Cape Town is the ultimate tourist attraction of South Africa, let’s face it. I moved here to have more of an active and healthy lifestyle and actually had no idea how much there is to do in this remarkable ‘holiday heaven’. It’s unreal. It’s so overwhelming and the opportunities are endless.
So a good place to start is to do a proper tourist activity, like the Red Bus Tour (currently operating in Cape Town and Johannesburg). It gives you an idea of the ‘lay of the land’, tells you all about the history behind the areas and places you pass and visit, gives you the freedom to hop off and on wherever you please and you can tweet while you’re being driven around 😉
A friend and I put it to the test over the weekend and had SUCH an awesome time.
We only did one day, but could easily have spent two days on the tour. The museums alone can take you an entire day, if you’re really keen on delving into Cape Town and South Africa’s history. If you’re bored of the commentary, you can listen to it in a bunch of different languages – maybe a bit of French for some #LetMeBeFrench inspiration?
I don’t think I need to tell you all about the richness of Cape Town’s history, architecture, nature, and culture. It is something you should experience for yourself!
We so often lose sight of the adventures right on our doorstep. Don’t be that guy. You know the one – who sits on the couch and moans about life. Be a tourist in your own town and be proud of the place that you choose to live – EVERYTHING is an adventure.
Shut up, Cape Town, you’re blowing my mind.
