Less than half an hour outside of the city, Sandboarding in Cape Town takes you to the dunes of Atlantis for an adventure that can only be described as unbelievably amazing.

So, so much more than just a good cup of coffee, Truth Coffee is in a league all of its own. This outstanding coffee cult is situated in the city of Cape Town, in an industrial venue that H.G Wells would have approved.

This functional mountain rail system is thought to be the only commercial funicular of its type within the whole of Africa, making it even more of an experience to try.
