The Vine Hopper HOHO is a brilliant concept - better than driving.

A great report.

It's super convenient that you can fly directly to Cape Town from the UK, as opposed to having to connect in JNB. It's something that all the Star Alliance carriers can't really get around.

Wine Country is SA is becoming more and more of a destination in itself as each and every report has more and more great food shots!!

Not to my recollection, although I did see it one sale somewhere.

Now that exbigblue has moved on, is there anyone else staying at the Eendracht who might be able to provide updates on the chicks’ well-being?

Prehaps I should contact Management?

Feel free to use the Thread ... it’s all part of the experience. I used to watch the tram from our terrace, and it seemed compulsory to wave back to the excited tram passengers as they passed the end of the grounds

PS: 30+ is not hot. 40+ in Arizona is quite warm, though!

Great TR which brought back many memories of our trips to the Cape. It has been a few years since we visited but we enjoyed Haute Cabriere and La Petit Ferme ( Sunday Lunch) in Franschhoek.

Oh, joy, this morning (17 Jan) we have managed to snag 2 BA 2-4-1 redemption tickets for a repeat performance in Dec 18. Only 1005 in T&F for 2 in Club World ... today is a GOOD day

Will probably skip CT completely, reverse the route and find somewhere else to add.
