Two Tsogo Sun Cape Town hotels turn 20

Two of Tsogo Sun’s iconic Cape Town hotels – Southern Sun The Cullinan and Southern Sun Waterfront Cape Town are celebrating two decades of excellence this year in September, with events, special offers, commemorative food and beverage experiences and visits down memory lane.

Southern Sun Waterfront Cape Town opened as Holiday Inn Waterfront Cape Town in July 1998, and The Cullinan opened a few months later that year. John van Rooyen, Tsogo Sun Operations Director – Cape Region, says, “We’re celebrating both birthdays in September as it falls between the hotels’ actual opening months, but more importantly, it is Tourism month, and our hotels have always been an integral part of the city’s excellent tourism offering.” Tsogo Sun’s contributions to the local tourism industry include partnerships with major cycle tours, marathons, and cultural events such as the Cape Town Carnival, Cape Town Cycle Tour and Two Oceans Marathon.

Southern Sun Waterfront Cape Town has 537 rooms and Southern ..

As the winter chill fades and the days get longer, make sure you get your hands on a ticket for the Sunset Bus.

The Sunset Bus route
The bus leaves in the early evening from the V&A Waterfront, and the only stop is at the summit of Signal Hill. The tour winds its way along the Atlantic coastline at a leisurely pace, in true Capetonian style. It then starts the slow climb to Signal Hill, along a stunning elevated route that offers incredible views of the Atlantic Ocean. As the sun sinks to meet the water, the tour arrives at it’s stop, where you can disembark for a sundowner picnic.

Abandoned springbok and ostrich become friends at Aquila

An unlikely friendship started between an adorable baby springbok and a little ostrich when they were both abandoned by their mothers. They were both taken in by Divan Grobler, the Conservation Manager at Aquila Private Game Reserve and Spa.

One day, roughly 4 weeks ago, he stumbled upon a newly born springbok and waited for the little bok’s mom to return, but she never did. He then began hand-rearing the sprightly little antelope, who so happens to be the national animal of South Africa.

Sometime later, and much to Groblers surprise, an ostrich chick was also found abandoned and wandering all alone. He then took the small bird in and has been caring for the pair ever since.

Aquila Head Ranger, Memory Khumalo, explains that mothers often abandon their young if they feel they are too weak to survive, but he says they will do their best to make sure the “little nuggets” survive.

Why you should visit Aquila Private Game Reserve this spring

Aquila Private Game Reserve is one of the only places near Cape Town where visitors can see the Big Five (lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and Cape Buffalo). It’s a luxurious have for overnight stays, and makes for a fantastic day trip too. But there can’t be a better time than spring (September – November) to experience the true magic of Aquila.

Spring at Aquila is baby season
Spring is the time of new life, and Aquila is no exception. The rainy winter has left the landscape lush and green, and wildflowers dot the fields. It’s also the birthing season, and your chances of meeting the newest members of Aquila’s herds are at a peak. Earlier this year, Aquila welcomed a baby hippo to its animal community. August saw a new arrival in the Cape Buffalo herd, making waves in the reserve among visitors—human and animal alike! The baby buffalo was greeted by each female zebra over the course of an hour, like a new born royal.

Good news for conservation
Aquila is thrilled to see new life at the..
