Fun Things to Do in Cape Town This Weekend
In no particular order, here are our top picks on the best things to do in Cape Town this weekend.
Head Out to Hard Rock Cafe
Situated on the first floor of The Promenade, on Beach Road in Camps Bay, Hard Rock Café offers the perfect place to grab a drink and a bite to eat after a day on the beach. Although the weather may be on the cloudy side this weekend, it is all sunshine at this trendy bar and restaurant. Highlights include the tantalising Rock n Bowl menu that features flavours from all over the world, as well as Soulful Sundays. Running from 18h00 to 22h00, Sunday evening is when you can enjoy sultry jazzy sounds on the decks and delicious cocktails at the bar. Entry is free.

Catch a Concert Under the Stars
Every Sunday evening in the summer months, Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens hosts some of the country’s top musical acts on their large concert lawn. This weekend, you can watch legendary band, Fokofpolisiekar take to the open-air stage. Known for their deep sounds and edgy lyrics, this band is always an experience you will not forget in a hurry. Tickets cost between R135 and R180 via Webtickets. Pack a picnic, bring something warm and prepare for a night of live music under the African skies this coming Sunday.

Savour Local Wines
While we highly recommend our Full Day Wine Tasting Tour that takes you to the Cape Winelands, you don’t have to venture too far to savour local wines. The Constantia Wine Route is smaller but closer, with some of the country’s very first estates to be found here. Groot Constantia is always great for a visit. Take a walk on the shady tree-lined path alongside the massive rolling lawn, looking out for baboon and guinea fowl. Walk back down to the main houses, to see the duck pond. You can stop for lunch or try a wine tasting or even take a short cellar tour. For details on where to dine, taste wine and enjoy other activities within the estate, visit www.grootconstantia.co.za.
Take a Stroll Around Kalk Bay
Kalk Bay is always a good place to be on any day of the weekend. An overcast or slightly cloudy day is perfect for an afternoon or morning out in False Bay. Take a walk down the Main Road, stopping at the many quirky shops along the way. Go for oysters and beer at Brass Bell, a local haunt within Harbour House. This restaurant and bar overlook the ocean, with waves crashing to the shore below as well as an outdoor bar and a viewing deck. You can then take a walk along the harbour, spotting lazy fur seals, boats, fishermen, curio sellers and all sorts of other wonders.
And there you have it, folks… a good list of things to keep you busy this weekend. Be sure to follow us on Facebook or check out our blog to find even more ideas on the top things to do in Cape Town this weekend and every weekend.
