Things To Do In Cape Town

There’s never a shortage of fun things to do when it comes to Cape Town tourism including exploring the unique tastes the city has to offer.

For foodies and adventurous eaters, The Africa Café should be a definite stop, offering a variety from peri-peri prawn to spinach patties and delicacies from all over Africa.

In the same vein, Pan African restaurant Mama Africa should also be given a peek; offering similar albeit a completely different range of African foods, it also serves as much assortment of meat as a person can want to eat.

The Cape Town tourist attractions do not end there, however, for the history buffs, District Six Museums and Robben Island are compulsory visits.

The South African apartheid history has for long been a topic of interest around the world. Robben Island is most especially remembered as where South African icon Nelson Mandela spent 18 years in prison. President Jacob Zuma also spent ten years on Robben Island after being arrested with 45 other ANC recruits.

The South African Museum and the Slave Lodge are also popular choices for those who would enjoy the District Six Museum or Robben Island.

Bay Market

Visiting the markets for experience sake or to acquire souvenirs is definitely considered a noteworthy experience. Markets like Oranjezicht City Farm which holds every Saturday from 9am to 2pm, the Bay Harbour Market, Kirstenbosch Craft Market, Affair On The Hill or Durbanville Craft Market are definitely worth a visit.

If Window Shopping is your activity of choice, the markets are good places to start. There are also other interesting malls like the Constantia Village, the Willowbridge Shopping Center and The Cavendish Square to visit which should delightfully add to your Cape Town Tourism Experience.

Cape Town Beaches

Beaches in Cape Town are the surest way to laze away in the day time. They add to the Cape Town tourism experience mostly because they are idyllic and can take you far away from your troubles and present worries.
