Cape Town is ready to welcome business travellers with as much hospitality as it can muster right now. So, if you’re heading out this way for business soon, you can still make the most of your free time with these things to do in Cape Town that lend themselves to social distancing. 

1. Scenic Drives

You’ll find no shortages of places to take in the view during a trip to Cape Town. Chapman’s Peak is world-renowned as one of the prettiest roads to explore with its twisting route and elevated ocean views.


Victoria Road takes you past some of the city’s most luxurious homes and upmarket shops on the one side, and glorious vistas over Camps Bay beach on the other. You’ll also find the dramatic Twelve Apostles mountain range along this route.


Helshoogte Pass takes you to the tranquil winelands of Franschhoek through lush valleys and towering mountains. 

2. The Pipetrack Trail

If you’d like another look at the Twelve Apostles and Camps Bay, head out on the pipetrack trail. This undulating track offers blazing sunsets, beautiful trees, lots of photo ops, and plenty of places for a pitstop with a view.


The trail starts at the top of Kloof Nek at the cableway and winds its way past Bakoven. The experience is best shared with someone you’re already in close contact with every day. 

3. The Seapoint Promenade

A walk along the seafront is a wonderful way to clear your head before your next meeting. You’ll see the Atlantic at its mesmerising best and you can continue your reverie all the way to Bantry Bay.


The best place to start is at the Green Point Lighthouse and you’ll find the newly renovated pathway’s perfect for a solitary walk or even a jog all the way to the Sea Point Pools. 

4. Fine Wines

Groot Constantia and other wineries are open for business with restricted trading hours, so you can still stock up on your favourite vintages before you head back home. Although all the other winelands activities remain restricted, you’ll still be able to lap up the views and peaceful atmosphere while picking up your order.
