Our Cape Town Big 6 Partners are ready to honour and treat pensioners this August. As Groot Constantia Wine Estate continues celebrating its 334th birthday, the estate wants to give back this World Senior Citizen’s Day. To show appreciation for everything our grandparents have done, every Tuesday Groot Constantia Wine Estate is giving 50% off all Visitors Route Tickets for South Africans over 60 this August (6, 13, 20 and 27 August).

World Senior Citizen’s Day

World Senior Citizen’s Day was first proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly on 14 December 1990, and today it is celebrated around the world on 21 August as a special opportunity to recognise the contributions that older people make to society. As part of the Cape Town Big Six tourist destinations, Groot Constantia also wants to thank senior citizens for their contributions to South Africa.
