DISTRICT SIX – KANALA On the 11th February 1966 District Six was declared a white group area. Over 60,000 people were relocated. A way of life was destroyed.

He leads you into his inner sanctuary, takes you through our history and shows us where what is public and private meet. Uys was and still is a voice in the wilderness. He remains a master storyteller who can make as much fun of himself as he does with the others who get a lashing from his sharp tongue. The packed auditorium rose as one with a `Bravo Pieter!` and the standing ovation was thunderous. An artist who can still cause a major traffic jam outside the theatre!” Laetitia Pople – Die Burger (translated) Pieter-Dirk Uys presented the world premiere of his new memoir The Echo of a Noise at the National Arts Festival in 2015.

Atang Tshikare’s debut into sculpture is an exciting exploration of form and function. Atang Tshikare premiered his first bronze works early this month with Southern Guild at the annual Design Miami. The self-developed multidisciplinary artist’s work is a combination of geometric patterns and multiple mediums of sculptures based on his fantastical narratives. Both Le bone Lebone (they saw the light) and Maotwana Finyela form his debut into bronze sculpture. Hailing from Bloemfontein, Tshikare began his full-time art career in 2010, founding Zabalazaa Designs, an open platform for cocreation and innovation applying creative design-led thinking. He has worked on commissions for brands such as Adidas Originals, Nando’s and JWT Marketing. The curious sculptures, that also function as lights, form the central feature of Southern Guild’s installation at Design Miami. Le bone Lebone (they saw the light) is named after Tshikare’s tale of the same name, where a one-eyed giraffe-like creature (a source of great light) radiates a strong force within others, keeping them wandering in search of this light, a place of peace. Maotwana Finyela is an exotic animal with more legs than usual, which produce a melodic sound as they come into contact with each other. These sounds are said to be so soothing that they equate to the healing powers of stars, the ocean and hot springs. When ill, one searches for Maotwana Finyela, and stays in its company until healed. These imaginative, future-primal creatures are slowly growing into a greater family, so keep an eye out for more. Design Miami runs from 30 November – 4 December 2016 and this is the fourth time the collectible design gallery Southern Guild is exhibiting. 021 461 2856 l 10 Lewin Street, Woodstock Open Monday - Friday 10am - 5pm.

