PETE TONG ALL GONE RHINO Coming to South Africa to perform in Ballito and Cape Town, British DJ Pete Tong took the time to visit Inverdoorn Game Reserve and Iziba Safari Lodge. Personal encounters with a tame cheetah and new baby rhinos, Bundu and Livinia, familiarised him with the reserve’s conservation efforts RhinoProtect and Western Cape Cheetah Conservation and Tong is eager to join the fight to save endangered wildlife. Celebrities are often glimpsed, as they get in touch with nature at Inverdoorn. Coldplay shot part of their music video for the song Paradise at the reserve. Tokio Hotel and Sean Kingston also visited and The Wailers performed in Cape Town in support of RhinoProtect. Esteemed actors Rutger Hauer and Ingrid Chauvin are amongst other celebrated guests who were touched by the animal interactions and the initiatives that propel the reserve. Inverdoorn has become a conservation stronghold – this past year saw them provide a home to the baby rhinos who were orphaned after their mothers fell victim to poachers. Elephants were re-introduced to the Karoo after being relocated to Inverdoorn. Raised in captivity they are now free-roaming and complete the reserve as a big five safari destination. The involvement of key figures such as Pete Tong could do much to help Inverdoorn elevate awareness about South Africa’s natural heritage and the dangers it must combat.

Info.

StreetSmart South Africa raises funds, for initiatives and programmes that support the greater process of social normalisation of street children, in partnership with restaurants. Participating restaurants display a StreetSmart card on the table informing patrons that a voluntary R5.00 donation will be added to their bill. They will have the option to give more than R5.00 (or not give at all). This donation is registered separately in the restaurant till and StreetSmart collects the funds. Diners should see their donation reflected on their restaurant bill. Every cent raised in StreetSmart restaurants goes to vulnerable and marginalised children programmes. People supporting StreetSmart restaurants will be consciously contributing to the betterment of street children. StreetSmart provides diners an opportunity to give responsibly and the more restaurants that participate, the more children are helped.

18 - 19

Cape Town

StreetSmart’s goal is to be part of the process of social normalisation, and to encourage the public not to give money into the hands of a child, as this keeps them on the streets. In essence, eating and donating at a StreetSmart restaurant is the responsible way to help a street child. Every cent donated in affiliated restaurants by diners, goes towards social and educational upliftment projects for street children.

Hello Cape Town


KIRSTENBOSCH, THE MOST BEAUTIFUL GARDEN IN AFRICA K

irstenbosch National Botanical Garden lives up to its reputation as the most beautiful garden in Africa, and is one of the great botanic gardens of the world. Few gardens come close to the sheer magnificence of its setting against the eastern slopes of Cape Town’s Table Mountain. The rocky cliffs and forest clad slopes form a perfect backdrop for the rolling green lawns and colour-filled flower beds. And the Garden merges seamlessly with the natural fynbos and forest of the mountain. There is something for everyone at Kirstenbosch. Plant seekers, bird watchers, walkers, hikers, picnickers, and those looking for peace and quiet or a delicious meal in beautiful surroundings.

Plant seekers will discover new and interesting plants among the thousands of species growing and flowering at Kirstenbosch. At this time of the year the tall yellow spikes of the Marsh Butterfly Lily (Wachendorfia thyrsiflora) are in full flower, as well as the pinks and oranges of the Watsonias, and the cool blues of the Aristeas. Some of our trees are sporting colourful canopies, such as the scarlet flowers of the Coral Trees (Erythrina) and the brilliant coppery red new growth on the African Mahoganies (Khaya anthotheca). A stroll along the Fynbos Walk will take in the colourful Pincushions (Leucospermum), Sugarbushes (Protea), Heaths (Erica) and other Fynbos shrubs from the mountains and valleys of the Western Cape. For a feast of weird and wonderful desert plants, don’t miss the glasshouse which is packed full of them, including dwarf succulents such as the Stone Plants (Lithops), the weird Welwitschia from the Namib, and the world’s largest succulent, the Babobab (Adansonia digitata). Bird watchers will have plenty to see and hear at Kirstenbosch. The Garden is a dog-free zone and borders on a natural area, so birds are ever present and remarkably unafraid .A sighting of a colourful Sunbird is a sure thing. Keep a look out for the long-tailed Sugarbird, endemic to this region, and a Spotted Eagle Owl or two – they are nesting near the sun shelters overlooking the Cycad Amphitheatre. A handy pocket guide to the birdlife of Kirstenbosch is available at the

