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.

INFECTING THE CITY When: 11- 16 March Where: Cape Town City Centre Infecting The City places exciting new artworks in unexpected spaces in the middle of the City that challenge Cape Town’s ideas of art and public space. Cape Town is a city of contradiction. Of beauty that hurts and then there’s just the hurt. The discrepancies in living conditions amongst its peoples, the difficult transportation and far flung townships and the selective ownership of the city are remnants that make the city an object of critique as much as an object of praise. For this range then it is a city that inspires. This year’s programme of public art, while comprising many artists interested in an experience of the aesthetic, the beautiful or the sensual, features those who work with the ugly, uncomfortable or strange: beauty as truth, as an intense emotion in what can be an overwhelming, confounding and numbing city. As Cape Town takes on a global spotlight, the demand is greater for a city that is more than a tourist trap but reacts the realism of its inhabit-ants. A city that listens to the people that populate the city, in as much as to the visitor looking at the city through a camera. In most prominent cities, the city dweller is an integral part of the character of a space and possibly why these cities are visited – think a Berliner, a Londoner, a New Yorker, a Parisian – where the inhabitant is deἀned not by culture or race or lineage but by their cityness. For citizens in the company of artists and visitors from other parts of the country, the continent and the world, Infecting The City provides pause and cause to consider what is a Capetonian, a South African, a citizen beyond the smiley faces and buff bodies on tour packages. The range of work in this programme has grown: more visual art and music; more inter-national artists and more ways to interact from following routes of performances and experiencing installations and art works to individual, solitary audio tours to panels and discussions. There is no doubt the ultimate goal is to develop the festival beyond the inner city to further afield. And Infecting The Country. www.infectingthecity.com

Instead of a celebration, this new situation becomes the cancer that breaks the Khalipa family apart. To add insult to injury, Robert is not called by the ANC to come home and be part of the negotiations. What follows is a plot full of intrigue, lies, backstabbing, conspiracy and political in-fighting. Peter Tshabalala, a young comrade who was Robert’s assistant in the ANC office in Stockholm, plays an important role in the isolation of Robert by the organisation. How can the release of Nelson Mandela be the reason for this family to break up? Baxter Theatre, 27 Feb- 29 Mar, Tickets R110R140 from Computicket: 083 915 8000 www.computicket.mobi. PASSAGE What does it mean to be a good man in South Africa today? How do we grow from boys into responsible caring men? How do men engage with power without resorting to violence?
These are the questions that are explored in Passage, an exciting new collaboration between the Baxter Theatre Centre and Magnet Theatre. Directed by Thando Doni (graduate of the Magnet Training Programme, Zabalaza Theatre Festival Best Director winner and recipient of the GIPCA emerging director’s bursary), one of the most inspired, energised and creative directors in South Africa at the moment, and performed by 5 new talents on the Cape Town stage, Passage goes to the heart of the crisis of violence against women in South Africa.
Robert Khalipa has been living in exile in Stockholm, Sweden, for over 30 years, with his wife, Anna Olson, who has inherited her father’s large electronic and communications company, and their daughter Ayanda, a doctor working in a hospital in Stockholm. Something that Robert has been waiting for all his life in exile has finally
Passage not only explores the values, assumptions, fears and behaviours that allow such violence to be perpetrated but investigates, in our multicultural context, how boys transition into men. Looking at the rites of passage that boys undergo in South Africa to move from childhood to responsible adulthood, the production points to actions that

11 Hello Cape Town
Hello Cape Town 12
is a term used in many South African townships to describe an informal barbecue or braai where friends come together near a butchery, to grill meat in an open fire. The site is usually provided by the butcher owner and only people who buy meat from the butcher are allowed to use the facility. Shisa nyama is a Zulu phrase and it literally means "burn meat".
Having opened its doors on 30 March 2012, the Corner lounge is an upmarket Sports Bar in Gugulethu owned by the infamous Nkululeko Tuntubele. Once a local criminal, the entrepreneur has completely turned his life around through uplifting the local community. “Corner Lounge makes no competition with other businesses around it. I just want to be a good example to the youth who are involved in crime,” Tuntubele said. Corner lounge is built on exceptional service, cleanliness and its focus is on a niche market. The target market is the “Black Diamond”, those who originate from the township and have now made something of themselves, and live outside of Gugulethu. Corner lounge is situated at the corner of Ny 116 and Ny 138. Mon - Sun: 12:00 pm - 1:00 am. Cash only. 082 511 9541

NELSON MANDELA LEGACY EXHIBITION 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 this

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.

