City Sightseeing pays it forward 67 times for everyday heroes this Mandela Day

South Africans will be doing their part for Nelson Mandela International Day (Mandela Day) on 18 July and contributing 67 minutes of their time to community service in a bid to give back to society.

City Sightseeing, the company that runs the iconic red double decker buses in Cape Town and Johannesburg, will be doing its bit through an innovative giveaway that allows others to pay it forward in true “Madiba style”.

The concept behind this giveaway is that people can nominate someone they feel is deserving of an amazing day out. Nominations are open for that special friend who needs a break, the family down the road who have not been on holiday in years or even the granny in the local home that would love a trip around the city with her friends. All nominations will be collected via social media and the lucky recipients will be drawn on Mandela Day.

There are 67 sets of one-day double tickets up for grabs.

Gordon’s Bay one day itinerary

Gordon’s Bay is a sleepy seaside village just over half an hour from Cape Town. It offers a quiet, romantic beach retreat and some of the best sunsets you’ll ever see. Gordon’s Bay is about slowing down, skipping the crowds, and spending quality time exploring one of the best-kept secrets of the Western Cape. Here’s your guide to spending a day in Gordon’s Bay.

Start the day with a breakfast: you’re spoiled for choice. Many of the accommodation providers are bed and breakfasts, so if you’ve stayed the night you’ll be sorted for sustenance. If you’re driving from Cape Town, don’t skip Pyjamas and Jam Eatery in Strand, on the way to Gordon’s Bay.
