Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Cape Town

Cape Bike
Get your adrenaline pumping and see the country surrounding Cape Town on the back of a serious Harley Davidson with Cape Bike Travel...
Newlands Cricket Ground
Newlands Cricket Ground is one of the most beautiful cricket stadiums in the world; stop, stare or spectate.
Drumbeat Charters
Drumbeat Charters offers seal-watching excursions that would melt even the hardest traveller's heart.
Day Trippers
Day Trippers offers guided bike tours of the city for those who think two wheels are better than four.
Coffeebeans Routes
City tours can all get a bit same-y but Coffeebeans Routes offers inventive itineraries that stray from the beaten path. Woohoo!
Downhill Adventures
Perfect for extreme sports beginners; whether you want a guided tour or some off-road solo cycling, organise an excursion or two with Dowhill Adventures.
La Dolce Vita Biking
La Dolce Vita Biking offers scooter rentals to those who wish to explore the city on two wheels.
Kaskazi Kayak
Kaskazi Kayak offers guided tours along the Seaboard with two-hour trips or longer.
Atlantic Adventures
'Scream if you wanna go faster' seems to be the motto at Atlantic Adventures, which offers excursion at breakneck speeds.
Long Street Baths
Despite somewhat shoddy changing rooms, Long Street Baths offers swimming pools and Turkish baths that more than make up for any shortcomings.
Frixion Adventures
Cliff-jumping and kloofing; only the brave need apply.
Hoerikwaggo Trail
The Hoerikwaggo Trail isn't exactly 'roughing it in the wild', but it's still recommended for enthusiastic hikers.
Enmasse
The concept is genius: remove the aura of pretentiousness and irritation of forward-planning from the contemporary Western spa routine, and instead offer massage as one of life's little necessities.
Hooked on Africa
Fall hook line and sinker for deep-sea fishing with Hooked on Africa.
Cape Sidecar Adventures
See Cape Town from the view of a sidecar; odd but undeniably cool.
Newlands Rugby Stadium
Newlands Rugby Stadium is the second-oldest of its kind in the world, and has been host to a number of international games during its time.
Sea Point Pavilion
Sea Point Pavilion is an Olympic-sized seawater swimming pool that's extremely popular with families. Chlorine is overrated anyway.
Armoury Boxing
Staying in shape is a priority amongst Capetonians-they have beaches and catwalks to prepare for. While there are loads of places to join the queue for the treadmill, this is easily the most authentic of gyms in Cape Town.
