Miracle Kidz Safe House Comedy Fundraiser 2020

The Miracle Kidz Safe House Annual Comedy Fund-raiser has become a popular event on our calendar since its inception two years ago.

However, with the arrival of Covid-19, we, as have so many others, been presented with a unique set of challenges in being unable to host this year’s event in a public venue. This means that for the first time all of our international friends and supporters can join us for our 2020 Comedy Video Live Streaming Fund-Raiser.

That’s right, folks, Miracle Kidz Safe House Annual Comedy Charity Event is going global!

Dinner and a movie at The Pepper Club Hotel

The Neighbourgoods Market is back

Popular with tourists and locals, the Neighbourgoods Market in Salt River is simply known as The Biscuit Mill market, and serves up fresh products and delectable gourmet goodies every Saturday. The Biscuit Mill will be re-opening the Saturday market on 1 August under a new directive. They will present a freshly curated, producer-oriented trading community in a revamped, safe and accommodating environment. Expect a convenient and streamlined shopping experience.



South Africa moved from lockdown alert level 4 to level 3 on 1 June 2020. The minister of tourism announced that at this level hiking is allowed. However, hiking must be done in compliance with excising guidelines –  between 06:00 and 18:00 every day and not in groups.

Go for a scenic drive

The city has some of the most amazing roads, which wind around the mountains and offer stunning sea views.

If you stop on your drive to take in the view, abide by lockdown regulations: wear your mask in public and maintain a physical distance of at least 1.5 metres.

Here are a few drives you can take to really soak up the splendour of Cape Town.

Buy a meal from your favourite eatery

No more slaving over a hot stove. During level three of the lockdown, restaurants are open! That means you can  have food delivered to your door, get a take away, or enjoy a meal inside your favourite restaurant.

These restaurants are open during lockdown level 3.
