Cape Town...a dream destination for children! | My Family Travels

1. Table Mountain

Children love the cableway! It takes 15 minutes to go to the top (1086m) and you and them will have memorable views to take back home as well as an unique experience! I suggest that you go on top for sunsets to add even more beauty to your photo shouts! And I have good news for you: if it’s your birthday, take your ID and enjoy a ride for free! Yeaaahh!

2. The Castle of Good Hope

This is the oldest surviving building in Cape Town (1666-1679). A combination of history, traditional food, military ceremonies and craftsmanship awaits you. And to add a bit of romantism for the couple and fun for the kids, book a Horse and Carriage Tour.

3. City sight seeing bus

Ah! You see these red open top double decked buses all around town where they hop on and hop off tourists who want to have a city sight seeing with no stress! Two routes cover the city as far out as the world famous Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens and Hout Bay. Buses depart daily from 9am outside the Two Oceans Aquarium in the heart of the V&A Waterfront.

4. Put-put in Mouille Point (close to the lighthouse)

Situated on the promenade in Mouille Point, you’ll be playing golf with the sea in front of you. You can choose between 2 different courses of 18 holes each depending on your level.

5. Sundowners on Signal Hill

Signal hill is one of the places I like to go for sundowner when it’s wind free!!! I take a nice bottle of wine and a picnic basket and here I go with my friends or my husband if I feel like a more intimate time! The view of the city and the sea is awesome!

6. Kirstenbosch

Bring their swimming suits and a book for yourself and go for a pic nic along the river. You will have a delightful time together!

7. Cool runnings

I enjoyed it so much and the kids too! We spend an entire afternoon going down as quicker as possible trying to reach the maximum speed of 40 km/h! The twists and turns slow you down though!

8. Neighbourhood Goods market

What a vibe on Saturday’s morning! Every stands make an effort to look country style store. The shops at the Old Biscuit Mill are also very nice! Each time I go there I set myself a limit of the money to be spent!
