Where Would You Rather Be Wednesdays: top outdoor and adventure spots 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.
If, like me, you wish you could be out in nature this Wednesday, enjoying the great outdoors and the exhilarating adventure activities sunny Cape Town has to offer, then you’re in good company, my Mother City-loving friends.
Off the top of my head, I can think of several places I’d rather be – reading a book while people-watching in the Company’s Garden; enjoying a run through Tokai forest before having a champagne breakfast at the Rhodes Memorial restaurant; or getting a bird’s-eye view of the city with Cape Town Helicopter Tours.
Here’s what a few of you had to say last Wednesday:
“St James is great!! You'll always return once you've been there! But today, the beach at Noordhoek would be my choice! Preferably on horseback. And then afterwards off to a late seafood lunch, or sunset dinner, at the Camel Rock restaurant in Scarborough!” – Knut Espen Arnesen
“Kite surfing at Table View beach AND massage at SIAM Thai Massage... But hey, that’s just my wishful thinking”. – JohnDoeSA
“Shark Cage Diving in Gansbaai with Great White Sharks with Shark Diving Unlimited.” – Renier
