Cape Town is no longer just a stop on your African vacation, is a must and believe me, it will be a fantastic experience, you’ll be surprised with this wonderfull city and it’s a great compliment to your Safari experience. The optimun african vacation will be: Cape Town, Singita Safari and North Island (Seychelles).
While in Cape town, you must stay 3 nights either at an island Jr Suite at the O&O, if you like a traditional modern hotel experience, or at Ellerman house if you want a different experience, think more classic romance with great ocean views and personalized service, both equally good in their own style.
On your firtst day we suggest to stay at the hotel, use the Spa to recover from the long trip and have dinner in at the world’s cheapeast Nobu (in case that you are staying at the O&O). If you are at Ellerman you can also have a great meal at the hotel ‘s restaurant . On the second day we suggest that you have a nice car delivered directly to the hotel (think a porsche cayenne or similar) and do the cape point tour on your own (leave the hotel around 11:00am) followed by a late lunch at Harbour House, then return to the hotel for dinner in the case of the O&O try Gordon Ramsay’s Maze where you will find an amazing risotto and wonderfull meat’s speacially the springbook.
On the third day you should do one of the following options: (wich will depend on what you do after cape town) Either have lunch at the beautifull Dellaire Graff winery in stellembosh, about 45 minutes from CT (yes same Graff family as the jewelery) at either of their two restaurants, one Asian style, more intimate and the other one more south african with a bigger ambience. Or have lunch at the restaurant La Colombe, rated top 10 worldwide by Pellegrino guide (for us is not top 10, but is very good) located in a small winery less than 20 minutes from CT. In either option make sure to stop by table mountain on your return and go up on the cable car to take some beautifull pictures of the city, make sure to bring your sweater as it will probably be very cold if you are in the right time of the year. For dinner we suggest the round house restaurant in Camps Bay, (very convinient if you are at Ellerman’s).
I mentioned before the two options depending on what you do after, as I will strongly recommend to spend two nights after Cape town at either Hermanus or franschoeck f. If chossing the later one, I will must likely give it a miss to Dellaire as they are similar experiences.
