Have you noticed what’s missing from What You Could Get In Cape Town For $10 so far? Yup, the lack of cities in Africa.
So this week, I’m so excited to finally cover the first city in Africa as I got connected to Campbell and Alya from Stingy Nomads, who will share with us how we could spend our $10 in the second most-populous urban area in South Africa, Cape Town.
Are you as excited as I am to find out how far you could go with $10 in Cape Town? If so, let’s just check out! 😉
Cape Town: Heaven for Those Who Love Outdoor Activities!
Cape Town, South Africa is our home and most of the summer we spend here enjoying great weather and doing many outdoor activities e.g. surfing, hiking, kitesurfing.
There are many things to do in Cape Town for people with different interests, lifestyles and preferences. It’s one of the few big cities where you can do adventure activities within the city borders.
Cape Town is a real paradise for outdoor lovers every day we see hundreds of people cycling, running, surfing and it inspires you to be more active and try new activities and sports.
If you’re up to some water fun, don’t mind getting wet and spend a couple of hours in cold water then go to Big Bay area in Cape Town, rent a surf or paddle board and wetsuit (it’s a must-have when surfing in the cold water around Cape Town) and enjoy the waves.
Surfboard or SUP board + wetsuit rental ZAR120/US$10 for 2 hours. If cycling is your cup of tea rent a bike for a day and combine exploring Cape Town with hard exercising, there are plenty uphill in the city to conquer. Bicycle rental start at ZAR130/US$10 per day.
If all the things mentioned above are the activities that are too strenuous for your liking and you’d rather spend a day in a more relaxing way, go wine tasting around Cape Town; Constantia and Durbanville are just 15 minutes drive from the city center.
Depending on a farm and its pricing you for ZAR130/US$10 you can do the tasting at 3 different wine estates, at each place you get 3 to 5 different wines which mean for US$10 you can taste between 9 and 15 wines.
Another leisure activity is walk at V&A Waterfront, stop for a cup of coffee with dessert or a shake at one of the cozy coffee shops or bakeries, will cost you less than US$10. Drink it while enjoying the view on Table Mountain and great festive vibe of the area.
For animals lovers or travelers with children visiting Boulders Beach in Simons Town is a great option, spend a day on a beautiful white sand beach watching African penguins swimming and walking around. Entrance fee ZAR75/US$6 for adults and ZAR45/US$3,5 for children.
