I grew up in Cape Town and have travelled extensively there since leaving many years ago. I still love it, especially those beautiful valleys and villages that tourists often don’t visit.
What my partner and I really enjoy is hiring a car and driving – the roads are good, the people are friendly, the culture is fascinating and there are many hidden and exquisite places. And for overseas visitors, the exchange rate makes travelling cheap.
Here’s my story on five charming places to stay outside the cities, which was published in Fairfax Media’s The Sydney Morning Herald and Melbourne Age Traveller on July 14, 2016. I’ve also included the online link which you will find on Traveller.com.au below.
