THE BIG FIVE IN CENTRAL CAPE TOWN

Time: 10:30 – 12:30
Cost: Members – R50; Non-members – R65
 
It’s been two centuries or more since any of the Big Five were spotted in central Cape Town – or has it?
A safari sets off on Sunday 21 September to show you the unlikely lairs of the wild beasts of old Africa, some of which survive to enthrall modern tourists. But there is much more: dragons and griffins, dogs and dolphins. Public art and building facades are perches and refuges for an astonishing variety of creatures.
 
Join us on a gentle expedition of about two hours – no palanquins or howdahs will be provided. Have some fun and dress the part with your pith helmet and butterfly net. Shoot if you must – but only with a camera. Just like the explorers of old, weather is no impediment.
 
Gather at the newly sited Cenotaph (corner Heeregracht/ Hertzog Boulevard) at 10:30 and Owen Kinahan will lead the meander to the Company’s Garden for lunch just after noon.
 
Booking and payment in advance is essential on all outings in order to secure your place as numbers are limited.
