About Wander Cape Town

This blog is a bit of a passion project mine. It began as a kind of home travel blog, exploring the experiences and attractions of Cape Town, my own city, for visitors and locals. It’s still that, but it’s expanding into a resource on everything in Cape Town. With interviews, guest posts by local experts, and a focus on environmental sustainability and conscious exploration.

So, on Wander Cape Town, you’ll find tips on what to do for different budgets and interests, and the various opportunities for adventure. Along with information on Cape Town’s natural environment, sustainability efforts, and a bunch more.
