I'm planning my trip to SA in January-February.
My friends come just for a short period but I'd like to stay a bit longer.
That is why I thought of staying at some kite station/camp which usually allows to meet other people sharing the same interest and to find some other entertainment except for the kitesurfing.
But I cannot find something of a kind in Cape town. And there is a question of safety as well.
Could you advise please?
And where to go/what else to see in CT (or Langebaan)?
I still cannot understand how safe is the city regarding all the articles you can find on the safety questions in SA
Hey Olga - I've ben spending the winter in Blouberg most years for the last decade, so I wrote a blog post with a few tips and suggestions for anyone heading their for the first time. It might give you a little extra insight: http://www.progression.me/news/2013/01/ ... cape-town/
Also check out Cape Town Kite Club (http://www.capetownkiteclub.com) ... that is a funky kitesurfer/windsurfer lodge in Big Bay. Location is good as you can walk to the kitespot and to the bars/supermarket so you can save money on car rental.
I am going to be in Cape Town for jan/feb 2013 staying at Cape Town Kite Club.
As a BKSA coach and having previously stayed 4 seasons in Cape Town I will be offering private guiding and coaching sessions, (half days+) so if you want any tips or simply shown around the spots please get in touch.
All info will be on the website once details are locked in http://www.pastyadventures.co.uk
I am also hoping to run a couple of Wave Clinics in conjunction with the local schools/shops.
See you in the Cape
