Living in Cape Town is EVERYTHING you can imagine and so much more! And here are 12 reasons why you’ll fall head-over-heels in love with the Mother City, and might never want to leave again:
1. Table Mountain
This magnificent, world-renowned Mother City landmark needs absolutely no introduction. Seeing it for the first time will blow your mind, but getting to see it every day is a true blessing. There is nothing quite like having your Monday morning coffee while looking out at this Cape Town beauty.
2. It has a little bit of EVERYTHING
Living in Cape Town means you have just about everything right at your finger-tips. Mountains, ocean, nature, wine lands, wildlife, really good food, art, culture, markets; the list goes on and on! We like to compare the Mother City to a really cool, on-trend Tapas bar – you get to try a little bit of everything on the menu, and what’s better than that?
3. You have the Ocean & the beach in your backyard
Life’s a beach, a Cape Town beach that is! If you’re anything like us, this is a pretty BIG one! There’s just something about being close to the ocean that makes life just a little bit sweeter. The Mother City certainly has no shortage of spectacular beaches on offer.
