"I love driving into Cape Point Nature Reserve — you can explore the tidal pools, you can have picnics on the beautiful white sand beaches. There's the odd surf spot too if you're feeling super adventurous. There's something so special about seeing the wildlife on the beach. It's one of the few places where I've seen zebras, ostriches and antelope just roaming along the sand."
The Village Hub
Restaurant and deli2 Watsonia Ln, Scarborough, Cape Town, 7975, South Africa
"The Village Hub in Scarborough is one of my favourite lunch spots. It has a restaurant, Sopra, and the Foragers Deli, which has produce from the surrounding areas, whether it be cheese or fresh herbs and organic vegetables. They have some really great dips and sauces, and their bakery is absolutely delicious. For lunch, I really enjoy the pizzas."
