Top 6 Things to Do in Cape Town This Holiday Season
Enjoy the Spier wine farm at its best by zipping around on a Segway. The guided Segway tour will introduce you to the vineyards and natural farming practices as you glide along the River Garden and breeze past the yin-yang water recycling and re-energising plant.
Walk on high ropes among the treetops, navigate tunnels, walk across bridges and walkways, and conquer tricky crossings. Top off two hours of adventure with some of the spectacular ziplines on offer. Enjoy 2 hours of outdoor obstacle courses from Acrobranch. Each of the five Acrobranch parks in South Africa offers a variety of obstacle courses, some for fit teens and adults, and others more suitable for kids.
If you love outdoor adventures, don’t miss an opportunity to go canyoneering (or kloofing) in the Steenbras River Gorge with the Kamikaze Kanyon experience. Suitable for seasoned adrenaline junkies and novices who want to tick off their bucket lists alike, this adventure will test the mind and body, and leave you feeling accomplished, exhilarated and physically tired by dinner time.
Wet, wild and wonderful, this experience takes you into one of the most beautiful parts of South Africa – Kleinmond. Towering mountains and breathtaking scenery surround you in this World Heritage Site which stimulates all your senses.
No thrill-seeker’s bucket list is complete without an extreme powerboat experience with the wind in your hair and salt on your lips. Our Miami-style cigarette boat experience launches from the V&A Waterfront and is sure to get the heart pumping and the adrenaline flowing against the backdrop of the Atlantic seaboard. The 40 ft speedboat has 2 V8 engines to power us across the waves and to indulge in high-speed turns.
Take the family and enjoy a week of bliss in Simon’s Town with ocean views. Simon’s Town is a bustling town offering something for everyone. From shopping, restaurants, coffee shops and bars as well as stunning curios and boutique shops. Simon’s Town has old world charm, is quaint and surrounded by exceptional nature and scenery. Guests can enjoy various stunning beaches, walks, running, picnics, hikes, sailing and kayaking. Simon’s Town is renowned for very special penguin colonies and is in close proximity to a wonderful golf course, horse riding and the Cape Point Nature reserve. Simon’s Town is only 60 minutes away from the city of Cape Town or 30 – 40 minutes away from various upmarket shopping malls and movie facilities.
Enjoy South Africa’s only pirate boat, offering the young at heart an authentic adventure filled experience. Once on-board, you will enjoy a 60 minute cruise to include the best views that Cape Town has to offer. Pirates keep children and adults entertained with theatrics, singing and face painting. If you’re lucky enough, you may even see some dolphins who frequently visit the pirate ship and swim alongside the boat. Definitely a different type of experience and one to be remembered for quite some time.
Enjoy a fun filled tour of either the more boutique and local wine estates in the mountains, or the international wine estates in the valley with the Wine Tram. You will get to spend an hour at each estate, where you will get to enjoy a meal and wine tastings.
Cape Town is a city of adventure, luxury, and old-world charm. Make the most of your visit by booking any or all of the above things to do in Cape Town for your family.
