Wheel of Excellence, Cape Town.

Last weekend I took my parents on the Wheel of Excellence at the V&A Waterfront. I’d been up once before during the 2010 FIFA World Cup, in the evening rain, clad from head to toe in Football Supporters gear, and loved it! But it was time for a revisit and being on a Waterfront focussed date with my parents offered the perfect opportunity.

The wheel is a lovely addition to Cape Town and the views across the city towards both the Atlantic Ocean and Table Mountain, are breathtaking. Its pretty substantial too, offering 30 fully enclosed air conditioned cabins which reach a height of 40 metres above the ground. The trip lasts 12-15 minutes and takes you on 4 revolutions.  Really good value too @ R80.00 per adult, R60.00 for pensioners and R40.00 for children. Everybody should do this at least once – or twice.

If you’re felling flush and enjoy a touch of spoiling, consider booking theVIP Gondola which takes 4 adults and a child. Cost is R800.00 and you get to stay on for half an hour with a bottle of sparkling wine. I like the sound of sipping on bubbles whilst breathing int he views …

Dad and Mom Bradnick. Who absolutely loved the experience.
