Eyeing up a possible trip to Cape Town for the King of the Air 2015.

Are there cheapish places a single traveller can stay near the kite beaches or is it an expensive trip all round ? Any good kite hostels or recommendations please.
Also could you get around on public transport without needing a car. Probably looking at one week in cape town and one week up in Langabann.

There are great places to stay, very cheap for a single traveller like surf house, mystic house, kitesurfhouse etc, but book well in advance, as a lot of people come there for KOTA. In Cape Town you can do without a car, but if you want some trips like Cape Point you'd probably need one.

Getting to Langebaan with public transport is really hard, as there is like one bus a day which takes about 2 or 3 hours. In Langebaan you need a car as well to get to shark's bay, but maybe you could arrange getting there through a kite school, as most schools from Cape Town go there with their students. I know a guy who has a kiteschool and a hostel in Langebaan and starts one in Cape Town this year, so if you need contact just send me a pm.

walking distance to big bay. Once you're there it's not too expensive.

Not sure if you've seen this, but I was studying it for travel research.
