Cape Town has an abundance of surf spots along our coast, from coves with small, gentle swells, to expansive beaches boasting big, bone-crunching waves. Rather surprisingly, the typically icy Cape Peninsula water temperatures rise during the winter time, making the months of June, July and August ideal for a surf. Whether you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced surfer, there’s a break perfect for you. For beginners, we recommend the Surf Emporium at Muizenberg where a team of professional surf coaches offer individual or group lessons and all equipment can be hired.
There’s nothing quite like free-wheeling down the coastal roads of the Cape Peninsula with the wind billowing through your hair and the sun on your back. Cape Town’s natural environment is abundant with tarmac roads, single tracks, switch backs and jeep tracks to suit everyone from the leisure cyclist to the technical rider. There’s never been more of an excuse to swap the car for your own steam. For guided cycling for all levels of skill and fitness, we recommend iRideAfrica.
In Cape Town, any day trip in the Cape Peninsula can include sightings of penguins, baboons, whales and other wild animals — even when “safari” isn’t on the day’s agenda.
For a Big 5 experience, we can help you arrange your safari to one of South Africa’s premier game parks.
Seal snorkeling with Animal Ocean, Hout Bay is the ultimate wildlife experience for the adventurous. Plunge into the Atlantic Ocean and swim with hundreds of playful and curious Cape Fur seals, interacting with them in their natural environment. The team at Animal Ocean are professional, knowledgeable, safety conscious and dedicated to you having an intimate experience with swirling seal pods. If you’re lucky dolphin’s and whales might show themselves.

Explore the entire city and its various attractions using the “red bus” at your own pace. Very easy to hop on and off at the different stops and offers a great family outing. We recommend that you plan your stops as the trip offers flexibility to enjoy a “hop-off” to explore a destination and then get the next bus.
