Soweto, South Africa
Located across from Sakhumzi Restaurant and adjacent to Thali's Snack Bar I encountered wall art that captures the spirit of the people of Soweto and all of the once segregated townships. Walk up the street and you'll encounter vendors, dancers...

Kleintuin Rd, Simon's Town, Cape Town, 7995, South Africa
If you're spending time exploring the Cape Peninsula area of South Africa, a visit with the penguin colony at Boulders Beach is a must. They made Boulders their home (wise penguins) in 1982 and you'll be surprised by how residential the setting...

5 Geelbek St, Van Dyks Bay, Gansbaai, 7220, South Africa
The small town of Gansbaai, about an hour and a half from Cape Town, South Africa, is the Great White Shark capital of the world. Every winter scores of these ocean giants descend on the small channel between Dyer Island and Geyser Rock known...

42 Trill Rd, Observatory, Cape Town, 7925, South Africa
Cozy, dim, atmospheric — Tagore's, in the artsy Observatory ("Obs") district, is quirky-cool with tons of character. It's set in an old house done up with shabby-Indo-chic décor, lending its jazz nights an eclectic, global vibe. Tagore's is smoky...

Shop 30, Hudson Building, 30 Hudson St, De Waterkant, Cape Town, 8001, South Africa
It's a weekend ritual for my cousin and his friends to pop into either The Loading Bay or Origins Roast right next door for breakfast. With a gorgeous view of the mountain, both cafés have coffee to die for and stellar food. This particular beauty...

The smell of baking bread will lure you into this family-friendly restaurant/cafe. With menu items like brioche french toast, breakfast pizza, and bircher muesli, this cafe will quickly become your default for weekend brunch. Try the almond...

Vilakazi St, Orlando West, Soweto, 1804, South Africa
Vilakazi is perhaps the most famous street in Soweto—or all of Johannesburg, for that matter. It’s the only street in the world to have produced two Nobel Prize winners—His Excellency Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela and The Most...

Top Floor, 6 Desmond St, Kramerville, Sandton, 2090, South Africa
Katy's Palace Bar is a relatively new venue, with a lot of people still unaware of it. More people should know: it's one of the best venues I've been to in a long time! It isn't open every week but when it is open, you can be sure you'll have a...

190 Frederick Dr, Northcliff, Randburg, 2115, South Africa
One afternoon, I went to the top of Northcliff Hill by the Water Tower with my brother and cousin on a random outing. From up there you can see the whole of Johannesburg. A full 360 degree view all the way to the Magaliesberg mountain range! If...

University Corner, Jorissen St & Bertha St, Johannesburg, 2050, South Africa
An amazingly curated museum, the Wits Art Museum, fondly referred to as WAM, hosts a stunning collection of contemporary and traditional African art. It's located in a bright and airy space and feels relatively undiscovered. My favorite piece was...
