With that being said, we thought it would be fitting to supply you with a list of fun, breathtakingly beautiful and adventurous things to do while visiting Cape Town. Here’s our top five must-do activities this festive season:
HAVE A GO AT SHARK DIVING
South Africa is known for having a large variety of sharks. All the more reason to go and explore the exceptional creatures in their natural habitats. For those real adventure junkies the best place to go for the true shark diving experience would be in Gansbaai. This area is known for hosting the biggest white shark viewings in the world. Hence, they have over eight tourism companies in the area that focus on shark diving.

ENJOY A ROMANTIC DINNER FOR TWO
After a busy day of sightseeing, why not sit back and relax with a glass of wine and good food? There are a number of exceptional restaurants at the V&A Waterfront, within walking distance from Shimansky.
Whether you are looking to enjoy cocktails at sunset or to dine on freshly caught fish with your loved one as the sun slowly dips into the horizon, the V&A Waterfront has an option for anyone. From five-star restaurants perched over the water, to relaxed dining overlooking the bustle of the V&A, there are well over a hundred establishments to dine at.
HOP ON A HELICOPTER
We all know that the view is just so much better from the top, especially in Cape Town. Witness the Western Cape in all its glory in a way you could never imagine. Well-known helicopter tours will give you the true Cape Town helicopter experience. Tours usually kick off by rising over the V&A Waterfront giving guests a beautiful view of Cape Town Stadium, Lion’s Head and Table Mountain. The helicopter usually then makes its way across the coastline, alongside Sea Point, Clifton and Camps Bay.
TAKE A ZIPLINE TOUR
The great thing about a zipline tour opening up in Cape Town is that you can be sipping on cocktails in Camps Bay one moment and be through a canyon at Constantia Nek the next. It’s a great way for you to experience a part of Cape Town that you’ve never seen before. The daring zipline route is one of the longest on the African continent being almost 2.3km in total. Also, be prepared to face slides that stretch as far as 500m in length. One thing is for sure, it’s not meant for the fainthearted.
