Festive Season has arrived. Different to other years. It is quiet. Enjoy it. Keep a distance, wear your mask, wash your hands. Have a safe and blessed Christmas.

Again, SA has opened its borders for tourists, now from wherever you live. Negative PCR test needed, that's it. Great news! While wait: It is warm, it is safe, we have space, and we behave.

To our German friends: Could just somebody ask the Minister of Foreign Affairs to remove us from the High Risk Country List there please.

Finally the temperatures are leaving the 20° mark behind. Spring is here. Endless summer is close.
(Acorn House is quiet. We are off for another Southern African trip; its just unbeatable traveling these days with no one around you.)

1 October marks the 20 year anniversary of B&B at Acorn House. We are so grateful for all the years living at the most exciting end of the world. We met many people who became friends and are returning regularly. Our old lady, built in 1904 by Herbert Baker, is still looking fresh, and our team also has its share in this success story.

Now this year there is not much to celebrate thanks to a nasty virus that has hit the world. The borders have been opened in time to our anniversary, but there are still obstacles to visit us.

However, a word from us insiders: this could become your holiday of a lifetime! There is space, everywhere you go. South Africa has big skies to go to with endless horizons. We have a compulsion to be outdoors, whether that is in exciting Cape Town, near the ocean, up a mountain or in the bush. Exploring nature in our open spaces has become the remedy after being cooped up inside for so long.

We are ready!

Great news: More and more airlines are resuming their flights to JNB and CPT from 1 October. 3 more days for the SA government to publish rules & regulations. Can't wait!

16/09/2020

Breaking: SA is opening its borders for „qualifying countries“ on 1 October. Halleluja! A negative Covid-19 test will be required. More details are to be published soon. Time to book!

On another note: it is not too long ago that we had a severe water shortage and were preparing for day zero. Happy to say the dams around Cape Town are over 95% full. Am quite certain we even pass the 100% mark!! Amazing, simply amazing.

Update on daily new Covid-19 infections as average of last week: South Africa 2.399, Western Cape 327, Cape Town 212. Well done SA! Time to open our borders.

So many people in tourism are waiting for you, Mr. President, to open up the borders for our international guests. It is safe again to travel in the Western Cape and other parts of our beautiful country. #Iamtourism #tourism

It becomes more and more difficult to stay positive these days. There is a light at the end of the Corona tunnel as the daily new infections are going down in Cape Town and in the Western Cape! However, the infections are rising dramatically in Gauteng and in PE. We'll have to remain patient. At least the weather plays along!

In another step forward to normal life SA government announced restaurants and accommodation are allowed to re-open! Yeeeah. We are establishing new hygiene rules fighting the virus. We will be ready as soon as our borders open again. We are ready for your bookings now. Cannot wait to see you all soon!

Aren't we a little envious reading about re-opened restaurants in Europe? Its only takeaways here in Cape Town. As CR points out: "It will be worse before it can become better." Patience!

South African Airways Airbus A340-600 BEAUTIFUL Landing in Cape Town!

May you not forget how it feels to touching down in Cape Town! Regrettably, it will not be on board SAA's so silent A340-600. They all have been replaced by more modern A350s. Great aircraft too! And SAA? We look forward seeing a restructured SAA taking you and us to the sky again.
