Hiking up Table Mountain


Please do not hike up Table Mountain on your own. Use one of the companies that offer to do the hike. Many companies offer the popular half-day hike which involves hiking up the mountain, but taking the well-known Rotair Cable Way to descend the mountain after hiking to the top. Full-day hikes allow for seeing more of the mountain and often involve hiking both up and down, avoiding the cable car.

Yoga - Cape Town
Yoga



If you are looking for a place to do yoga, I can recommend going to The Spinnery. Suzi is a spiritual master and doing yoga with her is the best. She has been doing and teaching yoga for more than 20 years.


Equipment:
If you do not have a mat with you, she will rent you one. So all you really need is your yoga clothing.

Moonlight walk on Lionshead - Cape Town
Moonlight walk on Lionshead

It is safe to do this, if you join the group. Please do not try and attempt it on your own! They have just increased the time that you can stay at the top of Lionshead. This is a great way to see the city from above, get fit at the same time as well as making fantastic new friends and maybe meeting some old acquintances.

Address: Bottom of lionshead

Swimming with the penquins

OK everyone offers swimming with the dolphins, but we can offer swimming with the penquins. In 1983 a pair of African penguins were spotted on Foxy Beach at Boulders and in 1985 they began to lay. Since then the colony has grown rapidly, increasing initially at about 60% a year. By 1997 there were 2350 adult birds. Boulders still remains the only place in the world where one can actually swim amongst the penguins as they have continued to invade more beaches. They are remarkably untroubled by people but one should avoid harassing them by getting too close or chasing them. Beware!! They have a vicious bite
Penguins are flightless, aquatic birds, which live in the southern oceans in climates as varied as Antarctica and the Galapagos Islands on the equator. There are seventeen species in all but the African Penguin is the only one to inhabit the African continent and its inshore islands. It used to be known as the Jackass Penguin
Scientific Facts:
Scientific Name: Spheniscus Demersus
Average Statistics: Weight - 2,1 To 3,7 kilograms (4.63 To 8.16 pounds)
Height - 50 cm (19.7 inches)

Equipment: swimming costume and snorkling gear will do the trick

Address: Simonstown
