With scary media reports coming from various parts of West Africa as well as the United States and other places, it is no surprise that many travellers are concerned about ebola in South Africa. To help put your mind at rest, the first thing that you need to know is that there has been no recorded case of the current ebola outbreak in South Africa. The next thing you need to know is that geographically, despite being on the same continent, South Africa is much further away from West Africa than Spain, London, Paris and even Brazil.

Why are visitors worried about the ebola outbreak in Africa, and how does this concern affect travel to Cape Town and other places within Southern Africa?

What You Should Know About Ebola in Africa

Many visitors assume that Africa is a country. While it’s true that there are no oceans dividing each country within the continent, much like Europe, Asia and the United States, Africa is comprised of many different countries, cities, towns and areas. It is divided into four major quadrants – North, South, East and West. The massive size of the continent (it is larger than the US, Japan, China, India and Europe combined) means that countries in one quadrant are often situated vast distances from countries in another quadrant. Check out the handy infographic created by Africa Geographic to see the distance between South Africa and West Africa:

Ebola in Africa

 

Ebola South Africa

[infographic source]

Here are some other important things that will help you determine whether or not there is any reason for concern about ebola when travelling to some of the top destinations in Africa:

* Southern Africa is where South Africa (and it’s Mother City, Cape Town) is found along with Zambia, Zimbabwe and Botswana, with Namibia positioned on the south west side.

* East Africa is where many of the world’s top wildlife destinations are found, including Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda and Mozambique.

* West Africa is where the current outbreak of ebola began. Countries here are considered high risk, and include Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, with a few, controlled cases being reported in Nigeria and Senegal.

* All of these countries (and almost every other country across Africa and the rest of the world) have put serious control measures into place in order to stabilise, monitor and control the spread of the disease.

*  Rigid air controls, reduced flights to outbreak areas and other measures have also made it far more difficult for those travelling from affected areas to enter non-affected areas, which further minimises the risk.

* Travel requirements across Africa are stringent – vaccinations, careful screening and other checks at border points are par for the course, and have been even before the start of the ebola outbreak.

As you can see, there is no reason for concern when planning a safari, holiday, conference or other travel to Southern or East Africa. There are a number of useful resources that can further put your mind at ease, such as International SOS, who have a daily update on recorded cases across the world.

It is natural for panic to set in when viruses such as this begin to spread, and the frightening images of the disease add to that panic. In reality however, in addition to the disease not being transmitted through air (unlike flu, for example), and with the ongoing efforts from major healthcare organisations around the world, governments in all affected countries and numerous other officials, the actual risks for those visiting non-affected areas are extremely minimal.

Before you give in to the global hysteria and cancel that much-awaited trip to Cape Town, take a moment to consider the information we have shared. With so much to offer, South Africa’s Mother City is not only ebola and malaria free, it is also a place that is consistently voted the world’s favourite travel destination.

We hope that this information puts your mind at rest, and we look forward to helping you plan your next holiday in Cape Town!

If you have not checked out the amazing Kirstenbosch Canopy Walkway in Cape Town yet, this treetop walk is well-worth a visit… especially for nature fans and those who enjoy a bit of outdoor fun.

Kirstenbosch Canopy Walkway

Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens is situated in the heart of the southern suburbs of Cape Town, in the leafy area of Newlands. Home to a number of unique sections that range from indigenous plants to fynbos, cycads, roses, fragrant plants and many other floral wonders, this garden also hosts regular summer events such as open-air concerts and movies.

The walkway offers visitors the chance to get an entirely different view of the gardens along with Table Mountain, with a roped walk that lies high above the trees.

Kirstenbosch Treetop Canopy Walkway

What do you need to know about the Kirstenbosch Treetop Canopy Walkway and why is this a great activity for all? Here are a few quick facts below…

* The Centenary Tree Canopy Walkway is made from steel and wood, and curves through and over the Arboretum trees.

* Entrance to the walkway can be found between the Protea Garden, Cycad Amphitheatre, the Dell, Mathews Rockery and the Concert Lawn.

* It’s unofficial name is The Boomslang (tree snake), as it mimics the motions of the snake of the same name that is typically found in trees within South Africa.

* It is 130m long, and began development in 2013 to mark the centenary of Kirstenbosch Gardens. It officially opened in 2014.

* There are no added costs to access the walkway other than the usual entry fees to get into the gardens (R50 for adults, R25 for students, R10 for kids between 6 and 17, free for kids under 6, free for pensioners every Tuesday aside from public holidays).

* Opening hours for the garden and the walkway are 08h00 to 19h00 during summer months and 08h00 to 18h00 during the winter months. The gardens are open Monday to Sunday – visit the SANBI Kirstenbosch page for more visitor information.

Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens is situated on Rhodes Drive in Newlands, with parking provided at the bottom gate as well as the top gate. The next time you pay this garden a visit, be sure to take a stroll through the treetops on the Kistenbosch Canopy Walkway!

