"My personal favourites (in no particular order) are: Swimming with penguins at Boulders Beach in Simon's Town Hiking up Table Mountain from Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens and then getting the cable car down Whale watching in False Bay(mindful that they're only there in winter) The Two Oceans Aquarium Wandering through Bo-Kaap (with its distinctive ice-cream coloured little houses) Hiking the Silvermine Trail and looking down over the Atlantic beaches - particularly Hout Bay The drive south along Boyes Dr, looking over False Bay and ending up in Kalk Bay Walking/riding along Noordhoek Beach The astonishing (and often overlooked) Heart of Cape Town Museum at Groote Schuur Hospital, where Dr Christian Barnard performed the first heart transplant Open air concerts in Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens in the summer, which take lace against the backdrop of Table Mountain - usually on a Sunday evening."
