School’s Out! Winter Holiday Activities in Cape Town


School holidays are around the corner and lucky for Cape Town’s kiddies, the city has plenty of activities on the calendar to keep them entertained and out of trouble all winter break!

Take them Toboggan-ing

Venue: Cool Runnings, Tygervalley

Whizz through the winter air at Africa’s only toboggan track at Cool Runnings. Ride and slide on the stainless steel track that snakes through Tygervalley’s landscape and become a master of the sled at speeds up to 40km per hour! Cool Runnings has extended their opening times from 09:00 – 18:00 every day during the school holidays, so book your tickets (R35 per ride or R250 day pass) and get toboggan-ing!


Cable Way Kidz Season

Venue: Table Mountain

It’s Kidz Season at the Cape Town Cable Way! Until the end of October, for every adult return ticket bought two kids under the age of 18 ride the cable car for free! To add to the fun, all children will be given a sweet treat and a treasure hunt at the top of Table Mountain.


Go Sightseeing around Cape Town

Venue: Various, Cape Town

Or see Cape Town from the top of a hop on, hop off City Sightseeing bus. The three-for-one kids special runs throughout the school holidays. So for every adult ticket bought, two children can take the tour for free.

Disney on Ice (8 – 12 July)

Venue: Grandwest Grand Arena, Goodwood

This fairy tale classic promises to mesmerise Cape Town’s kids and their parents alike this winter holiday! See Snow White, Sneezy, Dopey, Sleepy, Doc, Happy, Bashful and Grumpy in the flesh for only R75 per person. That’s just R15 more than a 3D movie ticket at the cinema!


At work? Why not let Rikkis help take the entertaining-the-kids load off of you? Book a taxi to get them to any of these Cape Town activities and events when you can’t.
