The classic Southern Tale of Show Boat was performed in another ground breaking, theatrical spectacle at the Artscape Theatre from Friday 16 May – Sun 18 May 2014. Director Janice Honeyman has once again achieved another brilliant production to add to her already prestigious collection as the audiences were dazzled by Cape Town Opera’s talented voices. The original book & lyrics were written by Oscar Hammerstein II. The plot follows the lives of performers, stagehands and dockworkers on a Mississippi River show boat named the Cotton Blossom and spans a 40-year period (from 1887 to 1927). The production features their stories of tragic, enduring love and racist conflicts.

Source Africa will take place for the second time in Cape Town this year. It will be the most important annual pan-African textile, clothing and footwear trade event on the international calendar encouraging linkages between buyers, manufacturers and suppliers, investment into manufacturing capacity in Africa and accelerating job creation for many years to come.

Cape Town G&S, the producers of My Fair Lady, Annie and Fiddler on the Roof, will stage a new spectacular production of Oklahoma! accompanied by the Cape Philharmonic Orchestra in the ArtsCape Opera House from 19 July to 3 August. Rodgers and Hammerstein’s first collaboration remains their most innovative, having set the standards and established the rules of musical theatre still being followed today. The evergreen songs including Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin’, The Surrey With the Fringe on Top and Oklahoma!, with vibrant dance numbers and a charming story, triumphantly blended into one of the masterpieces of musical theatre. For More info go to www.artscape.co.za/show/oklahoma/889/ Tickets are available at Computicket: 083 915 8000, www.computicket.mobi. Cape Town

Audiences were charmed and thrilled by old favourite tunes, like ‘Ol’ Man River’, ‘Can’t Help Lovin’ Dat Man’ and ‘Make Believe’, performed by an outstanding Cape Town Opera cast. The show was a visual spectacle with over 100 marvellous period costumes and a superb stage set. Albert Horne and Gareth Jones’ musical direction was painstaking, and the choreography by Timothy Le Roux was equally impressive. The production was truly magical to watch as audiences were absorbed into the wild and wonderful stories of these multi- layered characters. If you missed this dazzling performance, be sure to book for Rossini’s Il Viaggio a Reims, Cape Town Opera’s next show stopper in collaboration with the University of Cape Town College of Music from 26-30 August 2014 (5 performances) at the Baxter Theatre.

The music industry followed in early 2008, when the album received the prestigious Brit-Award for Album of the Year, a huge honour for a group still less than a year old. Since that time their music has achieved remarkable success. Their upbeat version of ‘Swing Low’ was chosen as the Official Anthem of England Rugby for the 2007 Rugby World Cup. In 2008 their highly anticipated 2nd album, And So It Goes was released and went straight in at number 12 in the UK pop charts and Number 1 in several classical charts around the world.

He has performed various leading tenor roles in operas, as well as a leading part in The Phantom of the Opera in London’s West End. His debut album in the UK, titled Cortes, was released on 16 April 2007 and entered the UK classical chart at number 1. For the Cape Town shows, the Distinguished Stellenbosch Camerata Orchestra will accompany BLAKE and CORTES for this stellar line up of the finest of classic crossover singers in the world.

Having taken 4 years out to focus on his then new-born son and family, he is now ready to take the recording and performing world by storm again with two albums in development one crossover and the other classical. Having been nominated for the Icelandic Music Awards and the Icelandic Performing Arts Awards for his opera roles numerous times as well as being voted sexiest man in Iceland not once but twice, his singing engagements have taken him to Scandinavia, Europe, USA and Asia and the prestigious venues of the Barbican, RoyalAlbert Hall and Royal Festival Hall in London and Carnegie Hall in New York.

