My Cape Town favourites (and farewell video!)

From gorgeous beaches to seaside running routes and urban parks, there is so much to love about Cape Town. This South African city is known for its stunning views and mountains, and welcomes visitors with a smile and delicious food. Here is a local's guide to some Cape Town favourites, after more than four years living in the city. 

The village of the fairies: exploring Hogsback (plus video!)

It's a perfect weekend escape if you're looking for rustic charm, quiet evenings by the fireside, and days spent exploring the woodlands. Here's what you can see and do in this charming South African village.
