The Cape Town Experience – Our Interns Top 10

Countless activities await you during after hours or on weekends! We asked our interns who have clearly taken the best memories with them. Here are our top 10 best things to do in Cape Town:

  1. The Classic: A Garden Route Tour. This is a track along the Indian Ocean with beautiful landscapes and beaches. Everyone makes this trip, and everyone enjoy’s it!

  2. Surfing! Whether Jeffrey’s Bay or Muitzenberg, waves are available for every level. Somehow, everyone makes it on the board.

  3. Day tour to the Cape of Good Hope

  4. Table Mountain & Lion’s Head – Why it made our list will become clear to you once you reach the top of the peak.

  5. Wine Tasting – Enjoy super beautiful landscapes and the world's best wine at the same time.

  6. Bungee jumping from 216 meters.

  7. Visit the prison on Robben Island.

  8. Summer concert at Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens

  9. Mzoli's Braai – This is a big barbecue in the township in which the local population and tourists meet and celebrate together.

  10. Safari with "the big 5" (elephant, buffalo, rhino, lion, leopard)

Must-sees in Cape Town

Townships in Cape Town – A "Third World" on the Edge of a Metropolis

They are the remaining scars of apartheid, a structured racial segregation in South Africa's history: the townships of Cape Town. The tiny "houses", where visitor’s must duck their heads as they enter, greatly reflect the living conditions of the residents. However, they are not dissatisfied with their simple houses! Upon visiting one of the townships, you may expect this picture of poverty to keep you away. However, once you take a couple hours to meet the people, listen to the stories and embrace this colorful and lively culture, you will want to commit to an internship or volunteer in South Africa. Dive deep into the townships and you will recognize the diversity of life within.

"If you asked people in the Township what life is like there they would not understand the question.“

- Matthias, intern in Cape Town

"South Africans are very nice people. Maybe it's the good weather. "

Sounds funny, but somehow makes sense. First, South Africans are a peaceful people. Even if a daily "how’z it?" somehow seems a cliché, it simply comes across so nicely. Secondly, who has ever completed an internship in Cape Town and complained about the weather? With 3,700 hours of sunshine a year, the Cape will serve you sun, blue sky and holiday weather á la carte! Skip the winter in your hometown and spend it in Capetown!

100% Adventure without budget

Those who are able to schedule a little more time before or after their internship program, so they can tour Africa, should definitely do so. After all, you didn’t fly all the way to and across this huge continent just to have seen only the bottom corner of it. Lesotho, "the Kingdom of Heaven" should at least be one stop on your itinerary. Particularly popular with our interns are: an overland tour through Namibia's incredibly vast desert, Botswana's National Wildlife Parks and the Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe. For those who are on a tight budget or perhaps have no funds for sightseeing, there is the possibility of joining a tour on “working” terms, as a translator, cook or assistant. Under these terms, one should not expect a vacation as there will be a daily work routine, but hey, tourists have vacations - travelers have experiences!
