A party in Sea Point

ELC Social Programme

Cape Town is full of great places to see and things to do.  At ELC we have a dedicated Social Programme Coordinator, who schedules a number of trips and activities every week which are displayed on this page, and on the notice board where students can sign up to attend.  If students have ideas, or if there is anything they think we should be doing and places we should be going, we encourage them to talk to us and let us know so we can make sure they make the most of their stay in Cape Town.

As a UCT student you are also welcome to attend a wide range of UCT events and public lectures.  This includes theatre performances and art exhibitions run by our neighbouring departments on Hiddingh Campus.

Intaka Island with Intaka Island Guide

June 10 @ 1:50 pm - 4:10 pm

On this Language Excursion we visit Intaka Island – Century City’s own award-winning 16 hectare wetlands and bird sanctuary. It is home to over 200 species of indigenous fynbos plants and over 120 bird species. Intaka – which means ‘bird’ in isiXhosa – is a unique example of nature conservation and urban development co-existing in harmony.
