As a visitor to our fair city, you’ve probably been told if not once, then a million times, that you simply MUST visit Table Mountain, Cape Town’s wonder of nature. Sure, that’s relatively easy to do in the summer, but just what is there to do at this iconic attraction in winter? Oh, if you only knew…
The most important political event, besides the national elections taking place later this year, is coming to Cape Town - the State of the Nation Address at the National Assembly in the Parliament Buildings on Thursday 13 February, 2014.
Are you ready to have some FUN in #lovecapetown this weekend, folks?
There is just so much to see and do in our entertaining Mother City over the next few days, I don’t know where to begin! From über glam horse racing shows to amusing theatrical productions and thrilling soccer matches, there is something for everyone in our hometown.
Join me at the following events in and around Cape Town, from Friday 31 January to Sunday 2 February, 2014:
The accolades for Cape Town just keep rolling in … this time, we’re proud to announce that our caring, sustainable Mother City has been named as a finalist in the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) ‘We Love Cities’ campaign as part of the Earth Hour City Challenge!
It’s barely the third week of 2014 and already Cape Town, our beloved Mother City, is receiving awards… the best one so far? Why, being named as number one on the prestigious New York Times’ 52 Places to go in 2014 list, of course.
Think “adventure in Cape Town” and your first thoughts will probably be along the lines of shark cage diving, hiking up Table Mountain and kite surfing in Blouberg. Now there’s a new activity to add to your adventure bucket list.
Leonardo Da Vinci in Cape Town? Believe it, Mother City fans, because it’s true… the Leonardo Da Vince The Genius exhibition is running at our impressive V&A Waterfront’s Chavonnes Battery Museum until February 2,2014.
There is something about sipping a chilled glass of premium white wine on a bright, sunny day, surrounded by acres and acres of gorgeous greenery that simply screams summer in the Cape Winelands.
With our rich and tasty viticultural history and endlessly beautiful estates, it’s quite difficult to choose my favourites but here are my top three Summer Winelands spots:
Cape Town, our gorgeous Mother City is amazing to explore during the day but have you ever seen how spectacular it is from about the City Sightseeing Bus at dusk? Now, with their amazing Night Tour, you can!
In celebratory Cape Town, there are plenty of cheerful dining events to get in you into the Yuletide spirit. From heavy laden buffets at the seaside to decadent dinners in the Cape Winelands, you’ll be sure to celebrate the festive season in gourmet style.
Without a doubt, one of the most interesting, humbling and thought-provoking day excursions any visitor to Cape Town can undertake involves visiting some of the places around the city associated with Nelson Mandela, who turned 94 on July 18, 2012.
Cape Town can, with some careful planning, deliver a really enjoyable holiday experience for visitors with special access needs. Whilst we have some distance to go to being a completely Universally Accessible (UA) destination, awareness is on the rise and with it the number of improvements made to our city.
Here’s the thing I love most about my job: I get to hang out with some of the most interesting visitors to our beautiful Mother City and the coolest by far are the Vagabrothers, winners of MyDestination’s Biggest Baddest Bucket List competition, who jetted into Cape Town from Wednesday 30 October to Wednesday 6 November, 2013.
Five, four, three, two, one… it’s the weekend, baby!
That’s right, folks, 48 hours of uninterrupted fun await you in our gorgeous Mother City and that means you need to get out there and enjoy yourself. From tasty beer festivals to live music concerts and an energizing run through a township, there is plenty to see and do in our hometown.
Join me at the following events from Friday 22 to Sunday 24 November, 2013:
Let the countdown to a fabulous weekend in #lovecapetown begin!
From rubbing shoulders with the trendy and gorgeous at fashion shows along the seaside to getting a taste of the good life in the Helderberg and stepping out for charity in a mass walk, there is plenty to see and do in the Mother City.
As you make your way from Cape Town to Cape Point, you pass through the quaint harbor village of Kalk Bay, winding along through the naval-themed Simon’s Town and around the bend past Smitswinkel Bay. To your left, a jewel-coloured bay overlooked by a slope dotted with ramshackle houses takes your breath away. Just past this, on your right, lies the entrance to the SANParks Smitswinkel Bay Tented Camp.