we’ve seen Hedwig and the Angry Inch has hit the Mother City! Staged at the new prestigious Gate69 Theatre on Bree Street, the genrebender, created by John Cameron Mitchell and Stephen Trask, tells the story of a fictional rock band, fronted by an East German transgender singer named Hedwig. As they tour the United States in a quest for love and glory, Hedwig regales the audience with tales of her escape from oppressive East Berlin, and her life since as a German emigrant in the States. Hello Cape Town grabs a cuppa with the stars: Paul du Toit (The Rocky Horror Show, Same Time Next Year, Binnelanders, Backstage) and Genna Galloway (Grease, Showboat, Noah of Cape Town) to discuss their roles in the performance.
Describe yourselves in 3 sentences? G: I am a passionate actress and I love teaching my students at the Waterfront Theatre School. I love Cape Town. I love wine and food - I’m totally a foodie! *giggles* P: I still have my appendix. I love food – especially when I have grown it myself. I like the outdoors - and the indoors – but that’s usually when I’m in a theatre. Paul, talk to us about Hedwig as a character and the challenges you personally face playing the role? I’ve been in love with the character Hedwig for about 16 years now. It was one of the CDs I’ve owned for many years and had played in isolation - only seeing the film later when it came out on circuit. When I watched the film, it was as if suddenly the puzzle pieces fit together. The performance blew me away. Honestly, it was never a dream of mine to play the part, because for me I might as well have dreamt to fly. I never thought It could be done. In playing Hedwig, many people comment on the sexuality and the drag side – I’ve been asked my sexual preference and whether drag is my choice – which to me doesn’t ‘make’ the character. I happen to be straight and dress in drag for the production. For me as an actor, I focus on the idiosyncrasies of the character. The internal. I try find Hedwig’s humanity. The external is just as mask like the mask we all wear. The fact he dresses the way he does on the outside is merely an external factor as part of his circumstance. We all have our ways we shift our external characteristics to suit situations. Hedwig is just deeply damaged goods – physically abused and then abandoned by his father and a loveless & emotionally abusive relationship with his mother. He spent his life looking for love. The truth is, the more you look, the harder it is to find, the more you push it away. It becomes a vicious circle of pain. We can see this in his relationship with his partner Yitzhak – there is this consistent emotional abuse. What is difficult about playing this piece is trying to hold an audience for 1.5 hours with this character who really only redeeming feature is acerbic wit. On the surface, Hedwig is a pretty offensive human being! She is anti-Semitic, she’s abusive, she mocks anyone with any kind of disability - be it mental or physical. I need to work within that framework and still have an audience that is sympathetic towards her by the end of the play. I also need to maintain the audience throughout, keep their attention – that’s the real challenge. Genna, Talk to us about Yitzhak? How did you get into being a male character and the relationship you have with Hedwig? I didn’t know it would be a role I’d be so passionate to play, not being as familiar as Paul was, I was learning as I was growing into Yitzhak, truly getting a feel throughout the rehearsal process. It only really clicked when I had my costume on - the wig, the make-up and yes, the fake penis! *laughs* It gave me a different centre of gravity. I was then able to characterise him and I could feel the transformation. I spent a lot of time observing men and how they sit and walk. They are a lot more ‘grounded’ in stance and seating than women are. In regards to accent, I worked with a friend of mine who is an accent coach and I also looked up actors on YouTube. Yitzhak as a character is fundamentally like Hedwig - both come from a lot of pain and synonymously is searching for love. He is

totally in love with Hedwig knowing that she will never reciprocate it in the way he would want, yet he stays in this toxic relationship in the hope she will change. The same vicious cycle Paul described. Hedwig was his escape but he is now emotionally and physically stuck – it is also true that Hedwig has somewhat kidnapped him by withholding his passport. When it comes down to it, the musical recognises the humanity of 2 damaged people searching for the same thing within each other, but needing to first find it is within themselves. What do you both understand by the term “Angry Inch”? G: Literally, Hedwig is a reluctant transgender and suffers botched sex-change, thus an ‘inch’ P: Metaphorically & metaphysically it says a lot about Hedwig in the juxtaposition of the 2 terms. Where he is angry, but it is an inch. A little bit. He isn’t man, he isn’t woman. He isn’t happy, he isn’t sad. He says a couple of times in the play, “I laugh, ‘coz I cry if I don’t” He is in a constant limbo of being almost something, but still an echo of what he was before. If not an actor/actress, what profession would choose to occupy? G: A Psychologist. Psychology has always been a passion of mine. P: I actually went for an aptitude test once in which the results that were ‘inconclusive’. They gave me this book and asked me to page through it to pick a career? I settled on a Life Saver because it sounded cool. The women simply responded that my academic results were promising and why not consider the Priesthood? The meeting ended shortly after with the results still being inconclusive… *laughs* Give us a fun fact people might not be aware of? G: I hate coriander and I can do handstand push ups. P: I’m a brand ambassador for Nic Harry Socks! - TLR Hello Cape Town December 2016 l