UPDATE: Bad news for Tomorrowland 2015 fans – reports have come in recently stating that this much-anticipated event is not confirmed as originally published by media outlets across the country. You can read a statement from one of the event organisers on the local SA side over here (click link to read), and we will do our best to update you as and when we hear anything regarding this event. Check out the post we did on Tomorrowland Cape Town 2015 last year in the meantime. 

tomorrowland 2015 cape townThe music scene has been going crazy today with talk of Tomorrowland coming to Cape Town in 2015, bringing the festival’s very first international edition off to what should be a great start!

Officially, what we do know is that Tomorrowland 2015 has been dubbed ‘TomorrowWorld’. In previous years, this massive Belgian music festival has been held in some of Europe’s top capitals.

The 2013 event was sold out within an hour of ticket sales opening, and well over 2 million party goers came out to see acts such as Paul van Dyk, Tiësto, Avicii, Steve Aoki, David Guetta and others do their thing.

What We Know About Tomorrowland 2015 South Africa

So far, details are still a little sketchy, but hopefully we should have a full breakdown on what to expect in three year’s time. The details so far are as follows:

Date: the festival will most likely be held in February 2015

Venue: sources have revealed that Fairview near Paarl is looking like a possible venue

Ticket Cost: you’re looking at an approximate cost of around R1500 for a weekend pass

Event Organiser: apparently, the event is being brought out by VWV Massive

But that’s not all you have to look forward to in the year or three ahead…

There is also talk of other big name acts coming our way – Rhianna, Nickelback and Dave Mathews are just some examples. Over the past year, we’ve had a retro revival in South Africa…. moving forward we seem to be getting onto the latest and greatest side of things.

What do you think – will Tomorrowland 2015 take Cape Town and SA by storm?

We have some important (and good!) news for parents planning to come to Cape Town… Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba announced this week that the two visa regulations for visitors travelling with children will be postponed until 1 June 2015.

The new visa regulations have been causing a lot of concern among travellers, accommodation operators, travel agents and many others within the tourism industry. You can read more about these regulations in the post we did on South Africa visa regulations to read the full list of proposed changes.

Not surprisingly, many are breathing a sigh of relief that, for now anyway, there is some breathing room to get prepared for such a major set of travel regulations.

South African visa regulations

SA Travel Regulations for Children Postponed to June 2015

Regulations that have been postponed relate directly to travelling with minors, and include the requirement that all travelling children must have an unabridged birth certificate and a further requirement that written permission from both parents or guardian(s) is needed to authorise the child’s ability to travel.

“We have granted the postponement of these two particular requirements — the unabridged birth certificate and written permission, to June 1, 2015,” Minister Gigaba is quoted as stating to reporters during his announcement. The regulations were originally set to be put into place in July 2014, but were postponed until October 2014 before being pushed back again to 2015.

So far there is no word regarding additional visa regulations that have been proposed, such as work visas, biometric visas and other related requirements. We are keeping our ears and eyes to the ground to find out further updates as they are announced. In the meantime, if you have any questions or comments, please contact us via our website or chat to us on Facebook.

If you are a grad or post-graduate student considering interning in Cape Town, this post is just for you. Whether you have already begun the process of applying for internships, or you have plans to intern in the city somewhere in the near future, firstly we’d like to say well done for choosing Cape Town as your destination.

Interning in Cape Town

The Mother City has become a popular intern destination, and for good reason too… across a variety of sectors ranging from development all the way to marketing, tourism, medicine, healthcare, science and the arts, Cape Town is home to many (many) businesses that offer opportunities to work and learn. These include private and government positions, across the city’s many areas.

If you have questions on what you can expect when applying (and being accepted) for an internship in Cape Town, keep reading to see if they are answered in our handy tips and advice below.

Some Useful Advice for Interning in Cape Town

Wondering what makes interning in this part of the world special? Keen to know how to get around and find your feet? Here are some if the most commonly asked questions (and some answers too):

* Which agency is best for finding intern opportunities?

This depends on a number of factors, including but not limited to the type of internship you plan to do, your field of study, the type of programmes offered, your preferred location and even costs. The best way to go about finding agencies is to ask fellow students who have been placed who they would recommend. You should also ask around on your social stream too – Twitter, Facebook and especially LinkedIn offer the chance to get some insight from other people in your extended circles. An internet search is also useful (if there are any bad reviews written on the agency, this is the best way to find them, too!). You could even ask your lecturers or dean for advice on choosing the best agency.

* Do programmes usually include options for accommodation and flights? 

Programmes vary when it comes to services they offer – many good agencies will be able to assist with most aspects of travel arrangements however. Accommodation choices vary too, from dorm-style lodging to student rentals, short-term vacation rentals, month-by-month apartment rentals and shared accommodation. Always ask what the agency includes in their programme before you sign any contracts so that you have all the info you need upfront. This will make it a lot easier to plan and budget accordingly.

