Great news from President Cyril Ramaphosa in the latest ‘Family meeting’, as so many South Africans have taken to calling his addresses to the nation. With active cases on the steady decline, and world-wide vaccinations encouraging travel once more, South Africa has been moved to Level 1 Lockdown restrictions. Across the nation, many of our favourite attractions are reopening their doors to encourage visitors from far and wide. There’s no better time to explore Cape Town safely, and with City Pass, you can easily visit all the attractions you’ve missed the most!
One Pass, 80+ Attractions - City Pass is Your Ticket to Cape Town.
To get the most out of your adventure in Cape Town, you’re going to want to skip out on waiting in queues and booking tickets. With any of our Passes, you can gain instant access to a selection of over 80 attractions - no queues, no waiting. Just full days of exploring and adventure. But where to go with your pass? If you’re new to the city, we’ve got a few favourite picks to help you get the most out of your Cape Town adventure.
First Stop? Table Mountain, our iconic landmark!
No adventure is complete without paying a visit to Table Mountain, our most notable landmark. And we’ll have you know she’s one of the New7Wonders of Nature, home to world heritage sites and our indigenous Cape Floral Kingdom.
It’s not just nice to look at either. You can ride in the Table Mountain Cable Car to get to the summit for free with your Pass! Once you’re up there, prepare to have your mind blown by the panoramic views of the peninsula – we dare say the views from up there are as incredible as the mountain itself.
Where too next? How about the Two Oceans Aquarium!
South Africa is famous for its African Wildlife, including the Big 5. But our oceans and rivers are just as thriving with species unique to our country, and you can see hundreds of them at the Two Oceans Aquarium..
Use your pass to get free access to a world of shimmering blue tanks, full of aquatic creatures both big and small. And your pass can also give you discounted access to diving experiences and penguin encounters!
It’s back outdoors again, and where better to get some fresh air than Kirstenbosch?
Cape Town is famous for its flora just as much as its fauna, with indigenous biomes boasting flowers and plants native to South Africa alone. Five of these biomes can be found and visited for free with your pass at the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens.. Soak up the sun and fresh clean air in the sprawling gardens and lawns, with picnics beneath the trees and winding hiking trails leading up into the mountains.
Worked up a thirst yet? Try some wine tasting at Groot Constantia Wine Estate!
What’s the next best thing about Level 1 Lockdown restrictions? More wine! With relaxed restrictions around alcohol purchase and consumption, South Africans can enjoy Cape Town’s famous wine estates again at their leisure. Use your City Pass to get a free tour and wine tasting at arguably one of our most world-renowned wine estates, Groot Constantia.
Finish off the day with a glass of bubbly on the bay with Waterfront Charters.
Make a toast to your Cape Town adventure with a glass of champagne in one of the city’s most beautiful settings. Sail into the sunset on the deck of the Esperance, with breathtaking views of the bay and Table Mountain as the African sun dips below the horizon. You can use your pass to end your adventure on a relaxed note for free.
These are just a few of the attractions you can enjoy with your City Pass, and you can cater your itinerary to suit your interests!
From historical landmarks to exhilarating adventures, wine tasting experiences to foodie delights, there’s something waiting for everyone in Cape Town.
