Well, you could climb Table Mountain... I had clients who went with Riaan Vorster last month and they had a great time! https://www.facebook.com/riaan.vorster.7

What about taking a ride in a vintage sidecar of a classic 750 cc motorcycle and taking in the views and the vineyards?

A friend of mine did this and loved it.

Thanks for the suggestions unfortunately my other half doesn't drink alcohol so the winelands/sidecar trip would be abit wasted on him. I don't fancy hiking up table mountain, too much like hard.

Any other suggestions?

Hot air balloon trip over Paarl/the Winelands? Beautiful scenery.

Depends on the date of your birthday, but Sunday afternoon concert at Kirstenbosch followed by special meal at one of top restaurants. Alternatively there are some great boat cruises from the waterfront (and can be exclusive for just one couple - though might be quite expensive). How about afternoon tea at The Mount Nelson Hotel (though you won't want dinner afterwards). Just being in Cape Town is so special!!!

How about Para gliding - thats certainly different and some twin ladies who turned 70 just did it for their 70th. You dont go it alone. Not too sure where to tell you to look but i can try and find out if you are interested in that. Also a sunset cruise is beautiful if the weather is good. The boat goes from the waterfront to Clifton and you have drinks on the boar - its lovely and no hard work there. - mind you you dont drink so i suppose you can have water but enjoy your cruise at sunset.

thankyou so much everyone - you've come up with some ideas. I'd better start doing some research. PS the birthday girl does drink it's just the other half who doesn't!!