Hello Cape Town December 2016 l
what to see Rising up as a surreal backdrop to all of Cape Town is the extraordinary Table Mountain, and the state of the art Table Mountain Aerial Cableway will whisk you to the top in a picturesque 5-minute ride. Table Mountain is among the most popular attractions in the world, and it is no surprise that it holds the title as one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature. And while it’s impressive from pretty much anywhere in the City Bowl, it’s not until you soar to the top in an exhilarating ride on the cable car, with its rotating floor, that you can truly appreciate its stature, and the incredible city of Cape Town that bustles far below. Operating Hours: First car up 16 Sept to 30 Apr: 8:00 and 1 May to 15 Sept: 8:30. Last car down varies with sunset times but not before 17:00. Tel: 021 424 0015, www.tablemountain.net
There are few places in the Mother City as tranquil as Kirstenbosch Gardens, and at least once during your visit, when you stop to catch your breath and absorb the splendour of your surroundings, you’ll wonder how it’s possible that the bustling, buzzing city of Cape Town is just a stone’s throw away. These sprawling, landscaped gardens cover 36 hectares on the slopes of Table Mountain, and they blend in so effortlessly and majestically with the natural vegetation that you’d be forgiven for not realising their true scale. And when you consider how much there is to see and do in the gardens, from atmospheric sunset concerts and movie screenings, through to guided walks, popular restaurants, and an award-winning treetop walkway, it’s quite likely you’ll be planning your return visit before you’ve even left. Operating Hours: Sept-Mar (Summer) Mon-Sun: 08:00-19:00, Apr-Aug (Winter) Mon-Sun: 08:00-18:00, Conservatory Mon-Sun: 09:00 -17:00.

The southern tip of the African continent is the meeting place of two mighty and bountiful oceans, the Indian and the Atlantic. The Two Oceans Aquarium is ideally positioned to showcase the incredible diversity of marine life found in these two oceans. The Aquarium holds over 3000 living sea animals, including sharks, fishes, turtles and penguins can be seen in this spectacular underwater nature reserve. The two ocean aquarium has established itself as a key player in raising environmental awareness through its high-quality exhibits, conservation and education programmes. Operating Hours: The Aquarium is open every day (365 days a year, including all public holidays) from 09:30 until 18:00. Tel: 021 418 3823. www.aquarium.co.za
There are few things as exhilarating as standing at the base of a beautiful, 150 year old lighthouse, perched precariously high above the swirling Atlantic Ocean, and knowing that you’re at the most southwestern tip of Africa. Knowing that the next closest landmass, when you look across the icy seas, is Antarctica – more than 4,000 kilometres away. The panoramic views that spread out before you are breath-taking. Literally, because you’ve just earned them with a final push up the final flight of stairs from the upper funicular station. And once you’re there, it’s impossible not to spend a few silent minutes taking in the gravity of the dramatic location, before you instinctively reach for your camera. This is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts and offers hiking, surfing, angling, picnicking, beaching and cycling opportunities against the spectacular backdrop of the mountains and coastline of the most south western point in Africa. Cape Point offers visitors excellent viewing opportunities from the two lighthouses that adorn the point – one still functional, informative interpretive signage that traces the cultural and natural history of the Point. The lighthouse is accessible by foot or you can catch the Flying Dutchman
funicular to the top. P.S. Baboons in the parking lot are not a rare picture as one might think. Operating Hours: Winter: Apr – Sept: 07:00 - 17:00 Summer: Oct – March: 06:00 - 18:00 Visit capepoint.co.za for more.
After you have fallen in love with the penguins head to the secluded Boulders Beach and take a swim in the comparatively warm waters of the False Bay. This beach is ideal for kids as immense boulders shelter the cove from currents, wind and large waves - but please always take care. Also, don’t touch or feed the penguins. They might look cute and cuddly but their beaks are as sharp as razors and if they feel threatened they have no qualms about nipping the odd finger or nose. Operating Hours: Winter: Apr – Sept: 08:00 - 17:00. Summer: Oct – Nov: 08:00 - 18:30, Dec – Jan: 07:00 - 19:30, Feb – March: 08:00 - 18:30 Tel: 021 786 2329. www.sanparks.org
There are few places in South Africa that bear the weight and sheer historical importance of Robben Island, and a trip to the former prison serves as a jarring reminder of country’s troubled political past. At the same time, it reveals itself as a powerful symbol for the triumph of the human spirit, and offers fascinating insight into the reconciliation and resilience that played such a key role in the development of a new South Africa. From the moment you arrive at the humble island, just a short ferry ride from the V&A Waterfront, you’ll feel the impact of this World Heritage Site. A former inmate will guide you while on the island, and you’ll receive unparalleled insight into the significant role that each of the Robben Island’s inmates collectively played throughout apartheid. Operating Hours: Ferries depart at 9:00, 11:00, 13:00 and 15:00, weather permitting, from Nelson Mandela Gateway, at the V&A Waterfront, Tel: 021 413 4220/1, www.robben-island.org.za

