Cape Times: Escape Times – Sea Kayaking

While the Atlantic Ocean may be a bit chilly to spend extended amounts of time in without a wetsuit, spending a few hours just above the surface in a kayak is the perfect way to enjoy a sunset or sunrise.

Cape Times: Paragliding

Ask most people if they had one wish in life, what it would be and many would answer to be able to fly. And for

Cape Times: BaboonWalk

Baboons were present in the Cape Peninsula long before humans set foot on its turf. Unfortunately, due to increased urbanisation, their natural habitat is shrinking fast leading to increased confrontations between humans and these Chacma Baboons.
