Out of all three cities in South Africa, this was my most favorite place as far as things to do. It was my element. I am a mountain girl (My dad is from Tennessee), city girl (my mom is from New York City) and I’m a water baby (I was born in Florida), so I was able to have the best of all worlds. I spent about five days in Cape Town.
This was by far my favorite place to Uber to every day. It was a central location for any other place I wanted to go. It has tons of options for places to shop, dine, and be entertained. This place reminded me so much of home in Fort Lauderdale, Florida; I could hang out there all day if I weren't so short on time.
Hop On Hop Off Bus
For about $12, I was able to see just about all of Cape Town via CitySightSeeing. The best part? You can eat on the bus! I will never forget the time I got to eat a super delicious sandwich with the wind blowing in my ears as I was taking in the beauty of South Africa.
Free Walking Tour to BoKaap
If you get a two-day bus pass, the walking tour is free. The best part of this walking tour is that we were able to walk up the hill to the small Muslim community of Bo-Kaap, one of the most photographed places in the world.
Table Mountain Hike or Picnic with Sunset on Lion’s Head
One of the best moments I had during my last full day in Cape Town, I rode the bus all day long only to get off to get some food. I could have gotten off earlier to hike up Table Mountain, but the locals encourage you not to do it alone. I was pleased with watching the sunset with hundreds of other people who were picnicking while being alone at the same time. The only different part was there was a video shoot going on at the time, which limited some of the space. I wouldn’t blame the ladies; it’s such a beautiful sight.
Botanical Gardens in any city are a very photogenic place. Although I did not get to enter, by the time I go off the Hop on Hop off bus, there was just one hour until closing time; to catch the bus back, as this was the same day, I wanted to watch the Sunset. However, I hear lots of great things about it. It’s located away from the other touristy spots, so if I could, I would return to Cape Town just to visit that site again.
Beach Day in Camps Bay
Although I did not hop off the bus to go to the beach, I witnessed many other people enjoying a Saturday in and along the waters.
So, those are my top six things to do, but it’s not limited to these items!
