Top 5 south africa experiences in ManAboutWorld gay travel magazineThese are the top 5 Cape Town experiences from our Australia correspondents John Walker and Gavin Patterson who visited last year.

Table Mountain Cablecar 

Carried to the top of this spectacular mountain by a state of the art revolving cable car, this iconic vantage point allows visitors to drink in the unsurpassed vistas of Cape Town’s breathtaking coastline. Free guided tours present an informative overview of the fascinating flora and fauna. Weather permitting, you might choose an abseiling adventure or a hike for your return journey

Gold 

Offering a traditional theatre restaurant experience in the heart of the De Waterkant district, Gold is a memorable evening of melodic tribal voices, colourful costumes, striking masks, and rhythmic folk dance. A visit here includes a selection of African foods, interactive performances and face painting by the friendly and attentive staff, offering exceptional photo opportunities.

Bo Kaap Street Tour

The pastel, candy coloured houses are the main feature of this photogenic quarter of the city. Our local guide Shiralene revealed a personal history of the descendants of the Cape Malay, muslim slaves, who settled here after emancipation in the early 19th century. We were treated to a traditional dinner in a family home as part of our tour. A unique experience not to be missed.

District 6 Museum and Company Gardens

If the fascinating and sometimes sordid history of Cape Town is your interest, don’t miss the tour of District 6 Museum recounted by locals who grew up during the time when thousands of people from this area were forcibly relocated under apartheid laws. 1n 1994 this museum became a place for reflection and contemplation of discrimination and injustice.

Cape Town Gay Bars

There is something for all tastes in this vibrant gay scene. Your night will be off to a great start with a meal at the Manhattan Club or a burger at Beefcakes before a more serious selection from some of the cheekiest nightclubs on offer. Crew Bar provides a shot of shirtless staff fraternisation while Versatile Bar offers a semi-naked tryst with patrons stripping to their bare essentials.
