train for travelling to and from work, I would recommend travelling round about the same time for added safety and piece of mind. over 7 years ago

    I'm planning a solo vacation to South Africa in Oct. Looking for a group tour package with a reputable company. Any thoughts?

    Hi Janeegib! Have you thought about doing an overland trip to explore South Africa? They are a really cheap way to travel and give you a taste off all the best attractions in the country. I wrote a blog about the 5 best South Africa tours here:http://www.overlandingafrica.com/blog/tours/top-5-best-south-africa-tours Alternatively you could hop on the BazBus for a bit of South African exploring. Hope it helps. over 7 years ago

    A good sushi restaurant in cape town

    Hi Athos Beluga and Sevruga are sister companies, so you can expect the same menu and quality from both restaurants. Beluga is in Green Point, but Sevruga is based at the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront with a lovely view of the harbour. Active sushi is great if you're looking for value for money with their 'all you can eat' special. Unfortunately there is loads and loads of rice in each piece of sushi and very little fish used. Also, because the restaurant needs to produce such high volumes of custom sushi for it's customers the waiting time is quite long for your food and the quality and presentation is lacking. If you want great quality Just Sushi in Simon's Town, Cape Town is AMAZING! The restaurant is by the Just Nuisance statue by Jubilee Square. The sushi is of great quality. It is a family run restaurant - Cathy and her hubby's friendly faces are around most days taking orders and adding to the homely feel of the restaurant. Enjoy your sushi hunt! over 7 years ago
