While the 37-year-old is a jet setter of note, she previously opened up to House and Garden SA, explaining that Cape Town is one of her favourite travel destinations. “I’ve been around the world, and trust me, I feel like Cape Town is all the continents put in one.”


From the stunning beaches to Table Mountain and more – the Mother City is, indeed, a beautiful destination. Here are three reasons Cape Town is so magnificent.

1. Colourful Bo-Kaap homes

Bo-Kaap is one of the destinations in Cape Town which is undoubtedly a cultural hub of note, with deep-rooted historical significance, especially for Cape Malay people. Overflowing with colourful homes, Bo-Kaap was originally established as a settlement during the colonial period in the Cape, with slaves brought from India, the Middle East, Africa, and more, creating an amalgamation of cultures. It is beautiful, rich in tradition, and a place of splendour.

2. Cape Town beaches are exquisite
