A tip to all who wish to follow in my footsteps and receive HSCT in Cape Town, South Africa: book your accommodation early! Even though it was more than 2 months prior to our arrival that we started looking at accommodation, we only just finalized it, after many replies of ‘Fully booked’. Cape Town is a very popular holiday destination and December is peak season, so BOOK EARLY!
We have settled on 2 places:
The first a house close by the hospital from the 24th of October to the 28th of December. I will only be spending a couple of nights here, it will mostly be occupied by my mother and father.
The second an apartment in Simon’s Town from the 28th of December to 10th of January. It looks like the perfect place to rest and recuperate, spend time with the family plus it comes with amazing views!
