Take the Cape by storm this summer.
We left no boulder unturned when compiling The Top 200 Experiences in The Cape. From dinner by a Michelin-starred chef in a dinky cottage in a lavender field to game-spotting from a hot-air balloon in the Winelands and splashing about in the Cape’s world-famous tidal pools, we reveal the most exciting and rewarding things to do in the Cape this summer. Enjoy the Mother City from every angle and in every way… high up in the sky, out on the water or deep in a forest. There’s even a splash of art and culture, and where to find the best sweet treats in town.
In The Keys to Kalk Bay, Lin Murray unearths the essence of this seaside neighbourhood that’s both irresistibly stylish and a little scruffy (and shares her must-do list). We daytripped around the Strandveld, sat down with chef Jan Hendrik van der Westhuizen, and went on a bubbly bender with wine expert Malu Lambert!
We’ve also introduced our first-ever shopping feature, Made in the Cape: a covetable curation of luxury items that celebrate local design at its peak. We figured that inasmuch as zipping around Chapman’s Peak on a Vespa provides a dopamine rush, so too does a good spot of retail therapy (it’s been scientifically proved).