Botanical Society Bookshops at Gates 1 and 2. Walkers and hikers are spoiled for choice at Kirstenbosch. Get the Walks and Trails brochure from the Ticket Office and choose the trail to suit your time and level of fitness. Hikers can also climb Table Mountain from Kirstenbosch, either via Skeleton Gorge or Nursery Gorge to Maclear’s Beacon, but remember to wear the correct gear, bring water and a good map and don’t leave too late in the day. Kirstenbosch offers breakfast, lunch and tea, coffee and snacks at three eateries and the Garden is rated as one of the world’s best picnic spots. Enjoy your meal inside, on the deck or order a picnic hamper or your lunch to go and eat in the Garden. Kirstenbosch is a ‘no bins garden’, to discourage litter-feeding vermin like rats, so please take the remains of your picnic home with you and dispose of it responsibly. Kirstenbosch is open every day from 08h00 to 19h00 during summer. Entry fee is R45 for Adults, R25 for South African students (with student card), R10 for children 6-17 years and children under 6 are free. Free guided walks are offered Monday to Saturday at 10 am and 2 pm – meet at the Information Desk in the Visitors’ Centre (normal garden entry fee applies). The not-so-fit can take tour the Garden in a shuttle car, leaving from the Visitors’ Centre on the hour from 9 am to 3 pm – buy your ticket at the Ticket Office, additional to normal garden entry fee. Dogs are not allowed in the Garden. All visitor facilities are wheelchair friendly, but Kirstenbosch Botanic Garden is set on a very steep gradient and not all areas of the garden are accessible to wheelchairs. Kirstenbosch is in Rhodes Drive, Newlands, about 13 km from the city centre and is signposted on all major roads. If you can’t get to Kirstenbosch by car, hop on the CitySightseeing bus, the mini peninsula tour stops at the Garden 6 times a day, 7 days a week.

NELSON MANDELA LEGACY EXHIBITION this city is governed: the Opportunity City; the Safe City; the Caring City; the Inclusive City; and the Well-Run City.” She said her idea to celebrate Mandela’s legacy and his relationship with Cape Town came about last year when the former President was hospitalised. “I wanted to celebrate Madiba during his lifetime. I wanted to let the people come together to celebrate him while he is still with us and draw on his example of leadership to chart our way into the future,” she said. The Cape Town Honours Nelson Mandela programme is a special Mayoral project formed to pay tribute to the country's first democratically-elected president; to expose a new generation to his legacy; and to engage Cape Town residents in developing a new moral code for governance in the city. It has the blessing of the Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory. The Mayor of Cape Town, Alderman Patricia de Lille, encouraged Capetonians to apply Mandela’s values in everything they do: strength, resilience, justice, dignity and respect. “I want Capetonians to engage on how we reinforce his values in the pillars upon which

She declared 2013 as the year in which the mother city would celebrate Nelson Mandela and reiterated the necessity of passing his story about the sacrifices he made for South Africa to be a democracy on to the younger generation.“We know his history with our great city,” she said. “It was here that he was imprisoned for so many years by the Apartheid regime. It was here that he ushered in a new legal framework of human rights and dignity from the first democratic parliament. “When Mandela was awarded the Freedom of the City in 1997, he said: “It was the people of Cape Town who welcomed me on my first day of freedom….I am proud to be associated with citizens who are uniting at last to build a better life

for all who live in Cape Town.” “With these images and multimedia displays, we want our residents to come together and absorb Madiba’s legacy and so create the framework for engagement.” The multimedia exhibition showcases Mandela’s relationship with Cape Town, and contains photographs by Benny Gool and AdilBradlow. The exhibition is a multimedia one, comprising video segments of key events in Mandela’s life and more than 200 photographs. The giant artwork on the Civic Centre was conceived by Abie Collins and Alberic Vollmer of Dreamfuel Media, and drawn by LinseyLevendall. It was drawn on A3-sized paper before a highdefinition scan was produced to upscale it and cut it into 660 separate pieces for separate windows. A team of abseilers took four days to complete the task of putting it into place. The Nelson Mandela Legacy Exhibition is located at the Concourse Level of the Civic Centre and is open daily 10:00- 18:00. The Cape Town Civic Centre is located in Hertzog Boulevard in central Cape Town, and residents and visitors are encouraged to use MyCiTi to get there.

SUNSET BOULEVARD Based on the Academy Award Winning film directed and co-written by Billy Wilder, SUNSET BOULEVARD is a story about Norma Desmond, a faded star of the early years of filmmaking. When talkies pushed silent films and their stars out of the limelight, Norma locked herself into her decaying mansion on the fabled Los Angeles boulevard with her memories, an ex-husband and a chimp as her only companions. Twenty years later, when disillusioned screenwriter Joe Gillis stumbles within her reach, Norma sees in him an opportunity to make her “return” to the big screen. SUNSET BOULEVARD has seen some of the biggest stage and film stars take the leading roles, including Glenn Close (who is tipped to reprise her stage role in the upcoming film), the great Patti LuPone, Petula Clark, Elaine Page, Diahann Carroll, William Holden, Hugh Jackman, and Michael Ball. Including the songs The Greatest Star of All, Girl Meets Boy, New Ways to Dream, This Time Next Year, Sunset Boulevard and As If We Never Said Goodbye.

BOULDERS BEACH

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 www.sanparks.org Tel: 021 786 2329.

