CITY WALK SATURDAY’S
Cape Town inner city has become part of the Big 7, joining the top tourist attractions such as, Cape Point, Robben Island, Groot Constantia, Table Mountain, Kirstenbosch and the V&A Waterfront. The Big 7 City Walk connects the city by bringing the public spaces to life, and offering organised walking tours.
The monthly City Walk Saturdays event is scheduled to continue every third Saturday of the month from 10h00 – 14h00, right through winter, and will take place next, on the 20 June. It is an opportunity for community and creative projects to use the public space of the inner city to showcase their work, using their collective presence to draw citizens into the city, in turn allowing Capetonians to reimagine what our urban environment can be.
Enjoy live performances, giant jenga, chalk-drawing and other interactive games with your family and friends. Taj Cape Town is the perfect base from which to enjoy a special offering on the day, explore authentic Cape Town and experience the new City Walk route.
