Cape Town

South Africa

A mother of a city!

The Mother City doesn’t scrimp when it comes to things to see and do. World-class dining, natural beauty, endless sunny days and adventures at every turn: you’d be hard pressed to find another city that packs so much into 1,000 square miles.

Like Sydney or San Francisco, it’s got that arty, boho thing going on. Tourists tend to flock to the Waterfront. But you’re more likely to find Capetonians in the bars and cafes on Kloof Street than partying at Camps Bay. 

First timers will probably want to penguin spot on Boulders Beach, take the cable car up Table Mountain, visit Robben Island or barter for a carved giraffe in Green Market Square. Scratch a bit deeper and you’ll see a very different side. Visit the Old Biscuit Mill in Woodstock, where some of SA’s most talented creatives hang out, celebrate local cuisine at Oranjezicht City Farm, or, if you’re lucky enough to be there on the first Thursday of the month, head to Bree Street (which, if you ask us, has overtaken Camps Bay as the city’s coolest strip). You’ll see art galleries open in the evening, secret gin bars appear behind chocolate shops and the streets spring into life.

Tearing yourself away from the Atlantic Seaboard may feel like a wrench, but it’s worth it if you want to see the true face of Cape Town. And if you’d like us to give you a hand coming up with the ultimate itinerary, just ask.
