Hi guys! I'm a South African whose lived in Europe for a while and am heading back this year. I'm excited to head back home, I must say! Though I am a "local" in Cape Town, when you don't live in a place for a while, it's shocking how fast things can change and how many new places and experiences pop up! So for me, the aim of this trip would be to really immerse myself and experience Cape Town like the locals do currently! What I want to cover during this 10-day trip is nature, culture, food & wine and city. So I'm talking Table Mountain, Lion's Head, white sandy beaches, Cape Point, Cape winelands (Constantia, Stellenbosch and Franschhoek), local food experiences, hiking, and appreciating the wildlife as well as the city life. As a travel writer and content creator, I'm particularly looking for fellow writers, photographers and content creators who are keen to travel with me. Folks who are looking for an adventure of a lifetime in one of the top cities in the world. A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to create some epic content in Africa and, of course, make lifelong memories and great friendships. Each of the spots I mention offers excellent opportunity for getting stories, photographs or videos and I would love to share this trip with like minded people and see how we can encourage and support one another in our creative work, whilst having a good time. I'm planning to stay in guesthouses and Airbnbs.
CITY LIVING (3 nights, 4 days) After arriving from wherever you'll be arriving, we simply meet at our accommodation in the city centre. Relax and freshen up. Depending on the energy levels and time, we could check out one of the great rooftop bars for sundowners and have dinner. We'll have to see how it goes! Other things I'd want to do in the city during these days include a hike up Lion's Head, perhaps go up Table Mountain with the cable car (or a hike - depending on how we all feel), go for a typical Cape Malay cooking class somewhere in the Bo-Kaap area. Spend some time exploring the city on foot (perhaps join a walking tour of sorts) to discover some new gems (restaurants, bars, shops, museums), and visit some of the top beaches near the city (Clifton, Camps Bay, Llandudno). I'm open to suggestions!
INTO NATURE (2 nights, 3 days) Make our way from the city centre to the Southern Peninsula where we visit Cape Point and Boulder's Beach (to see some African penguins!). Explore the quaint neighbourhood of Kalk Bay, visit some wine farms in the Constantia Valley, maybe go for a surf at Muizenberg. If we're lucky, we should see some whales during this time of the year!
WINE TIME (2 nights, 3 days) We head to the Cape Winelands! We can pick and choose from literally hundreds of wine farms in the Stellenbosch and Franschhoek and organise some cool wine tasting and wine pairing experiences. After this, we make our way towards Cape Town airport, or everyone goes their own directions. :)
