Discover Cape Town, South Africa in a Campervan

Whether it is admiring lighthouses or whale watching along the western coast, sipping wine in the majestically beautiful Breedekloof Wine Valley, kayaking in Three Anchor Bay or riding an ostrich, Cape Town and its environs truly does offer something for everyone. Cape Town is the perfect mix of modern luxuries and natural beauty--if you're bored while touring this area in your motorhome rental then you're doing something wrong.

Drive west to find beautiful sandy beaches, gorgeous national parks and interesting caves to explore. If you drive the Cape Garden Route you can also walk amongst the tree canopies or surf. If awe-inducing natural beauty is what you're after you also won't want to miss Table Mountain and several of the mountain passes in the parks. Cape Town also offers several hot springs and spas to help you relax after a long day of beach combing or hiking.

If culture and gastronomy are what you're after don't fret, there is lots for you, too. On your way to your wine tasting why not stop for a spot of theatre in Darling and some delicious food in Moorreesburg? If you're a chocoholic then head straight to Tulbagh for your fix. Want some adventure in your food? If you drive the Cape Garden Route you will have the opportunity to try everything from ostrich eggs to crocodile steaks! To experience lively Cape Town culture try the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront (the area's most visited tourist attraction it boasts shopping, vitality and great food), bar hop on Long Street and enjoy a drink as the sun sets. On weekends head to Mzoli in Gugulethu where you can join in the local barbeque (braai) culture.
