FNB Festival |

Cape Town

6 - 20 OCTOBER 2012 Cape Town’s city centre is set to host the city’s inaugural variety project, the FNB Variété Festival – Cape Town from 6-20 October this year. The project is set to grow into a fully-fledged arts festival embracing the entire CBD within the next few years. The Festival, brought to the city by Eddy Cassar Public Relations, producers of the Vodacom Funny Festival, uses unconventional theatre venues in the city centre and boasts a selection of top local and international acts, including the international theatre hit Faulty Towers, the Dining Experience and Marc Lottering as few have seen him, in cabaret! Held in “pop-up theatres” in hotel lobbies, cafes, an oyster bar, a hotel restaurant and a conference venue, the Festival, the first of its kind in Cape Town, hosts a selection of awardwinning local and international acts in small intimate venues. In total, the Festival involves 65 performances in the city centre over a period of two weeks. The objective is to get Capetonians to embrace the novel project and to enjoy the city centre as a recreational space at night. “We have put a lot of thinking into the planning and potential growth of the Festival. The Festival offers Capetonians a wonderful opportunity of enjoying top acts in an intimate space. We have devised a five year plan which will see the Festival grow, embracing certain nodes in the city”, says Festival producer Eddy Cassar. The first node is situated around the Cathedral and Taj Hotel at the top end of the St Georges’ Mall, with the award–winning production of Faulty Towers the Dining Experience, sched-

uled for The Cape Sun Hotel. Future points of growth include the 15 on Orange Hotel and the National Museum, The Fugard precinct, the de Waterkant precinct and the Long Street area. “We are delighted to partner with an exciting project like this, especially as it is the first of its kind in Cape Town. Through this partnership we hope that this festival will become a permanent fixture on the Cape Town social calendar. First National Bank remains committed to supporting arts and culture in the Western Cape” says Stephan Claassen from FNB. “As a proudly South African bank, we are committed to grow our country in all its facets. Art plays a key role in that. We are also excited about what Cape Town has to offer, and want to promote that to the market out there. Joining forces with the Western Cape government, Eddy Cassar and various other partners gives us the opportunity to put this into action. “ The five acts contracted for the Festival include the following artists; • SA’s favourite comic, Marc Lottering and award winning pianist Godfrey Johnson in cabaret - St George Conference Room, Taj Hotel. Tickets R120 each. Book at Computicket. • The internationally acclaimed sell-out show, Faulty Towers the Dining Experience. An absolute masterpiece of which John Cleese would be proud – The Villa at the Cape Sun Hotel. Tickets cost R350 each and include a three course meal and two hour show.

SPRING TO ATTENTION KIRSTENBOSCH BOTANICAL GARDEN Spring is the most colourful time of year at Kirstenbosch. It falls in the months of September and October, although spring has an early start in the Cape and many species start flowering in August. The weather, although changeable with rain still likely, is mostly warm and sunny. The Namaqualand daisies and Vygies carpet large areas of the Garden, and the spring bulbs and many fynbos plants are in flower at this time of the year. Namaqualand daisies in all colours of the rainbow, dance in the breeze and follow the sun with open faces. You will see Ursinia (yellow, orange), Dimorphotheca (white, orange), Felicia (blue), Arctotis (orange, cream, red, bronze), Senecio (purple, white) and Gazania (yellow, orange). Look closer to see many other annuals like the bokbaaivygies (Dorotheanthusbellidiformis) and the blue flax (Heliophilacoronopifolia) in amongst the daisies.

see the cool elegant arum lilies (Zantedeschiaaethiopica) and tall spikes of watsonias in the garden. To see the amazing variety and the beautiful shapes and colours of the Cape bulbs, including Moraea, Babiana, Sparaxis and Lachenalia, visit the Kay Bergh Bulb House in the Botanical Society Conservatory, where they are on display, safe from the ever hungry porcupines. Many fynbos plants are in flower, and this is an excellent time to see the pincushions (Leucospermumspp.) which enliven the Protea Garden with bright oranges, yellows, peach and red, some keeping going into early summer. You will also see many conebushes, (Leucadendron spp.), and proteas (Protea spp.) and a wide variety of other fynbos shrubs in flower.

