Your Cape Town Weekend: top three getaway spots
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.
So, the six-week wait since last payday is finally over and you simply have to spend it on something, right? Why not treat yourself to a weekend mini-getaway?
Sunshine, sea and relaxation is the order of the day, Mother City-lovers, so join me at the following top three getaway spots from Friday 25 to Sunday 27 January, and discover why You Don’t Need A Holiday, You Need Cape Town:
Roughing it in style at Slangkop Tented Camp
Fall asleep beneath the stars, with waves gently breaking on the shore at the Slangkop Tented Camp in Kommetjie.
Ideal for an impromptu breakaway, this slice of rustic heaven boasts an unbeatable view of the Slangkop lighthouse, a well-supplied boma and a huge braai area.
