Boulders Beach and Penguin Colony near Simonstown is a great way to spend a sunny day in Cape Town.

You have opportunity to experience many outdoor activities in Western Cape- from hiking, abseiling, quad biking, horse riding, byicle and wine testing experience and so on, it is depend what you will decide.

Our kids love climbing Lions Head, and also enjoyed a boat trip from Simonstown to Seal Island in False Bay.
Spier wine estate is a hit - cheetahs to stroke, indigenous eagle and owl displays to watch and a meal in a treehouse!

We also have a theme park called Ratanga Junction which is wet and wild and perfect for older kids. Loads of beaches to choose from. Also be sure to drive down to Hermanus which has some very unique beaches, great atmosphere and if you're lucky... Whales!
Trust me you will not be short of options.

Do you mean northern hemisphere summer? Remember, it is beginning of winter here.It is normally rainy season and it can become rather cold (9-10 degrees Celsius).
Aquarium is a winner with kids, teens and adults -very suitable for rainy day. If you are lucky though and will catch some sun, you should definitely take an open top bus tour with special program for children. It will take you to most tourist attractions. You can also try horse riding on the Noordhoek beach.

I would do:
1. Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens - a showcase for what makes the Cape special
2. The castle (who doesn't like a castle?)
3. Table Mountain (queue to the cable car - kids will love it)
4. Drive Chapman's peak to Cape Point for great seaside views
5. Aquarium at the Waterfront - lots of curio shopping can be done around here too
6. Head east along the coast to one of the many seaside towns for warm beaches
