EXPERIENCE THE CAPE, THE ADVENTURERS ITINERARY
Keen to sample some of our famous Cape wines? If you don't have time to head to the Winelands, try the closer Constantia Wine Route instead. It's smaller, but you can still enjoy a range of fine wines, and get discounted cellar rates to take some home too.
No visit to Cape Town is complete without a tour of the local townships such as Khayalitsha. Visit school kids, meet entrepreneurs and artists, enjoy real African beer and learn more about the other side of life in the Mother City.
We bet you've heard about shark cage diving – put all the Jaws thoughts out of your head though, because this is an experience unlike anything you could imagine. False Bay shark trips depart from Simons Town, with the unique breaching and other Great white behaviour to be seen from the boat even if you don't venture into the cage.
Give the folks back home a taste of Cape Town magic with gifts from our awesome markets. Greenmarket Square is just off Long Street, while very close to this market is St George's Mall and even the Church Street Antique Market where you are sure to find something for your lady.
Head to the Waterfront to try a quick cruise around the harbour, a longer champagne cruise, sunset cruise or even a full on marine safari cruise to see seals, dolphin and other marine life. Tours depart from the V&A Waterfront dock throughout the day.
VISIT THE CAPE, THE EXPLORERS ITINERARY
Bree Street, City Centre
Running parallel to the better-known (yet somewhat 'been there, done that') Long Street, Bree is filled with quirky shops, eateries, bars, galleries and other interesting finds. From old-school boxing gyms to modelling agencies and even Heritage Square, this road is local diversity at its best.
Also known as 'Heart Bay', this area can be accessed via Chapmans Peak Drive or through tree-lined roads leading from Kirstenbosch Gardens. Take a boat trip to see Seal Island, eat fish and chips on the beach, Cape Town style and have a drink at Dunes to finish off the day.
You may have seen the tiny, brightly hued cottages set on cobbled hills in various guidebooks and whatnot. But Bo Kaap is more than just interesting architecture. Take a walking tour to visit local traders, the spice market or one of the museums in this historic Cape Malay area.
If we had to encourage you to try at least one obvious place, the Waterfront would be it. Marimba bands playing in the sunshine, world-class shopping, the Two Oceans Aquarium, boat cruises, helicopter flips and even the Wheel of Excellence are all to be found in this popular harbour hot-spot.
Home to one of South Africa's FIFA Soccer World Cup stadiums, as well as a rather awesome Urban Park, off-beat nightlife and the promenade, Green Point is a great place to chill, explore or just take in the views of mountain and sea, with a sunset thrown in too depending on the time of day you visit.
EAT CAPE TOWN, YOUR CULINARY ITINERARY
Right at the Kalk Bay station is the Brass Bell – home to the best West Coast oysters, excellent seafood, a great vibe and epic views of the ocean.
Caprice is something of an institution in Camps Bay, situated opposite the beach amidst palm trees and ocean views. Beautiful people, excellent burgers and a good cocktail menu make it a must.
In the heart of the V&A Waterfront, Karibu serves up African cuisine at its finest. Ideal for lunch or dinner, there are few other places where you can enjoy dishes like these in a smart yet relaxed setting.
We may be a very long way from Mexico, but that doesn't mean we don't do Mexican well. El Burro is in Green Point, and is a favourite with locals and visitors alike. Try their margaritas to stay cool in the Cape Town summer heat!
One thing to note about Cape Town: we love real beer. Brewers&Union has their own craft brewery, serving up the finest beer in the city. Popular haunt for locals in the digital, creative and social industries.
