My girlfriend and I are planning a 6 month trip to the southern part of africa. We are currently thinking about spending the time from christmas and new year in and around Cape Town in South Africa. Is this a good time to be in the city, respecting to the following points:
- Are touristic sites like Robben Island accessible at this time?
- Are Hotels and Hostels very crowded at this time?
- Is public transport working?
- Is there some life and public events going on in the city (which I assume for a town of that size)?
We think, it could be quite special and more quiet than normal, cause a lot of people living in Cape Town will be camping on garden route or national parks or going anything else. Are we thinking right?
