Matt Long of @LandLopers talks about his #LoveCapeTown experience
With a passion for travel, tourism and social media, Cape Town is the quintessential backdrop for Media Developer Leon Jamarie and his cape adventures.
With the City as his canvass Leon paints the town red covering a range of events and activities in the peninsular while staying true to the traditional culture the mother city offers it’s children,
Originally from Durban, Leon is still an accidental tourist in the city he now calls home and as such is on the line between resident and local tourist able to provide inside knowledge and flavour to the average mundane travel blog.
He is always on the look out for that hidden gem or typical CT party. If it’s fun, relevant, he will cover it.
Adventure traveller Matt Long shares his adrenaline moments with more than 15 000 Twitter followers @landlopers and has a blog of the same name Landlopers.com. He is a respected Lonely Planet blogger and is noted on several platforms as a top blogger.
Matt has been on a whirlwind trip to Cape Town as part of Cape Town Tourism's #LoveCapeTown iAmbassadors campaign. Unlike the other iAmbassadors, this is Matt's first time to Cape Town, which he says is similar to Sydney, possibly better.
Matt has gone on a city design walk in the Fringe district, learnt about heritage and culture with a Sex and Slaves in the City tour, and learnt to cook Malay food in the Bo-Kaap. But his favourite thus far is diving with great white sharks.
Below are some pics from his adventures:
