Become a tourist in Cape Town FREE for your Birthday

I moved to Cape Town almost 6 years ago and I’ve made it my goal to see and do as much as I could in that time.

But so many of the main attractions in Cape Town can work out quite costly, especially for a large family like ours.

So, I started looking for things to do in Cape Town that were free to attend or relatively cheap enough for us to explore as a larger group.

This is when I first came across these amazing Free tickets which will allow you access to 3 of Cape Town’s top attractions and become a tourist in your town on your birthday.

💞Table mountain

💞The Two Oceans Aquarium

💞The big wheel at the V & A Waterfront

Table mountain
