Rent a car for a Cape Town adventure.
There are so many things to do and see in Cape Town, but we’ve compiled a list of 5 things everyone should definitely do or see. This ‘What to do and see’ segment will be posted in four parts. Part 1 will definitely touch your adventurous side and enrich your historical curiosity.
Table Mountain Cable Car ride
Catch a cable car up Table Mountain; spend the day in nature and abseil back down again. If you heart can’t handle this adventure packed journey home, you can take the cable car back down again. If you’re feeling fit, hike up the various beautiful trails all the way to the top.
Dive with the sharks
South Africa has quite a shark population going. ¼ of the world’s shark population swim around in South Africa’s’ waters. If you’re keen enough and adventurous enough, take the 175 km drive to Gaansbaai and become friends with the white sharks.
Entice your taste buds
Cape Town’s cuisine is like a culinary explosion in your mouth. There is a rich variety and your taste buds will thank you for coming to Cape Town. A dish of garlic prawns or a tender fillet steak, freshly picked steamed vegetables or cape Malayan dishes, traditional African dishes or fresh sushi. All in one place for your taking…and eating.
Take a trip down SA memory lane
South Africa’s history forms part of who we are today. Robben Island and the District Six Museum is a must for everyone interested in history. Robben Island represents oppression, but also hope and strength. Nelson Mandela spent an 18 year sentence there. The District Six Museum is an award winning museum that shows the time when 60 000 houses were destroyed in District Six and residents were forcibly moved to the cape flats.

Take a stroll through Company Gardens and then take a left/right into Adderley Street where you’ll find the National Gallery, showcasing South African art. Don’t forget to go to the House of Parliament, Iziko Museum, Iziko Planetarium and Iziko Slave Lodge.
