Things to do In Cape Town..

The Mother City has it all — exquisite beaches, breathtaking scenery and wildlife and a buzzing nightlife. No matter what you’re looking for, you’ll find it in the “Mother City.” Here are our top picks for what to do while staying at any our properties.

Visit Victoria & Alfred Waterfront

V&A Waterfront for the win!
The V&A Waterfront, in the historic heart of Cape Town’s working harbour, is the most visited destination in South Africa, ahead of Table Mountain. This shopping and entertainment destination is a must — and great for families, too — with many free events, outdoor concerts and plenty of unique shopping. The V&A Market on the Wharf is also a must-see for foodies. And because shopping and eating can be exhausting, visit the spa in Mount Sierra.

Catch a cable car up Table Mountain…

then abseil back down. If you fancy following a rope 112 metres down Table Mountain and we’d recommend it as the world’s highest commercial abseil even if it wasn’t for the views. The quick ride will give you a bird’s eye view of the City Bowl. The summit can also be reached on foot through a multitude of beautiful albeit exhausting, trails.

Toast the Cape Winelands

It’s only an hour’s drive from Cape Town – though it’s a very scenic hour – but the famous Cape Winelands feel like a different world. There are rolling vineyards, towering mountains, historic wine estates and more than enough wine to keep even the thirstiest old soak satisfied.

Swim with Penguins

Swimming with penguins at Boulders Beach on the Cape Peninsula near Cape Town is a real thrill, especially for those traveling with children. A small public beach is set apart from the main penguin colony that resides here.
