If you only have two days to spend in Cape Town, you need to make them count. You have to see the sights, taste the food and experience the magic of Table Mountain. Don’t let a tight budget hold you back. Johannesburg-based writer Iga Motylska has put together the ultimate 48-hour itinerary of free activities in the Mother City for her Eager Journeys blog.

With free city walking tours, hikes up Table Mountain and breakfasts at local markets to choose from, you are sure to have a memorable, inexpensive weekend. The best part is that you don’t even have to plan where to enjoy lunch – Eager Journeys’s fun-filled itinerary points you in the right direction. Start Saturday with a park run through Green Point, visit the Bo-Kaap to take some photos, and end the day watching the sunset from Signal Hill. It only gets better from there!
