Your Cape Town weekend: What to do in the Mother City
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.
With 48 hours of glorious free time in the beautiful and exciting Cape Town, there is time to see and do so much, Mother City-lovers! If I had to narrow down my choices, though, I’d prefer to be out and about on the streets of my hometown, enjoying the sunshine, the culture, the people and the oh-so-delicious cuisine.
Join me at the following events and activities from Friday 8 to Sunday 10 March, 2013, and discover why the more you explore Cape Town, the more beautiful she becomes.
The largest individually timed cycling event in the world, the popular annual Cape Argus Pick n Pay Cycle Tour makes a welcome return to Africa’s sports capital this Sunday.
Spectators, if you’re not searching for places to avoid the south-easter wind that usually accompanies this beloved event, do keep an eye out for Virgin Atlantic’s enigmatic CEO, Richard Branson, and other local and international celebs participating in the race and enjoying the scenic views.
