As part of our special #TheHuntrSummer2018 series we are excited to share some gems and tips from @fatmathemature’s recent trip to Cape Town 💥
Read on for Fatma’s inside scoop and don’t forget to share your adventures with us @thehuntrcom – we will be reposting the best all summer long 🕵️♂️ Fatma says: “Right now South African countries are enjoying winter, the weather is pretty cool and always under 20 degrees celsius. We stayed in the Harbouredge Apartments, they’re clean and in a good location, but I would prefer to stay at Camps Bay or Waterfront if I visited Cape Town again.
Moving to the great places to visit, Table Mountain was a great experience.
Waterfront and Waterfront Market are places you should visit at the end of the day. Saturday markets are a must! The Biscuit Mill Saturday market was my favourite.
We also went on a scooters tour, it was fun with some nice views but not recommended for children.
Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens is a beautiful place to explore new plants and flowers. And Cape Town’s Ostrich Farm is a fun place to visit too.
There are so many safaris but Aquila was the one recommended to us. Some animals were a bit too far to watch but it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience all the same. To watch the seals you can choose between two trips – one is short while the other one is longer. We went to the short trip, which takes you to a point in the middle of the ocean where seals gather. The longer trip takes you to an island filled with seals.
We have also found a mall randomly, which seems to be one of the newest malls in the city that not many people know about yet – it’s called Table Bay Mall.
My favourite beaches were Camps Bay and Noordhoek.
It’s worth noting that muslims can find halal food everywhere in Cape Town. Gold restaurant is one of the most authentic African restaurants and we enjoyed our time there. You can also walk around any food market and find great food – the Waterfront Food Market and Mojo Market are two markets that are open daily.
For coffee, we loved Hemelhuijs Cafe – the Vietnamese coffee is a must-try. It’s served in a big bowl. Origin Coffee is also worth a visit.”

Nandi, 26 anos 🐘❤️ e os últimos dias na África do Sul foram com essa experiência incrível: visita a um santuário que abriga dez elefantes que foram resgatados de maus tratos de circos e afins. Aí eles são tratados com muita seriedade e liberdade até que consigam ser reinseridos na natureza 🌱🐘🇿🇦 #inlovewithsouthafrica
Here it is!
After an amazing but tough day with windy and hot conditions @imsouthafrica I finally got the #medal .
Special thanks to my favourite supporter @anna_kuestenkind ♥ who spend the whole day at the track cheering for me and giving me a warm welcome at the finish line.
Thanks also to all volunteers, crowds at the track and to other athletes for making this event an unforgettable experience. #medalmonday#inlovewithsouthafrica