Halfway between the bright lights of Cape Town and the statuesque mountains of the Western Cape, lies the hidden valley of Wellington, full of surprises and variety, heart and soul. The Berg river flows along the western border with two smaller streams, the Spruit and Kromme and the mighty Hawequas stands guard on the eastern side. The Bainskloof Pass, built by the famous Scot, Andrew Geddes Bain was (before Du Toitskloof Pass) the only gateway to the north. More French people settled here than anywhere else in the Cape and the valley was initially called Val du Charron – valley of the wagon-makers, the last outpost before travellers, pioneers and adventurers attempted the arduous journey into thehinterland with their oxen and theirwagons.

south african design by Genevieve Putter
For Gabrielle Kool launching a proudly South African swimwear label was a no-brainer for the Durban native, having grown up with sunkissed skin, salt-watered hair and sand between her toes. However, as the fashion graduate tells us, designing swimwear is a whole different school of fish to fashion design for many reasons. Now based in Cape Town with her atelier at Woodstock’s Masons Press, she tells us about her brand and shares her insight into choosing the right swimsuit, which doesn’t include looking online or in the pages of magazines. Tell us about Gabrielle Swimwear. Gabrielle Swimwear was developed from a passion for swimwear and all things related. After completing my National Diploma in Fashion from the Durban University of Technology and some extensive travelling, I returned home filled with inspiration and noticed there was a serious gap in the South African market regarding swimwear. Apart from your surf brands and cheap, poor quality Asian imports there was not much selection available. I started out sewing bikinis from my bedroom at home and slowly grew from there. How different is designing swimwear to clothing in general? Because it’s such a personal and intimate item, it’s all about the fit and comfort of a suit, which are the most important qualities to pay attention to in the design process. Because they are ‘smaller’ items, it’s also very important not to over design and I therefore focus on more of the finer, subtle details when designing.

What has been your most popular design? My most popular design would have to be my strelitzia print suits. This is a very recognisible, indigenous flower in South Africa and people have fallen in love with the print, as have I. It’s such a unique, interesting flower with amazing hues and really stands out from any other floral designs. What tips do you have for women wanting to find the perfect fitting swimsuit? I would say try them on. The only way to find your perfect fit is to try as many different styles as you can and not just the ones you think you want - don’t be fooled by instagram model pics! So many woman fall in love with a style they see online on flawless, edited models and then get bitterly disappointed when they see how it looks on them. You have to know your body type and choose the right style to compliment your best features and flatter the ones you feel less comfortable in. Test a few styles out when trying on and you might be surprised to find the one you thought you’d never wear looks and feels amazing on you. Your favourite swimwear trends for Summer 16/17? Definitely the return of the one piece! I’m so excited that more and more ladies of different ages and sizes are considering onepieces this season as they can be really sexy. I am especially loving the backless designs, as they are a simple and elegant design that most woman will feel beautiful and comfortable in.

On 11 February 1966 it was declared a white area under the Group Areas Act of 1950, and by 1982, the life of the community was over.

