In the summertime, the Cape Town sunshine lingers until late in the evening so it’s easy to make the most of your Cape Town self-catering stay. Check out these exciting things to get up to in the twilight zone.
Here’s your go-to list of unusually different things to do in Cape Town after-hours.
Stage a Sit-In
The days of drive-in movies may be fading into the past, but that doesn’t mean you have to confine yourself to a cinema when you’re in the mood for a movie. The Galileo Outdoor Theatre is Cape Town’s premier outdoor movie offering complete with surround sound, comfy seating and popcorn. See what’s on the playlist here and enjoy your night out with the stars.
You can also grab a dose of Shakespeare, the Cape Town City Ballet, the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra and comedy out in the open air. It’s all on the go at the Maynardville Open-Air Festival from January to March.
Crawl Along Kloof Street
If you happen to be in town on the third Thursday of any month (and you’ve already done a “First Thursday”), you’re in luck. Get on the Burger Brews Beer Route and take a walk down one of Cape Town’s trendiest streets, sipping and snacking along the way. It’s the swankiest pub crawl in town.
Head Out Under the Full Moon
Every time the moon rises round and high in the sky, hundreds of Capetonians come out of the woodwork and saddle up for a cycle around the city by night. The route kicks off at Greenpoint Circle and it’s a fun way to see the city in a different light while socialising with fellow cyclists.
If cycling isn’t your style, try one of these other exciting full moon activities in Cape Town.
Shivers in Simonstown
Halloween may have come and gone, but Simonstown is still awash with spooky activities. Take a tour of the shadier side of the quaint village on a Ghost Walk with historian and tour guide, Andre Leibbrandt. Find out about the mysterious museum, murderous local residents and other local lore.
Muizenberg Market After Dark
Get your fill of pizza, burgers, steaks and vegan eats at the Blue Bird Garage Market. It’s one of the city’s most unique indoor markets and even has a secret gin bar hidden out back.
