Cape Town



What are the particular advantages of living in this city?

The beauty, the food, the proximity to safaris, just the lifestyle in general. - Oct 1, 2017
The mountains come right down to the ocean and the vineyards line their slopes. Cape Town has everything you want. Plenty of outdoor stuff- hiking, road cycling, mountain biking, surfing, sea kayaking, etc. is available. You can play cricket, rugby, and soccer with relative ease or watch a professional side play if you prefer. The food is top notch including some of the best restaurants in the world. The wine is cheap and of very high quality. Cape Town also has a unique mix of cultures dating back to the founding of the Cape Colony that makes going out and socializing a constant learning activity. South Africa also has much of the infrastructure that you would find in the U.S. The roads are good, there are malls and supermarkets for shopping. - May 13, 2014
Cape Town is fabulous and amazing all around!! Lots to see and do for all age groups--from cultural activities to animal encounters to wine-tasting tours (where you CAN bring the kids to play on the playground, while you are tasting the wine!!). - Aug 26, 2013
