24 Hours in Cape Town

2018-04-05

Motorcycle Tour

Start your morning in Cape Town in a unique way: with a tour of Cape Town in the sidecar of a WWII-era motorcycle! Not only is this an adventure of its own, but you also get experience the beautiful scenery of the mother city with the wind rushing over your fingertips. It feels like a music video, I promise you. Even if you do decide to take the short tour, you will not be disappointed in the unique beauty of such an alternative adventure. 

Table Mountain

No trip to Cape Town is complete without going to Table Mountain. After a trip on the ground, it’s time to take to the sky. It’s the symbol of the city and gives you a view of everything from Devils Peak to Lions head to the Atlantic Ocean. On a clear day, you can even see Robben Island out in the big blue, where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned. My tip to you, book your cable car tickets before you go to avoid any long lines.

Bo-Kaap

Head back to town and explore the beautiful and colourful (no pun intended) part of our history that we call Bo-Kaap. Many of the residents in this area are descendants of slaves from Indonesia and Malaysia. When apartheid ended, the residents celebrated their freedom by painting their houses with bright and happy colours as well as customizing the area. Today Bo-Kaap is known for its Multicultural make-up and amazing ethnic food. Once you have taken in the wonders of the colourful streets and had a chat with the locals, try and squeeze in a cooking lesson!

Sunset at Clifton Beach

Experience one of the most beautiful sunsets on Clifton beach. The beach is quite nice, but the real beauty lies in the glowing sunset light painted on the Twelve Apostles’ mountain range hugging around the bay. Feel free to pack a picnic basket and gather all your friends, you might even be lucky and see a flame dance show!