Nestled at the foot of the majestic Simonsberg mountain range, Grande Provence Heritage Wine Estate in Franschhoek exudes dignity and elegance while embracing a modern flair by means of the many scattered sculptures throughout the manicured gardens. Grande Provence is part of The Huka Retreats, infamous for selecting venues that are intimate, sophisticated and unique. The Estate’s Winemaker, Karl Lambour, embodies the essence of the estate in his wines using only classic cultivars of the highest quality. The award winning Restaurant at Grande Provence is headed by Executive Chef, Darren Badenhorst and entices guests with menus that radiate culinary distinction. Prepared from local fare, the cuisine is characterised by traditional French dishes flavoured with Asian influences. Chef Darren Badenhorst’s new winter lunch menu (R355 per person) is structured as a 3 course dining experience and the dinner menu (R495 per person) is served with an additional amuse bouche, palate cleanser and pre-dessert. Each dish can be enjoyed with the winemaker’s personal suggestion of wine to compliment the fare. Chef Badenhorst has incorporated a theatrical panache in his menu using wisps of silver grey smoke in certain dishes, and other delightful touches. A memorable starter is the truffled garden pea and estate cured pancetta risotto with smoked thyme and black pepper espuma. This is suitably paired with the Grande Provence Viognier / Chenin Blanc. The palate is full bodied with layers of flavour, including dried apricot and cream. An extended, dry finish rounds off this perfectly balanced wine blend. For the main course, try the superb acorn smoked pressed pork belly, bacon wrapped king scallop, apple essence pipette, horseradish potato, pork cheek boudin blanc, and spiced beetroot apple gel expertly paired with the medium bodied Estate Pinot Noir. As a dessert option, spoil yourself with the Galaxy of Textures made up of a chocolate expresso mousse, macadamia nuts, morello cherries, gold and silver skilfully paired with Angels Tears White made from Muscat d’Alexandrie (Hanepoot) 50% and Chenin Blanc 50%. The Muscat vines are rare in the Franschhoek area and need to be closely guarded, so ensure you make time to savour this deliciously fruity, semi-sweet white wine. Grande Provence Heritage Wine Estate is a venue filled with exclusive experiences incorporating cuisine, award winning Estate wines, accommodation and a collection of the finest South African contemporary art. Book in advance to reserve your very own experience of this extraordinary utopia set amongst vineyards drenched in tradition with a contemporary twist. The Restaurant is open daily for lunch from 12h00 and dinner from 19h00.

DINNER & SHOW AMAZINK AmaZink Live is nestled on the edge of Stellenbosch town within Kayamandi, which is made up of a myriad of winding streets, and corrugated iron sheet houses.

AmaZink Live welcomes guests with warm hearts, merry painted faces and delights you with the finest ‘kasi’ cuisine complimented by world class entertainment that will ignite your passion and enchant your spirit. Gather your friends and family to complete your Bucket List every Friday evening.

The Beefcake was born! Since that moment men (and yes women too) have been admiring the male form and drooling over their fine physiques. Meanwhile hungry Americans were creating a mouth-watering jaw-dropping masterpiece to fill their increasing waists: a half-pound beef burger appropriately named a Beefcake. What better way to combine both fine form and fine food that at Beefcakes Burger Bar. Inspired by the heydays of the 1950’s and the trend setting styles of Miami South Beach where Flamingos flock to be surrounded by over the top drag performers, camp chic and a touch of madness. Beefcakes is open from Mon – Sat, Noon till Midnight, Nightly drag shows, Booking essential 0214259019 or capetown@beefcakes.co.za for more info visit www.beefcakes.co.za BLOEMENDAL RESTAURANT MEDIEVAL NIGHTS Bloemendal Restaurant is positioned on top of one of the highest hills in the Northern Suburbs. With a panoramic view of 270° the Cape Peninsula, you are sure to experience the best sunset moments ever... On arrival to the Medieval Night experience guest will be helped by the cavaliers (waitrons) to a glass of sweet wine or juice and help them to get dressed in the proper medieval gear, they will no longer be known as guests but Lords and ladies. All the lords and ladies will then have a chance to get a drink, mingle before the proceedings starts. No glasses are allowed. The court Jester will brief the king and queen in advance before he enters the court and introduce himself to the “peasants” who are visiting the kingdom. In good faith they will obey and respect the chosen king and queen. Whilst explaining the rules the Jester will make a few jokes and throw the peasants (lords and ladies behaving badly or not listening) into the dungeon or stocks. When the rules are done starters will be served and the Jester will leave the venue until

