Activities in December 2012 - Happy days are here again, tra lalala.

Yes it is the festive season and the long summer holiday for schools and many business's.

With the weather offering you the opportunity to enjoy various outdoor activities, it is wise to start packing the sunscreen when you leave the house.

Yes, it is also our windy season where winds can blow for days on end. What can you do about it? Nothing, so smile and bear it whilst searching for something else to do.

Get a local newspaper because Christmas markets, activities, events and specials abound.

Enquiries and Bookings


Visit one of the regular Cape Town Markets sprouting up all over the Peninsula.

It's a nice way to slow down and experience some local and home-made goodies. I know the produce is fresh and that the producers are proud of their products.

As you walk around the stalls, feel free to start talking to the stall owners. They are more often than not passionate about their offering and will provide you with great information on how to use it correctly.
