Premier’s Choice: 5 low cost Cape Town activities

Winter in Cape Town doesn’t always lend itself to outdoor activities, so we decided to go on a hunt for the best indoor activities. While reviewing and seeking out the best, we have compiled a short-and-sweet list of 5 of the best indoor activities that the whole family can enjoy (while suiting mom and dad’s pocket)!
