Top 7 things to do and not to do in Cape Townby Asanda Mcoyana

Our travel agents at Overlanding Africa went out to the streets once more to ask locals about things one should get up to around Cape Town. From a long list, here are your top seven things to do and top seven things NOT to do in Cape Town this festive season.


  1. Barter for curios at Green Market Square
  2. Visit the eco-friendly food market at The Old Biscuit Mill
  3. Check out Table Mountain
  4. Picnic at Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens
  5. Shark-cage diving in Simon's Town
  6. Take a township tour with friends
  7. Drive on the left


  1. Walk in the city late at night, especially on your own
  2. Give street kids money! A sandwich is much better
  3. Let a meter taxi rip you off, negotiate your rate
  4. Miss a sunset from Camps Bay beach; sundowner in hand
  5. Walk the streets with cameras dangling
  6. Don't get a fright when the Noon Gun (cannon) goes off
  7. Forget to take a city tour on the big red City Sightseeing bus!

Enjoy a safe and exhilirating travel experience this festive season.