Vygies (pronounced fay-gh-ease) transform into a kaleidoscope of iridescent colour: brilliant pinks, purple, magenta, yellow and white – just about every colour but blue. You can’t miss the bright oranges and yellows of Lampranthusaureus, yellows and reds of Drosanthemumspeciosumor the purples and pinks of Lampranthusroseus. Many bulbs flower in the spring. You are sure to

WILDLIFE ALL YEAR R 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.

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.

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



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.

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.

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).

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.

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.

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, thickskinned herbivore having one or two upright horns on the nasal bridge. Rhinoceros may refer to either black or white rhinoceros.


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.

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. 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. 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

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, rang-

ROUND ing 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.

RED This thrilling play explores the turbulent creative process of famous 20th Century American artist, Mark Rothko.Under the watchful gaze of his young assistant and the threatening presence of a new generation of artists, Rothko struggles to accept his growing riches and praise, which become his ultimate undoing. The audience is witness not only to his passionate and challenging discussion of making art, but also to its actual making – the action of stretching and priming canvasses and the visceral thrill of painting itself. Rothko insisted that he was not an abstractionist and that such a description was as inaccurate as labeling him a great colorist. His interest was “only in expressing basic human emotions – tragedy, ecstasy, doom and so on. And the fact that a lot of people break down and cry when confronted with my pictures shows that I

can communicate those basic human emotions. The people who weep before my pictures are having the same religious experience I had when I painted them. And if you, as you say, are moved only by their colour relationship, then you miss the point.”

TOURISM NEWS Capetonian elected to leadership of global body for sustainable tourism Capetonian Heidi van der Watt, founding member of the International Centre for Responsible Tourism – South Africa, has been elected to the Board of Directors of the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC). The GSTC is aimed at harnessing the power of tourism to grow local economies in ways that have more local people sharing in the economic benefits of tourism, and to better take care of natural resources, local people and cultures of destinations. The mandate of the GSTC ties in with the City of Cape Town’s sustained Responsible Tourism initiatives. Defined as ‘tourism that creates better places for people to live and better places to visit’, Responsible Tourism focuses on involving local people in decisions that affect their lives. This minimises the negative economic, environmental and social impacts of tourism, and encourages respect between tourists and hosts. “We understand that for Cape Town to be a great place to visit, it must first be a great place to live in. Fortunately, Cape Town has a good cluster of tourism businesses doing exemplary work for people, planet and profit. I would really like to put the sustainability stories of individual tourism businesses in our city on the world stage,” said van der Watt. “The election of Ms. van der Watt is great news for Cape Town. It is further proof of Cape Town’s leadership with regards to responsible and sustainability-focused tourism. Not to speak of incredible access to information, know-how and global marketing channels,” said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Tourism, Events and Mar-

SA tourism looks to emerging markets South Africa’s tourism sector is looking to emerging markets to boost arrivals and drive growth, Tourism Minister Marthinus van Schalkwyk said at the Global Tourism Economy Forum in Macau, China on Monday. The sector will focus specifically on attracting visitors from its BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India and China) partners as traditional tourism markets are still suffering the backlash of the global economic crisis. “While Europe stagnates, we in the emergingmarket economies are boosting global tourism flows and outbound spend,” Van Schalkwyk said, “By 2015, the emerging economies are expected to account for 40% of all global departures.” It is predicted that in the next decade, emergingmarket economies will contribute more to global economic growth than developed economies. “This global re-balancing, together with the spread of low-cost airlines, air space liberalisation, the removal of visa requirements and the growing popularity of online bookings, underscores that the extensive BRICS cooperation and partnership on travel and tourism among not only businesses but also governments offers boundless opportunities,” he said. South Africa’s tourism sector contributes 9% to the country’s gross domestic product, with 12-million international arrivals annually. Van Schalkwyk announced that it is the government’s goal to increase this number to 15-million by 2020. “The

new growth will depend heavily on our marketing investment in China, Brazil and India.” China, in particular, represents a growing market for South Africa, with double-digit growth in tourist arrivals in 2011. “When the tourism industry talks about emerging destinations and source markets, Africa is often ignored,” Van Schalkwyk said, “As a destination, the splendour of [the] continent’s natural riches and the warmth of [the] people create many truly unique experiences.” Source: SAinfo reporter

