One of the best things about the Mother City is that there is always something new to do, an adventure to take, a gem to discover and new places to explore. Here are 8 things you may never have done in Cape Town before, but definitely should do now:
1/ Constantia Sunday Funday with Kiff Kombi Tours
Are you looking for a new, and incredibly cool, Cape Town adventure to fill your Sunday? Look no further! Kiff Kombi Tours has launched an all-new Constantia Sunday Funday experience that is jam-packed with one incredible adventure after the other.

Calling all artistic enthusiasts and lovers of all things creative!

3/ Take your love of Gin to a new level with the Cape Town Gin Route
Are you a lover of all things Gin? Does the thought of going on a Gin tour excite you more than anything? Then this is an absolute MUST!

It is open on Saturdays and Sundays.
5/ Experience casual fine dining at Janse & Co
