Long Street is one of Cape Town’s most iconic streets, and with the incredible variety of food, fashion, nightlife spots, book stores, antique stores, street vendors and international visitors lining the sidewalks, it’s easy to see why. But don’t let all of this distract you from one of Long Street’s finest features: the awesome architecture.
With almost half-a-million followers between them, Germany’s top two Instgrammers, Thomas Kakareko and Sylvia Matzkowiak, are racking up the “likes” as they Instagram their way through Cape Town.
Recently, the inaugural Nightjar Adventurer 2013 Awards took place at the Cape Union Mart Adventure Centre at Canal Walk. Well over 100 adventure enthusiasts packed out the venue, having read the adventurers’ stories over the past weeks but having no idea what to expect next. Well, even their best guesses would have missed the mark: the evening turned into a comedy hour, with the speakers and winners brilliantly recounting some of their more amusing adventuring mishaps.
He is one of South Africa’s biggest musical entertainers and beloved television personalities but at heart, Emo Adams is and always has been a true Cape Town “boykie”.
Beautiful Cape Town has played hosted to a number of top international journalists and bloggers in the past year, including National Geographic’s Digital Nomad Andrew Evans and Matt Long of @LandLopers, who visited along with his fellow #lovecapetown iAmbassadors, and they sure have been vocal about Where They Would Rather Be on Wednesdays in the Mother City.
There are few things I enjoy more than exploring my beautiful Cape Town and her gorgeous surrounding towns, so my adventures with South African National Parks are a real treat.

“Whoaah, we’re halfway there, Whoaah, livin on a prayer …” If you still have chills running up and down your spine thanks to the crowd and Bon Jovi’s amazing a capella singalong to this popular hit, chances are you partied like a rock star with the legendary band at the Cape Town Stadium on Tuesday 7 May, 2013!
I don’t often experience the sensual seafood tastes of a restaurant in Cape Town, so naturally I jumped at the opportunity to review the impressive menu at Live Bait in Kalk Bay on Saturday 27 April, 2013. With its spectacular views of Kalk Bay Harbour (one of its walls is actually the breakwater of the harbour) and the Atlantic Ocean, this seaside eatery is the perfect lunch spot. Patrons lucky enough to get a table at the floor-to- ceiling windows facing the ocean will spot a seal or two frolicking in the waves.
