Get Adventurous in Cape Town
October 21 - December 15, 2018
Why Come to Cape Town, South Africa
Theme: Social Reform and Reinvention
Because the penguins, lions, and elephants (and other awesome people) are waiting for you
We went to Cape Town for 3 months last year and have been itching to go back. There is something so magical, captivating, and energetic about the city and its people. Warm smiles, great food, and new experiences are waiting for you. Go to a traditional braai where you can experience all three at once.
cape town has it all:
Ready to get out of the office? Kite surf, go on a safari, and visit the penguins on the beach. Cape Town has 72 beaches with some of the most beautiful blue water you’ll ever see.
When you’re ready for a break from the beach, hike up the picturesque Table Mountain or one of the other incredible trails around Cape Town.
get up close with
I’m going to mention going on a safari again because it’s that important. It’s hard to describe how you feel as a herd of elephants saunter past you in the wild or watching a family of lions nap in the sun after tracking down an impala. You definitely have to experience it for yourself.
stay close to the
We’re negotiating with housing in a great location next to the coworking space and close to the bars, restaurants, parks, gyms, grocery stores, etc. in town for you to easily visit.
say no to
We’ve outgrown staying in hostels and sharing shitty rooms with strangers. With us, you’ll have your own room in nice accommodations with good wifi and the amenities you’ll need to stay healthy, happy, and productive.
work & travel
Working remotely doesn’t mean you always have to feel like you’re bouncing around and living out of a suitcase. Get ready to hang up your clothes, set up your Nintendo Switch, and put your feet up – you’re home!
Why commute to work when you can take a leisurely stroll down a tree-lined street and stop at your favorite cafe on the way. We choose to work at coworking spaces within a 15-minute walk to our housing so you can easily make it back and forth.
Most important thing to us when selecting a coworking space is the wifi. Without it, none of us can do our work. You can expect to have consistent, great wifi in addition to the other things you might need to stay productive like a place to take calls, nice ergonomic chairs and desks, nicely lit spaced, and more.
be than a tourist
The other big thing we look at is community. We don’t want to be a group of foreigners working in our own bubble. We try to incorporate into the local scene the best we can through holding events with local individuals, business, NGOs, and government organizations so we make meaningful connections while we are there. Get ready to move past being just a tourist in a location.
our things you have to do in Cape Town
Table Mountain Yes, we all know that one. But that doesn’t mean you should skip this breathtaking landmark. Beat the crowds by doing an overnight hike on one of the over 350 trails that lead to the top and sleep in tended camps along the way.
Wine lovers unite: South Africa is famous for its wines. Constantia Valley is the oldest wine-making region in the southern hemisphere, Indulge in wine tasting and cellar tours just 15 minutes from Cape Town, and buy your favourite tipple directly from the estates.
Camps Bay is known for its fine white sand, natural rock swimming pool and views of the Twelve Apostles mountains. Behind the beach, posh seafood restaurants, mellow cafes and cocktail bars with patios overlook the promenade. Perfect to watch the sunset!
Swim with crocs: Le Bonheur Crocodile Farm presents the opportunity to get up-close and personal with one of Africa’s most powerful predators from the safety of a secure cage. Too much? Stay on land, take a guided pond tour over a dam and pet a baby croc.
Greenmarket Square is a charming cobblestone plaza with a dark history. One of South Africa’s oldest public squares it used to be slave market. Luckily those days are over and now it’s crowded with local vendors selling painted fabrics and hand-crafted trinkets.
