Things to Do in Cape Town:
Whatever you like to get out of a holiday, Cape Town has something to keep you entertained for as long as you plan to stay. Here are a few of the more popular attractions in and around Cape Town:
- Robben Island – Take a 45 minute ferry ride across the Atlantic Ocean to Robben Island, one of the world’s most notorious political prisons. See the cell where Nelson Mandela spent nearly two decades, and learn about the Island’s colourful and tragic history.
- Table Mountain Cable Car – Just about the only thing that every visitor to Cape Town should see! Tickets are cheap, and are valid for any day up to 10 days after purchase, but book online and call in daily to check if the cable car is running, as it shuts down in heavy wind.
- Kalk Bay and the Penguins at Simons Town – Take a 45 minute trip out into the suburbs and you’ll find the picturesque town of Kalk Bay, where colorful restaurants and bars like Cape to Cuba, The Brass Bell and Polana put on a spread of delicious sea-food, pizzas and cocktails. Head a little further along the coast and you’ll find Simons Town, a quaint fishing village with a… penguin problem. You’ll find the adorable critters in Africa’s largest Jackass Penguin colony at Boulders Beach
- Boulders Beach – definitely one of the great family things to do in Cape Town
- Wine Tasting and Wineland Tours – If you enjoy your wine even a little bit, you can’t leave Cape Town without going on at least one wine tasting in the Cape Winelands. Head out on a day trip to Franschoek or Stellenbosch from the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront, or simply take a trip to Buitenverwagting Wine Estate in the Groot Constantia valley in Cape Town’s suburbs for complimentary wine tasting followed by a delicious picnic lunch on the lawn amidst the vineyards.
- Camps Bay and Clifton Beaches – Lastly, you can’t go to Cape Town in summer without spending some time on the beach. Camps Bay can be a little windy, but is otherwise beautiful. Clifton’s four small beaches are extremely popular, and normally sheltered from the wind. Beware though – the sea on that side of the coastline is colder than the North Sea in Scotland!
- Old Biscuit Mill Neighbourgoods market – Family friendly, vibey and all-out and entertaining market with a vast variety of food and clothes you are guaranteed a wonderful morning out.
- Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens – magnificent gardens that fall at the foot of Table Mountain. A glorious few hours can be spent roaming the lawns and having a picnic under the trees.
