021 asks Capetonians about their most memorable moment with nature: Sagess Kongo: Looking at the clouds settling on the mountain in Winter. Beautiful! Morne Crook: Going up Devil’s peak.

MOKENA MAKEKA on designing Cape Town

03/10/2013 - 18:21

Bernard Franz asks award-winning Mokena Makeka, the founder of Makeka Design Lab, for his take on Cape Town’s architecture. Firstly, how do you feel about our country’s architecture in general?

There hasn’t been a real vision about the public life of this country. It is mo... Read more

CITY SAFARI Going for the source of the Liesbeek - adventure in the city

04/10/2013 - 02:57

Today’s adventure travel is a lot about reaching peaks, personally and literally. Thousands clamber up Kilimanjaro or Mt Fuji to boast of catching a sunrise above the clouds. The fascination with reaching the top (and less so the dreary bit of having to schlepp back down again) differs from what pushed serious explorers in the 18th and 19th centuries in Africa. Their road to prestige and riches followed the course of a river rather than that of a towering peak, as they tried to discover its source and to link it with its mouth. It was the suc... Read more
