I make no secret of the fact that I love my city, and most of our getaways are local staycations – opportunities to view and appreciate Cape Town from another angle.
So, when the Cape Town Pass approached me to be a tourist in my own city, it was an immediate “yes“.
In a nutshell, the pass allows you premium access to some of the city’s most-loved attractions, for a heavily discounted price. You can choose between two, three or five days and then pack as much into them as you choose. An example of pricing – the two-day pass is only R595.00 and allows you unlimited access to over 30 attractions, including Table Mountain Aerial Cableway, which is R255.00 alone. Summary: it’s a bargain.
You can choose to print out your pass, or download the app – we chose the latter – and then set off on the most perfect autumn day to experience Table Mountain. Other popular attractions including Seal Island Cruises, Kirstenbosch Gardens and Cape Point Nature Reserve – as well as free transport on MyCiti busses, which I thought was a very convenient extra.
While the Cape Town Pass is the obvious choice if you have out-of-town guests visiting, it’s also a great way to spend a weekend as a local – if, like me, you want to see more of the city you call home. As we head into off-peak season, and the tourists start slowly heading home – there’s hardly a more beautiful time of the year to get out and explore.
