Cape Town is a city that just has it all.
Cape Town is a city that just has it all. If you are looking for adventurous mountain hikes, a vibrant city experience, exciting sports activities or just relaxing at the beach, Cape Town offers you the full package.
Starting from the city centre, you get the first feeling about the city atmosphere. On Kloof Street are lots of fancy and artsy restaurants and bars, offering drinks and all different kinds of food at a decent price. In general you will be amazed on what you get on your dish for much less than you expect. In this area there are lots of hotels and hostels offering great service and clean rooms.
For example Once in Capetown is a modern hostel offering both dorms and single rooms which are very stylish and clean. And when you leave the hostel you will find yourself in and artsy and cool café called Yours Truly. Kloof Street is close to beautiful Bo Kaap, colorful houses lined up along the hillside of Signal Hill. This quarter is not only nice to look at, but also keeps an interesting cultural and historical background.
From here you are also close to Lion’s Head, which is worth a hike. It takes around two hours to get up to the top. Definitely put on some comfy clothes and shoes and avoid the midday sun. On top you will have a breathtaking view on the famous table mountain, which gets a mythical touch when clouds frame the colossal stonewall like a waterfall.
You will also have a great view over the ocean and the reach Cape Town has. And if you want to see a spectacular sunset, just take the road from the foot of Lion´s Head to Signal Hill, where lots of people gather every night to see the sun vanishing into the sea.Taking the car from Kloof Street around Lion´s Head, you will hit Camps Bay where you will find white sand beaches. Here you can really feel beach holiday vibes. But be careful, the wind can be surprisingly strong. If you want to drive to a more secluded beach, take the road further from Camp´s Bay to Llandudno. The drive itself is already worth it.
These are just a fraction of what Cape Town has to offer, hence only exploring the city and its surroundings you should at least plan in two weeks.
South Africa is a country offering a cultural versatility which is hardly detectable elsewhere and within a single country.
Besides its repertoire of extraordinary and stunning landscapes, South Africa is a country offering a cultural versatility which is hardly detectable elsewhere and within a single country. Confronted by paradoxes which initiate one to reason circumstances, one is fascinated by the commitment for creating new things and establishing a community feeling at the same time. Especially because women are still exposed to struggles of cultural nature, it is inspirational to see how positive and full of enthusiasm they are when trying to bring changes. You as a tourist only benefit from it (for example by strolling through a market full of hand-made and natural products) and it will definitely leave a sustainable impression on you.