21 Hello Cape Town


WILDLIFE ALL YEAR OSTRICH FARMING

History reveals that ostrich chicks were traded by the original Khoi inhabitants with the Dutch Settlers in 1652 and exported from Cape Town to Batavia (now Indonesia) in 1656. There were also exports to India and the Emperor of Japan in 1658. The first documented ostrich farm was established in the centre of Cape Town in 1679.

reach the right breeding age, which is between the ages of 8 to 12 years depending on their size. Duiker Island is not a breeding colony as the sea can get very rough and the pups get swept off. The island is most densely populated from January through March due to the seals moulting. During this period they do not go off in search of food but rely on fats they have stored in their blubber.

Lion (Pantheraleo): The lion is a large carnivorous feline of Africa and northwest India, having a short, tawny coat, a tufted tail, and, in the male, a heavy mane around the neck and shoulders. A lion may attack without provocation, and is considered by many to be the best of the Big Five.

The ostrich is the world’s largest living bird, averaging 2m (6.5ft) in height and weighing up to 156kg (344lb).

BIG 5 SAFARI SHARK CAGE DIVING

Great white sharks are the apex predators of our oceans and Cape Town is one of the shark cage diving capitals of the world. Sharks are iconic and magnificent creatures. Experience a great white shark up close and personal with a shark diving or shark viewing tour (you don’t have to get in the cage!) and you do not need a scuba diving certificate to shark cage dive. Great White Shark, Cage Diving takes place from April to September in False Bay (departs from Simon’s Town) and all year round from Gansbaai (2 hours from Cape Town).

The phrase Big Five game was coined by white hunters and refers to the five most difficult animals in Africa to hunt on foot. The collection consists of the lion, African elephant, Cape buffalo, leopard, and rhinoceros. African Big Five Game Species: African bush elephant (Loxodontaafricana): The African elephant is a very large herbivore having thick, almost hairless skin, a long, flexible, prehensile trunk, upper incisors forming long curved tusks of ivory, and large, fan-shaped ears. There are two distinct species of African elephant: African forest elephant (Loxodontacyclotis) and the African bush elephant (Loxodontaafricana). Black rhinoceros (Dicerosbicornis):The black rhinoceros is a large, thick-skinned herbivore having one or two upright horns on the nasal bridge. Rhinoceros may refer to either black or white rhinoceros. African cape buffalo (Synceruscaffer): The African

CAPE FUR SEAL

Situated only 8 nautical miles (about 16km) from Simon’s Town, Seal Island is home to 75,000 Cape Fur Seals, 24 different bird species and the hunting ground of the Great White Shark. All year round we often encounter Dolphins, Humpback whales and Brydes whales. From July to November the Southern Right whales are plentiful in the bay and you can be assured of a sighting. During the winter months the Great White Sharks are extremely active around the island and we enjoy many sightings and often witness natural predations. The main breeding season for the Cape Fur Seal is November and December when almost 20 000 pups are born. The majority of the seals on Duiker Island, out of Hout Bay Harbour, are males waiting out their time until they

or cape buffalo is a large horned bovid. Buffalo are sometimes reported to kill more people in Africa than any other animal, although the same claim is also made of hippos and crocodiles. It is considered the most dangerous of the Big Five, reportedly causing the most hunter deaths, with wounded animals reported to ambush and attack pursuers.

Lions habituate the savanna where tall grasses, shrubs and bushes obscure and provide them cover and camouflage. This thick undergrowth is commonly referred to as jess. As lions are ambush hunters, they use this natural cover to stalk close as possible before making a final charge to catch their prey. Lions do not generally avoid confrontation, but will usually face the challenger. Lions are unpredictable and may charge when sufficiently annoyed or confronted by danger. Leopard (Pantherapardus): The leopard is a large, carnivorous feline having either tawny fur with dark rosette-like markings or black fur. They are wary of humans and will take flight in the face of danger. The leopard is solitary by nature, and is most active between sunset and sunrise, although it may hunt during the day in some areas. Leopards can be found in the savanna grasslands, brush land and forested areas in Africa. The male leopard is less than half the size of a male lion. The leopard is the smallest of the big cats, and rarely exceeds 200 lb (91 kg). A visit to a South African reserve will, most likely, allow seeing not only the big 5 but other habitants of the African bush. Although the stock will be different between various reserves you’ll be able to watch: Giraffes, Elands, Springbok, Hippopotamus and Zebras.


ROUND CAPE PENINSULA BABOONS

The Baboon Matters Trust comprises a handful of dedicated volunteers who are at the forefront of baboon conservation in South Africa. The goals of the trust include raising awareness for the plight of baboons as well as education and training so that sustainable solutions can be found for areas of conflict between man and baboon. On a practical level the trust makes provision for the rescue and care of injured or sick baboons, and aims to support rehabilitation centres that focus their attention on baboons. Cape Species: The Chacma Baboon (Papioursinus), also known as the Cape Baboon, is, like all other baboons, from the Old World monkey family. With a body length of up to 115 cm and a weight from 15 to 31 kg, it is among the largest and heaviest baboon species. The Chacma is generally dark brown to gray in color, with a patch of rough hair on the nape of its neck. Unlike the northern baboon species (the Guinea, Hamadryas, and Olive Baboons), Chacma males do not have a mane. Perhaps the most distinctive feature of this baboon is its long, downward sloping face. Males can have canine teeth as long as 2 inches (longer than a lion’s canine teeth). Baboons are sexually dimorphic, males being considerably larger than females. The Chacma Baboon is found in southern Africa, ranging from South Africa north to Angola, Zambia, and Mozambique. Size and color vary within that range. Chacmas usually live in social groups composed of multiple adult males, adult females, and their offspring. Occasionally, however, very small groups form that include only a single adult male and several adult females. Chacma troops are characterized by a dominance hierarchy. Female ranking within the troop is inherited through the mother and remains quite fixed, while male ranking is tenuous and changes often. Chacmas are unusual among baboons in that neither males nor females form strong relationships with members of the same sex. Instead, the strongest social bonds are often between unrelated adult males and females. (Wikipedia)

