Whether you’re in the end of the month pinch, or wonderfully frugal, from tea and waffles, to crocodiles and tobogganing, you’re sure to find something fantastic to do in Cape Town for under R50.
Chart Farm, Klaassens Road, Wynberg Park, Wynberg Take an afternoon stroll through the fragrant rose garden at Chart Farm and select your favourite buds from the lines of rose bushes. Roses are R5 each.
Le Bonheur Crocodile Farm, Babylonstored Road, R45, Simondium At only R25 per person, taking a tour of Le Bonheur Crocodile Farm is a given when you’re looking for something awesome to do! The farm is between Paarl, Franschhoek, and Stellenbosch in Simondium, and promises an exciting day out, in a very beautiful park of Cape Town.
Toy Museum, Behind the Visitors Bureau in Market Street, Stellenbosch The Toy and Miniature Museum in Stellenbosch is a great place to take kids, especially if you have a big family. Entry is just R15 per adult and R5 per child. Look through the unimaginable volumes of beautiful and intriguing vintage play things.
Carl Cronje Drive, Tygervalley Fancy a bit of a rush? It’s only R40 for a toboggan ride on the 1.25km track at Cool Runnings. Sleds can fit two people, and you control the speed – with a maximum of 40kph.
64A Wale Street, Cape Town Enjoy something delicious at the Honest Chocolate headquarters in Wale Street. While you’d think that handmade chocolate would cost an arm and a leg, you can enjoy one of their delicious cakes, chocolates, or cups of coffee for under R50.
11 Atlantic Rd, Muizenberg Get a little culture at the poetry, story-telling, and spoken word evenings, and live mixed music nights for R20 at Alive Café.
14 Kloof Nek Rd, Cape Town Peter’s House is definitely worth a visit – not just for their great food, but for the nostalgia of the Beatrix Potter theme. Enjoy a bowl of mac ‘n’ cheese on Mondays for R30, quiz nights on Tuesdays for R40, and R25 waffles and maple syrup on weekends.
68 Orange Street, Gardens Catch a film for R45 at this quaint theatre that was once an Italian Embassy ballroom. Check their website for their niche film roster, and enjoy an exquisite night (or afternoon) out at this beautiful theatre. What are your favourite activities in Cape Town under R50?
