Achtung Bokke

Post by Mullet 2 »

Going to be in South Africa (based in Cape Town) from the 30 of Dec to the 15 of January with the missus. It's her first time in the Republic.

Any recommendations aside from the obvious? About to book an overnight Safari in Inverdoon and will do Robben island etc.

Nice restaurants etc

Dude, you really should set up your own YouTube channel.

"How Slimfast changed my life and got me regular poontang".

"From fat boy to fück boy in three easy steps".

You'd make a mint.

SA would be grand, but are many people actually travelling far for Christmas holidays?

Take a drive out to Hangklip for a lunch and some beers - the hotel should be good. Mainly locals.

We recently went to a few places that could be seen as off the beaten track, including the Cheetah Outreach in Somerset West where you can get up close to a Cheetah, and the Eagle Encounters at Spier, Stellenbosch. Really loved spending time at both places.

I always enjoy visiting Durbanville. Not quite as busy as Stellenbosch and the rest and much closer if you're in Blouberg.

Agreed.
Fantastic Sauv Blancs and it is much less touristy than Paarl & Stellenbosch.

Best thing about CT I think is the Seafood.

Some of the platters in Dublin would easily cost you 70 euro
