DON’T: Wine Tasting
You can’t have a wholesome experience of the Cape Town if you don’t pay a visit to its wine region. While most of the people opt for a wine tasting session, we would recommend you to do something unique by blending your own tipple. Have a personalized experience by going on a small group tour that is generally conducted by a member of the Momberg family. It is a 1.5-hour excursion that includes several interesting activities such as a cellar tour, an explanation of “How wine is made?”, blind tasting and freshly baked pootbrod. You allowed to bring home a complimentary bottle of wine.
DO: Seal Snorkelling
DON’T: Shark Cage Diving
Everyone is familiar with the famous cage diving that Cape Town offers its visitors. But if you want to have a more fantastic wildlife experience, we would recommend you to go for a much friendly trip to Duiker Island. It is a half-day excursion that makes you witness the 15000 playful and curious Cape Fur Seals and that too in the natural habitat. This would surely be one of those unforgettable experience you would cherish afterward. You can take a wholesome advantage if you know how to swim.
DON’T: Township Tour
We would suggest you not going on a typical township tour that has been repeated a million times. It won’t excite you as you would have thought. So to get a fascinating experience of the townships of Cape Town, go on a trip with a famous charity organization, Uthando. On this extremely interesting ride, you get to participate in some meaningful experiences rather than stoping on observing stops you do on the traditional tours. Get a chance to interact with the local community by taking an interest in the authentic projects related to different themes such as music, animal welfare, urban agriculture, education and many more. And the best part is you will get to see results of what inputs you have made in the form of donations in different development projects.