everyone has had starters. The jester will return after starters have been served and then proceed. If there are speeches it is preferred that it is to be done after starters to get all the formal proceedings done as the medieval party is about letting your hair down and enjoying your selves. After that the King and Queen will have a chance to throw peasants into the dungeons, have them sing songs for them and congratulate Lords and Ladies who have impressed them so far by drowning them in a goblet of wine. We will then move on to main course and it is tradition that before main course is served the king and queen will be entertained by each table performing a song, the table who does this the best will receive main course first. The Jester will once again leave the court. Once main course is finished the Jester will return and over throw the kingdom so that the dance floor can be opened.

WEEKEND SCENE GREAT GATHERINGS BAY HARBOUR- THE MARKET OF HOUT BAY Open Friday: 17:00-21:00, Saturday 9:30 - 16:00 and Sunday: 9:30- 16:00, 31 Harbour Road, Hout Bay. www.bayharbour.co.za

The New Treetop Canopy Walkway In celebration of its Centenary (1913- 2013), Kirstenbosch botanical gardens chose to add this spectacular project that would be a unique and permanent feature to the venue. This special walkway is a perfect means to mark the occasion. It was built purely from bequest money which has been left to Kirstenbosch by numerous donors, but predominantly Mary Mullins. It is also a fantastic opportunity to take people into the treetops, a place with a distinctive ecology that is generally inaccessible. From here people can experience the forest from high above the ground and also see birds and other animals that are generally elusive. One can experience an entirely new world of tree dynamics - how the treetops move in the wind and how the crowns of the trees interact with one another. The walkway then bursts through and above the canopy, giving you an impression of what it is like to be above the forest. At this point, the walkway provides spectacular 360 degree vistas comprising of Cape Town and the surrounding majestic mountain slopes. Adding to the exceptionality of this modern feature is the fact that the walkway is fully wheelchair accessible. The design of the walkway is envisaged as a sinuous, lightweight, non-intrusive steel structure, which supports a slatted timber deck, and snakes its way into, through and over the ever-changing tree canopy. The structure, comprising ribs and a structural spine, inspired by a snake’s, is supported on slender steel columns intertwined with creepers. On site, the pieces were bolted together and mounted on top of long columns much like a giant mechanic set. The walkway takes advantage of the sloping ground and starts and ends within the arboretum, so there is almost no visual impact from the lawns and walks in the garden. There are no mechanical or electrical aspects to the walk and the gentle gradients will easily raise visitors to over 11 meters above ground and is about a 130 meters long. There is no extra charge for this added feature. A normal garden entry ticket is all that is required.

Photographs by Adam Harrower

Opening/Closing times of the garden: September to March 08h00am -19h00pm, and from April to August 08:00-18:00 every day.

This decadent treat costs R75 per person and comprises four exquisite cupcakes matched with a specific Delheim wine. First up to fulfill that ‘fairies dancing on the tongue’ feeling is Rooibos Cupcake infused with lemon and topped with a cream cheese and honey icing, which is paired with the Delheim Unwooded Chardonnay for a fun, fruity and fresh start. The wine’s vibrant citrus aromas and mineral undertones cut through and complement the sweeter taste profile of the confection and uplift the subtle Rooibos nuances. Next up is the exotic Pomegranate Cupcake matched with the ever-popular Delheim Pinotage Rosé. The strawberry and raspberry kisses combined with the perfumed floral notes in the wine pair well and accentuate the grenadine flavoured, ‘wish-i-could-lick-the-bowl’ cream cheese icing. A traditional African Makataan Cupcake festooned with makataan (wild melon) syrup icing shares the spotlight with the Delheim Chardonnay Sur Lie. The citrus, stone fruit and mineral notes of the wine add a gentle, refreshing twist to the melon’s tropical-tinted and somewhat tart taste. It is a superb crowd-pleasing combo with flavours that merge and mellow with subtle sweetness. The tasting ends on decadent high with Pumpkin Cupcake paired with the Delheim Pinotage. This mouthwatering morsel is made with farm grown pumpkin, spiced up with star anise, cinnamon and nutmeg and topped with pickled pumpkin. Exuding black cherry, plum and red berry fruit backed by dark chocolate and floral notes, the wine peaks at mid-palate and then fades to the rear to allow the distinct flavor of the cupcake to return for the grand finale. The Delheim Cupcake & Wine Pairing is on offer seven days a week at the tasting room – between 9:00 and 16:30 – and pre-bookings are essential.

