2. Picking strawberries in Stellenbosch

Have a bucket load of fun and enjoy the fruits of your own labor at Polkadraai Strawberry farm, in Stellenbosch where you can pick your own strawberries according to the bucket size you choose. While you’re there, be sure to check out the curio shop and farmstall next door. There’s also a food court, picnic spot, and pony rides for kids. What’s not to love?

3. Some screen time at the Labia Theatre

Catch a movie at The Labia Theatre on Orange; a uniquely quaint, retro-themed cinema with an old-world charm. You can have a few drinks on the terrace from their licensed bar, or enjoy while watching your movie. They have a great snack kiosk and also serve up some light meals at their café. With its ever-growing popularity, you may find that tickets sell out fast, so it’s best to book online to avoid disappointment.

They host a shark exhibit, one of many exhibits you won’t want to miss, which gives you an up-close and personal encounter with one of the most feared and misunderstood marine species.
