With Taxify, Uber, MyCiti and bae’s car, the only reason most of us stay home over the weekend is because of money, right? It’s great to be doing the most but when things are expensive then the most you can do is netflix and chill! We get it! That’s why we put together a list 10 things to do in Cape Town for under R100!
1. Climb Lion’s Head When It’s A Full Moon:
Call up the squad, put on your takkies and take a ‘night out’ to the next level. Climb Lion’s Head while the sun is setting and get a view of the city like you’ve never seen it before. Get to the top right when the moon has reached its peak and you’ll be looking at an incredible sight. Lookup up ‘full moon hikes’ and join others who are doing the same as you! Get in a workout and meet new people!
2. Ride A Bicycle Along Sea Point Promenade:
Rent a bike and play tourist for the afternoon. Then rest on the sand and enjoy some me-time along the coast.
3. Go In Search Of Shipwrecks At Cape Point National Park:
Never been to Cape Point? Never gone in search of shipwrecks? Now you can tick both off your bucket list! Don’t forget to pack in some swimwear and some snacks because this will quickly turn into a full day adventure!
4. Drive Along Chapmans Peak Drive:
Did you know this is one of the world’s most scenic coastal roads! Don’t forget to take those Instagram snaps!

Nothing beats a good market on a sunny Saturday morning. Whether you want to spend some quality time with your partner, your friends or your family, a market is a great way to enjoy a different setting, vibe and food!
6. Grab Lunch At Eastern Food Bazaar:
If there’s one thing Cape Town knows how to do, it’s food! If you’ve never been to Eastern Food Bazaar then it’s time to try it out because you’ve been missing out big time! Imagine a food court specializing in regional Turkish, Indian and Chinese food. Whatever you’re in the mood for, you’ll find and you’ll be eating very last bite.
