Sport and culture do mix – especially in Cape Town

Cape Town is fast becoming a hub for cutting edge art and creativity. Art fairs, design festivals and leading art galleries are all setting the scene for the Mother City’s growing reputation as a creative capital.

If you time it right, you’ll be able to experience the First Thursday phenomenon, when art galleries, shops and restaurants in the city centre stay open until late on the first Thursday of every month. That’s an ideal way of dipping your eyes into the growing art scene.

But you’ll still be able to indulge your culture vulture if you only have a weekend to spare. From Woodstock’s street art tours to national collections at the Iziko National Gallery and art classes in between, you’ll find what you need to absorb the incredible mix of artistic talent that exists at the tip of Africa.

Sport-lovers, don’t despair, there’s plenty for you to do too.

The Sea Point promenade is a popular place for an early morning run or cycle. Fill your lungs with fresh sea air as dawn breaks, with the majestic coastline opening up ahead of you. You’ll also find great restaurants along the way waiting to serve your carb cravings at the end of the route.

Cyclists and trail runners can discover gorgeous pathways on the mountain or through forests. And no trip to Cape Town is complete without a hike up Lion’s Head. The 1.5 hour hike gives you 360˚ panoramic views for as far as the eye can see.

The Mother City is also perfect for a golfing getaway. From two-day golf and safari packages with Ozzie’s Golf Guides, to perfectly manicured greens at Atlantic Beach and Milnerton Golf Clubs, you’ll be able to work on your handicap in gorgeous surroundings.

And Durbanville Hills Wine Estates’ biltong and wine pairing forms an ideal 19th hole once the nine-irons have done their job for the day.

Whether you’re into food or family; arts or adventure; culture or creativity; romance or retail therapy; gay-friendly breaks or golfing getaways, there’s something for everyone in Cape Town any weekend. Wake up to a weekend of everything you love. After all, it’s the best way to beat the Monday blues.
