Overview


Up the mountain we go, the cable car revealing the incredible vistas of the city and ocean the higher we climb. On reaching the top, we move away from the crowds, tracking a dassie (local rock rabbit) and breaking for a well-earned hot chocolate and delicious baked goods. Returning to sea level, we hop on our bikes, cycling along the Sea Point Promenade to explore the Atlantic Seaboard, where children lead the exploration with their own interactive maps. Stopping at art installations en-route, we listen to the story of Mandela, whilst gazing out towards Robben Island where he spent so many years imprisoned. Staying safe and off road we head into Green Point Park for a fun insight into the unique Cape flora and fauna before lunch.

Once our energy levels have been replenished, it’s time to explore the city’s uplifting urban art projects, District Six and interactive sites like the Apartheid Benches which bring to life the history which has shaped our nation. (Terrific stuff for teens and older “kids.”)

Families with younger kids proceed to Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens for an afternoon of running rampant within the estate. Follow a treasure map which leads between tree-top canopy walkways and prehistoric cycad gardens (complete with dinosaurs). Jump over steppingstones, climb Van Riebeek’s historic hedge and barrel down lawns in search of Claud the Clawless Otter.

Slowing things down, end the day at the beach and, while parents sip sundowners with their feet in the sand, tired, happy kids burn away the last of their energy, making use of our on-board toy box to play beach games with their energetic guide.
