4 Things We Love About Cape Town

Sitting at the base of the gorgeous Table Mountain, Cape Town couldn’t possibly fail to shape up to its mountainously impressive nature. With penguin colonies, gorgeous beaches, a harbour and fantastic shopping under its African belt, Cape Town is one almighty destination.

The top five things we LOVE about Cape Town are:

1. Table Mountain

The top dog of Western Cape, Table Mountain sits pretty at 3500ft above sea level, making it the perfect place to look down upon this fabulous city. You can get to the top of Table Mountain via cable car or by trusty main power (your legs may not thank you for the extensive work out though!) and the views are top notch.

2. Muizenberg Beach

A surf haven and the home of our ‘Surf and Community volunteers’ project. Imagine a gorgeous, white sandy beach and you won’t be far wrong, and with waves that host the world's best surfing competitions, you know you’re in the right place to catch the crafty current!

3. Boulders Beach

the home of the penguins! Located about 45 minutes south from central Cape Town, Boulders hosts up to 3000 penguins a season. Watch them waddle their way through this sandy haven, and remember to bring your camera- they’ll be plenty of opportunities to catch the perfect snap!

4. Shopping

the V&A waterfront is the place to head! Set at the foot of Table Mountain and surrounded by Cape Town’s harbour, explore everything that Cape Town has to offer retail therapy-wise in the stunning surroundings, you may just pick up a few pieces to take home too!

 

So, we reckon Cape Town's the place to be! If you're like us and want to head out there now, check out our Sub-Saharan Africa trips
