In 6 days I accomplished something I never thought I could.
I ate something I never thought I would and I laid my eyes on things I never thought I would.
South-Africa, that’s all because of you.
There are a few sides to visiting Cape Town. Firstly, there is the historical and cultural side -District Six Museum educates you about the history of the South-African capital, while Robben Island takes you back to the prison where Nelson Mandela once was held.
Secondly, you have the natural and wild side of Kaapstad. Hiking Table Mountain might be the most challenging and exciting goal I ever accomplished. Strolling down the botanical gardens of Kirstenborsch during a lovely (free) walking tour opened up my eyes and made me realize how diverse and magical Mother Nature really is.
Not to be missed: a safari tour in one of South Africa’s many private wild reserves. To check off “seeing the Big Five” on your bucket list is a goal, I believe, we all have in common.
Next, let me show you some real South-African vibes. Enjoy some biltong while waiting for your braai to get started, or finding yourself in a state of relaxation while enjoying the warm sunset on Signal Hill. How about hiking up the Cape of Good Hope? It is a challenge, but the views are more than rewarding.
Or you can bring a visit to Boulders Beach, where you will not only find a beautiful beach by see through water, but also expect to be surrounded by the cutest little visitors – African penguins.
The main goal of my travels to South-Africa was to visit my best friend. But boy, did that turned out to be one of the best trips I ever made. If you ever visit this warm, vivid and exciting country, make sure to get the best out of it and take you time to do so.