BOULDERS BEACH PENGUINS

A visit to the famous Boulders Beach penguins should be part of every Cape Town itinerary. The penguins from this growing colony allow for close encounters with these famous sea birds - and most tourists fall helplessly in love with them. The story of the African penguins at Boulders Beach is one of remarkable urban colonization, but the species as a whole faces many threats and these aquatic flightless birds are listed as endangered. The story of the penguin colony in Cape Town started in 1983 when a pair was spotted on Foxy Beach at Boulders. Since then the colony has grown rapidly and now totals about 3 000 Boulders Beach penguins. The birds came to False Bay from Dyer Island after the reduction in commercial pelagic trawling, which has increased the supply of pilchards and anchovy - part of the penguins’ diet. Boulders Beach is located in Simon’s Town, just over the hilly peninsula from Cape Town. It’s easily accessible by bus, car, taxi or train.

CAPE TOWN HAND Crafting memories of the Cape

After all the care, attention and welcome of a Cape Town holiday, it’s time to buy some special mementoes of your visit: something beautiful to treasure and remind you of a special time, and thoughtful gifts to pick out for your loved ones at home. Where to start, though, in a city you probably don’t know too well, with limited time,and a busy travel schedule? Fortunately, Cape Town is packed with delightful shops selling exquisite handmade items. A rich heritage of materials and skills has produced a wide range of exquisite choices, from tiny, light accessories such as a pair of easily packed, delicate ear-rings, or a one-off, colourful ceramic that will bring a ray of fresh African sunshine to your home in winter. In partnership with the Cape Craft & Design Institute, we suggest some beautiful pieces to inspire your shopping. Keep in mind that all these products are handmade and that the relevant retailers will not always keep stock of these exact items. You may want to contact the shops beforehand just to confirm that a product is available and ready for viewing. Or just visit these wonderful outlets and you will be sure to enjoy the pick of a wide selection of handmade goods. & BANANA

Handmade jewellery, fashion accessory, craft workshop and retail store based in Houtbay, Cape Town. Inspired by African contemporary bead work, organic textures, global fashion trends, and stylish fun. Mijou Beller is the inspiration behind &Banana .Mijou makes statement costume jewellery from the inspiration she finds around her at her enclave in Hout Bay, Cape Town. A French immigrant, she fell in love with Cape Town and is inspired by its energy and beauty. She loves making beautiful things out of ordinary materials, and uses shells, beads, wood, horn, gemstones and seeds to striking effect. She works with a dedicated team of ladies from the local community and together they create a unique range of jewellery, colourful, original and stylish, highly appreciated by locals and visitors alike since 1998. Ethno Bongo is the name of the Decor range using local reclaimed wood, oak wine barrels, palm fronds, driftwood, blue gum, and more. And again all items made in our workshop in Hout Bay. The creativity is endless, funky birds, penquins, ostriches made from Palm leaves, calabashes and feathers. Mirrors, candle holders, frames, wine bottle racks, stools and tables, clocks and ceramic sculptures all inspired by the sea side.

Cast Glass Sculpture by Barbara Ewing. Using crystal glass with vibrant colours imported from New Zealand, Barbara Ewing creates soughtafter sculptures which she exhibits at the Edge Glass Gallery. Attached to the Cape Glass Studio from which she and other Cape glass artists work, the gallery represents well-known glass artists from South Africa as well as renowned international artists. ZIZIPHO POSWA Born and bred in the Eastern Cape, Zizipho Poswa takes inspiration from the flora of her native South Africa. She trained as a Textile designer, and uses the love for fabrics and patterns as a basis for her designs, which she translates on to a vibrant collection of ceramics. She is known in particular for her hand-pinched vessels - every piece is uniquely hand-created and individual in every way. Neutral exteriors are often contrasted with modern bright colours on the interior, and subtle scratching and small marks add to the individuality of each piece, reflecting the richness of African tradition and culture. Her pieces have been showcased in boutique stores locally and internationally. She was awarded the Market Development accolade for achievement within the Craft Sector by the Cape Craft Design Institute in 2011 and a finalist in the Woman in Tourism Awards 2009 by the City of Cape Town in the Arts and Culture category.

