Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden is an old favourite for tourists and locals alike, but with the recent addition of the “Boomslang” treetop canopy walk, it’s definitely a city must-see! Besides the exquisite views, indigenous South African gardens and the great lists of events Kirstenbosch plays host to, you can also enjoy the Sculpture Garden. No wonder it’s everyone’s favourite place in Cape Town to picnic! Entrance fees cost about R50 for adults and R10 for kids, what a bargain!
2. V&A Market on the Wharf
The V&A Waterfront is at the top of every tourists list, but what a lot of people don’t know about is the wonderful food market on the water’s edge known as the V&A Market on the Wharf. The market is extremely popular amongst locals and tourists who are lucky enough to read about it on Gumtree (wink). You’ll find a wide and interesting array of cuisines that you can pick and choose from and I guarantee you’ll find something surprising that you’ve never tried before. Talk about a delicious outing!
3. Green Point Urban Park
The Green Point Urban Park was created in 2010 when the world visited Cape Town for the Soccer World Cup. The bio-diversity park upholds some high international standards and you may even find a celebrity or two hanging out there if you’re lucky. It’s the perfect place to visit for families and it’s also absolutely free. There’s an amazing view of the Cape Town Stadium where many of the 2010 World Cup games were played and you’ll feel a sense of instinct vacation when you walk into the lush park. There’s nothing better on a sunny weekend afternoon!
4. Old Biscuit Mill
The Old Biscuit Mill in Woodstock is just about the hippest place in Cape Town, especially on a Saturday morning when their famous market takes place. Catch a taxi to the Biscuit Mill and enjoy some lovely local shopping and some of the best restaurants Cape Town has to offer. Ever heard of the prestigious Test Kitchen? This is where you’ll find it, but remember to book far in advance to enjoy a meal you’ll never forget!
