Camps Bay, by far the most elegant and trendy suburb of Cape Town, is your best choice for accommodation if you wish to have excellent shopping, dining and drinking right outside the front door of your holiday rental apartment.

The beach here is by far one of the best in the whole country, and the nightlife is reason enough to attract locals from every corner of the city. But let’s not forget that you are in Africa!

While holidaying in camps Bay, don’t forget to plan at least two days’ worth of exploration. From here, you are but a hop away from some of the most formidable sites in Africa, so pack a bay bag, book a guided tour and discover the real beauties of Cape Town.

The African must-do: Game Driving

 Animals, animals, everywhere you lookanimals! Only this time, they’re not hiding behind zoo cages, but they’re roaming free in one of the best preserved private game parks in South Africa.

The Aquila game Reserve is only 1.5hr out of town, and is home to lions, zebras, giraffes, leopards, hippos and a vast array of other endemic species.

Spending a day animal spotting on the back of an open-top 4WD is the epitome African experience, and one which should never be missed.

The tour lasts all day, and includes pick up, drop off, park entry fees, a delicious champagne breakfast and a hearty lunch.

If you’ve ever dreamt of spotting the Big Five on an African safari, then best you don’t miss this golden opportunity.

Cape Town’s Pride Joy: Table Mountain

Cape Town’s most beloved tourist attraction is an absolute delight; the panoramic view gifted by standing at the very top of the highest peak is simply breathtaking.

While you could always organise a taxi to go there on your own, we do love this particular organised tour because the guide is able to juggle the itinerary depending on the weather.

With such fluctuating cloud movements, one risks spending hours at the cable car station below, before being allowed to ride up, if at all.

Put your trust in a local guide, who’s in constant contact with the cable car station, and he’ll do his utmost to plan your Table Mountain and city tour accordingly.

At just £30 including transport and a knowledgeable guide, we think this tour is worth its weight in gold.

For another unforgettable South African experience, book a full-day tour to the cape Peninsula, and take in one of the world’s most striking coastlines.

The most south-western point of the African continent is beautiful beyond imagination and the clash of Atlantic and Indian waters make for some quite dramatic scenery.

On a full day tour you’ll have the chance to admire the coast, explore the Cape of Good Hope Natural Reserve as well as book a separate boat trip to pay a visit to the curious Cape Fur Seals and the absolutely adorable Jackass Penguins.

Not to be confused with the obnoxiously behaved penguins, Jackasses are native to the Cape Peninsula and are the only ones of their kind in Africa. Penguins that is!

Plan a brilliant stay in Camps Bay next time you visit Cape Town and you’ll not only have the best of the city at your doorstep, but the very best Africa has to offer.