SHOPPING KRUGERRAND The Krugerrand is a South African gold coin, first minted in 1967 to help market South African gold. The coin, produced by the South African Mint, proved popular and by 1980 the Krugerrand accounted for 90% of the gold coin market. The name itself is a portmanteau of Kruger (the man depicted on the obverse) and Rand, the South African unit of currency. Krugerrands are a popular way to invest in gold. By 1980 the Krugerrand accounted for 90% of the gold coin market. That year South Africa introduced three smaller coins with a half-ounce, quarter ounce, and tenth ounce of gold.

Always close, Always fresh, Always convenient.

That’s why I love my SPAR!

The success of the Krugerrand led to many other gold-producing nations minting their own bullion coins, such as the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf in 1979, the Australian Nugget in 1981, the American Gold Eagle in 1986 and the British Britannia coin. Private mints have also attempted to capitalize off the popularity of the Krugerrand, minting gold and silver bullion rounds (the term coin denotes legal currency) in the style of the Krugerrand. The rounds often depict Paul Kruger and a springbok antelope, some even blatantly copying the same design as on the Krugerrands themselves, though the inscriptions are altered. These bullion rounds are not offered by the South African Mint or the Government of South Africa, and are therefore not official, have no legal tender value and cannot technically be considered coins. The Krugerrand is 32.6 mm in diameter and 2.74 mm thick. The Krugerrand’s actual weight is 1.0909 troy ounces (33.93 g). It is minted from gold alloy that is 91.67% pure (22 karats), so the coin contains one troy ounce (31.1035 g) of gold. The remaining 8.33% of the coin’s weight (2.826 g) is copper (an alloy known historically as crown gold which has long been used for English gold sovereigns), which gives the Krugerrand a more orange appearance than silver-alloyed gold coins. Copper alloy coins are harder and more durable, so they can resist scratches and dents. The South African Mint Company produces limited edition proof Krugerrands intended as collector’s items. These coins are priced above bullion value, although non-proof Krugerrands also have a premium above gold bullion value. They can be distinguished from the bullion Krugerrands by the number of serrations on the edge of the coin. Proof coins have 220 while bullion coins have 160. As the only means to legally possessing gold bullion, the Krugerrand offers a unique way of holding your own gold. Krugerrands carry only a small premium over the value of their gold content. As the gold price is quoted internationally in terms of troy ounces, the value of Krugerrands can easily be determined at any time.

Hello Cape Town 34

As legal tender gold coins, Krugerrands can be bought from, or sold to thousands of gold dealing companies and their branches worldwide. Krugerrands are hard enough to resist normal scratching and denting - an important, practical feature, as soft 24 carat coins and bars are more easily damaged and generally require protective packaging. Krugerrands are easy to transport and store.

ARTS AND CRAFTS No doubts about it – South Africans are a crafty bunch. The country’s people produce a remarkable range of arts and crafts, working from the pavements and markets of the big cities to deep rural enclaves, with every possible form of traditional artwork – and then some.In addition to the standard materials such as beads, grass, leather, fabric and clay, pieces are made using telephone wire, plastic bags, petrol cans and bottle tops – even food tin labels are used to create brightly coloured papier mache bowls. On sale on many a South African street corner are objects made of wire, ranging from representations of the globe to cars and motorcycles – which are capable of manipulated movement – to joke cellphones and working radios. Shops, markets and collectives dealing in African craft are thriving, providing much-needed employment and income in communities such as Fugitive’s Drift in KwaZulu-Natal, which offers a huge variety of basketry, or the Northern Cape Schmidtsdrift community of displaced San people, who produce paintings that constitute an imaginative and highly coloured extension of ancient rock art. A high level of skill is brought to the production of work that has long been a part of African society, and has now found new commercial outlets. South African beadwork, once the insignia of tribal royalty alone, has today found a huge range of applications, from the creation of coverings for everything from bottles to matchboxes – and the reproduction of the red Aids ribbon in the form of small Zulu beadworks known as Zulu love letters. Basketry and ceramics, of course, were long ago brought to a pitch of perfection in traditional South African society, and the outgrowths of these forms today grace gallery plinths as often as they find a place on suburban shelves.(To read more: http:// www.southafrica.info) The Arts and Crafts markets in Cape Town: Green Market Square, in the square that dissects Burg Street and between Longmarket and Shortmarket streets, Cape Town CBD, Monday to Saturday: 9:00 and 16:00.

