Get your Cape Town Sparkle on with a choice of colourful Events and Entertainment this February 2018

Plentiful sunshine and summery temperatures set the Cape Town stage – with Table Mountain as her backdrop, of course – for outdoor festivals, music, sport and thrilling entertainment under velvety evening skies.

When booking your Waterland Lodge stay, make sure you don’t miss out on the fun this February! 

Pack a picnic – or add a pre-packed picnic to your ticket purchase – and sit under the stars for a big screen movie night featured out of doors. Catch ‘Mama’ on the 23rd February showing at the Castle of Good Hope; ‘The Lion King’ on the 28th February showing at Kirstenbosch Gardens or hold out for ‘The Wedding Crashers’ at the V&A Waterfront.
