Amsterdam in Cape Town

We spent a great few days in Cape Town, mainly to visit my son who is studying at Stellenbosch University, but also to visit some of the awesome gay venues in the city. We stayed at Amsterdam Guesthouse one of the more established men-only guesthouses, nestled at the foothills of table mountain.

  Thanks Louwrens for looking after us so well at Amsterdam. The breakfasts were sumptuous and the Guesthouse is well located near the Kloof Nek road that takes you into the city, up Table Mountain or quickly to the other side of the peninsular to Camps Bay and Clifton Beaches.

Well recommended for a stay in Cape Town, and the Guesthouse also has a sauna and steam room next to the pool area so you can meet up with the other guys staying there.

Cape country here we come

It's great to get out of the city for a few days and this weekend we are off to Shisa Guest farm in the Tulbach area, about 120 mins drive north of Cape Town city.... for some men in the bush... ha ha.

Then we will be back for 2 nights at Amsterdam, the awesome men-only guesthouse we visited last year on the slopes of Table Mountain. Will load some more hot pics after the weekend so you can enjoy the view too.
