See an open-air movie

What better way to celebrate Easter Sunday than with a family-fun movie, jumping castles, face painting, balloon artists and, of course, an Easter Egg hunt!

Visit Cape Town’s biggest attractions

The Cape Town Big 6 represents the perfect combination of dramatic scenic beauty, enthralling history and exhilarating activities that have come to define this beautiful corner of South Africa. Cape Point, Groot Constantia, Kirstenbosch, Robben Island Museum, Table Mountain Cableway and V&A Waterfront are the iconic destinations that form the core of the true Cape Town experience, and a trip to the city will not be complete without a visit to each Big 6 attraction.
