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!

Take a bush or nature walk through the reserve at Cape Point or follow the shipwreck trail, and discover why the Cape of Good Hope was once known as The Cape of Storms:

Enjoy public art: From statues to street art, the City Walk has a rich layer of public art. Visit the many museums in the Company Garden and immerse yourself in art, history, culture and science.

Combine a visit to Groot Constantia with a trip on the Cape Town Red Bus. This is a great idea for two reasons: First of all, enjoy a scenic drive to the wine estate, and two you will get a designated driver.

Walk among the treetops on the Boomslang Tree Canopy Walkway at Kirstenbosch, before enjoying a light meal at Moyo or the Kirstenbosch Tea Room.

Is there anything better than an early morning walk at Kirstenbosch? #CTbig7 #Kirstenbosch
