Twelve Apostles Mountain Range

The Twelve Apostles Mountain Range forms the back of Table Mountain, where you’ll find one of the most scenic stretches of coast in the world. It runs roughly from Kloof Nek (the saddle between Table Mountain and Lion’s Head) to Hout Bay. Victoria Road runs along the entire length of the series of mountains, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean on the one side, and the magnificent crags, ridges, ravines, and gorges of the Twelve Apostles on the other.

What’s in a name?
You’d think you’d be able to count 12 peaks, given the name of the series of mountains. You’d be wrong. There are 18 peaks, although it really depends how you count. The theory is that if you count the buttresses only (that’s the part that protrudes, which might be made up a few peaks), there are 12. Not that it matters—you’ll soon be distracted enough by the scenery to forget all about pedantry.

Each peak, however, has its own name: from north to south, they are Kloof, Fountain, Porcupine, Jubilee, Barrier, Valken, Kasteel,..

Live Music Venues in Cape Town

Cape Town is a creative hub of note, and wherever you go in the city you’ll hear music spilling into the streets. From small suburban music clubs to moody city jazz venues and stadiums, Cape Town has it all. Here, in this cosmopolitan melting pot at the tip of Africa, you’ll find world-class jazz, folk, rock, hip hop, afro-funk, indie, and electronic venues to support a thriving music scene.

Café Roux, Noordhoek and City Bowl
Café Roux is a firm favourite in Noordhoek, and their more recently opened City Bowl venue is quickly earning itself the same status. Here, you’ll findf just about any genre of music, from folk and acoustic to blues and pop and everything in between. The City Bowl venue is urban chic and stylish, while the Noordhoek one has a more laid-back feel. Both venues host some of South Africas biggest acts on a weekly basis, with local up-and-coming acts performing every night.

Cape Town Electronic Music Festival 2018: All you need to know

The Cape Town Electronic Music Festival (CTEMF) is a sonic treat for music-lovers. It was established in 2012, and has fast gained recognition and one of the most relevant and forward-thinking events on Africa’s music festival calendar. It takes place in Atlantic Studios just 15 minutes from the Cape Town City Bowl. International pioneers and innovators share the stage with the best of the South African electronic scene. There are few other festivals that boast such diverse audiences, along with such an acclaimed line-up.

The venue
In previous years, CTEMF took place in the Cape Town City Hall, but in 2018 it’s moved to a fantastic new venue in Milnerton. Atlantic Studios, for the rest of the year, functions as a fully fledged film studio. The result is a modern and minimalist setting with plenty of space to get into the groove. Expect multiple stages, impressive lights, and most importantly, serious sound.

The artists
The 2018 edition of CTEMF brings us one of the most impressive li..

Where to get inked in Cape Town

Thinking of getting some new ink? Whether it’s your first time or your hundred-and-first, it’s important to find a trusted artist. We asked some beautifully tattooed Capetonians what they think, and came up with a list of artists that locals love. They’re diverse in style, so there’s something for everyone. We’ve taken care of finding the right artists. All you need to do is book your session.

Handpoked Human Canvases, Vredehoek
Nichole Enslin is the artist behind Handpoked Human Canvases. Enslin started her career in design, but found she missed human connection. A few friends offered up their skin to practice on, and before long people from all over town were contacting her to get their own hand-poked design. She specialises in beautiful, intricate hand-poked designs. Think stippled floral designs, insects, and planets. She also has a penchant for the surreal, creating works with stunning detail. Enslin works from her flat in Vredehoek. She likes the intimacy, which suits the hand-p..

Best Trail Runs in Cape Town

Trail running is incredibly popular in Cape Town. With a mountain and surrounding forests within the city’s borders creating a multitude of established hiking and mountain biking trails, most of which are shared with trail runners, it’s easy to see why Cape Town is such a trail runner’s paradise. Here’s a look at five of the best trail running routes in Cape Town.

The Pipe Track
One of the most popular trail running routes is the Pipe Track. Popular with casual hikers due to its proximity to the City Bowl, its also a favourite among trail runners for a quick after-work run. Starting just off the top of Kloof Nek, at the entrance towards the Table Mountain Cableway, the trail follows a water pipeline that runs along the top of Camps Bay all the way past Bakoven, offering some incredible views of the beaches below and the mountain looming overhead. The trail is a there-and-back route about 6 km (3.7 mi) to Corridor Ravine, and while it’s predominantly fairly flat and mostly smooth grave..
