Free activities to do in Cape Town!

A relatively weak rand makes Cape Town an affordable place to visit, the city certainly provides value for money when it comes to accommodation and dining. Everyone would appreciate something for free, and with this statement, Cape Town is overflowing with many of these.

Mountain Hikes

Table Mountain National Park is a gorgeous natural resource that is the pride of the Cape Town. Although there are admission fees to some parts of the park, such as Boulders (home to a colony of African Penguins) and the Cape of Good Hope nature reserve, there’s no charge for hiking the myriad trails on Table Mountain, up Lion’s Head or along Signal Hill.

V&A Waterfront

This Mall attracts over 20 million visitors a year! There is a free entertainment stage where many shows take place. Follow a self-guided historical walk-tour by picking up a free map detailing the route at the visitor information centre on Dock Rd.


Looking down from the Pipe Track you’ll spy some of Cape Town’s most beautiful beaches. Separated from the bar and restaurant lined promenade by palm trees and a grassy bank, Camps Bay is a gorgeous sweep of soft sand.

With all of this in mind, Cape Town has many free fun activities to offer it’s visitors.
