Crystal Hefner, widow of Playboy Magazine founder Hugh Hefner, has been spotted enjoying the Mother City and taking in the majestic view of Table Mountain recently. She stayed at the Queen Victoria Hotel at the V&A Waterfront and made sure she took in all the attractions.

Crystal posted her adventures in Cape Town on her blog and was clearly gobsmacked by the beauty of the city. She also touched on the water crisis and urged visitors to be water conscious during their stay.

“After checking out Table Mountain from below I knew it was time to go up and see the view from the top. This was such an incredible day activity. They have cable cars that take you to the top and from there you can soak in Cape Town in it’s entirety.

“Such an incredible time. Cape Town has a lot to offer but at the same time are facing a serious drought. All visitors have to be very water conscious… changing sheets and towels as rarely as possible, turning taps off when you brush your teeth, and keeping showers under a minute. There is a company I donated to called Gift of the Givers who are distributing water bottles to those in need and digging boreholes bear schools and hospitals,” she said.

Her husband, the infamous Hugh, died in September 2017 at the age of 91 after suffering a massive heart attack. The couple were married in 2012.
