As vaccination programs roll out across the globe, we’ll soon start to see some normality returning to the realm of travel. Prepare yourself with this list of classic Cape Town sights you shouldn’t miss during your 2022 trip.
Enjoy Table Mountain from Every Angle
A trip up to the top of this iconic inselberg is a don’t miss activity for any visitor to the Mother City. You can get there via the cable car or take one of the well-worn hiking paths to the summit.
When you get there, enjoy some lunch at the restaurant, with glorious views of the city sprawled before your eyes. You can also explore most nooks and crannies of the natural environment here on guided or self-guided walks, and even abseil down the cliffs.
Fuel Your Explorations
You’d be missing out if you didn’t experiment with every kind of cuisine up for grabs in Cape Town. Here you can support local food vendors plying passers-by with street food, test out some of the world’s finest restaurants and sample fresh seafood straight form the ocean.
Some of our top picks include:
- Kalky’s in Kalk Bay for fish and chips
- The Creamery’s ice cream
- Breakfast at Starlings Cafe
- Tapas and oysters at Bistro 1682
- A traditional braai at Oudekraal, near Camp’s Bay
- High tea at Mt Nelson Hotel
- The Potluck club for brunch
Don’t forget the host of artisan eats up for grabs at markets and wine farms across the city and its surrounds too. You’ll also find no shortage of fine wines, craft beers, and excellent locally-produced gins to wash it all down.
Take to the Water
With two oceans and plenty of other water sources to choose from, you’re sure to find somewhere suitable to immerse yourself during your stay.
Why not try your hand at surfing with a few lessons at Little Bay in Bloubergstrand? You can also take a walk in the lovely environment of Silvermine Nature Reserve and plunge into the reservoir.
You can get to grips with Mother nature at so many places in and around Cape Town.
The best ways to embrace the outdoors is with horse rides along Noordhoek Beach or hikes in the Helderberg Nature Reserve. You can also visit one of the conservation efforts near town, like Boulders Beach, or Ashia Cheetah Sanctuary.
