Daytrip to Cape of Good Hope and Cape Point: Cliffs and Mountains

Cape of Good Hope is known as being the most southern part of the African continent, but it is not in reality (Cape Agulhas is). But, it is no reason to not visit this beautiful scenery! The famous sign which states you are on the most southern part of the African continent can be found there (yes, even if it is not the most southern part ;)). On the same sight you can also find Cape Point, which consists of a big peak with a lighthouse tower on it with an amazing view.

Shortlist: Top 5 thing to do in Cape Town

Cape Town is my favorite city in the world! I had the privilege to do an internship here for 3 months, and it was the most amazing time of my life!

So, in short, what are top 5 things you must do in Cape Town itself?

Clubbing

If you are in Cape Town, you have to visit the party scene! Mondays karaoke in Camps Bay, tuesday sports bar in Long Street, Thursdays in Green Point and the weekends in Club 31 or Long Street. Cape Town is never boring! Especially Long Street, from the Irish pub Kennedy’s to the Hip hop hotspots Marvels and Joburg.

Hiking

Cape Town itself has many hiking spots. The best ones are Lions Head and Table Mountain. You can hike the easy part, which still takes 2 to 3 hours, or the advanced one with ladders and hooks which takes 4 to 5 hours. Just want to enjoy the view and are physically not able to hike? There are also cable cars at the Table Mountain.

Beach

There are so many beaches in Cape Town. My favorite is Blouberg Strand, which has an amazing view over Table Mountain. The Clifton beaches around Camps Bay are also cozy! Just mind the water, it is freaking cold.

Townships

Visiting the other side of the city is a definite must. Taking a tour through the townships will teach you a lot about how life is for the lesser fortunate, and how they make it as a community. Do not forget to visit Mzoli’s for the real braai experience.

Food markets

South Africa is blessed with a lot of influences from all over the world. And this reflects on the food markets. The Old Biscuit Mill and Hout Bay market are two of the biggest in the city and my favorite food places in the world. Live music, South African wines and a variety of food you have never seen. Arab food, Ostrich burgers, Belgian waffles, Dutch pancakes, Italian pizza or Kudu meat, these markets will make you drool. And do not forget to braai (not barbecue), South Africans love their braai!

 

Cape Town is worth the visit. And it is close to a lot of cool places and things to do around the western part of the country. Be sure to visit this beautiful scenery as well and enjoy the most of this diverse country!

Want to see sharks? Shark cage diving in South Africa is the place to be!

You an animal lover? Love sharkmovies and want to see the ‘killers’ in person? In South Africa, the great white shark population is healthy¬†over there.

When I did an internship back in 2012 in Cape Town, I went for a shark cage diving experience in Gansbaai, South Africa. Want to see how this experience was? Check out my video on youtube or check it out below!
