For those that want to tour staying at different accommodations the choice is huge and the number of accommodations entirely up to you! It is however possible to stay in 1 central location and use it as your base touring out by day excursions to see the sights and enjoy the area. Depending on how active or inactive you want to be we will be pleased to guide you on where best might suite you.
My rule up to 03 nights then its best to stay in boutique hotels, guest houses or bed and breakfasts of which the choice is endless, 03 nights and upwards then it nice to have a little more space and self-catering is more appealing. However because of the locations and distances involved my recommendation is if flying into Cape Town is do a combination, tour staying in up to 2 different accommodations’ then make a base for the main part of the holiday possibly finishing up with another accommodation perhaps even a safari.
Living and or over-nighting is very simple, shopping, eating and drinking are experiences to be enjoyed! The quality of produce is extremely high and portions generous. Supermarkets are no different in the way they function to European supermarkets. Produce however if you like doing the ‘normal living’ experience is fabulous, salads, vegetables and fruit are wonderful with a huge variety and flavours far better than we are used to. You will be spoilt for choice with the different varieties of freshly baked breads as well as cheeses, dips etc.. There are full ranges of meats various different prepared styles (stuffed, skewered, diced, chops, steaks etc…) typically at a great selection already prepared and bathing in a selection of marinades ready for the braai (bbq). Fish is best bought from a fish monger always worth checking at the docks of a harbour fishing village though you will find a small selection at the supermarkets.