OSTRICH LEATHER & MOHAIR Ostrich leather is the result of tanning skins taken from African ostriches farmed for their feathers, skin and meat. The leather is distinctive for its pattern of bumps or vacant quill follicles, ranged across a smooth field in varying densities. It requires an intricate, specialised and expensive production process making it costly as well as beautiful. Although the first commercial farming began in South Africa in 1850, the industry collapsed after World War I and the drop in demand for the feathers for fashionable hats and military uniforms. Other products were marketed, with each success battered by world events and droughts until now, when ostrich skin is globally available and seen as a luxury item in high-end demand. Leather came late in the story of ostrich farming but after a tannery was set up onsite, it went on to make an impact in European haute couture and in the U.S. for cowboy boots. Availability was artificially limited when ostrich leather was subject to a cartel monopoly through trade sanctions, and single export and distribution channels until the end of apartheid in 1993. After that and other factors, the South African government began to export stock allowing other countries to have their own ranches. Although wider production resulted in competition and lower prices, Klein Karoo Group remains the leading global producer. Today the industry is driven mostly by the leather and the meat, which is exported to all parts of the world. South Africa produces over 60% of the world’s ostriches and also has a distinct quality edge in the leather tanning process. Eleven years ago, Charles and Melony Biggs were farming ostrich, sheep and goats in the Graaff Reinet area in the Karoo. At first they exported skins to people he had met in the USA, where he had previously farmed ostrich for 4 years. They learned a lot in that time abroad, one thing being what we in South Africa had to offer and show off to the world in terms of leadership in Ostrich and Mohair. They started to seek for local manufacturers and work together with designers to present a classic collection that also presents a freshness and elegancy. In 2000, Karoo Classics opened its doors in Stellenbosch: “We had 30 handbags and six belts in stock, but 100% faith in the fantastic natural products made from ostrich leather and mohair”, says Charles. From the very beginning a policy of Proudly South Africa was adopted. They spent months looking for and visiting factories all over South Africa. The criteria were: simply, high quality at a reasonable price. Today they have a wonderful group of suppliers, from big factories to family businesses and individuals. In 2003, Karoo Classics opened in Cape Town and five years later in Franschhoek. Today they have the world’s largest selection of ostrich leather goods, carrying over 1000 handbags alone.

TOURISM NEWS WORLD BANK SPEAKS UP ON AFRICAN TOURISM By Prof. Dr. Wolfgang H. Thome, eTN Correspondent, Africa The World Bank issued a report, “Africa’s Tourism Set to Boost Economic Growth, Create New Jobs, and Now Outpace Other Regions for New Tourism Investment.” While the full report may be accessed via its main entry portal www.worldbank.org , sections of it are shown below for ease of reference. Sub Saharan Africa’s tourism industry is set to spur more economic growth for the continent and directly employ 6.7 million people by 2021, according to a new World Bank report released today. The report—Tourism in Africa: Harnessing Tourism for Growth and Improved Livelihoods— says that tourism accounted directly or indirectly for one in every 20 jobs in Sub Saharan Africa in 2011, and is one of the few industries on the continent in which women are well represented as employees and managers. Sub Saharan Africa is outpacing other regions in tourism growth. The report examines the potential of African countries to improve and expand their tourism sector, and suggests that 33 of Sub Saharan Africa’s 48 countries currently have the capacity for tourism success through establishing strong political support for developing the industry and attracting increased private investment to help finance and sustain it. The report cites successful examples of countries including Cape Verde, Kenya, Mauritius, Namibia, Rwanda, South Africa, Tanzania and others, who have simplified their tourism policies, liberalized air transport and diversified tourism while protecting their communities and environments, which created a positive investment climate for tourism development. “Africa’s private companies are increasingly attracting regional and international investment and the returns on investing in Africa are among the highest in the world,” says MakhtarDiop, World Bank Vice President for Africa. In close alliance with the private sector, governments must also do their part to create better transport, electricity, infrastructure, and other key services to develop tourism for more broad-based growth and improved livelihoods. Tourism is increasingly attracting regional and international investment, and returns on investments in the sector remain among the highest in the world. Global hotel chains are expanding across Africa, recognizing investment potential and committing millions of dollars in new projects over the next few years to meet increased demand from both international tourists and the continent’s own fast-growing middle class. In 2012, Africa attracted 33.8 million visitors, up from a low 6.7 million visitors in 1990, and its receipts from tourism for the same year amounted to over US$36 billion, or 2.8 percent of the region’s GDP. In 2011, global tourism contributed 9.1 percent to world GDP, 5.9 percent of worldwide exports and 4.5 percent of global investment. Africa’s tourism revenues are rising fast and are set to contribute

Hello Cape Town 42

more and more to world activity. If developed effectively and managed efficiently over time, tourism has the potential to accelerate Africa’s economic growth and job creation. It can also help accelerate the reforms needed to improve airline and road transport as well as other key infrastructure, besides raising the incomes of young men and women, who form a high percentage of the job holders in the sector. “For African countries looking to sustain and increase growth, tourism can be harnessed through joint public and private sector efforts to achieve growth, wealth creation and shared prosperity,” says Gaiv Tata, Director of Financial and Private Sector Development for the World Bank in Africa whose department prepared the study. This report is the first to comprehensively examine tourism in Sub-Saharan Africa at a regional level and to recommend practical evidencebased measures that could create an economic transformation by leveraging the tourism industry to help create jobs, stem poverty and diversify economies. With an analysis of 24 tourism case studies from around the world, the report is a valuable and timely contribution to efforts to build a framework for sustainable tourism in Africa. It also identifies policies and institutional approaches for African countries to make their tourism industry more competitive and attractive to investors. “Although Africa’s tourism potential has largely gone untapped to date, it can now take steps to close the gap with other regions,” says Hannah Messerli, co-author of the report and Senior Private Sector Development Specialist in the World Bank’s Africa Region. She adds: “Given the continent’s abundant natural and cultural resources, as well as business activity, the fundamentals are in place for tourism growth. Using the strategies and examples presented in this report, Africa can claim its fair share of world tourism.”

