Outdoor Activities in Cape Town

There are many wonderful opportunities to enjoy your free time during an internship in Cape Town. You can go surfing in the Long Beach area where waves are consistent. But there are more interesting surfing places. For example, there is the famous Muizenberg which is a perfect surfing spot for starters, the more unknown but lovely Scarborough Beach for average surfers and the Dungeons area where the more experienced ones can challenge the sea.

Thanks to the beautiful mountains and hills around Cape Town, there are many possible areas and trails where you can go hiking. Of course, the most famous one of Cape Town and South Africa is the Table Mountain. From the city centre, there are many ways to climb to the mysterious top on which you can enjoy a breathtaking and panoramic view of Cape Town. But also the Table Mountain National Park provides wonderful moderate trails which are great for non-experienced hikers. It is an excellent possibility to extend your view during an internship in Cape Town.

Nightlife Cape Town

Discover the nightlife of Cape Town. Located in the city centre the Long Street is an eternal street full of bars, clubs, cafés and restaurants. No matter what your taste is, you are at the right place to have a wonderful night. For instance, if you would like to have one of the numerous special beers, you could go to the Beerhouse. Are you in the mood to show your dancing moves? Then you should visit the Shimmy Beach Club or Assembly. Shine during an internship in Cape Town!

If you would like to come at ease after an ‘exhausting’ week, you could go to Stellenbosch enjoying a glass of red wine or one of its other well known wines. Surrounded by mountains, the vineyards of Stellenbosch are a wonderful place to visit. From Cape Town there are numerous bus lines that will drive you to this idyllic city.

Culture of South Africa

Considering its colonial and more recent history, Cape Town has many interesting spots at which you can experience its past and the diverse South African culture. For example, visiting Robben Island is worth your time during an internship in Cape Town. Before the end of apartheid, former South African President, Nelson Mandela was imprisoned here for 18 years. Today many people worldwide visit Robben Island to honour and celebrate his life. Located 7 km outside Cape Town, many bus lines from the city centre go there every day. An interesting activity to broaden your knowledge during an internship in Cape Town.
