We were there for the birds with an added bonus - the fynbos! While having my morning coffee absorbing my surroundings, a pretty little veld mouse watching me put a smile on my face for the rest of the day!

We stayed at Erica, which has a very nice view to the mountains with starting point of the Kogelberg trail. Yes, there were flies, but these come with the surrounding, not because of the compost toilets. Tip: use insect spray 15 minutes before sleeping and...More

This reserve close to Betty's Bay (not Franschoek) is a must-see. We walked the Palmiet river trail with our three kids (8, 6 and 3) and loved it. The trail is beautiful with fynbos that will take your breath away. If you walk on the...More
