on foot or by rental bike – all along the seafront with great public art , good coffee shops and awesome views like only Cape Town can supply . You can even include a dive in the I & J Ocean Exhibit at the Two Oceans Aquarium , where you can swim with the sharks and watch the people on the other side of the glass .
If supping sounds like too much hard work , you can take the scenic water taxi . This is a great trip on your own , but chances are you won ’ t have too much trouble persuading someone you love to fly in to join you for a day or two . If you push in to a weekend , have brunch at the Oranjezicht City Farm Market on Saturday morning , and if you ’ re in Cape Town at the beginning of the month , try to include a First Thursdays night-time trawl of the best downtown art galleries , studios , and music and food venues .
Durban – field of dreams
If you need to go to meetings in the city , it ’ s best to find a hotel along the Golden Mile overlooking the ocean . That way , when you have some free time , you can – literally – stroll across the road and you ’ re on the beach . Many hotels , like the Elangeni , for example , have rental bicycles , so you can pedal all the way along the promenade watching the surfers heading out to sea , and the whole parade of life that is Durban beachfront . If you ’ re feeling adventurous , you can learn to surf , SUP or kayak , or you can head down to uShaka Marine World to look at the fishies big and small .
Moses Mabhida Stadium is both beautiful and economically sustainable . Take a SkyCar tour for a bird ’ s-eye view of Durban or , if you ’ re feeling energetic , do a walking tour . And , if you ’ re feeling adventurous , do a bungee jump or big swing . Or do them all . You can organise trips and / or shuttles direct from your hotel .
If you plan your business trip for a Friday , you can get clever . It shouldn ’ t be hard to persuade your significant other to fly down on Friday night , and you can move into one of the lovely oceanfront hotels on the North Coast for a seriously chilled weekend . It ’ s a super-quick shuttle back to the airport from there , so you could leave on Monday morning and be back in the office at nine .
Joburg – one incredible thing before breakfast
One of the best things about going to Joburg on business is that you probably won ’ t need to rent a car . The Gautrain will get you right into Sandton , and you can probably walk – or definitely Uber – to wherever you have to go . And then , if you want to do something incredible before breakfast – either on your own , with a significant other , or even with a client or colleague – Bill Harrop ’ s Original Balloon Safaris will pick you up long before the sparrows emerge from REM sleep , and whisk you off to the Magaliesberg where you can clutch a warm cup of something while you watch the balloons being inflated , and then float off into the dawn . Upon landing , you ’ ll be fed a sumptuous breakfast – but best you pass up on the bubbly
