Studentlust (n): a strong desire or impulse for students to wander or travel and explore the world. Join us each Wednesday as we share the travel destinations we’re currently lusting over!
From the location to the adventure to the culture, it makes sense why you should visit Cape Town, the favourite holiday destination of many. Find out our reasons for why you should be rushing to visit the southern most city of Africa!
Up for some adventure? Hike to the summit of Table Mountain for an extraordinary view overlooking Cape Town. Not wanting to exercise on your holiday? No problem! Hop on a cable car instead to the top with rotating floors and huge windows that offer a spectacular experience.
Right in Cape Town’s backyard, you will find the amazing vineyard of Constantia Valley, home to 8 award winning wine estates. The wine-producing region has had an uninterrupted history of wine-making since the 1600’s. Indulge in cellar tours, wine tasting, or saddle up and go horseback for a tour through the wine farms.
The beaches of Cape Town rival even Australia’s best waterfronts. There is plenty to do and see near the water whether you are looking to spend the day tanning, whale-watching from the shore, swimming, surfing, or shark-cage diving. And best of all- stop by Boulders Beach where you will find 3,000 adorable South African penguins waddling along the white sandy shore!
The ultimate reason you should be packing your bags and visit Cape Town is how affordable it is! The South African Rand has lost its value, giving tourists lots of spending power. Hotel? £49.79. Pint of beer? £1.15. Cup of coffee? £1.12. And of course, you can always count on the affordable deals on flights from StudentUniverse.
