I'm going to be spending a month in South Africa this summer for business and I don't know much about it. I'll be working in Cape Town city. If traffic cape town is bad, where can I stay to avoid it? My friend went to Hermanus once, is that too far to commute? There's a mountain Cape Town, I can't remember what it's called, but I'd like to stay somewhere where I can see it, or have an ocean view, and be near good Cape Town restaurants since I don't cook. Are there parks in cape town?
What is cape town weather like? I'm not sure what to pack. Can anyone recommend good books on cape town?
