Some people think of Cape Town as an expensive city but there are actually a lot of budget activities you can do. No need to break the bank with these 15 cool things to do in Cape Town for under R100!
1. Wine tasting:
There are so many gorgeous wine farms near Cape Town offering exceptional wine tastings for under R100! It is definitely a must do 👌
- Klein Roosboom - Wine tasting in a cave R95
- Bloemendal 360 - Incredible views R70
- Lanzerac - 5 Premium wines R80
- Vergelegen - Great value from R45 for a tasting ( stay to watch the runner ducks! )
- Haute Cabriere - Macaron & Wine pairing R90
2. Visit the penguins at boulders beach:
Head to Simonstown and spend the day learning about and watching the cute penguins do their thing. Take your beach stuff and relax and swim on the beach. R39 for South African citizens.
3. Go to Oudekraal for a beach day:
Pack your braai stuff and get your friends together for a day at the beach with the best views and the coldest water. Its only R36 for South African citizens to enter the gorgeous Sanparks Oudekraal picnic site where you can have a braai right by the beach.
4. Green point urban:
Go for a walk in the beautiful Green Point urban park with its stunning views! It's totally free so why not grab an ice cream on the way.
5. Watch a movie at the labia theatre:
The Labia theatre is not just a place to watch a movie. It has such a great vibe and makes the perfect place to go on a date. The drinks are also cheap so you can definitely have one in the courtyard before your movie. R70 per ticket but the vibe is unmatched!
6. Visit the Zeitz MOCAA museum:
Usually the museum is pretty expensive but if your are a South African then its free from 10-1pm every Wednesday.
7. Go swim at the Sea point pavilion:
Best to head there on a week day to avoid the crowds. If you feel like swimming but not in the ocean its a great and cheap place to do so at only R33 entry for adults for the day.
8. Watch a band mojo market :
The Mojo market always has something going on, from sports games to live music but I suggest buying a beer for vibes.
9. Hike up lions head:
The very best free hike in Cape Town! Only take good vibes with you and leave nothing. Just because its free doesn't mean you have the right to leave your garbage on the trails.
10. Drive Chapmans peak:
Do a little loop of southern Cape Town by heading out to Muizenberg and Kalk by and then returning for sunset vibes over Chapmans peak. R57 per car
11. Visit the gorgeous Cape point:
Cape Point entry will be R95 per person if you are a South African and there is so much to do and see. Go on a game drive and see baboons, ostriches, bontebok, eland and so much more. You can also hike, take the funicular or simply soak up the spectacular views.
12. V&A Harbour & seal cruise:
The city sightseeing or red boat cruise wont break the bank at R65 per person and its a really fun activity to ad to your day at the V&A Waterfront.
13. Walk around babylonstoren gardens:
A day out in nature with free walking tours and a lot to see will only cost you R80 at Babylonstoren. Take your camera because your will definitely want to capture the beauty of the gardens.
14. Play putt putt on the sea point promenade:
I dont think R36 is not too much for a bit of nostalgia! A game of putt putt wont set you back too much and it is definitely worth it for a fun day out where you get to feel like a kid again.
15. Do some strawberry picking:
I love this as a cute date idea. Put on your best summer outfit and for only R65 you can live out your farm fantasy by going strawberry picking!
