10 Reasons Why You Should Never Visit Cape Town

1. Nothing to do

Cape Town is probably one of the most vibey cities on the planet! There certainly isn’t a lack of activities here – in fact, your schedule will be jam-packed if you visit.

We have found a list of great activities to keep you busy:

The Springbok Experience

The Springbok Experience is a world-class, modern interactive museum telling South Africa’s story through the eyes of its most powerful sport. It offers a fun and entertaining experience for the whole family and is a ‘must-do’ attraction at the heart of the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town.

The museum features more than 60 audio visual displays where visitors can watch the history of South African rugby unfold, set among cases displaying historic objects such as famous trophies, jerseys, boots and other memorabilia. It makes a perfect venue for exclusive corporate events as well.

The Sheer Magnificence of AfrikaBurn

And so AfrikaBurn 2015 has come to an end…

This year’s theme was “The Gift”, and it proved to be just as epic as any other year! The festival, which takes place on Stonehenge Farm in the Tankwa Karoo in the Northern Cape, is South Africa’s very own version of Burning Man.

Visitors get to leave the regular world behind as they enter a world of utopia and surrealism. AfrikaBurn is a Leave No Trace event, which means that once everyone has packed up and left, there is no trace that there was any recent human life there – the aim is to keep the Karoo semi-desert as pristine as it was before. Participants get dressed up to the nines in outfits that have been planned months ahead of time. Cars and bicycles are kitted out (all logos are to be hidden on cars, clothing etc.).

Money will do you no good here. Absolutely nothing is for sale, except for ice. Don’t expect to barter either – the community works on “gifting”; you give what you can to contribute to the event – whether it’s beer, your skills or a first aid kit, and when you need something, all you have to do is ask.

If you plan ahead, plan smart and do it right, AfrikaBurn may just be the most incredible event you will ever get to experience!

Below are some of the pictures from Afrikaburn 2015, just to get you excited for next year!

15 Instagram photos that will have you packing your bags for Cape Town

New York Times announced that Cape Town was the number one city in the world to visit in 2014 – with accolades like that, no wonder she has been named “The Mother City”.

Not only is Cape Town jaw-droppingly beautiful, but there is so much to see and do there! If you ask visitors what their favourite part about Cape Town is, you will get a wide range of answers, ranging from: Table Mountain to the winelands, and the sandy beaches to the friendly people. It’s hard to pinpoint just a couple of things that make this city great.

The colours of the Bo-Kaap are incredible, boasting bright housing all over which has become increasingly popular with tourists. If you’re a fan of hiking, you can give Table Mountain a bash – or simply head up the Aerial Cableway if you feel like something a little more laid back. Cape Town is known for her wine – make sure you go on at least one of the wine routes while you’re there. There are plenty of other activities to keep you occupied – you will never be bored here!

You can go to the beach for many different reasons – to surf, swim, hang out with the seals and penguins or even sunbathe naked on Cape Town’s very own nude beach, Sandy Bay.

Have a look at what these Instgrammers have had the pleasure of experiencing and if that doesn’t make you want to pack your bags for Cape Town straight away, then I don’t know what will!
