Other activities

Visit Lookout Hill

Climb the platform build on the largest sand dune on the Cape Flats. This is the area where many coloured and black townships were created during South Africa’s apartheid era. From Lookout Hill one has a breath taking view over Khayelitsha, the Cape Flats and Table Mountain in the distance.

Visit Mzoli’s

Mzoli’s Place started as a butchery with a “shisa nyama”,  a local term used to describe an informal barbecue at a butchery, but has expanded to include live entertainment, music and a bar. If you are on the lookout for the latest and hottest South African acts, then Mzoli’s Place is your destination. Well-known DJs and bands regularly play there and it is the after-party venue for many of the cultural happenings in Cape Town.

Go out at Ace, the popular dancing place

Ace is where Khayelitshans braai and drink, every day of the week. The club itself is modern and always has a flat screen TV on. On Mondays, they braai up a full sheep on a spit, Wednesdays is a fish braai and ladies night and the club is generally packed between Friday and Sunday.


Visit the Department of Coffee

Department of Coffee is South Africa’s first township based artisan coffee shop, located opposite the ever-busy Khayelitsha train station where you can pick up just about anything, from the latest hairstyle to braaied chicken feet! Department of Coffee brings coffee to the people, and even delivers at the local hospital, magistrate’s court, and Khayelitsha Mall.

Unwind at Khayelitsha Wetland Park

This wetlands area has a continuously growing ecosystem, which nurtures and conserves a range of species; both faunal and floral.
