Kalk Bay's sea breeze and eclectic shops: a self-guided audio tour

Cape Town

The route is primarily along the Main Road of Kalk Bay heading South and highlights my personal favourites, from the shops that fascinate me to my favourite eateries. To keep my visitors "on their toes" we do a bit of zig-zagging from left to right of the Main Road as we head South and I encourage you to stop and visit whatever you fancy along the route. Kalk Bay is a mix of shops - vintage and clothing, art and collectables and great restaurants with stunning sea views. We also explore some nooks and crannies and take a short walk through a part of residential Kalk Bay for a breather and new views and perspectives. My advice is to not rush it and really savour every sight, taste and smell with lots of stops on the way. This is a self-guided audio tour. Please download the tour through the VoiceMap app while you're in a wifi zone to enjoy full offline access. The tour is ready when you are, so all that's left to do is hit "Start tour".

Cape Town's original shoreline: a self-guided audio tour

Cape Town

Over the centuries, natural and historical events and extensive development have obscured Cape Town's original shoreline. This has influenced the city’s history and reconfigured the shape of the land that meets the water. And yet, it is a line rich with history, and contains layers of stories that have long been suppressed, overlooked, or left to lie in dusty drawers and family folklore. This self-guided audio tour retraces the original shoreline, from the first making of the land to the present day – and beyond it, into the lessons changes to sea level hold for our future.

Salt River Street Art: A Self-Guided Audio Tour

Cape Town

Walk the streets of Woodstock/Salt River on this self-guided audio tour and discover beautiful street art pieces from world-renowned local and international artists. On this tour, you'll look beyond the wall and see the impact of public art on the community, on the kids, on the artists. Public art, street art and murals have a direct impact on creating jobs for artists, tour guides, little shops, and an even more powerful indirect impact. It creates a safer and cleaner neighbourhood and more cohesion and inclusion among the residents. Because behind each wall there is an educational message, it opens debates and learning about world issues. Please Note: We recommend taking the tour in daylight, with a friend, and sticking to busy times, when there is plenty of activity in the neighbourhood. Be vigilant: don’t flash expensive items, keep an eye on the people around you, and be a little wary of strangers.
