Cape Town: Best Travel Tips

FIRST-CLASS WINES, beautiful beaches, powerful history–how do you take it all in when visiting one of Africa’s most vibrant and cosmopolitan cities? At the Silo, a new hotel perched atop the continent’s largest modern-art museum, concierge Hoon Kim has a plan for your Cape Town trip.

Emerging neighborhood: Woodstock used to be quite industrial, with lots of factories, but it has become an area filled with interior designers, graphic artists, artisanal breweries, and contemporary galleries like SMAC and Whatiftheworld. There’s a famous Saturday market at the Old Biscuit Mill, which started Woodstock’s renaissance a few years back. We call it the Brooklyn of Cape Town.

Best new restaurant: At the very cool Janse & Co., chef Arno Janse van Rensburg is all about local produce. The food is experimental and creative–I recently had a sensational grilled leek dish with cream cheese and almonds–but it’s not fine dining. The restaurant is very simple, with dark walls and candles on the tables. There’s a wonderful courtyard, too; sometimes I go there just for a nice glass of chilled wine.

Urban escape: Franschhoek–Afrikaans for “French corner”–is about an hour from Cape Town and is known as the culinary capital of South Africa. It’s where the Huguenots first settled around 1600 and today is home to some of the country’s best restaurants and wine estates. Everything in this quaint town has a French feel, which is really weird and wonderful in the middle of South Africa. Haute Cabri?re is a familyowned boutique wine estate here.

Beach break: Because of melting icebergs from the South Pole, the South Atlantic Ocean surrounding Cape Town is actually colder in the summer than in the winter. Most people here prefer suntanning to swimming, but surfing is definitely very popular. Camps Bay and Clifton Beach are famous surf beaches, but I like Muizenberg Beach on the southern coast for its sand and milder water temperatures.

Locals’ secret: Reverie Social Table is a proudly South African farm-to-table eatery located in the quirky Observatory neighborhood. The chef, Julia Hattingh, is young and ambitious; I’ve never seen anyone as passionate about local produce and wine. She creates the five-course menu around a rotating wine selection. It’s served at a long table that accommodates maybe 12 people max, so you have to like sitting with strangers.

Must-have souvenir: South Africa is famous for leather goods, especially ones made from ostrich. Cape Cobra Leathercraft is a boutique whose owners, the Schafer family, make everything by hand, from belts to credit card holders to fabulous handbags, using very high-quality local leather.

Things to avoid: Tours of Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned, are government regulated and not the best run. To learn about the painful memories of the apartheid era, try the District Six Museum instead.


The $ 10,000 Day

We asked Kim to plan us a special, singular day in Cape Town: The day would begin with a dramatic, scenic helicopter trip over the Cape Peninsula, affording jaw-dropping views of the waterfront, Table Mountain, and the Cape of Good Hope. Upon the guests’ return to the city, we’d whisk them off in a Maybach limousine for a tapas lunch at Chef’s Warehouse Beau Constantia in the heart of wine country. After lunch, guests would return to Cape Town for a luxurious sunset yacht excursion aboard the Only One, where, in between sips of South African bubbly and bites of gourmet canap?s, they could go for a swim before zipping out for a spin around Table Bay. And to conclude the day: a relaxing full-body massage under the stars on the rooftop of the Silo hotel.

Salvagers want to tow icebergs to solve Cape Town’s drought

There are remarkable plans to tow giant icebergs to drought-stricken South Africa to solve Cape Town’s worst water shortage in a century. Salvage expert Nick Sloane believes his team can “capture” one of the many chunks of ice which drift within 1,200 nautical miles of the country every year. Sloane, who led the re-floating of…

What’s to see in Cape Cod

ADVERTISEMENT


We’ve all heard of Cape Cod, but it’s unlikely many of us have been there, and that’s a shame. This peninsula of Massachusetts is a popular summertime spot for a lot of Americans who enjoy the quaint and relaxed nature of things. Cape Cod is a wonderful fishing destination, with gorgeous scenery, friendly people, and a welcome departure from the crazy chaos of city life.

The best thing about Cape Cod is that it has something to offer every kind of traveler out there. There’s something for beachgoers, culture obsessives, and adventurers alike, and you could easily spend a fortnight here enjoying all the different experiences available. So, what is there to do here? Well, a better question would be, “What ISN’T there to do?!” Well, we’ve picked out a few of our favorite things to do when you visit Cape Cod.

Cape Cod National Seashore

The East shore of the lower cape has been a designated national park since 1961, and it’s easy to understand why this is. The 40-mile stretch has some truly stunning scenery, as well as some of the best beaches on America’s East Coast. Beyond the sand, there are some truly stunning biking and hiking trails to enjoy here as well. So much natural beauty exists in Cape Cod, and you will really be missing out if you don’t head here and take it all in.

Heritage Museums & Gardens

We love some culture when we go away, and Cape Cod has plenty to offer those who want a cultural fix. One of the best places we would recommend checking out would be Heritage Museum & Gardens. There’s a selection of charming American folk art here, as well as a stunning antique car collection. This is the perfect place to learn more about the cultural undertones of Cape Cod and experience the 1,000 acres of beautiful gardens teeming with life and beauty.

Cape Playhouse

Ever fancy taking in a show? This is always something that’s good to try to do locally, and you can get the ideal experience at Cape Playhouse. This is actually the oldest professional summer theater in America, and the shabby-chic interior is simply unforgettable. Check out what productions they have coming up; there might be something you’re Jonesing to see. Tickets can sometimes be a little pricey, but they are well worth it, and this is a unique experience you may not be able to have again.

Art’s Dune Tours

How would you like to get off the road for a bit, and check out the stunning dunes and sprawling landscape of Provincetown? Well, these tours take people out in awesome four-wheel drive vehicles and give you a wonderful experience of the open plains of Cape Cod. You’ll also see some of the quaint shacks that have been rented by famous artists of the past. This tour gives you one of the best experiences of your time in Cape Cod and will be something of an eye-opener.

Cape Cod is primed for you to enjoy an excellent vacation destination. There is so much you can do whether you go alone, or with your family. The gorgeous beaches allow for a relaxing and laid back time, while the areas of cultural significance serve to educate, interest, and inform people as much as possible.