EIGHT BEACHES AND TWO MARINAS AWARDED BLUE FLAG STATUS

Eight of Cape Town’s beaches and two of its marinas have been awarded Blue Flag status, which gives the city the highest number of Blue Flag beaches in the country. “Having Blue Flag beaches and marinas is a significant tourism draw-card because international visitors know what to expect when visiting a Blue Flag beach or marina. The programme challenges local authorities, beach operators and yacht and marina management to achieve high standards in environmental management, environmental education, safety and security and water quality,” says the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Community Services and Special Projects, Alderman Belinda Walker. The Blue Flag is a voluntary eco-label awarded annually to over 3 650 beaches and marinas in 44 countries across Europe, South Africa, Morocco, Tunisia, New Zealand, Brazil, Canada and the Caribbean. The City has successfully participated in the Blue Flag Beach programme since its inception in South Africa in 2001. The following beaches have been awarded Blue Flag status for this season, which runs from 1 December 2013 to 31 March 2014: Bikini, Mnandi,

Strandfontein, Muizenberg, Llandudno, Camps Bay, Clifton 4th, Silwerstroomstrand Blue Flag beaches are required to meet 32 criteria spanning four aspects of coastal management, including water quality, environmental education and information, environmental management and safety and services. The status indicates that the beaches are clean, have adequate ablution facilities and parking, they are safe and secure to visit, environmentally sound and adhere to international safety and tourism standards. The accreditation is awarded for one season at a time, and can be withdrawn if conditions deteriorate at the beach. Not all beaches in Cape Town have Blue Flag status – but this is not a negative reflection on the beach. The Blue Flag serves as a yardstick to assist the City in improving and enhancing services and facilities on all public beaches. “The City is very pleased at this acknowledgement of our commitment to maintaining world-class beaches. The beaches that have attained Blue Flag status are important to residents and tourists alike and this status is especially encouraging going into the Festive Season. Cape Town is ready to welcome local and international tourist to our beaches,” says Alderman Walker. Two of the City of Cape Town’s marinas, Granger Bay Water Club and the False Bay Marina, received full Blue Flag status. “Last year, Cape Town became the first African city south of the Mediterranean to have its marinas achieve Blue Flag accreditation and we are very pleased that this status has been retained,” says Alderman Walker. The Blue Flag programme provides a quality holiday experience for local and international tourists visiting South Africa, and Cape Town in particular. It is also about enabling local communities to enjoy a better quality of life through increased socio-economic benefits and improved natural resource management. The Blue Flag brand adds value to Cape Town’s Responsible Tourism offerings and supports the implementation of the City’s Responsible Tourism Policy. One of the key elements of Responsible Tourism is the development, management and marketing of tourism in ways that create competitive advantages, and the Blue Flag programme for marinas could only benefit and help to sell Cape Town as a world-class destination. Blue Flag marinas also help to ensure better business opportunities for tourism enterprises, while promoting economic development in the boat-building industry, thus creating job opportunities. The Blue Flag programme is owned and run by the Foundation for Environmental Education – an independent non-profit organisation in Denmark. In South Africa, Blue Flag is managed by the Wildlife and Environment Society of South Africa – also an independent NGO. The Blue Flag programme was started in France in 1985. It has been operating in Europe since 1987 and in areas outside of Europe since 2001, when South Africa joined. Today, Blue Flag has become a truly global programme with an ever-increasing number of countries participating. Published by the City of Cape Town.


SAFETY AT BEACHES

The City urges residents and visitors to be safe at beaches by engaging in safe behaviour while enjoying the sunshine and recreation opportunities beaches offer. As part of the City of Cape Town’s annual Festive Season Safety Plan, it is expected that 400 - 500 trained and accredited lifeguards will be deployed to various beaches between 10:00 and 18:00 daily, throughout the summer season.This is in addition to Lifesaving Western Province’s volunteer services, the National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI), and the Medic helicopter. The City will also be making beach wheelchairs available at ten of its beaches. The provision of the wheelchairs underscores our commitment to being an Inclusive City, by enhancing access to natural resources for all citizens. LIFEGUARDS WILL BE DEPLOYED TO THE FOLLOWING BEACHES: Blue Flag Beaches: Big Bay, Milnerton Clifton, Llandudno, St James Bikini, Muizenberg, Camps Bay, Strandfontein, Mnandi Other: Clovelly, Glencairn, Fish Hoek, False Bay, Hout Bay, Macassar Strand, Kogel Bay, Maidens Cove, Silwerstroom Danger, Gordon’s Bay, Alpha, Monwabisi LIFEGUARDS WILL BE DEPLOYED TO *THE ABOVE BEACHES BETWEEN 10:00 – 18:00 ON THE SPECIFIED DATES: 05 October – 30 November: Lifeguards will be deployed on all of the above beaches for weekends only. 01 December – 31 December: Lifeguards will be deployed on all of the above beaches daily. 01 January – 02 May: Lifeguards will be deployed to all non Blue Flag beaches on weekends, public holidays and school holidays only. 01 December – 31 March: Lifeguards will be deployed to all non Blue Flag beaches daily. Residents and visitors are requested to adhere to the following safety tips on beaches: Alcohol is not permitted on City beaches or at public swimming pools. • Read and obey the beach regulations and follow instructions or advice from lifeguards.

