Day 1 - Cape Town


Start the trip off with a casual walk up Lion's Head. The chain route is fun if kids are happy/confident with it. To get slightly higher and different views, head over to the cableway for a short trip up Table Mountain. Pack a picnic and have it either on the mountain or in the Botanical Gardens. If its a summer Sunday, stay for the outdoor concert. Pop down to Da Vinci's pizza for some tasty thin base, oven fired pizzas.

Day 2 - Cape Town


After exploring the mountains, its time to get in the water. Head over Chappies to Simonstown where Paddler's will take you out on a two and a half kayak to Boulders Beach and the penguins. Kids should be around 10 or up (its height that matters). Stop in for lunch at Olympia on your way through to surfing lessons at Muizenberg beach. Wrap up the day back in Kalk Bay for some tasty fish and chips in the harbour.

Day 5 - Cape Town


For a bit of kid friendly history tour, the Robben Island trip is pretty good. Theres a boat ride and a bus tour involved as well as a pretty kid friendly discussion and tour by past prisoners. Maybe stop in the Waterfront for pancakes before or after. In the afternoon, check out Downhill Adventures offerings- perhaps a sandboarding trip? Or just hang out on the beach with a frisbee.
