What’s fast becoming known as the hippest street in Cape Town, Bree Street is where you will find a hive of artisan activity. And if you’re a food lover, there’s plenty to sample here too, from burgers to gourmet pizza, craft beer and cupcakes. As one of the main arteries of the city, this street is building a reputation as the retail, culinary and design centre of the city. Here is a list of just a few of the gems.
Cape Town is the ideal destination for kids: there’s plenty to do, whether you decide to play ball on one of our many pristine beaches, visit Simon’s Town to see the penguins, or take a walk in Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden. The trick is to enjoy each outing to the full, rather than packing too much into a day.
Cape Town is a city bursting at the seams with colour, creativity and humour. You only need to walk past the flower sellers of Adderley Street to get a taste of the zest for life that permeates the city. The Cape Minstrel Carnival, affectionately known as Cape Town’s answer to the Mardi Gras, is another wonderful example of the city’s creative spirit.
It’s hard to leave the sights and beaches of our beautiful city. Nevertheless, a trip to the spectacular Winelands for a day or two is not to be missed, with at least six wine routes besides the historical towns of Stellenbosch, Franschhoek and Paarl to explore.
