Though the beach is still popular, the elegant splendor that once graced this seaside resort community barely shows through the paved-over streets, fast-food eateries and shopping centers.

The water is freezing, however you can catch a wicked tan and some surf, there is also a water slide and put put close by, with loads of ice-cream shops all around. Good for families.

This iconic site is just off the highway. Take a few minutes to walk over. This is the most beautiful beach. Taking the Boyle drive you can look down on the beach and the beautiful wave pattern.

The other bus company Golden Arrow might go that way. There is always the train but only if you’re adventurous as it is apparently dangerous.

For a start, I would say that you are trying to cover far too much in that amount of time, particularly if your plan was to drive from Vic Falls back to Cape Town. It really isn't possible. My husband and I did a similar route many years ago (with the addition of the Okavango Delta, Wild Coast and Garden Route) but we took eight weeks to do it. I would recommend going back and looking at the distances involved, then focusing on a smaller piece of this itinerary. Driving in Namibia is...More

Hi I would suggest move table mountain to Day 1. On Day 2 take blue route of bus tour. On day 5 you can also change it to wine lands. Visit Stellenbosch and surrounds. You can visit Camp's Bay on day 1 or 2.
