I can’t wait to return to the summer in the Mother City.
I will be based in one of the charming cottages in Waterkant, the perfect base for exploring the ocean front, the city and the hinterlands.
Restaurants in Cape Town – and afield
I have a weakness for laid-back eateries and especially look forward to eat at some of my old favourites, like Chef’s Warehouse, Neighbourgoods Market and Beau Constantia but definitely plan on exploring new eateries, like Luke Dale Roberts’ The Shortmarket Club, and venturing further afield to enjoy Kobus van der Merwe’s cooking at Wolfgat and Babylonstoren.
Sights and going-ons in Cape Town
I already have planned some cultural expeditions, like a cooking tour in Bo-Kaap, and am contemplating joining one of James Fernie’s philanthropic cultural tours at Uthando SA as well as the Indaba Design Festival.
Guides to Cape Town
I have been to Cape Town eight or ten times already and know the city fairly well but I will take inspiration from other Cape Town lovers, like Francois Botha, who’s a Cape Town boy himself, at &Simple and Allan Torp at Bungalow5.
R & R in Cape Town
Most of all I just look forward to kicking back and enjoying the easy lifestyle, chilling along the sea promenade and at my favourite beaches: Clifton, Camps Bay and Llandudno…
I invite you to send me an email at walther (a) gmail.com if you have any suggestions for places which I definitely should experience!
