Solo travel can be daunting, but it doesn’t have to be boring! Whether you’re on a business trip, student exchange, or a lone adventure, Cape Town has plenty to keep you busy.
Check out the Museums
The Iziko Museum Mile is located in the City Bowl, and it’s a fantastic way to spend the day. If you’re interested in the social and political history of South Africa, visit the Castle of Good Hope, Groot Constantia, the Slave Lodge, or the District Six Museum. You could also pay a visit to the Planetarium or explore the natural history in the South African Museum.
See some art
Cape Town’s art scene is thriving, and you could spend an entire day just exploring the hundreds of gallery spaces in the Zeitz MOCAA. There are many other great art galleries, so if you’re interested in art you’ll be spoilt for choice.
Dine at a counter
Many of Cape Town’s restaurants have bar counters to dine at, which is far better than a table for one. You might even make friends with your fellow counter-diners..
