Shared Interest Groups
It’s so much easier to make friends when you have interests in common, therefore we have many Interest Groups with monthly meetings/outings to come along to. Whether your passion is visiting beautiful gardens; galleries & exhibitions, Jazz Clubs or wine farms we have something for everyone.
Art & Design
Every few weeks we seek out a venue or attend an event with an art or design angle. From Street Art to World Class Galleries, to Architectural Gems, there is something for every aesthetic.
Outings with a garden theme! No green fingers required. We visit botanical gardens, nature reserves, landscape attractions, beautiful historic gardens and even city gardens.
Explore Art-themed Interactive Activities inspired & organised by fellow members. Only join in if you’re prepared to organise one yourself!
What is the hospitality industry really about? What lies behind the mirrors and glass doors, the neat uniforms and the chef’s caps, the clinking wine bottles and the beautifully arranged food on your plate? Join us to find out!
Keep your finger on the pulse of the vibrant Cape Town Jazz Scene.
Whether Blockbusters or Indie, join fellow film buffs for new and interesting movies every month at a variety of venues across the city.
Tourist around Town
How often are we a tourist in our Home Town? We visit some of the more regular tourist spots or have fun discovering something new or hidden. Whether you are from overseas or a local tourist, it doesn’t matter, we enjoy discovering places of common interest, together.
Cape Town is the wine capital of Southern Africa. We explore vineyards in all parts of the Cape area, enjoying every aspect of what our wine farms have to offer.
Fun & Fitness Groups
Whether it’s walking & hiking in our beautiful Cape, shimmying to Latin sounds with Zumba Class or brushing up on your rusty racquet skills, it’s always more fun with friends!
If hiking and mountains frighten you a little but you like the idea of exploring outside, then join the gentler Walking Club. They meet at the same venue as the hikers and walk a different route.
Cape Town has many different trails and hikes. This group explores the wonderful beauty of Cape Town’s natural environment. Fitness requirement – reasonable hiking abilities.
We play on Monday mornings in Newlands. It is a very social tennis with the emphasis on having FUN!
Zumba is an exercise fitness program that combines Latin and international music with dance moves. Zumba routines incorporate interval training - alternating fast and slow rhythms - to help improve cardiovascular fitness. No experience is necessary, just a willingness to try your best! The Zumba group is open to all levels and is more about having fun, catching up with each other and moving our bodies to stay healthy rather than perfect dance moves!
We have vibrant Italian & Spanish Conversation groups who meet regularly to chat together in their own Mother Tongue. Great for those who miss speaking their own language.
Italian Conversation Group
Not a beginners club – but definitely a perfect opportunity to practice your skills if you have a basic grasp of the language.
Spanish Conversation Group
This is a casual social event for native Spanish speakers and those with a working knowledge of the language and culture to converse. Not a beginners club – but definitely a perfect opportunity to practise your skills if you have a basic grasp of the language.
French Conversation Group
A group for those members interested in brushing up on their French conversation skills in a fun environment.
German Conversation Group
Join this diverse group of German speaking members for coffee and friendship.
And Then There’s Food
We all know bonding around a table over coffee & cake or a sumptuous lunch is the best way to make lasting friendships, either at home with the One Dish Club or out and about at one of our abundance of excellent restaurants & cafés with the Coffee Around Cape Town, or the Friday & Sunday Lunch Clubs.
Coffee Around Cape Town
There are so many wonderful, quirky and interesting coffee shops hidden away in Cape Town. We seek them out and invite you to sit down for a morning cuppa and maybe something decadent to eat … and enjoy a friendly catchup.
One Dish Club
As the name suggests, your hostess serves a small group of guests a “one dish” lunch at her home. Venues are different every month ensuring we visit all parts of Cape Town.
Friday Lunch Club
Each month we visit a different restaurant or bistro in and around Cape Town. We seek out the venues that offer something special in the line of food or atmosphere – or both!
Sunday Lunch Club
Each of our Sunday lunches is held at a different luncheon venue around Cape Town, ranging from restaurants on the seafront to interesting bistro’s in town and even to picnics under the trees in one of our beautiful wine farms.
Explore exciting cuisine from all over the world presented by members of the club in their own homes.
Cultural Exchange Pop-Ups
An opportunity to learn about other cultures from fellow members and International Clubs Around the World.

Up for Something Cerebral?

This fascinating, fast-moving and fun game of Chinese origin would appeal to the quick-thinking and competitive. They play every Tuesday.
No knowledge of music required for this club activity – only an interest to learn. Lead by our resident musicologist, this is an introduction to all types of music. The date is secured and announced every month.
Journeys of exotic destinations and exclusive travelling around the world.
We have four active book clubs in different geographic areas of Cape Town each on a different day in the month so if reading is your hobby.
