Usually I write my top 10 things to do in a place – but Cape Town is more than double your average city.
If you had said ‘Africa’ to me two years ago, incredible imagery of lions, dusty savannahs and red sunsets would have come to mind. But I wouldn’t have had a clue what to do, how to get around – or even where to begin! If you feel the same, I’m here to help.
Cape Town has to be the greatest city in the world! From day one it reeled me in and had me feeling like I never wanted to leave. There’s seriously everything – you can go from hectic, urban Long Street to beautiful gardens and incredible hikes and beaches all in a day. Having Table Mountain and Lion’s Head as a constant backdrop means it’s tough to take a bad photo!
What a place! When I think back on the most amazing experiences of my life, it’s hard for the rolling plains of the Serengeti not to spring to mind. The horizon was literally always moving – not with a heat haze but with masses of animals moving right into the distance.
Cape Town is nothing if not a melting pot of cultures, and Woodstock is one of the most diverse areas of the city. It’s also especially interesting because of the street art that can be found on almost every corner.