Hello Cape Town December 2016 l
wildlife all year around Welcome to Cape Town! South Africa’s melting pot of cultures, languages and bountiful festivities around every corner. Not only Cape Town home to Natural World Heritage Sites, the 7th Wonder of the World and one of the world’s most renowned botanical gardens, but a vibrant city with exquisite museums & galleries, phenomenal dining and coffee shops galore – let’s not forget ‘Truth Coffee’ voted best in the world. With all these opportunities around you, why not indulge in the many options? Take a truly ‘African safari’ or wet your feet shark diving? Alternatively, simply relax and tan on the soft sands of the famous Clifton beaches. With the skyward mountains, sun-kissed beaches of Camps bay, lush-green forests of Tokai & Newlands, Cape Town has something to anyone.
recommended wildlife must-dos
they are far less relaxed and tend to panic when people come near them, so rather keep your distance. While the local fishermen may complain about the mischievous bunch, they are a pleasure to watch as they dance in in the water, jouncing along the boat and will often hold a flipper held high to give you high-5. The seals are on the island all year around, however are most active and abundant in the heat of Cape Town’s summer. So beat the heat and climb on board one of Drumbeat Charters’ cruises. Not to forget, you can also spot these pups at Robben Island (Dutch for ‘seal island’) You are guaranteed to encounter pod of Cape Furs cavorting about.

African Penguins of Boulders beach Boulders Beach near Simon’s Town is arguably one of the most beautiful spots in Cape Town – not simply for the venerable granite boulders, crashing crystal-blue waves and the silky white sands, but it’s tiny tuxedoed locals!
Loving known as the ‘dogs of the sea’ for their sweet nature and playful frolicking, the Cape Fur Seals naturally occur on islands around SA and are found nowhere else in the world.
The African penguins (fondly known as jackass penguins, because of the braying sounds they make) established their colony 1983 and remains the only place in the world where one can get up-close to African penguins. Boulders itself consists of 3 pristine beaches, 1 penguin viewing area and 3 boardwalks.
Duiker island is home to over 6000 seals who love to sun themselves about on the rocks and audibly snort and grunt at one another, bobbing in the swell while keeping an eye out for fish to eat. They’re mostly brown, but shades vary from caramel to dark chocolate.
The boardwalks are placed as a measure to allow for viewing of these marvellous birds, whilst keeping them safe from poking fingers and irresponsible behaviour of people, so please be sure to stay on the boardwalks at all times within the viewing area.
The pups are born black and slowly grow lighter. These water-logged dogs are inquisitive and friendly when in the water, and will often ‘escort’ scuba divers and snorkelers – but a word of caution: on land
Please take care not to touch or feed the penguins – they may look cute and cuddly but their beaks are as razor sharp and if they feel threatened they have no qualms about nipping a finger or nose!
Duiker Island: Cape Fur Seals
l Hello Cape Town December 2016
You should be able to see the fancily dressed fellows throughout the year - but for a real treat, try to visit in January when the juvenile birds are moulting on the beach. Of course Beach space depends on the tides, so make sure to come at low tide and visit early in the morning or late in the afternoon. Note, there is limited parking, so arrive early during peak Summer months!

Great White Shark Cage Diving in Gaansbaai Looking for a heart-pumping adrenaline-spiking experience? Why not swim with the Atlantic’s most ferocious fish in the Great White Shark capital of the world Gansbaai? Walk, or rather, swim on the on the wild side with a life-changing experience you will most certainly never forget. Shark diving in can be divided into 2 main seasons: High season - May to October: this the best time to see Great White sharks as the visibility is good and shark activity escalates. Low season: January to March, however shark activity still continues and you have a good chance of spotting these majestic creatures. To avoid disappointment, we recommend that you call the company and ask about their current shark sighting and/or schedule a few days before. As a heads up, it’s a stunning boat ride out with the pros wherein 4/5 people jump in the cage at one time upon a sighting. Although the water temperature may shock you more than the shark, the adrenaline will warm you up quickly! Although nothing beats a genuine face-toface encounter with a Great White, there is also the option to either just tag along for the boat ride or see the phenomenal show from the upper deck of the boat – don’t forget those cameras!

