Nature meets sports – Flickr pic of the day
With a passion for travel, tourism and social media, Cape Town is the quintessential backdrop for Media Developer Leon Jamarie and his cape adventures.
With the City as his canvass Leon paints the town red covering a range of events and activities in the peninsular while staying true to the traditional culture the mother city offers it’s children,
Originally from Durban, Leon is still an accidental tourist in the city he now calls home and as such is on the line between resident and local tourist able to provide inside knowledge and flavour to the average mundane travel blog.
He is always on the look out for that hidden gem or typical CT party. If it’s fun, relevant, he will cover it.
The City of Cape Town has designed a special tour of Cape Town Stadium where visitors are guided through the hallways of the stadium to the players’ change rooms, the on-site police cells and the VIP hospitality areas. Sport-lovers will also get the chance to “run onto the field” as they are given the opportunity to see the world-class pitch up close.
Visitors to Cape Town Stadium can also explore the Biodiversity Showcase Garden in the adjacent Green Point Park. It features over 300 plant species from the greater Cape Town region, as well as themed areas and displays including “Gardening for Biodiversity”, “Everything is Connected”, a Khoikhoi food garden, medicinal plants and a display of veld types.
Tours start daily from Tuesday to Saturday at 10h00, 12h00 and 14h00.
