There is a good chance you are visiting Cape Town to conduct business. Still, you are now in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Don’t let this opportunity to explore pass by you.

Under current restrictions and regulations you can self-explore some of the city’s signature natural and architectural icons. It is strongly advised to do so as part of a couple or threesome.

  1. Vibrant Bo Kaap:

The Bo-Kaap is situated at the top end of the CBD at the foot of Signal Hill. See the colourful houses, smell the spices and hear a call to prayers of the local mosque. This part of Cape Town is a unique, real gem and you will totally fall in love with it.

  1. South Africa oldest garden:

Company’s Garden, an oasis right in the center of the city is a favourite for both locals and tourists. The site is important historically, and is a thriving urban space where buskers strum guitars while office workers sun themselves over lunch hour.


  1. The Golden Mile:

Sea Point Promenade is where all walks of life meet. This is one of Cape Town’s most lively attractions, bringing together cyclists, dog-walkers, joggers, skaters, amblers, and everyone in between. The Prom, as locals call it, starts at Mouille Point near the Waterfront, and runs along the water’s edge through Sea Point.

  1. Hiking Table Mountain:

There are few experiences to beat walking on Table Mountain or elsewhere in the Table Mountain National Park. Use one of the recommended routes to enjoy the wonders the park has to offer.

Look for The 5 most popular hiking routes on the South African National Parks (SANParks) website or join a local group like Sunday Sunset Hike.

  1. Stroll around the V&A Waterfront:

This one of a kind harbour edge attraction is filled with eye catching charms.

The Nobel Square, performing Buskers, Old Port Captain’s Building, Clock Tower, the Silo District or Battery Park to name a few. Just put on your walking shoes.

  1. Enjoy a magnificent sunset:

This everyday occurrence is never taken lightly by locals. We document it, we take pictures, we share on social and we try to catch as many as possible of this magical moment. And we get a different theme to this daily show as seasons pass.

On sea level at the promenade or Camps Bay, on a few spots along Kloof or Victoria Roads, on the slop of Signal Hill or from your sea facing hotel room. Take this time to indulge.

  1. Take the Constantia Alphen trail:

The trail winds along the Diep River to the Constantiaberg Mountain and in places allows one to walk on either side of the river, with a number of bridge crossings. It’s a beautiful walk filled with lush grass, trees, beautiful skies and the Le Sueur Meadow on the far end of the walk towards Hohenort.

  1. Take a selfie or the perfect Table Mountain postcard picture along Blouberg’s Otto du Plessis Drive (M14):

Uninterrupted view of the iconic Table Mountain across the bay just waits for you to pose. It’s far enough to capture the full panorama and still only 15 minutes’ drive from the city center.

You can get there using MyCiti bus with a 1 day pass.
