Road Trip to Hermanus, Gansbaai, and Cape Agulhas

Visiting Cape Town? There are several Road Trips you can do from The Mother City including Cape Point, Stellenbosch, and the West Coast. We did Cape Point and Stellenbosh as day trips.

33 South Backpackers in Observatory

We found out about 33 South Backpackers from the former owner Kim Whitaker, who is currently running Once in Cape Town. We had such a fun time at Once in Cape Town that we knew that we would enjoy 33 South as well! Each of the rooms is named after a different district / suburb of Cape Town and has a unique look and feel. We stayed in Bo Kaap (the Muslim area with the colourful houses). You can see … [Read more...]

However, since getting married and having kids, it felt like our hostel days were behind us. Surprisingly, after visiting South Africa and staying in several hostels during our overland trip between Joburg and Cape Town, we … [Read more...]

Our first hostel in South Africa was at HomeBase Melville in Johannesburg so it was only fitting we stay at HomeBase Cape Town too! We had a lovely stay at the Cape Town location as it had an awesome Family Room, Communal Kitchen, Rooftop Garden, Amazing Staff, and an adorable dog named Basey! It's run by a mom and her 2 sons and it definitely has a family-friendly ambience! Here's why we … [Read more...]

The Wild Farm in Wilderness

#FarmStay I've always wondered what it would be like to stay on a farm. Well, after this week, I had to wonder no more as we were able to stay at The Wild Farm in Wilderness. From the moment we got off the Baz Bus and jumped into the Farm Shuttle and started driving up a winding dirt road, I knew this was going to be a special experience. It has become one of the highlights of our entire 2 … [Read more...]