* What things are there to see and do in Cape Town?

There are loads and loads of great things to do in the city and its surrounds, with plenty to see as well. Check out our Why Cape Town section to see a full list of activities and attractions, and follow our blog for even more things to do. Making friends with fellow interns and co-workers at the company you are interning at is one of the best ways to discover the city. A local guide such as a co-worker or friends you make during your time in the city will give you a unique insight into the ‘off the beaten path’ attractions.

* What about public transport and getting around Cape Town?

Check out our posts on train travel, the MyCiti bus and Uber, Rikki and other taxis for a break-down on how those transport options work. If you are based in the City Bowl, getting around is very easy. You can even walk during the daytime if you’re up for a bit of exploring, but it’s better to stay on the safe side at night and take a cab, especially if you are travelling alone. Mini bus taxis are cheap, crazy and sometimes downright confusing – try taking a short ride with a co-worker who knows the area well though… it’s an unforgettable experience that is totally “South African”!

* What is the weather like there?

All in all, you can expect amazingly warm weather much of the year round. Based in the southern hemisphere, Cape Town has its winter during the middle part of the year, with the coldest (and wettest) weather happening around June and July. Summer is at the end of the year, which is also when schools and universities close for the year. The weather in summer is typically hot and dry – perfect for enjoying the large number of beaches to be found nearby. What makes the weather so perfect though is that it is never boring. In the midst of winter, it is normal to have glorious sunny days; in Summer, cool days offer much-needed refreshment.

We all know the benefits of living an active, healthy lifestyle, but when it comes to outdoor fitness in Cape Town, there are many ways to take the ‘work’ out of your workout without feeling like getting fit is a chore.

outdoor fitness Cape Town

Outdoor fitness is certainly not a new concept. There are many people who hate the idea of gym (myself included!). My own personal experiences in fitness have ranged from amazing (a few years of muay thai training that I will never regret, ever) to forgettable (hours of slogging over machines in the gym) to life-changing (getting to love the joy of running). Of all these experiences, one of the main reasons I have always enjoyed running so much is that it gets me outside into the fresh air, where I can see the mountain, the sky, an occasional sunset and on promenade runs, the ocean.

If you’re anything like me, and are always looking for ways to make exercise more enjoyable, be sure to try at least one of these great ideas below… trust me, you won’t regret it (and your body will thank you too!).

Fun Ways to Get Fit Outdoors in Cape Town

Looking for an alternative to traditional, less-than-exciting workouts? Here are some enjoyable ways to get fit outdoors in Cape Town that are so much fun, you won’t remember you are even trying to get fit:

1. Outdoor Gym 

Who said hitting the gym had to mean being cooped up indoors? The outdoor gym in Sea Point is a great place to enjoy a workout, with a range of machines and equipment found here, as well as some obstacle course type workouts. You can warm up with a run along the promenade, or play a game of soccer on the grass too if that’s your thing.

Sea Point Promenade – Beach Road, Sea Point (free)

2. Surfing 

In Muizenberg on the False Bay coast, surfing lessons offer the best way to learn how to master the art of riding the waves. The water on this coast is warm, and all levels of surfer from beginners to advanced are welcomed. If you want to start learning how to surf, you should be a fairly good swimmer, be fairly fit and have patience as you learn how to stay up on the board. Check out this list of surf schools to find out which offer lessons.

Muizenberg Beach - Beach Road, Muizenberg (various costs for lessons and board hire)

3. Bootcamp

There are two main bootcamp operators in Cape Town – Adventure Boot Camp (for women) and Boot Camp SA (for men). Both share the same concept, which is a challenging workout that includes everything from obstacle courses to drill training, weights and various other workout disciplines to get you at your fittest. Classes are held every weekday over a time frame of a few weeks, with pricing determined by the number of classes you attend during that time. Bring water and a towel, and expect to be worked out like never before!

Various locations across the city (pricing varies from R500 or so upwards)

4. Outdoor Yoga

Pop-up yoga classes have become a regular thing in the city, and are often found on the promenade, Camps Bay and other beaches, city parks and many other outdoor destinations around town. Molo Yoga offers pop-up classes at a number of different outdoor locations for R40 per class, while spontaneous yoga sometimes happens on the promenade if you’re lucky enough to catch a class.

Various locations across the city (pricing varies from R40 per class upward)

5. Hiking and Nature Walks

There are so many different hikes and walks to try that we put them all into a whole separate post! You can check out our full guide to hiking in Cape Town to see which routes offer what you are looking for, or for starters you can consider some of the more popular areas to enjoy some fresh air walking, such as Lion’s Head, Newlands Forest Contour Path or Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens.

Various locations across the city (free)
