Adventure junkies can find all the action they need. Lovers can rekindle their romance. Families can enjoy special time together. And foodies can have their fill of world-class wines and outstanding cuisine. Lovers of luxury and big spenders will also be spoiled for choice. But, as the old advertising adage goes, that’s not all.

The city is oozing with culture and creativity; shopping and shows; adventure and art; luxury experiences and vintage finds, and more. It’s also the perfect place for high-octane boys’ adventures; and indulgent relaxation for the girls.

Get your blood pumping with an adrenalin-fuelled adventure weekend of hikes up Lion’s Head, abseiling down Table Mountain, skimming the waves in surfing lessons, diving with the mighty great white shark, zip lining across tree canopies and paragliding off mountain tops.

Explore Cape Town’s restaurant scene and find out why the city is fast gaining a reputation as one of the world’s foodie capitals. Afterwards, dance off those calories in vibey clubs and pubs around the city. Many venues are gay-friendly, too, so you’ll have a chance to soak up the LGBTQ vibe at places locals love to go.

If you need some retail therapy, get your glam on at high-end boutiques and fashion showrooms; or blend in with the beautiful people at fashion shows and designer events. But it’s not all high-end glitz. You’ll also find vintage gems and hand-crafted trinkets at markets and independent stores around the city centre and beyond.

For quality family time, kids of all ages will love the variety of activities available, including go-karting, zip lining, roller coasters and pirate boat adventures, followed by food and drink at many family-friendly restaurants. Culture vultures will also find their zone, with street art and other art tours, art galleries, design centres and design festivals.

Don’t miss the spectacular art of the natural world at the world-famous Kirstenbosch Gardens, too. And for star-struck lovers, there are myriad ways to keep the romance alive. Lose yourself in front of warm fires, breath-taking sunsets and intimate spa experiences in gorgeous surroundings. Wake up to whatever you want to do this weekend.
