Rocking The Daisies This Weekend

Rocking The Daisies and Rocking The Gardens both kick off this weekend in Cape Town on cloof Wine Estate and Jo’burg’s Emmarentia Dam respectively, perhaps respective is the wrong word to describe a festival, although the organisers of RTD and RTG continue to take big bold steps each year towards minimising environmental impact and promoting green living:  “Play Hard, Tread Lightly” is their motto.

If you’re heading to either of these festivals this weekend try lift sharing or rent a people carrier to reduce your carbon footprint, in fact there are a bunch of people walking or running to the festival from Cape Town… certainly does attract all types.

If you would like to have the freedom to explore the area you are visiting independently, you might want to look into car hire Cape Town for the perfect set of wheels.
