Cape Town is the oldest city in the country, with many tales of brave pioneers and its fair share of broken hearts and tragedies. It’s only natural that our Mother City should have a few ghost stories. Here are some spooky spots….
I’m not a Capetonian by birth, but by breed. I’ve lived in this beautiful city since October 2010 and am still in awe of her beauty every day. Cape Town always quietens during the winter months, which means that there are some fantastic winter specials running everywhere from hotels to restaurants, spas and salons. I like to take full advantage of these in the colder months. I’ve compiled a list of some of my favourite things to do in Cape Town in winter.
If there is one thing Capetonians are good at, other than socialising of course, it’s braaing. Whether it’s meat or fish, you can be sure that on a spectacular summer’s day (winter too!), you will find us gathered around the fire, enjoying each other’s company, the tantalising aroma of meat on the grill and our breathtaking city views.

Mother City lovers, today is December 12, 2012…12/12/12, the last time our generation will ever experience a sequential date this century (the next one will be January 1, 2101!) Big deal, I hear you say… but in the spirit of keeping things fun (and in Cape Town, when are they not?), I‘ve put together a list of 12 amazing things to do in the Fairest Cape today:
The spring southeaster is Cape Town’s harbinger of happiness, for it signifies that summer is finally here. From a diving perspective, it is fulfils another useful function: the wind is directly offshore and blows the dirty surface layer away. This is replaced by the ice-cold, crystal-clear water from the deep in a process known as “upwelling”. This nutrient-rich water is welcomed by the bait fish shoals, which are pursued by dolphins, snoek and game fish such as yellowtail. Following several days of a pumping southeaster, the water on Cape Town’s Atlantic Seaboard on Saturday, October 31 was about as good as it gets – 20m underwater visibility and a chilly 10°C.

Taking time out for yourself in Cape Town can take many forms. You can take a walk on the beach, enjoy a spa treatment, tuck into gourmet food and wine or sip on a perfect brew with a few sweet treats to delight you at high tea. Often the perfect way to catch up with friends or loved ones, high tea not only offers an afternoon of exciting new teas and treats that delight the eyes and palate, you can also enjoy all of this while admiring the splendour of your surroundings. I sampled a few high teas on offer around the city and found a few gems.
Cape Town is not only a great value-for-money destination, it also offers good value for time. You can see and do so much in a relatively short time, if that’s all you have. Here are some things to do if you have as little as 48 hours in Cape Town.
