There’s more to Cape Town than meets the eye. Whether you’re a tourist or a local, chances are you haven’t experienced everything there is to see and do in the Mother City. To make it easier for you, you can take the Ultimate Cape Town Bucket List challenge: 100 experiences – have you had them all?
It’s proving popular with readers, and the creators at Cape Town Tourism report that over 20 000 eager quiz-takers have faced up to the challenge so far, and that number is growing daily.
The top 10 activities might surprise you!
Leading the pack is a drive over the iconic Chapman’s Peak coastal drive, and who could resist that winding meander up the mountain with the Sentinel mountain looming in the distance over the water at Hout Bay?
Other leading activities on the Bucket List include a visit to Cape Point, Kirstenbosch Garden, wine tasting at the wine farms, a stroll through the V&A Waterfront and those quirky little penguins over at Boulders Beach.
Kirstenbosch is in the top 10 twice, actually, once for picnicking and once for the Summer Concerts, so you could tick off two in one visit. Finishing up the top 10 there’s a cable car trip up Table Mountain, a hike up Lion’s Head and cocktails on the strip at Camps Bay.
There are some unexpected treats on the list, though: feeding the squirrels in the Company’s Garden is something many have done (not quite as spectacular as whale watching or spying on hippos in Rondevlei Nature Reserve, but still a delight for locals and visitors).
Lots of the attractions revolve around eating – what’s not to love about that? Whether it’s fish ‘n chips at Kalky’s, High Tea at a hotel or a must-have braai at Mzoli’s, everyone can experience these with relative ease. Don’t forget the famous Gatsby!
Oddly, shark cage diving is also low on the list, and yet visitors come from all over the world to experience these magnificent creatures living in False Bay. Most shark diving operators are strictly eco-friendly and aware of environmental tourism ethics, so don’t miss out on the unique chance to meet a Great White shark eye-to-eye.