Chacma baboons of Cape Of Good Hope If you have taken a road trip along the coastal road, you will have bound to bump into a troop or two of some furry primates lolling about foraging, playing or fussing over one another - A human society in miniature, the Chacma baboons in the Cape Of Good Hope Park are truly interesting and unique lot to observe. What makes this particular large collection of 6 troops unique is during the low tide they may be found roaming the beaches feeding on sand hoppers and shellfish - a very unusual behaviour for primates as their diet mainly consists of fruits, roots, bulbs, insects and scorpions. Watching this bunch can be very rewarding - but do so from a discreet distance. Please don’t get out of your car and leave it open, especially if you have food inside. Keep your windows mostly up and even your doors locked as these quick and agile baboons have been known to jump into cars and steal food, bags and any loose items! The dominant males have especially large teeth and a dangerous (and painful) bite. Do not feed these animals because this leads to problem behaviour from these highly intelligent primates. These primates are also notorious for their destructive behaviour and if conditioned to receive food may have to be eliminated for public safety. The Chacma baboon troops on the Cape peninsula are the only protected population of the species in the world due to human activity and interaction. Here are some do’s and don’ts: • DO keep a safe distance from baboons • DO move away slowly if a baboon approaches you • DO takes pictures from the safety of your vehicle or a safe distance • DO NOT display food when baboons are visible • DO NOT tease or agitate the baboons • DO NOT open the windows or doors of your car when baboons are present • DO NOT feed baboons. You will be fined.
In 2001 Cape Cheetah was established, which seeks to rescue and rehabilitate cheetahs and, ultimately, release them into the wild.
Who comes to South Africa and doesn’t go on a safari?
A literal bucket-list experience, we have two breath-taking game reserves we recommend that will not only give you the opportunity to see the exclusive Big-5, other wildlife and flora, but an experience you will take home with you and cherish forever:
Accommodation include premier, family or luxury chalets.
AQUILA PRIVATE GAME RESERVE Published in the “World’s 21 favourite things to do in Cape Town” Aquila Private Game Reserve is recognised as a major Cape Town tourist attraction. Aquila offers you a unique opportunity to experience the Big-5: lions, rhino, buffalo, elephants and leopard up close. Additional wildlife and flora is available to view on our once-in-a-lifetime game drives. The Reserve offers a wide variety of safaris and other activities on offer like 4 x 4 trails, fishing and themed weekend breakaways.
Big 5 Game Reserve less than two hours’ drive from the city.
There is a great emphasis placed on a wildlife conservation educational experience and doing so offers visitors a complimentary educational introduction to their cheetahs. Cheetahs are captive bred and strictly controlled in the interest of cheetah survival worldwide. Aside from the Big 5, Aquila is home to hippo, giraffe, buck and over 170 different species of bird!
INVERDOORN GAME RESERVE Inverdoorn is the largest private wildlife reserve in the area, providing sanctuary to an abundance of wildlife.
Iziba Safari Lodge offers complete relaxation in stylish accommodation.
The game reserve offers a premier safari experience including game drives, luxury accommodation and incredible insight into the rescue and rehabilitation of the cheetah. Inverdoorn is also home to the Big 5 - the elephant, lion, rhino, buffalo and the elusive leopard. The game is thriving and during your safari you may come across herds of eland, gemsbok and zebra, or hippos wallowing in the dam. The rhinos, with their horns intact, are a distinct highlight, combined with the magic of walking with giraffes and watching the cheetah run. This beautiful, big cat is the heart and soul of Inverdoorn.