WILDLIFE ALL YEAR ELEPHANT RIDES

Join the southern-most elephants in the world at Knysna Elephant Park. Where a resident family of African elephants and world-class guides will unravel the sad and mystical story of the Knysna forest elephants… The Park offers a rare and exciting opportunity to get close to these gentle giants, who live in a controlled, free-range environment in the heart of the famous Garden Route.

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.

Their elephants are orphans rescued from culling operations. They play a vital role in closing the gap between man and animal, allowing us to better understand the plight of the African Elephant and that of their peers in the Knysna Forest. Visitors leave the park with a sense of awe for these magnificent animals – they’ve been ‘touched by an elephant.’ In order to cater for all preferences they have a range of inspiring elephant experiences: • Daily Tours provide for a shorter experience of meeting, feeding and interacting with the gentle giants. • Elephant Back Rides and Walks allow for longer and more personal interaction. • Exclusive Sunrise/Sunset Safaris and Sundowner Safaris are the private and intimate encounters. • Sleeping with the Elephants in the unique Elephant Lodge is the ultimate experience where you get to spend all day and all night soaking up all the sights, sounds and delights of the elephant world! www.knysnaelephantpark.co.za Tel: +27 (0)44 532 7732

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).

Hello Cape Town 32

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 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.

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.

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 majority of the seals on Duiker Island, out of Hout Bay Harbour, are males waiting out their time until they 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.

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.

BIG 5 SAFARI

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 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.

SHARK CAGE DIVING

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.

African Big Five Game Species: African bush elephant (Loxodontaafricana): The African


ROUND 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.

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)

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.

Saving Private Rhino is an initiative established after 2 rhino where brutally killed and dehorned on the Aquila Private Game Reserve. The initiative has been set up to ensure the future conservation of Africa’s rhino and wildlife heritage.

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 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. 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. Investgold Cape Town: 021 552 9200

PRECIOUS STONES Southern Africa is often considered the “gemstone capital of the world” as almost half of the world’s gemstones are found in this part of the world. While some may only think of gemstones as the fabulous and expensive varieties like Diamonds and Tanzanite, there are also many other beautiful and unusual gemstones that are associated with Southern Africa – like Tiger’s Eye, Rose Quartz, Amethyst, Pietersite, Malachite, Verdite, Blue lace

Hello Cape Town 38

Agate, Sodalite, and many more. One of the most popular and convenient places to experience the amazing beauty and variety of gemstones that are found and crafted locally is right here in the V&A Waterfront at the popular Scratch Patch and Mineral World in Dock Road next to the parking garage, and just down from the Two Oceans Aquarium. The Scratch Patch has become world-famous as a place where you can have loads of fun “scratching” for your favourite gemstones from hundreds of thousands of tumble-polished stones that quite literally cover the floor. This is a truly original concept that has been copied in other parts of the world. According to how many gemstones you wish to take home, visitors have a choice from a small bag to a large cup container. At the Mineral World factory shop you can see an incredible range of gemstone items including stone carvings and other “art” pieces; high-quality “investment” gems (like Tanzanite and Diamonds); jewellery of all kinds; and lots of inexpensive gemstone items that make ideal take-home-gifts. You will also discover a large range of mineral specimens, rough gemstone pieces, and fossils that will fascinate you and bring out the geologist in you! Besides the outlet at the V&A Waterfront, there are also Scratch Patch/Mineral World branches at Simon’s Town (Dido Valley Road, and also the site of the Topstones tumble-polishing and gem-crafting factory), and at the West Coast Ostrich Farm (Van Schoorsdrif Road, just off the N7). So, make sure that you discover the magic of gemstones! Scratch Patch & Mineral World, 1 Dock Road (next to the parking garage and near the Aquarium). Tel 021 419 9429.

