Cape Town, South Africa
Divorced Dads like to travel differently with their
family. Our members like to mix in
a little Adventure with our Family time. Let SingleDad show you a variety of
ways to enjoy your Single Parent travel with our travel reviews. This month, we
review Cape Town, South Africa.
Cape Town, South
There’s plenty for kids to see and do in Cape
Town. First and foremost, you need to choose a destination that will keep your
tots entertained, and this is where Cape Town really comes into its own.
This coastal city boasts an impressive range of
attractions that are ideal for kids and adults alike. The only trouble is
knowing where to start! You’ll get to witness the majesty of Table Mountain,
see an abundance of wildlife, explore forests, tuck into alfresco picnics, test
your skills at a variety of sports, check out interactive museums and much
To make sure you get the very most from your
trip, it’s important to do some planning before you board flights to Cape Town. One highlight
that may make it onto your itinerary is Boulder’s Beach. Here, you can see a
colony of African penguins and, for a closer look; you can use the binoculars
that dot the walkway. Your children are bound to get a kick out of seeing these
waddling creatures in action.

Sticking to the nature theme, Butterfly World
is well worth a look. Here, you can see butterflies from Costa Rica, the
Philippines and elsewhere, along with free-roaming chickens, ducks and goats. Also, with more than 3,000 sea animals,
including sharks, turtles, fish and birds, the Two Oceans Aquarium is a
must-see. It’s open every day of the year and kids under the age of four get in
If your children are 12 or older, perhaps the
activity of shark diving will take your fancy. Many cage diving companies offer
deals all year round and breaching tours between May and September.
Another attraction that’s ideal for families is
Kenilworth Karting. This indoor go-karting course in the Claremont area of the
city has a 310-meter racetrack, as well as a junior track for tots. Meanwhile,
nearby you will find ten-pin bowling at Let’s Go Bowling. Both of these
activities offer bags of fun whatever the weather. For something a little
more educational, make your way to the Cape Town Science Center. Here, your
little ones can enjoy an interactive discovery land and get involved in a range
of fun experiments.
When you and your children simply want to chill
out, head to The Company’s Garden. Entry to this green oasis in the city centre
is free and the park offers plenty of space for youngsters to run around and
play. It is also the perfect spot for a picnic.
