5 Fabulous Things to do in Cape Town this Easter


Easter is around the corner and that means that the Easter Bunny is slowly making his trek to the Mother City to start hiding chocolate eggs on our glorious Table Mountain.  Come and find them, and while you’re at it why not join in some of the below fabulous Easter activities around the tip of Africa.

Table Mountain Easter Egg Hunt in the Clouds

Track the paw prints of the Easter Bunny when the Table Mountain Cableway hosts a delicious Easter egg hunt on Easter Sunday 21 April 2019.  The hunt for chocolate goodies starts at the Lower and Upper Cable Stations from 10am to 2pm with the Easter Bunny and his magical friends.

Face painting, puppetry, juggling, magic tricks and more, on 19, 20 and 22 April from 10am to 2pm are all part of the Easter celebrations on the mountain top this year.  The Cableway operates weather permitting, so if it is too windy for Big Ears to make his way up on Sunday, the hunt will move to Monday so you don’t miss out on your Easter treats.  Pre-book your tickets online here.


Root44 Market

This perfect all-weather setting in Stellenbosch is all about good food, delicious drinks and groovy live tunes. 

Open every Saturday and Sunday in a Downings marquee, surrounded by gorgeous vineyards, this Easter you can also enjoy the live performances of Professors on 20 April, Ceekay and Jesse Jordan on the Sunday the 21st.
