Don’t be put off by the Cape winter weather, it is exciting and thrilling and there is still loads to do to keep busy this long weekend!

Put aside the whole morning so that you can go at your own pace and make sure to pack enough water and snacks. Wear sturdy hiking shoes and take a jacket and gloves for the cold. Make sure your cell phone has full battery and you have an emergency number loaded. We recommend Platteklip Gorge as a good route to take.Read More

A picnic at the amazing Maidens Cove did not disappoint. The Twelve Apostles and activity on Camps Bay Promenade brilliant.
