Activities in Cape Town

If you are serious about your outdoor sports/activities, plan on staying a long time indeed in Cape Town – there is enough to keep you occupied for weeks, if not months. Infrastructure for outdoor sports is excellent, and most visitors to Cape Town head towards one of the many mountains trails/beaches around the city immediately upon arrival.

Bird watching is guaranteed to offer days of endless discovery even to the novice – the peninsula's biodiversity includes nearly four hundred different species of bird. Lion's Head, Kirstenbosch Gardens and the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve, Kommetjie and Hout Bay are favoured haunts of the feathered creatures. The World of Birds, Valley Rd, Hout Bay offers guided outings with knowledgeable guides.

The Milnerton golf course, located between a lagoon and the Table Bay boasts unparalleled views of Table Mountain.

Kite-flying uses the windpower of the Cape southeaster. Power kite flying involves harnessing yourself to big, powerful kites while sitting on buggies and skis and is fast becoming a rage.

Rollerblading is especially popular along the promenade that runs from Mouille Point to Sea Point. Paragliding spots include Lion's Head, while Sailing can be experienced on any of the cruises that leave from the Waterfront. If you fancy a really good look at some of the shipwrecks that the Cape is notorious with sailors for, try scuba-diving in the clear Cape waters. There are several operators offering rock-climbing courses that teach you to master scaling the rockface of Table Mountain.
