Make your money stretch further in the Western Cape by opting for reasonably priced three-star hotels. If you don’t want to fork out for high-end hotels, you can still get great value for money on spacious rooms and apartments in the province. The Garden Route towns around Mossel Bay, George and Knysna all have diverse and plentiful accommodation – find a cosy spot in a game lodge or choose a charming guesthouse with traditional decor and ocean views.
Family-Friendly Western Cape
If you’re travelling as a family, you’ll find plenty of suitable three-star hotels in Western Cape. Find a spacious apartment or lodge with enough room for you and the kids, then explore the region’s family-friendly attractions. Cape Town has lots going on for families, not least the Two Oceans Aquarium and the Ratanga Junction theme park.
Outdoor Activities for All Ages
Outside of the city, the Western Cape coast promises further entertainment for visitors of all ages. Beach towns like Hermanus offer surfing, scuba diving and kayaking excursions, as well as lazy days on the sand. Head to the region known as Wilderness for tree-top rope courses and horse-riding trails that lead across the stunning Garden Route.
Stay near Western Cape’s Wildlife
If you’re a wildlife fan, look for a three-star hotel that puts you close to Western Cape’s animal inhabitants. Choose coastal accommodation for the chance to spot a whale, maybe even from your hotel window. Alternatively, take a boat trip to search for the majestic southern right whales that swim through these waters. Keep your eyes peeled for sharks as you go!
Inland, look for accommodation near the Knysna Elephant Park, where these peaceful animals roam freely through grassland all year round. For something smaller but no less endearing, walk along Boulders Beach in Simon’s Town to meet a colony of waddling penguins.
