Hey people!
I'm Hugh from the UK, currently in Cape Town for a couple of weeks and was thinking of doing the wine tram this weekend. Anyone fancy joining me? I was thinking Sunday but happy to be flexible. The first round of wine, and painkillers for your next day hangovers are on me!

Yes, my mistake, Cape Town!
homlavxkfz I was thinking just your typical one-on-one trainer, weight training + nutrition. But I'm open to other ideas too. I'll be in the waterfront for the first month.
hello friends ๐Ÿ™‚ i am leaving europe this week to spend winter in cape town :mostly_sunny:
what is a safe area to look for apartments?

Hello ๐Ÿ‘‹ Anyone going to Capetown this January/February? Looking for teammates and roommates to share surfing trips with =)

+1 plz ๐Ÿ™‚
Gardens is nice if you want to be close to town, sea point or camps bay to be closer to the beach if you donโ€™t mind being a bit out of the centre (and paying a bit more).

Nothing is completely safe unfortunately, but avoid Woodstock.
Iโ€™m around, hmu!
so gardens is like the city center?
thereโ€™s a nice market in woodstock thatโ€™s worth a day visit, but I wouldnโ€™t stay around there (I lived there and worked there for a while, and nothing happened to me personally but a lot of muggings and car breakins etc).
anyone got an evisa for South Africa (specifically for Mexico, but I think all the evisa eligible countries should be similar) - there are some dodgy-looking sites like| but battling to find official information from home affairs or a . website about how to apply
Iโ€™ll be here until mid-January. Been surfing a couple times a week and loving it!
Iโ€™m living in Tanborskloof and loving it
thanks guys โค๏ธ

Thereโ€™s a cookware store in Cape Quarter thatโ€™s pretty good.
How's Cape Town January-March? Thinking of headed there during that time frame for 3 months, not sure what the vibe is during those months heard it's good weather, concerts and peak season from several forums. Not sure if covid has affected tourism much or if it's fully recovered by now. Or if there's been an increase in crime or anything. Any intel helps!
Hi!! I was there this year (February-April) and I had a blast. Good weather but extremely windy sometimes!! And cold if you go for a hike, really cold... Zero mask and normal vibe so it should be the same now.
I went alone and I felt safe, but of course is not like in another countries. I usually walk alone during the night but not there (just grab an Uber) and choose a good neighbourhood.
Exactly. Waterfront is full of people and tourists and Sea Point too. Gardens is quieter.
I was in Vredehoek, with an amazing view but it was a bit far from the city center.

Jan - March are by far the best months in CT! No wind, not scorching hot but still beautiful weather, most of the tourists have left so itโ€™s quiet.

Crime is worse in December because of tourists. It definitely exists but donโ€™t let it put you off. Just keep your wits about you.
Good to know! Appreciate the intel! I'll be seeing if I can work my way there from southeast asia! Sounds like an exciting place to be and great community!
Has anyone on here stayed and worked at Neighbourhood in Cape Town before? Just looking for some reviews ๐Ÿ™‚
Seriously considering doing a multi-day safari over Christmas and / or New Yearโ€™s. Anyone here have any recommendations on a mid-level safari group?
it depends what you want! Kruger is the default/ most obvious one. Addo Elephant Park is where Iโ€™ve been a few times and love, but itโ€™s a bit further to travel if youโ€™re around JHB/CPT.

I'd recommend booking soon. We were looking at options for that week and everything was incredibly limited. We had some luck at Sabi Sands

Hi - I'm thinking of coming to cape town in January!-- I work american hours though-- is there a big community of DN's who are working off hours? is there a late night social life?
Mostly clubbing/bar wise yeah things are active
interesting- what time do bars close down there anyways?
it's not that big of a deal
you'll have all day to do tours/life while your coworkers are asleep
just do it!!!
Bars close around 2am, some places stay open (Illegally I think) and they're usually the dodgier places.
I think thereโ€™s a legal way to get a license to operate until 4am - I know is very strict at throwing people out at exactly 4, so I assume they have one.
but yeah you definitely canโ€™t be fussy after 2 ๐Ÿ˜†
I saw Sea Point had been recommended as a place to stay on this channel earlier. Does anyone have good experiences with any particular hotel/stay? Especially looking for good coworking spaces (perhaps nearby).
I think Sea Point is a bit grimy tbh, I didnโ€™t like it too much. Hout Bay and Camps Bay seem cleaner to me, with much nicer surroundings. Hout Bay is a bit further from the main city though
Youโ€™re also going to pay more in Camps Bay and Hout Bay. Sea Point is by far the most popular for nomads. De Waterkant is nice too, and I know of a few coworking spaces there or just nearby at the Waterfront
That being said, Iโ€™ve never stayed in Seapoint, so canโ€™t help with your original question
Sea Point is alright, but to be closer to coworking space options you'll want something in the city or nearer to the waterfront (De Waterkant is a good one, though the main walking route to the waterfront from there is under a bridge that is currently effectively a homeless village)
