Looking for a city break? But want to think a little greener? Then head to Cape Town. Breathe in that fresh mountain air with a hike up Table Mountain, stop for lunch at the Oude Molen Eco Village, which comes with its own organic garden, stables and farm café, and catch an eco-friendly Green Cab home. Still don’t feel as if you’ve done enough? Then why not plant a tree with the volunteers at Green Pop? It offers weekly planting sessions as well the annual Reforest Fest for families at a nearby national park. Stay: Table Bay Hotel. Mum and dad can take in the breathtaking views of the V&A Waterfront and Table Mountain from the rooftop pool, while the kids have fun learning African crafts and making some noise with African Instruments at Oscar’s Kids Club.
