The Bo-kaap

The Bo-Kaap is one of Cape Town’s most distinct neighbourhoods and there’s much much to see, taste and insta snap! Situated at the foot of Signal Hill, the Bo-Kaap’s origins date back to the 1760s where rental houses were built and leased to slaves. These people, the Cape Malays, were brought from Malaysia, Indonesia and the rest of Africa to work in the Cape. To this day, the houses are a mix of Cape Dutch and Georgian architecture, in distinctive multi-coloured rows on steeply cobbled roads. It’s the perfect place to learn about our past as a country and take that memorable Instapic.

Jacaranda Trees, Pretoria

The most beautiful eruption of purples take over Pretoria as a nod to the passing of Winter and the coming of Spring.  They line the roads, especially in Brooklyn. Gorgeous to look at, they make wonderful backdrops to an insta snap!
