Alternative ways to see Cape Town

As season comes into full swing, traffic to all our favourite spots around the peninsula builds up with tourists flocking to spend the summer holidays in Cape Town. Roads become grid locked, parking is impossible to find, hired cars cannot be found for love or money and tempers flare. So we have put together a list of alternative modes of transport in and around Cape Town to ensure that your holiday is as chilled as us Capetownians!