South africans encouraged to take a break South Africa’s National Tourism Month was officially launched this morning at the Getaway Show by Tourism Minister Marthinus van Schalkwyk. At the Tourism Month 2012 that was launched at The Getaway Show in Johannesburg the message from Minister of Tourism Marthinus van Schalkwyk is clear – South Africans must be encouraged to travel their own country to get a better understanding of the incredible (and affordable) experiences on their doorstep. Van Schalkwyk pointed out that domestic tourism is a major driver of South Africa’s economic growth and contributed R20,2-billion to the national economy last year. ‘When domestic tourism grows, we create a nation of tourism ambassadors who are knowledgeable and speak positively about our destination, who warmly welcome foreign tourists, and are helpful when they meet visitors. Well-travelled locals can easily and confidently recommend to both foreign tourists and fellow South Africans the best places to visit in South Africa for the best local experiences,’ he said. At the launch, the minister announced the release of nearly 2,5-million special offers available to the South African public during September – aimed at making local holidays affordable and accessible. ThulaniNzima, CEO of South African Tourism, is thrilled at the variety of the special offer travel vouchers available to South Africans and said the industry had certainly come to the party in terms of giving substantial discounts on attractions and activities during Tourism Month. In an interview with a local radio station, Nzima said: ‘It’s very important that we encourage South Africans to travel South Africa like tourists in their own country. It is also important that we extend the very same experiences that millions who come to South Africa for, year in and year out. We want to show that South Africa is affordable for them to go to on holiday without having to take a plane and go elsewhere.’

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.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.

The South African Gold Coin Exchange (SAGCE) has been a household name in the coin industry in South Africa since 1972. They are the largest distributor of gold investment, bullion and collectable coins in South Africa. Outlets can be found at: Cape Town International Airport: International Departures, Domestic Departures and Central Terminal, Tyger Valley Mall - Bellville, Canal Walk Shopping Centre - Century City, Cavendish Square - Claremont, Tyger Valley Mall - Bellville and Somerset Mall - Somerset West.

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

ING 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:// 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.

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.

OSTRICH LEATHER & MOHAIR Ostrich leather is the result of tanning skins taken from African ostriches farmed for their feathers,

In 2003, Karoo Classics opened in Cape Town and five years later in Franschhhoek. Today they have the world’s largest selection of ostrich leather goods, carrying over 1000 handbags alone.

Lifesize replicas of the famous diamonds that have adorned royalty, the rich and the famous are also on display.

Built in 1905, the old City Hall in Darling Street is a mixture of Italian Renaissance and British colonial architecture. It is located on the Grand Parade to the west of the Castle of Good Hope and is built from honey-colored limestone imported from Bath in England. The 60m/200ft high bell-tower, with a carillon installed in 1923, was modeled on London’s Big Ben. The City Hall was the last major Victorian building to be erected in Cape Town. The City Hall’s carillon was installed as a WW1 war memorial, with 22 additional bells being added in 1925 with the visit of the Prince of Wales. Magnificent and imposing, the City Hall commemorates Kind Edward VII and Queen Alexandra, with its mosaic floors, marble staircase, stained glass windows and specially designed organ with 3165 pipes.

THE DRILL HALL AND CENTRAL LIBRARY The foundations of the City Hall were laid on 29th August 1900, and the building finally opened on 25th July 1905, by the Mayor Alderman Hyman Lieberman. It is built in an Italian Renaissance Style with a classical facade in a handsome campanile towering to a height of some 200ft.

Avoid grand displays of expensive jewelry, cameras, lap tops and other valuables. Plan your route beforehand, and the type of transport you're going to use. Keep your doors locked at all times and wind windows up. Lock valuable items in the trunk of your car. Be aware of whether any vehicle or people are following you. Never pick up strangers, no matter how friendly they appear. At night, park in well-lit areas Explore in groups rather than alone, and stick to busy, well-lit streets At night stay clear of dark, isolated areas Avoid isolated beaches.
