Eating Out in Cape Town

Cape Town cuisine has strong influences from such diverse places like Malaya, India, Japan, African and Europe. But if there is one thing the Cape Town locals love to eat, it is slabs of meat, sausages and in coastal areas fish and rock lobster cooked on the Braai, a South African Barbecue.

To accompany any meal whether it is standing around the Braai or at a good restaurant you can’t go past a good glass of Cape Town wine. Cape Town’s wineries are renowned around the world and we recommend not only trying some but taking a tour of the local wineries.

Places to See in Cape Town

Cape Town is the perfect holiday destination for adventurers and nature lovers. Hiking up Table Mountain to admire the view, there is a cable car if it is too strenuous, visit Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was incarcerated, dive with sharks in False Bay, visit Boulders beach and swim with the penguins, admire the colourful houses and enjoy some seafood at the fishing town of Kalk’s Bay, wander the botanic gardens and finally finish the day with dinner at one of the restaurants overlooking Camps Bay.

Shopping in Cape Town

In Cape Town you can find everything imaginable, from African artefacts to luxury goods. If you love market shopping then you can’t go past Greenmarket Square or Greenpoint Stadium on Sundays. If shopping centres are more your style then you have the choice of Gardens Shopping Centre, Cavendish Square or Constantia Village where you will find local designs as well as big multinational chain stores.

Cape Town for Kids

In Cape Town there are adventures for kids and for the young at heart. If you are travelling with family you can visit the Two Oceans Aquarium, where children can get up close and personal with sharks and other marine life. To burn off some energy take the kids to Children’s Planet, full of jumping castles, slides and climbing wall, all with a space theme. If you feel the need for speed then you need to go to Cool Runnings, a bobsleigh track without the ice and snow. Ratanga Junction theme park is always a great option for children you’ll probably have a lot of fun too.

Nightlife in Cape Town

You can start off the night on the terrace of Café Caprice sipping on a glass of wine or a cocktail whilst watching the sun set into the ocean. Once the sun goes down head to the bar lined Long Street, you will be spoilt for choice. If you prefer a quiet drink Karma Lounge with its terrace overlooking the sea is a good option. For an interesting night out in Cape Town head to Side Show Club where they have live music and trapeze artists performing.
