With 30 beers on tap and over 80 in the bottle this is the best selection of craft beer in South Africa. See http://www.bananajamcafe.co.za.

James Hall Transport Museum in Johannesburg
James Hall Transport Museum in Johannesburg
The James Hall Museum of Transport is the largest and most comprehensive museum of land transport in South Africa. It was established by the Late Jimmie Hall together with the City of Johannesburg in February 1964. Took some photos here with my mobile phone (so quality not so great) but some fascinating vehicles to see here... Really friendly staff and the place has an old leather mixed with oil smell. If you don't want to drive there, you can catch the Johannesburg Sightseeing Hop On-Hop Off bus which stops there...

Photos from various visits showing places of interest here. It's a great town to visit with some unique gift items to be found, a good bookshop, a famous chocolatier, and some good restaurants and eateries,.

Spier Wine Estate Picnics
Spier Wine Estate Picnics

There is a beautiful area around the lake with green lawns, trees and benches to sit and picnic.  Close by is also a children's play area. You buy pre-order picnic baskets or buy your own food and drink at their farm stall. The wine is around R59 to R69 per bottle but we warned there is no longer the massive selection of cold meats that they used to have - that said there is a selection of cheeses (around R45 each), biltong, pates, jams, quiches, pies (from 10am ), fruit salad to choose from. Across from the farm stall is a bakery that sells delicious baked breads (around R45 a loaf).

Devil's Peak Taproom Brewery

Seems the Epping site no longer has a restaurant operating (we discovered whne visiting 23 Nov 2018) but we also visited the pub site in Woodstock. So the photos from Epping merely show what the restaurant used to look like.

Quad Biking at Rhebokskloof Estate near Paarl

We booked a one hour ride through the Adventure Shop at https://adventureshop.activitar.com. It is our second time here and obviously, we were back because we enjoyed the previous ride. The 10am slot seemed to be ideal as it was not yet hot. I took a bit more video this time which gives more of an idea off what you see and experience on the ride.

Godfathers Steakhouse

A award winning steakhouse in Centurion, South Africa that I often visit. My favourite is a 300g rump steak with their bilton blue cheese sauce
