V&A Waterfront


The highest traffic tourist destination in South Africa.

Situated at the foot of Table Mountain, within a stone’s throw from the Cape Town Stadium and in the heart of Cape Town’s working harbour, the V&A Waterfront offers the visitor an abundance of unforgettable experiences. Indoor shopping and entertainment venues seamlessly merge with ocean vistas and mountain views and the fresh sea breeze and warm African sun add zest to a cosmopolitan, vibrant atmosphere. More than 80 restaurants bring a fusion of international food, from rustic al fresco fish and chips to starched table-cloth cuisine.

What’s your mini bio?

I’ve worked in communications, marketing and strategy for over 20 years. I’m curious, driven and love learning. Some career highlights have been the reshaping of the great brand that’s the V&A; having a two year corporate work sabbatical on a luxury yacht learning about hospitality, the uber wealthy and parts of the world I’d never explored; being part of the launch of brands like eBucks and developing pioneering financial services products for the entry level market.
