We ALL know of the good ol’ list of “must” things to do in Cape Town, these are seen in lit-erally every single magazine, , article, social media, need we go on.. So, being the fun team we are, we thought up a list of inspiring, unique things for you to do in the beautiful Town of the Cape:
Tucked into the valley of Hout Bay, a visit to this new establishment makes for an inspirational day filled with creativity and recreation, for all ages! First, you choose a clay pottery piece, and then sift through a wide selection of colorful paints and tools to create crockery that is both personal and completely unique. Spend a leisurely few hours painting in a relaxed environment whilst you enjoy one of their many farm style breakfasts or lunches. Booking is essential and costs may vary.
Sleep on top of Table Mountain
The exciting overnight hike at Table Mountain National Park begins at Kirstenbosch and makes scenic stops at the historic Waterworks Museum, the old reservoir, and a rock formation called “the diving board” which makes the perfect spot for that mid-hike photo shoot. Have a peaceful night’s sleep at the Overseers cottage and wake up feeling rejuvenated and ready for the day!

Only one flight is scheduled per day, with four people permitted per flight. We recommend the best time to balloon is March, since the weather conditions in are generally quite stable during this time.
