Long weekends in Cape Town are always abuzz with enjoyments and Easter is no ‘egg-ception’. These are the top Easter bunny-approved activities for your Cape Town self-catering stay during this long weekend.
Fabulous Fine Dining
Food is a fabulous way to make the most of any occasion and you’ll find some of the best ways to spoil yourself in Cape Town’s wonderful restaurants.
The President Hotel in Bantry Bay is hosting an Easter lunch on Sunday 21 April featuring salads, a traditional carvery and a humungous dessert selection showcasing chocolate of every description, and carrot cake of course.
In Camps Bay, The 41 will be putting on a 3-course spread which starts off with a platter for everyone to share followed by a yummy selection of mains and desserts. Some of the lip-smacking delights on offer here include traditional Cape Malay dishes, hot cross buns and traditional Russian hazelnut cake.
Winelands Family Fare
If you’d prefer something a little less formal, head out to sample the pastoral pleasures of Stellenbosch at Joostenberg Wine Estate. Here you can make yourself comfortable at the rustic tables of the Kraal, with its overhanging olive branches and wholesome eats. Think crusty rosemary bread, lamb-shank, pear and chocolate tart and Cape-style pickled fish.
Stellies Taproom is perfect for rambunctious children thanks to their large play area and picnic-style eats. Don’t miss the chance to sip on craft beer, nibble on locally-produced cheese and sample the other excellent farm-to-table fare on offer. Extra Easter nibbles include chocolate bread, cupcakes and brownies in both popular shades.
Hunting for Easter Treasure
No Easter is complete without an egg hunt of sorts and the Norval Foundation is hosting one with an artistic twist this long weekend. Children are invited to an egg decorating workshop as well as an Easter-egg hunt in their colourful and unique sculpture garden. To keep it fair, children aged between 4 and 6 are invited on Saturday 20 April, while those between 7 and 10 get their turn on Easter Sunday.
Cape Point vineyards follows suit on their lush lawns, except the Easter bunny will be there to help. While the children seek and devour, parents can put their feet up with a picnic hamper in the grounds or treat themselves to an elegant lunch at the onsite restaurant. There is a selection of picnic hampers designed especially for the little ones too.
It’s a Chocolate Rush
