When you become a volunteer for Dreams To Reality in Cape Town, not only will you be working at a reliable volunteer organisation where you will have the opportunity to help those who need it most, but you will also have plenty of free time which you can fill up with fun activities. Cape Town is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world for a reason. This beautiful city has a multitude of exhilarating, breathtaking, relaxing and exciting outdoor activities that you can take advantage of while volunteering.
Picnic at Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens or the Company Gardens
Kirstenbosch Botanic Gardens has a world-renowned botanical garden and offers breathtaking views of Table Mountain as well as walks as talk and an abundance of picnic spots in the sun or shade. In the summer months, they also have sunset music concerts that makes for a fun picnic outing.
In the middle of Cape Town is the Company Gardens, a beautiful public space which was originally created to feed the first colonisers. It is close to some museums and other historical sites in the city.
Hike up Table Mountain
Capetonians love staying active and hiking up Table Mountain is the perfect way to spend your Saturday. There are numerous beautiful trails that volunteers can explore and the breathtaking views once you reach the top makes every step worth it!
Paraglide off Lion’s Head
Experience the freedom and elation of soaring down Lion’s Head. Tandem paragliding offers a specialist team with two harnesses for all who wish to explore the Cape skies and soar like birds around Lions Head before landing on Camps Bay beach for sundowners.
Shark Cage Diving
For those volunteers who are feeling adventurous, shark cage diving is a thrilling experience. It launches on the slipway at Kleinbaai Harbour, and offers close interaction with Great White Sharks, the world’s largest predatory fish that reaches over 6 metres in length. An exhilarating and extraordinary experience for anyone who wishes to come face-to-face with one of nature’s greatest creatures.
Swim at Clifton Beach
Cape Town has some of the most beautiful white, sandy beaches in the world. Clifton is about ten minutes away from the city. The cold Atlantic Ocean makes taking a dip a rejuvenating experience and during the summer months, Clifton’s shores are taken over by African drum enthusiasts, capoiera players and fire dancers.
