It’s tourism month and we’re celebrating at Cape Point in the best way!
Call us biased but we can’t get enough of Ms Paula Bee’s engagement which took place just over a month ago!
The 14th Jive Cape Town Funny Festival is currently underway at the Baxter Theatre. You can expect plenty of laughs from both international and local acts. Our favourites include the talented Tats Nkonzo (Johannesburg), the hilarious Mooky Cornish (Canada) & the legendary Marc Lottering (cape Ton)! Not forgetting the MC for the show Alan Committee, he’ll keep you entertained & laughing the entire night for sure! Fair warning though, do NOT arrive late for the show.
A visit to Cape Point cannot be complete without taking your very own selfie. Whether it’s taken at the top of the lighthouse, along one of our trails or down at the Cape of Good Hope – we enjoy seeing all of your pictures! In order to celebrate National selfie Day, we thought we’d share a few of our recent favourites. Continue to post, tag and share your Cape Point selfie & who knows, we may repost your selfie next! Tag our handle @CapePointSA or #capepoint to ensure we see them!
Cape Point has a free audio tour that provides an all-encompassing sensory experience, while you’re exploring the beauty of this iconic site.
It’s #BestFriendsDay (8 June 2016) and we’re giving away an awesome prize to two lucky besties. Share a pic of you and your best friend(s) on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and you could win a selfie stick, a sweet treat, free entrance to Cape Point, a ride on the Flying Dutchman Funicular and free lunch at the Two Oceans Restaurant for you and your friend, plus a cool picture frame to place your winning pic in. Don’t forget the hashtag #CapePointBestie and tag us (@CapePointSA). Get snapping and send us your entries by Friday 10 June 2016. Here’s some inspiration to get you started:
The theme for World Environment Day (5 June 2016) is ‘Go Wild for Life’, taking a zero tolerance approach to the illegal wildlife trade. Wildlife trade is the sale or exchange of wild animals (dead or alive) or plants to be used for food, curios, medicinal ingredients, skins or even as trophies. Legal wildlife trade is regulated, however, illegal trade has grown tremendously and is now one of the major illegal money-making trades.
Keep the winter chills at bay with Cape Point’s mid-year specials (1 June to 31 July 2016) where two kids (aged 6 -16) ride free on the Flying Dutchman Funicular when an adult return ticket is bought for R58. Head up to the lighthouse and enjoy 360-degree land and sea views – if you’re lucky, you may even spot a whale or two. Pop into the Lighthouse 5 store (at the top funicular station) or the Logo Store (at the parking lot) and you’ll receive a free Cape Point placemat and coaster set with every purchase over R400.
