Out and about in Cape Town this weekend? Here are three special spots you should definitely consider visiting…
Have a picnic at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden
Kirstenbosch Gardens is a haven for nature lovers and it’s the perfect spot for a springy weekend picnic. Located at the eastern foot of Table Mountain, the garden is great to have a relaxing afternoon, exploring the beautifully landscaped gardens and just taking in nature.
Take a hike up Cape Town’s Table Mountain
Start your weekend off by taking a hike or riding the cable car to the top of Table Mountain. The panoramic views of the city, Atlantic Ocean, and surrounding landscapes are breathtaking. You can also explore the various walking trails and take in the unique flora and fauna of the Table Mountain National Park.
Hop on a boat to Robben Island
What better way to celebrate Heritage Month in Cape Town than by taking a boat tour to Robben Island. The UNESCO World Heritage Site and a former prison where Nelson Mandela was incarcerated for much of his life is a special spot indeed. The guided tours also provide valuable insights into South Africa’s history and struggle for freedom.
