Everyone needs a holiday. So why not consider taking a vacation in your own city? Cape Town has to offer by embracing the tourist mentality, and you’d be able to keep your wallet happy by exchanging flights with local taxis (or Ubers if you will). Here are a few places you can visit to have a taste of that tourist lifestyle you crave.
Boulders Beach is known for its distinctive black and white African Penguins waddling around and relaxing on visitors’ beach towels or swimming around you while you go for a quick dip in the ocean. So, arrive early on a nice warm day, find the best picnic spot, grab a book and smile and wave to these beautiful sea birds.
If you’d like a closer look at how these penguins live their lives, there is a boardwalk to the other side of the beach where the main colony resides. Here, you can get a real close-up view of them eating, sleeping and chatting away.
Tip: From 1 November SANParks will offer South African citizens the opportunity to visit both Cape Point and Boulders Beach at a reduced price, along with a new online ticketing system which prevents you from having to sit in long queues at these destinations.
