Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden lives up to its reputation as the most beautiful garden in Africa and one of the great botanic gardens of the world. Few gardens can match the sheer grandeur of the setting of Kirstenbosch, against the eastern slopes of Cape Town’s Table Mountain.
In the News: September means spring and time to think about flowers, particularly our own indigenous flora. This year you can look at southern African flora through the eyes of our top botanical artists at the exhibition on at the Old Mutual Conference Centre, Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens from 17-25 September.
Whether you are looking to immerse yourself in art or become one with nature, there is no shortage of amazing places to enjoy nature and art in the Mother City.
May is a great time to explore the Mother City, the weather is milder, there are fewer crowds and nature is at its showiest – think glorious sunrises & sunsets and golden foliage. So come and have some #FuninMay with the Cape Town Big 7!
Cape Point is running a fabulous Winter Special where 2 kids, aged 6 – 16, ride the funicular for free with every paying adult. This special was just too good to pass up, and on Friday we took a drive to the Table Mountain National Park for a day out in nature. It was a cold, wintery day and we bundled up with jackets and hats to keep ourselves warm.
Cape Town is considered one of the best places in the world for both the locals and the visitors. And one thing they all agree upon is the breathtaking scenery of the Mother City. Just search the hashtag #CapeTown on Instagram and you will find amazing photographs of the city.

If you’ve been to or live in Cape Town you’ll know we’re all about the outdoors. Sure, we’ve got some amazing indoor options throughout the city, including fantastic museums, restaurants, shopping and entertainment centres (including the Cape Town Big 6’s own V&A Waterfront), but when the sun’s out, the city really comes to life. Just take a quick trip to the Sea Point Promenade, the Green Point Urban Park, or any one of the Cape’s beaches on even a vaguely sunny day, and you’ll see what we mean. And it’s no different at the Big 6: here’s our selection of top outdoor things to see and do in the Cape.
