Hey! My name’s Claire and I’m the Experiential and Influencer Marketing Specialist at Encircled. Last summer I travelled to Cape Town, South Africa for two weeks. I spent much of my time in Cape Town and also took day trips to explore other parts of the Western Cape. This week, I’ll be sharing my favourite experiences in Cape Town and the stunning surrounding region.
The penguin population in the Western Cape has fallen drastically over the years due to over-fishing and habitat destruction. The population loss has been so severe because when one-half of a breeding pair falls ill, the other half doesn’t find a new partner. At the Boulders Beach Penguin Sanctuary, struggling penguins are treated and provided with shelters that you can buy for them.
KIRSTENBOSCH NATIONAL BOTANICAL GARDEN
I spent my first afternoon in Cape Town exploring the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, which finds its home in the southeast foothills of Table Mountain. This suspension bridge ran through parts of the gardens and led to an expansive viewing platform from where you could see the rest of the gardens.
There are an incredible number of things to do in Cape Town. We saw several people paraglide over the city, starting from Lion’s Head and landing on the beach on Clifton Beach. As we were in Cape Town during their winter, the weather was a bit unpredictable, so book weather-dependant activities early in case you need to rain-check.
That’s all from me! Cape Town really is an incredible city and I hope that this photo journal inspires you to add it to your list of must-see travel destinations. Let us know where you want to go next below!
