In this post, you'll find 6 free things to do in Cape Town! There are free activities in capital of South Africa which are a lot of fun.
Table of Contents
1. Get a view over the city
To get the best panoramic view over the city you should head to either Lion's Head or Table Mountain. Both offer great viewpoints that you can hike to and are definitely worth your time!
Because of the views of Lion’s Head, it is also one of the best photo spots in Cape Town.
2. Go to a free museum
You can go to certain museum in Cape Town for free on certain commemorative days. Iziko Museums of South Africa is the organization that runs the best museums in Cape Town. On their website you can see an overview of the free admission days for each of their museum.
3. Visit the Company's Garden
The Company's Garden is the oldest garden of South Africa. It was created in the 17th century by the Dutch East India Company with the purpose of cultivating fresh vegetables for both the settlement as wel as its ships that passed Cape Town. Today you can go here for free to enjoy the beautiful plants.
4. Enjoy free music at a market
Bay Harbour Market is the perfect place to go to for shopping arts, crafts, fashion and jewellery, and eating in a South African way. Best of all, you can enjoy free live music at the same time. The market is open every weekend (including Friday evenings). Check out the website of the market for more information on what's on when you visit.
5. Clifton Beach
There are so many beaches in Cape Town, it is very difficult to choose the one you want to go to while in Cape Town. To be fair, every beach is a great choice. I would recommend going to Clifton Beach for its beautiful white sand and the great water activities. Going to Clifton Beach is free!
6. Free walking tour
While in Cape Town you should definitely consider doing a free walking tour of this company. Want to learn more about the historic city center? Or about Bo-Kaap (a former township, now with brightly painted houses)? Or want to learn about apartheid? Then participate in one of their free daily tours.
