special birthday

I am travelling in the western cape with my partner who will be 50 during the trip. I want to make the trip truly memorable. We wil be staying at the Birkenhead House Hermanus on his actual birthday and am looking for ideas for Cape Town Garden Route and Winelands areas

I would suggest that the Marine Hotel in Hermanus pack you a picnic for the beach. They do exquisite picnics. You could also take a helicopter flip and possibly see some whales. The website for the Marine Hotel


Have fun.

A very unusual restaurant in Hermanus is "Bientang's Cave" As the name suggests, it is located in a cave and is right on the waters edge, great for whale watching. The restaurant has a web site and I would advise you to access that as they are not open every day. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.
