7 Things to do this week(end)

Enjoy a day of fresh air with vineyard walks or trips to farms this weekend

Weekends call for days spent strawberry picking at Redberry Farm, walking through vineyards, riding up Table Mountain, finding secret waterfalls or immersing yourself in a gallery or two. This week gear up for a week(end) packed with things to do and places to visit. 

 

TAKE A DAY TRIP TO REDBERRY FARM

Strawberry picking, mini train rides, pony rides and trail runs are just some of the fun things you can do at Redberry Farm in George. But their real showstopper is their hedge maze which is the largest permanent hedge maze in the Southern Hemisphere. While the kids dare to escape the giant maze, parents can kick up their feet and enjoy a strawberry-inspired lunch. The Red Shed restaurant serves up a delicious scone tea and more at Redberry Farm

Date: 9am - 4pm, Monday to Saturday

 

HAVE A PICNIC OUT IN THE CAPE POINT VINEYARDS

For a weekend adventure that's not too far away, grab the family and head out to Noordhoek for an idyllic vineyard walk. The Cape Point Vineyards walk is open to the public every Saturday and Sunday, plus you can bring a picnic blanket and stock up on snacks from the wine shop inside. Take the chance to soak up a 360-degree view of the mountains, the fynbos, the grapes and the Atlantic ocean all in one vineyard walk.

Date: Every Saturday and Sunday

 

IMMERSE YOURSELF IN AFRICAN CULTURE 

Buff up on African history, from oral storytelling and protest music through to an evocative story about a family who was evicted from their home during apartheid. This Bo-Kaap family's experience is told through a photographic exhibition in the building that used to be their home. Go further back and learn about artefacts and fossils. All of these exhibitions are on at one of the collections of Iziko Museums. There are strict Covid-19 policies to ensure your safety when you visit the Iziko Museums. 

Date: See article, as times are dependent on which of the museums you visit.

 

HIKE TO A SECRET WATERFALL

Take a dip in the refreshing icy rockpool surrounded by luscious moss after an adventurous hike. The waterfall is about forty metres of sheer drop and is a spectacular sight to behold. The hike starts off relatively easy; however, soon, you will need to stretch to get up, over and around the gorge's rock formations. Don’t forget your hiking shoes, a bottle of water and sunscreen to hike along with Trail Fit SA. 

Date: Saturday, 30 January

 

CALLING ALL LOCAL AESTHETES TO RIEBEEK KASTEEL

FIND OUT WHAT THE RUPERT MUSEUM HAS TO OFFER
