ScapeNotes is the Do-It-Yourself website where anybody can post notes about tourist facilities in the Western Cape province. The main focus is on tourists making notes about facilities in towns. "Did that guesthouse say that they offered meals?" Make a note for yourself or for subsequent visitors.

However, we would also like the owners of facilities to participate with some free self-promotion, answering of frequent questions and news about new developments. In fact, we would appreciate it if the facility owners took the first step to list their facility and introduce themselves to visitors. Any person who is interested in promoting their town can start listing and introducing the facilities that would be of interest to visitors.

Have a look at this section to find out more about the workings of ScapeNotes.

The Cape province has such a diversity of culture and attractions to offer. We hope that you enjoy your stay!

  Misc. Clubs and Societies that welcome visitors


For any of the towns above, you can add your own Facility and ScapeNotes in this discussion forum (bulletin board) regarding for example, backpacker's hostels, hotel accommodation, B&B's, restaurants, 4x4 routes, art and craft shops, galleries, Bed and Breakfast accommodation, etc. What will attract tourists to the town? What do you want to ask about something in a town above? Mention anything that is tourist-related - hiking trails, unusual accommodation, festivals, museums and scenic attractions - question or discuss anything that can hold a visitor's attention for more than 10 minutes!

The list carries on: birding, rock formations, mountain passes, drives, river cruises, wine cellars, wine tasting and sales, fishing spots, beaches, car hire, bus tours, etc., etc. - the tourism possibilities are endless . . . . .

Anybody can add a facility to a town listed above - guests, owners, managers, potential visitors, aspirant travel writers, amateur or armchair critics - absolutely anybody. You do not have to be the owner of the facility - you can be a less than satisfied visitor honestly telling of your unhappy experience at a facility. Hopefully a subsequent visitor comes along and tells us that all is well now. (We may edit or delete your note if think that it is out of line, but don't let that stop you from trying!)

Golf clubs, watersports, caravan parks and camping accommodation, cinemas, pleasure resorts, quad bikes, bazaars, theatres, self-catering huts, surprise us!