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

Hello Cape Town 34
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)
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.
35 Hello Cape Town
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. 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.

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 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! And then for those wanting a “sporting” activity, there’s Cave Golf, an indoor mini-golf course (“putt-putt”) that’s both fun and challenging to play. The well-designed course features vertical ramps, sharp corners, numerous obstacles and slanted putting surfaces. It’s a great blend of difficulty and enjoyment, and it’s an inexpensive outing for families and children. 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 five-minute ascent to the top of Table Mountain offers a 360° view of Cape Town, the ocean and the neighbouring peaks. Once at the top visitors enjoy spectacular views and the peaceful feeling of being over one thousand meters above the city below. The area at the top of the mountain is surprisingly large so leave enough time to stroll along the paths, enjoy the viewing platforms and soak up the vistas.

TWO OCEANS AQUARIUM
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.

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.
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.
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.

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...

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.

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.

Hello Cape Town 44
This year’s carnival is going to be bigger, brighter and bolder and is one of the more colourful World Design Capital 2014 projects. The City of Cape Town is proud to be one of the sponsors of the event, themed ‘Imagine’. The Cape Town Carnival (CTC) is set to explode in full colour on the fan walk in Green Point on Saturday 15 March 2014, with a showcase of large-scale floats, outrageous costumes, and impressively choreographed dance routines. Cape Town’s biggest, brightest and boldest street carnival will burst onto the FanWalk in Green Point! The much anticipated Cape Town Carnival is an annual event that captivates Mother City residents and visitors with a showcase of magnificent large scale floats, outrageous costumes, and impressively choreographed dance routines. “Imagination is the magic ingredient that makes new things possible and transforms old and out-dated ideas. If you can’t imagine it, it’s hard to believe you can do it. We want to tickle people’s imagination with a sense of possibility,” says Brad Baard, the Carnival’s Creative Director. CTC 2014 was launched earlier in early February, giving residents just a taste of what to expect from the event. It is one of the World Design Capital 2014 projects and its ‘Imagine’ theme pays homage to this accolade bestowed on the Mother City at the beginning of the year. ‘We are proud to be the World Design Capital 2014 as it opens the doors of creativity to all of our residents. Being creative can transform lives and communities. As an inclusive city, we want to encourage residents to be a part of the carnival,
which is a celebration of our diverse communities,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Tourism, Events and Marketing, Councillor Grant Pascoe. The carnival’s creative director, Brad Baard, agreed. ‘Creating the reality of a shared celebration of cultural diversity and creativity is part of our mission. It is one of the reasons that the carnival was selected as an official World Design Capital 2014 project. CTC makes design visible, participative and fun. The carnival inspires people, with first-hand experience of participation in design and creative expression,’ explained Mr Baard. This year the official poster artwork conveys the Cape Town Carnival’s theme more clearly than ever. With a hint of African circus flavour, the joyous main character is overflowing with fun forms of imagination, literally popping out of her head. From 15:00 on 15 March 2014, carnival-goers are encouraged to join the celebrations as the fan walk turns into a pedestrian walkway filled with fun, food and folk enjoying the freedom of their city streets. The parade begins as the sun sets at 19:30 and is anticipated to last about two hours. Spectators can then party the night away at the carnival end-party which will feature DJ Fresh and South African super-band Mi Casa. Official Event Hashtag: #CTCarnival
Programme of Events 15:00 OWN THE STREET! From 3 pm the FanWalk turns into a pedestrian walkway filled with fun, food and folk enjoying the freedom of their city streets. Don’t miss a visit to the lively activation zones hosted by KFM, DHL and MNET – you just never know who you’ll meet on the tarmac today. 18:00 STREET CLEARANCE It’s time to begin the countdown to a magical moment! We will slowly clear the streets of pedestrians and vendors to give our gigantic floats space to glide down the FanWalk. Not long to go now! 19:30 PARTY BEGINS The Cape Town Carnival explodes onto the FanWalk with over 2 000 spectacularly costumed performers and ten large-scale floats! Spiceyfillers – from pimped bicycles to our ever-popular City firemen – are sure to tickle your creative taste buds. 22:00 AFTER-PARTY BEGINS Follow the Carnival procession as it winds its way to the Stadium traffic circle where SA super-band MiCasa and DJ Fresh will be hosting a thumping street party!

