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).
