We’ve all been there come month-end, where two-minute noodles become the main staple in our diets while we count our pennies and wince at our bank balances. To avoid missing out on some good times before pay day, we’ve come up with five of the best things to do in Cape Town when you’re broke.

RIDE A CAMEL IN KOMMETJIE

An ideal (and cheap) time out from life’s financial strains.
