There´s some distance between things in this country and no one walks around after dark. There´s almost no public traffic, that works anyway, and the MyCiti busses is the safest but only daytime. You will need a car but then you cant drink so the best alternative is to go by taxi preferably UBER app that is one of the safest. We will have a phone with a South African prepaid sim card that you can use in the city to avoid the high costs of data and calling. Going by taxi is cheap and even cheaper if you use UberX in the app. Use the link above to register and get a free ride of 200 rand.
This is just a scratch on the surface of what the Western Cape has to offer. Updates to come.
There is the usual big companies here but if you book online on http://www.autoeurope.se/ the price will be better than going directly to for example Hertz or Avis.
There’s a shortage of electricity in South Africa and sometimes there’s scheduled power outs. Most restaurants have its own backup generator but during load shedding there can be hard to get a table.
The weather is changing quite fast here and it not reliable. I can be sun and clear sky’s in Cape Town and rain 1 hour away. The weather is changing all the time due to the two oceans and mountains and you´ll never know what the afternoon is going to bring so always keep an extra jacket.
