Whether we like it or not, the rainy season is officially here! If you think Cape Town is the exception and is all about the outdoors and sunny skies, think again! The city is filled with many indoor activities one can enjoy on their own, with friends and family on days when the city is pouring with rain.
1. MAKE YOUR VERY OWN JEWELLERY
The Diamond Works are offering visitors the opportunity to create their very own jewellery piece with their Jewellery Making Workshop. You will of course be guided by experts while enjoying truffles and a glass of bottomless bubbles. If you’d rather prefer to watch the experts do their thing, then why not try the Sparkling Tour.
2. GIN, RUM AND SPIRITS TASTING
Try some award-winning gins or indulge in some rum and other innovative and distinct spirits that you probably have never ever tasted before at the Deep South Distillery.
3. SOMETHING FOR THE FOODIES
If you’re into the farm-to-table approach, then the Makers Landing market at the V&A Waterfront is the perfect place for you. Introducing food producers and small businesses who celebrate this approach from locally produced cheese to freshly ground coffee and so much more.
4. CHOCOLATE AND WINE PAIRING
Head over to Groot Constantia – South Africa’s oldest wine estate – and enjoy five selected fine wines paired with five handcrafted chocolates. Or you could simply try out their wine tasting options before heading off for a mouth-watering meal at one of their restaurants.
5. RUSSIAN HIGH TEA
Experience the grandeur of Russian nobility with a Russian Tea Ceremony at Hazendal Wine Estate. Here you will be treated like Russian Royalty as you are surrounded by hand-painted murals and crystal chandeliers, while enjoying a warm cup of tea and some delicious Russian sweet and savoury delights.
6. IF YOU’RE INTO ART:
The Norval Foundation is the perfect place to appreciate art sculptures, paintings, exhibitions and other forms of visual art. You can then enjoy a sumptuous meal at the Skotnes Restaurant and Bar which overlooks the sculpture garden.
7. RETAIL THERAPY
Take a trip to the V&A Waterfront, shop at all your favourite branded stores, and then enjoy a fine dining experience of cuisine of your choice at one of the many available restaurants
