5 Creative Cape Town Places to Propose
Planning to pop the question? Not sure where to go or what to do? This post will go over 5 creative Cape Town based marriage proposal ideas.
Perhaps a cheesy choice but its popularity as a proposal destination is certainly justified. Table Mountain actually has a lot to offer beyond just basking in the view from up top. You can take the cable car up and back. This cost within the range of R200 – R250 per person. If at the top we suggest taking a 15 min walk away from all the tourists. Another option is to hike up and use the cable car getting back. This gives you plenty of time to pop the question.
If you more adventures you can abseil down a cliff from R750 per person. You can find out more about abseiling on Table Mountain from Abseil Africa. The Table Mountain abseiling operates daily, weather permitting, between 10am and 3pm. Each experience last about 45 min to an hour.
Cape Agulhas is the southern tip of Africa, located about 2 hours outside the CBD. SA Venues has listed some of the things you can do while in the area. We suggest heading down to a wine estate for some wine tasting follow by a trip to the beach to propose. There are a variety of places to stay near the area too should you want to plan a little weekend getaway.
Cruise / Boat Trip
Take advantage of Cape Towns beaches and beautiful ocean views with a boat trip. You are spoilt for choice when it comes to what type of boats to go on. Yacoob Yachts offer hour long scheduled group trips between the morning till sunset from their range of boats. These scheduled trips range from R100 – R300 per person. They also offer private trips from R2500 per hour. Create a marriage proposal to remember as you go down on one knee at sea with Cape Town and Table Mountain as the backdrop.
Iziko South African Museum and Planetarium
Look forward to making your own history together at the Iziko Museum. The planetarium has shows running through the year. You can view their currently playing schedule online. We suggest a trip to the planetarium followed by a walk around the museum before explaining to your partner how they mean the world to you and then propose.
The Cape Point
Magnificent views overlooking the ocean with South Africans most powerful lighthouse. Cape Point has 7 750 hectares of flora and fauna with over 250 bird species. The Flying Dutchman Funicular offered at Cape Point saves you from a long uphill walk to see the old lighthouse and enjoy the panoramic views at R55. We suggest taking the ride up together, exploring the area, perhaps getting a bite to eat at the Two Oceans Restaurant before proposing. You can find out more about Cape Point and what they have to offer online.
It does not matter where you are or how you pop the question. We all know the most important thing is getting that ‘yes’. Hopefully this post has got you thinking about how you can make your proposal more unique and interesting.
