Adrenaline seekers and nature lovers alike will find something to love in these five cities, all of which are located in or near some of the planet’s finest wildernesses.
The peninsula’s alluring mix of space, scenery and proximity to Cape Town has long attracted a free-spirited mix of artists, hippies, surfers, expats and creative professionals.
A formerly down-and-out area, mostly known for crumbling Victorian cottages and dilapidated industrial buildings, is now home to the city’s hippest art scene.
The city’s natural charms are just a short journey from its central skyscrapers, with everything from surfing to sandboarding on offer in the surrounding mountains and coastlines.
With a mountain and seals in the city, as well as outdoor activities along the coast, it is hard to think of another city in Africa that has as much to delight children as Cape Town.
