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.
Durban is South Africa’s second-largest city, rivalled only in size by Cape Town. It has surprisingly good beaches for an urban area and tourists flock to them, but they don’t tend to hang out in the city centre. (more…)
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!
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.
