what to do ......

We are coming over mid Feb for two weeks and are keen to get as much out of our holiday as possible. Can anyone recommend fun things to do - day and night - possibly something along the lines of water parks or safari/zoo etc. We will also have a 3 year old and a 7 month old with us - but do have babysitters so we can have some fun too.

Are you going to stay in Cape Town? If so, what area?

There are loads of great things to do here. February is a beautiful month - hot and still. The beaches are beautiful - Clifton, Camps Bay and Llundudno are all relatively close to each other, with cafes, shops and wine bars just on the main street. The water is very cold though!

The V and A Waterfront is great fun - lots of shops, restaurants and activities (including trips to Robben Island, the Aquarium, the Red shed - a craft market, take a ride on a pirate ship, cruise the harbour etc).

The World of Birds in hout bay is a nice place to visit with small kids. They open the squirrel monkey cage twice a day and that is always a highlight. I'd advise not going to Tygerberg Zoo - it's run down and not a very pleasant experience. Aquarium and World of Birds are much better

The wine route is also lovely - head out Stellenbosch way for wine tasting and picnics (wine tasting will be unavailable on Sundays). A great family wine farm is Spier. They have a cheetah and raptor sanctuary as well as a craft market, restaurants and picnic facilities (you can order a picnic basket from them). Moyo Restaurant is a MUST! It's also at Spier. You book for the evening and there is a dinner and a show, African style.

If you like the outdoors, going up Table Mountain (either walking of via cable car) is lots of fun, and so is a walk in Kirstenbosch gardens.

Long street is a good place to visit for night life, as is Camps Bay.

Hope this helps!
