Places to visit and things to do.....
V & A Waterfront
The V&A Waterfront is one of Africa’s most visited destinations with more than 24 million visitors annually. Situated in the oldest working harbour in South Africa, with the iconic Table Mountain as its backdrop, makes the V&A Waterfront a favourite for local and international visitors.
Table Mountain Aerial Cableway
The ride is a gentle one, the rotating state-of-the-art cable car takes visitors from the lower station to the top in around 5 minutes. It operates seven days a week and trips occur within 10 to 15 minutes of each other. The time of the day’s last excursion varies throughout the year. At the top of the mountain, located in a National Park is a self-service buffet café, while you can always pack a picnic basket.
You will find yourself 3,500ft above the city and here, in this unique location, you will also see rock hyrax, lizards, butterflies and the odd porcupine. There is also a wide array of birdlife from eagles to sunbirds flying above great patches of fynbos, flora that is endemic to the Western Cape region.
Robben Island Museum
Robben Island is a World Heritage Site and museum, offering daily tours from the Nelson Mandela Gateway at the V&A Waterfront. The tour starts with a multimedia exhibition in the museum. From here, guests hop onto the ferry for a scenic trip to the island. Once on Robben Island, the tour is guided by a former political prisoner of the island, for unique and incomparable insights into the island’s history.
Parents who want their children to learn more about South Africa’s political history and gain insight into the struggles and triumphs of the past, will find this Robben Island experience one of the many ways to share South Africa’s history and ensure that our children appreciate the city’s heritage.
