Boulders Beach Penguin Colony

Simon’s Town

Boulder’s Beach is home to a unique and endangered land-based colony of African penguins. A visit to Foxy Beach, the main colony, with viewing from the boardwalk, gets you up-close to the cute creatures and tells about the history of the colony. If it’s a sunny day, stay at Boulders for a while, as its three pristine beaches offer a great opportunity for a dip.

Zipline at Silvermist

Constantia Nek

Zipline along seven separate lines overlooking the Cape Peninsula from Silvermist Mountain. This high-flying experience from SA Forest Adventures takes you 155m above ground, and as far as 500m – one of Africa’s highest and longest ziplines.

Table Mountain Picnic

Table Mountain

Hike to the top of Table Mountain to work up an appetite, then indulge in a picnic spread at the summit. There’s no need to pack your own basket as the dining options at the top offer delicious meals and snacks, along with plenty of outdoor seating – where each table has a prime view!

Scratch Patch

V&A Waterfront

Have loads of fun ‘scratching’ for your favourite tumble-polished gemstones from Scratch Patch’s collection. Thousands of stones that quite literally cover the floor, and kids get to dig and explore for their special finds including tiger’s eye, rose quartz, amethyst, agates and crystals.
