Wake up to love and adventure in Cape Town


Cape Town’s winter offers something for everyone, from weekends with the boys to igniting your passion with a significant other.

From 19-21 June, sample award-winning beers in the Newlands brewery and historic pub. Follow that with two hours of clay-pigeon shooting from the deck of a luxury 55-foot catamaran cruiser. If angling’s your thing, take a tour with Big Blue Fishing Charters in Simon’s Town and cast a line from the rocks, or climb aboard a deep sea fishing boat to battle the Cape snoek on their annual winter run.

Fend off the winter chill and find new and rare labels, or sip a dram or two of your favourite local single malts and world-famous blends at the unmissable FNB Whisky Live Festival, which runs from 18-20 June. Clear the cobwebs with a morning on the paintballing course at Blue Rock, then tuck into a man-sized shisa nyama at the world-renowned Mzoli’s in Gugulethu.

For a weekend that stirs your senses with delectable food, indulgent pampering and awe-inspiring sights, wake up to romance in Cape Town. The weather may be cool, but your heart will be warm. Whisk your loved one away from 24-26 June.

Discover the sensory joy of premium chocolate made by master chocolatiers at the Lindt Studio at the Cape Quarter Village. Later, unwind at the five-star Twelve Apostles Hotel with a couple’s spa day in breath-taking surroundings.

The seductive indulgence continues at the African Pride 15 on Orange Hotel, pairing authentic French champagnes with succulent West Coast oysters. Later, watch the sun melt into the ocean from the top of the majestic Table Mountain; and make memories of culinary excellence in elegant, sophisticated surroundings and expert sommeliers presenting world-class wines at the Greenhouse Restaurant.

And finally, book a pre-show dinner, catch an outstanding performance or try your luck at the casino at Grand West.

It’s cheaper and easier than ever to wake up to the world you want in Cape Town, whether you’re in love or with your outdoor-loving family; whether you’re hanging out with the boys or shopping with your besties.