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.

AROUND THE CITY URBAN MASTER CLASSES
FREE COMMUNITY CONCERT The pre festival Free Community concert is a permanent feature of the Cape Town International Jazz festival and is as old as the festival itself. Held annually in the heart of the city at Green Market Square, this concert is the festivals’ way of showing appreciation to the people of Cape Town, by giving them a taste of some of the world class performers at no charge, hence often drawing thousands of music lovers into the city between 17:00 and 23:00 at Greenmarket Square on Wednesday, 26 of March. ARTS & CULTURE FOCUS SCHOOLS This program of Rehearsals, Live Performance and Event Production workshops presented by industry professionals and mentors provide training within music industry standards. The program includes a skills development course, stage etiquette prep, musical appreciation and conducts training in both musical and production elements. Every year one of the schools is elected to perform on the main stage at the CTIJF, while an amalgamated group, consisting of members of each high school ensemble, has the opportunity to perform as an All Star Band at the Free Community Stage hosted by The CTIJF. The Training and Development Program is managed and co-ordinated by a team of skilled event organisers and project managers from various walks of life. The Arts and Culture Focus School Program is supported by the WCED and managed by The CTIJF Training and Development team of Taz Israel (Administration), Sharif Baker (Production) and Craig Parks (Content) A&C Focus School Rehearsals on Saturday 22 of March 18:00-19:00 and the Focus School Live Performance on Sunday 23 of March at the same location.
Music Business workshops are hosted by respected industry stalwart Graeme Gilfillan and various experienced music industry individuals, this workshop is newly designed as a panel discussion presented by top industry professionals and aimed at musicians and others in the industry wanting to know more about the business of music. The workshops cover business operations, event production, royalties and the latest trends in the music industry. An interactive encounter presented by some of the top jazz and urban musicians in the world, this is the chance to spend quality time with the selected musicians who perform at the festival. Learn about each artist’s life in the industry and what it takes to perform and sell albums all over the world. Workshops will include guest speakers and popular international Jazz musicians. Hosting Musicians names are still to be confirmed. Will be held at the Cape Sun Hotel on Friday 28 of March 10h00 - 14h30 & Saturday 29 March 10h30 - 15h00 DUOTONE PHOTOGRAPHIC EXHIBITION The World-class photographic exhibition held at the Duotone Gallery displays the work of both amateur and professional industry professionals that uniquely capture the essence of “jazz in motion” and documents the emergence and growth of jazz globally. As old as the festival itself, this long running and very popular exhibition has over the years housed the work of , amongst others, Alf Khumalo, Mike Mzeleni, Basil Breakey, Fanie Jason, George Hallett, Herman Lenard and Uli Paschewoschny.
The 15th edition of the Cape Town International Jazz Festival explores two themes this year: One celebrates the 15th edition of the festival with images culled from the archives, especially with reference to the photographers who have consistently covered it for espAfrika over the years. The second theme is dedicated to the life of our beloved Nelson Rolihlala Mandela who passed away last year. These images are taken from the files of Festival Director Rashid Lombard who, as a photographer back then, extensively documented South Africa’s transition to democracy in the 1980s and 90s. In addition, there will also be a display of some of the work of photographers who have participated in the Jazz Photography Workshop which has been run by Peter McKenzie for the last three years. This week-long workshop, run in conjunction with Gwen Ansell’s popular Arts Journalism course, helps to spread the understanding of the visual and verbal language of Jazz to a wider audience. These elite workshops are run a week prior to the festival. The photographic display will be open at the CTICC on 28- 29 of March.