• Report hazardous conditions or incidents to lifeguards or other beach personnel. • Do not enter the sea if you cannot swim. • Only swim in areas supervised by a lifeguard – usually a zone between two red and yellow flags. • Never swim alone. • Swim parallel to the shore if you wish to swim a long distance. • Supervise children closely, even when lifeguards are present. A personal floatation device is recommended for children. • If caught in a rip current, swim parallel to the shore until free, and do not swim against the pull of the current. • Don’t dive into unfamiliar waters – what may seem deep could be very shallow. • Avoid swimming near rocks, piers, jetties, groynes and breakwaters. • If you are in trouble in the sea, shout or wave to signify that you need help. • Only scuba dive if you are trained and certified to do so. • Do not take drinking glasses, glass bottles or glass containers to the beach as they can inflict deep cuts to bare feet. • Wear foot protection on unclean, rocky or hot sand beaches. • Do not light fires on the beach, except in designated areas. • Stay clear of coastal dune cliffs as they can collapse suddenly. • Protect your skin from over-exposure to UVA and UVB rays by wearing waterproof sunscreen with a high protection factor of 20+. Avoid the sun between the hottest times of the day, usually 11:00 to 15:00. • Wear eye protection – good quality sunglasses protect against UV rays. • Drink plenty of water regularly to avoid dehydration even if you don’t feel thirsty. Your body needs water to keep cool and replace salts lost through sweating. • Watch out for signs of heat stroke, which is lifethreatening including: hot, red and dry skin, rapid and weak pulse and rapid, shallow breathing. Move to a cooler place, cool the body down and seek medical assistance. • If you see someone else in trouble in the sea, alert the lifeguards or find help. Do not put your own life in danger as well. • There is nothing wrong with making young children wear approved life jackets to play in the surf. That doesn’t mean you can leave them alone – but it will make them safer. Beach users must familiarise themselves with the flag warning system at these beaches, by reading the signage available, and by freely speaking to a beach-based shark spotter. It is critical that when a siren sounds, bathers (including surfers and paddlers) must evacuate the water. The summer season sees increased numbers of sharks visiting Cape Town’s coastal waters, beach users are advised to bear this in mind and be vigilant at all times when bathing. The City would also like to remind beach users,

especially the youth, not to swim in the Zandvlei River mouth. Nobody is to jump off the bridge over the river mouth, as this is dangerous and can lead to serious injury or loss of life. Visitors to Cape Town’s beaches should also be on the lookout for rip currents. If you don’t know how to identify a rip current, ask a lifeguard on duty whether it is safe to enter the water. Rip currents: A rip current is a strong, narrow surface current that flows rapidly away from the shore. Rip currents form when excess water that has accumulated along a shore due to wind and waves rushes back suddenly to deeper waters, also called rip tide. Rip currents are able to develop anywhere that there are breaking waves, these “rivers” of current produced by water draining from the beach and back out to sea happen all the time. Often rip currents move slowly enough to barely be detected. Given the right circumstances of waves and beach profile, they can develop into currents moving at speeds of up to 2 metres per second – faster than any of us can swim. Ranging in size from just a few metres to hundreds of metres, their pull can be to just outside the breaking waves to over two hundred metres from shore. As with all risks, avoiding rip currents altogether is safest. Rip currents are not always visually detectable but stronger rip currents give some telltale signs: • Water through a surf zone that is a different colour than the surrounding water. • A break in the incoming pattern of waves. • Seaweed or debris moving out through the surf zone. • Isolated turbulent and choppy water in the surf zone. Beach goers should swim only where lifeguards are on duty, and if they are not on duty do not swim. If you are caught in a rip current the most important thing to do is to stay calm and relax. Swim slowly and conservatively parallel to the shoreline or relax and let it carry you out past the breakers until it slacks. Contrary to myth – rip currents are not “undertow,” which a misleading term. They will not pull you under the water. As long as you can tread water or float you will be safe until you can escape the flow and head back to the beach. When you head back in, do so at an angle to the shoreline. Maintain a slow and relaxed pace until you reach the shore or assistance arrives. If you are swimming at a beach where lifeguards are on duty ─ and you should be ─ they will most likely have seen you and will be on their way out to help (or be watching carefully). Any emergency and/or distress call regarding a drowning incident can be reported to the City’s 107 emergency number. Dial 107 from a landline or 021 480 7700 from a cellphone. Remember that lifeguards are there to assist swimmers and help those who get into difficulty in the water. Please adhere to their instructions. For more safety information visit www.nsri.org.za