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.

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. Ostrich leather and Mohair products can be found at Karoo Classics. See their ad in our Handmade Section.

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.

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE

Rich in cultural and natural heritage this destinations includes the famous Cape Point. Due to the variety of wildlife that occurs here it is the only section of the Table Mountain National Park that is fenced and visitors should look out for Eland, Red Hartebeest, Bontebok and Zebra. Be sure to visit the Buffelsfontein Visitor Centre that showcases all the plants and animals to look out for in a particular season and is full of informative signage. 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.

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.

ROBBEN ISLAND

From the 17th to the 20th centuries, Robben Island served as a place of banishment, isolation and imprisonment. Today it is a World Heritage Site and museum, a poignant reminder to the newly democratic South Africa of the price paid for freedom. The three and a half hour tour includes a return trip across Table Bay, a visit to the Maximum Security Prison, interaction with an ex-political prisoner and a 45 minute bus tour with a guide providing commentary. 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 www.robben-island.org.za Tel: 021 413 4220/1

Operating Hours: Winter: Apr – Sept: 07:00 - 17:00 Summer: Oct – March: 06:00 - 18:00 Visit www.sanparks.org for more info.

P.S. Baboons in the parking lot are not a rare picture as one might think.

Hello Cape Town 40


Not sure where to go for a wine route adventure? It all depends on how much time you have and how much of day - or week - you’d like to make of it. For those with very little time, you’ll be happy to know that Cape Town’s CBD presents a host of wine bars that will guide you through a virtual wine tasting of practically any estate you choose. But for those who do have some time... The "Hello Winelands" full guide to all the wine estates and wineries can be obtained at the Cape Tourism outlets in the city, at the airport, on table mountain, in Kirstenbosch and Blouberg.

WHAT WINE ROUTE?

CONSTANTIA VALLEY Constantia Valley is the wine route at the heart of the Mother City (or at least a little to the left of it). This is the oldest wine-growing area in Southern Africa and stretches from Wynberg hill in the north, to the Silvermine mountains (the Tokai area) in the south. The ten wine cellars on the route boast a winemaking history dating back to 1685. Around the peninsula, not a part on the Constantia Valley, but still close enough, there are a few more award winning wine estate to be explored.

With its hectares of flourishing vineyards, award winning wines and hospitable atmosphere. The Durbanville Wine Valley consists of twelve wineries, each offering the finest in wines, and complemented with some of the best fine dining restaurants and intimate country kitchens in the region.

FRANSCHHOEK WINE ROUTE Nestled between towering mountains in the beautiful Cape winelands lies the magnificent Franschhoek Valley. This is the food and wine heartland of the country, where splendid wines are grown and our top chefs create international cuisine. Here breath-taking scenery, warm hospitality, world class cuisine and the finest wines all combine to create lasting memories. Spectacular vineyards cover these mountain slopes settled more than 300 years ago by the Huguenots, who brought with them their age-old French wine and food culture. This is a valley rich in history centred around a picturesque village of friendly, welcoming people.

STELLENBOSCH WINE ROUTES The Stellenbosch Wine Route is the first and the largest in South Africa and all the estates along the route are within a 12km radius of the town. It is arguably the country´s most famous, and includes more than 200 wine and grape producers within the boundaries of the Stellenbosch Wine of Origin classification. The Wine Route is divided into five sub-routes for a convenient exploration but you are welcome to be creative and target the wineries by any classification or taste. Daily wine tasting, cellar tours and sales are offered at most cellars and many of these have restaurant and picnic facilities. Some cellars offer tasting by appointment only. For more information: www.wineroute.co.za, Tel: 021 883 3584 WELLINGTON WINE ROUTE 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 the hinterland with their oxen and their wagons.

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. 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. All operational costs are covered through sponsorships, fundraisers and private donations. StreetSmart South Africa is registered as a Section 21 Company, a Public Benefit Organisation and a Non-Profit Organisation. If you are looking for an easy way to help the vulnerable children in your community, dine at StreetSmart Restaurants.
