Fazielah’s top three kiddie-friendly things to do in Cape Town
Fazielah Williams has lived in and loved her Mother City since birth. Having lived all over the Peninsula during her childhood, she now calls the picturesque City Bowl home and likes nothing more than watching the sun set over Table Bay from the window of her apartment.
A lover of the arts and proud Cape Town fanatic, Fazielah began her writing career by spending many hours as a child conjuring fantastical stories that featured independent heroines from faraway lands who saved the Prince instead. This Capetonian princess has enjoyed stints as a magical arts PRO and TV publicist before finding her calling as a travel writer.
When not waxing lyrical about the Fairest Cape’s most loved attractions and activities and embarking on unexpected adventures, Fazielah can usually be found taking in a show at one of the City’s fabulous theatres.
My first thought whenever I’m asked to babysit my godchildren is, “What will I do with them?”
Luckily for me and exasperated parents, too, there are plenty of activities in Cape Town to keep the little ones entertained and stimulated.
Join me at the following events and activities and discover why the Mother City really is a kiddies’ paradise:
Face painters, clowns, brightly coloured kites and more await young Capetonians and their folks at the 18th annual Cape Town International Kite Festival in Muizenberg.
With kite-making workshops, non-stop kite-flying, craft and food stalls, as well as kids’ rides and a full programme of entertainment on the Coke Gig Rig, you’re guaranteed to have fantastic outdoor family fun.
