Olympic Pole Dancing, Muddy Fools on Pyramid Scheme and a R5 Safari

The Galileo Open Air Cinema is back

Want to attend the cheapest safari ever? Go birdwatching for just R5 at the False Bay Nature Reserve and also see reptiles - don’t worry, you’ll be in safe hands while you’re doing it.

This weekend there’s also a party where DJs are playing the Durban sound that’s taking over the world, and a gardening event featuring Constantia’s most beautiful private gardens.

You can build friendships by getting dirty (and we mean really dirty) at the world’s biggest obstacle course event and for next week, we have a painting pig (no kidding).

15 Reasons to Get Your Car Serviced This Weekend
VW drivers who book to have their car serviced on a Saturday at Barons Cape Town VW will get a courtesy VW up! so they can drive to any one of the 15 experiences curated by CapeTownMagazine.com. The experiences are close to the Barons Cape Town VW branch, and are either free or at least very affordable. Bring your car this weekend and use the courtesy car to see a replica of the biggest rough diamond in the world, rocks made famous by the likes of Elizabeth Taylor at the Cape Diamond Museum.
