When you’re downtown Cape Town you should definitely visit this colourful and expressive living quarters. Especially on bright sunny day it’s delighting your day. From dust till dawn you shouldn’t walk it.
I was expecting hustle bustle and personality, but on a sunny Thursday afternoon it was quiet. Found some arts/crafts in the street and one African souvenir store but not much else. Oh well, I got some colorful photos and that was my main goal. Plus...More
Bo-Kaap is a delightful and neighborhood in Cape Town centre that should not be missed. Parking is difficult to find but once parked you can walk around and enjoy the colorful houses and businesses that makes this neighborhood so famous.
The Bo Kaap is lovely to see with its hills, cobbled streets and colourful homes right in the city of Cape Town and sits nestled at the foot of Lions Head.
Stroll around the colourful, historic homes and stop for a delicious local meal or...More
Boo-Kaap streets are known by their bright happy Colors, its a street where you dont want to miss visiting, has alot of history and its quiet nice to walk around. This District has more than 30+ Mosques.
Super great walking tour. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about past history and current stories. Well worth visiting this beautiful and colourful area. A photographers dream, even if you’re just a beginner. Thanks so much for the residents of his fine community for welcoming us...More

I agree, the area is pretty safe during daytime, so you can walk around on your own. But it is nice to get the full impact of the neighbourhood by joining a walking tour and get to know the history behind the coloured houses. There are a few. Google free walking tours Bo-kaap and you will find them. Enjoy!
We will be spending 4 1/2 days in Cape Town in late September. Two full days will be spent visiting the winelands and the Cape Peninsula. In the remaining 2 1/2 days, we hope to visit Table Mountain (first sunny morning!), Kirstenbosch gardens, Robben Island, District Six and Jewish museums and do a walking tour of Bo-kaap (maybe even a cooking class?). Is all of this do-able? Am I missing anything in the "must-see" category? Feeling ambivalent about the Waterfront. Sounds very touristy....More

I know we don't have enough time to see and do everything, so I am trying to structure an itinerary which hits the things that are most interesting to us. We arrive in PE at 6pm on 18 November and depart Cape Town mid morning on 25 November. We want to do an assortment of hiking, wildlife, wine, culture, history. Here is our list: Storms River Mouth and Suspension Bridge Knysna Heads Emzini Township Tour in Knysna (or other) Tenikwa Wildlife Awarenes Center or Goukamma Nature...More

We're planning to do Table Mt. in the morning, if it's open. Day 3: Hop-on/Hop-off Bus to Waterfront Area, Aquarium, Harbor Tour, Zeitz MOCAA. That night we're...More

Robben Island. Seal Rock. Kirstenbosch Gardens, if interested. I wouldn't be too stringent with planning. Robben Island and Table Mtn (and whale watching) are weather dependent. Do them on the days the weather is good and do everything else if it's not perfect. You can combine day 1 & 3 unless I'm missing something. If possible, do the Cape of Good Hope, penguins and Seal Rock on a weekday and get an early start for less traffic. Since you will have a car, you could do a scenic...More