FREQUENTLY-ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT BUYING PROPERTY IN SOUTH AFRICA Are there any restrictions on ownership of property by non-residents? There are certain limitations and restrictions, but on the whole, non-residents can own property in South Africa. There are borrowing restrictions on non-resident purchasers wishing to borrow locally to fund the purchase. If I buy property in South Africa as a non-resident and sell it again in a few years’ time, can I repatriate the proceeds of the sale? Yes, provided you keep a careful record of the off-shore source of the funds and meet all conditions set by our exchange control authorities. Am I assured that all aspects of South African property are in order when I buy? No, in South Africa, generally, property is sold “voetstoots:”, as it stands, and the buyer must investigate all aspects of the property with care. Your local attorney can assist you in carrying out this due diligence investigation. For example, check the title conditions, the use restrictions and the physical condition of the building before you buy. What if I want to make the offer now and do this investigation later, when I know I am not wasting my time and money on this work? Simply make the agreement conditional on a thorough investigation by adding the following clause: “This agreement is conditional on the buyer’s written confirmation of the successful outcome of a due diligence investigation conducted on all aspects of the property within 10 (ten) days of the signature of the agreement by both parties”. That will give you time to do your investigation and seek any help you need to get this done. However, note the deadline to avoid the deal lapsing. Are all agreements standard-form documents? No, agreements can be drafted to protect one or other party and it is a good idea to take advice from an attorney protecting only your interests. Can I bring the purchase price to South Africa onIy once I become the registered owner? No, the agreement of sale (sometimes called the “offer to purchase”) will provide the dates by which the deposit, costs of transfer and balance of purchase price must be paid or guaranteed. These dates are important in your planning. What are the hidden costs? The agreement must provide for this, but usually the seller pays the broker’s commission whereas the buyer pays the costs of registration of transfer of ownership. These costs can be estimated accurately in advance. We look forward to helping you with your local property purchase.

Facts about sunscreens that travellers should know
than those people who have a continuous lifetime exposure as they are more likely to develop squamous cell Carcinoma.
Ultraviolet radiation consists of 3 wavebands:
Melanoma numbers are growing more rapidly than any other cancer in the UK, USA and Australia and are doubling every one or two decades.
- UVC 100 - 280nm which is blocked by the Ozone layer - UVB 280 - 320nm and - UVA 320 - 400NM
On December 3, 1967 the world’s first human heart transplant was performed at the renowned Groote Schuur Hospital in Cape Town. The operation was considered a success and a medical milestone. The man who performed this feat of pioneering surgery and led the world into an era of sophisticated medical advances was Christiaan Barnard, the surgeon who dared. Today The Heart of Cape Town Museum honours the skill and wisdom of the heart transplant team, the courage of the recipient, the generosity of the donor’s father and the memory of the young donor herself. Experience the drama of that night in fully restored operating theatres where the surgery took place. A fully guided 2 hour tour describes the electrifying events with the help of life-sized silicone models and replicas of important scenes. Guided tours begin at 09:00, 11:00, 13:00 and 15:00 (17:00 tours by appointment only)

Hello Cape Town December 2016
According to a Survey that was conducted in the UK on 1500 female travellers, it was revealed that 22% would not use sunscreen and provided the following reasons: They are of opinion that they do not burn; Sunscreen is too expensive; The sunscreen does not work. Based on the above it is important that the emphasis should be placed on the importance of daily Solar Ultraviolet Radiation [DUVR]. Those people who have intermittent DUVR are more likely to develop basal cell Cancer or skin malignant melanoma
The Sun Protection Factor (SPF) concept The sun protection factor [SPF]is a figure calculated by the amount of Ultra Violet Radiation [UVR] required to cause sunburn on the protected skin with sunscreen applied relative to the amount of UVR required to cause sunburn on the unprotected skin (without sun screen). SPF is not related to time of sun exposure but to amount and intensity which varies from time of day and latitude in the world where sun exposure is occurring. Logically a higher SPF provides more sunburn protection and for a greater period of time. It also protects against UVB radiation. UVA rays penetrate deeper and are associated with aging and skin cancers. UVA protection should be at least 1/3 of the SPF and is measured by a star rating system. The ideal product would have SPF 30 plus a 4-5 star rating. Most people only apply half of what is needed. Application guide: • It should be 2mg/cm2 • Two tablespoons for an average person should be applied 20 minutes prior to exposure and be reapplied every few hours or after swimming, even if it is stated to be waterproof. • This equates to slightly more than half a teaspoon to each of the head and neck, right arm and left arm. Use slightly more than a teaspoon on each of the Chest and Tummy, the Back as well as the Left and Right leg! People should still only expose their skin to as much sun as they would without protection. Products that are presently endorsed but don’t provide optimal UVA protection are to be reformulated by this date or forfeit CANSA endorsement. Source: Netcare Travel Clinic. www.travelclinic.co.za
