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.
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.
Each of Cape Town’s Big 6 feature superb restaurants and world-class dining, in the most incredible surroundings. The restaurants are all open year-round, but there are few better times to dine out at the city’s top attractions than during the month of February.
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.
