All good tips above. Add in the Chapman's Peak road drive. Stellenbosch is easily accessible by car or train and is a great day out/overnight trip. Go to the V&A waterfront for bars, markets & great atmosphere almost 7 years ago
I am looking for an affordable volunteering/travelling options/ideas for 2 weeks while I am in Cape Town, South Africa.
Check out helpx.net for exchange programmes. There is usually minimal cost involved & it gets you off the tourist trail. If you are looking to travel, check out Baz Bus which is a hop on-hop off bus that goes from hostel to hostel. It's a great & safe way to see lots if places & meet some great people. You can check out my blog on this site if you'd like more info (I did Pretoria to Cape Town earlier this year). Butterfly-freed over 6 years ago
Milford Sound (although the tunnel closed yesterday for 2 weeks so only ingress is by air and hostel closed during this time too), Drive Te Anau to Queenstown, Lake Tekapo and the hot spring baths there. If you have a car, there are many beautiful drives and the DOC (Dept of Conservation) signposts places of interest along the way. Mt Cook is great but I hear even better by helicopter. On the East Coast the Otago Peninsular drive. Queenstown good for activites almost 7 years ago
