Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Cape Town

Skydive Cape Town
While throwing yourself out of a plane might not sound like everyone's idea of a day out, Skydive Cape Town is at-hand for true adrenaline junkies.
Cabrinha
Cabrinha may sound like a Brazilian cocktail, but it offers top-quality lessons and equipment in one of the best kitesurfing spots in the world.
Glasshouse Rejuvenation
As Cape Town's only sophisticated men-only spa, Glasshouse Rejuvenation for Men is where the city's most discerning chaps come to groom and get themselves looking gorgeous.
Jiva Grande Spa
Jiva Grande Spa Great is famed for bringing Ayurvedic treatments to the Cape, providing a calm, traquil space within the hustle and bustle of the city.
SA Motorcycle Tours
Specialising in BMW bikes, SA Motorcycle Tours will send you speeding around in style.
Gary’s Surf School
Great for both beginner and advanced surfers, Gary's Surf School will have you riding a crest in no time.
One&Only Spa
You can bet your bottom Rand that a spa with One&Only in the name is going to be good - and this outpost exceeds expectations.
Kaskazi Kayak
Kaskazi Kayak offers guided tours along the Seaboard with two-hour trips or longer.
Abseil Africa
If you're not quite comfortable with throwing yourself off a cliff attached to a bungee, then ease yourself in by abseiling down it at a slightly slower, more controlled pace.
Atlantic Adventures
'Scream if you wanna go faster' seems to be the motto at Atlantic Adventures, which offers excursion at breakneck speeds.
Sanctuary Spa
Styled to mimic an underground cave, Sanctuary Spa receives mixed reactions thanks to its choice of aesthetics; that said, treatments are to-die-for.
Frixion Adventures
Cliff-jumping and kloofing; only the brave need apply.
Cape Sidecar Adventures
See Cape Town from the view of a sidecar; odd but undeniably cool.
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.
White Shark Projects
White Shark Projects offers the kind of up-close-and-personal dives that would have most of us wetting our trunks; once-in-a lifetime opportunities to see this misunderstood creatures in their stunning habitat.
