Cape Town is undoubtedly one of the top tourist destinations in the world. But many come to this beautiful city on a fleeting holiday have decided to set down some roots and live here for a few months or years, or even for the rest of their lives. So if you have been eyeing our amazing career opportunities in Cape Town, but still need a little nudge to apply, here are 4 reasons why you should make the move!
Even though you have to cross the whole of Africa to get to the Mediterranean Sea, Cape Town enjoys a Mediterranean-like climate, which results in wet and cool winters and dry and warm summers (but not as warm as in Northern Africa or Southern Europe).
You can live the good life (for less)
Cape Town gets the work/life balance just right. Long day at work? Why not head to the beach to unwind before a relaxing sunset? Busy morning of classes ahead? Grab a flat white to kick-start your day. There are restaurants, wine farms, coffee shops and all the activities you need to give you one of the most balanced lifestyles imaginable. Cape Town is remarkably liveable, and it’s also still somewhat affordable. If you’re coming with even a small stockpile of foreign currency, it’s likely to be cheaper than any other international destination that can live up to Cape Town’s high standards.
Balance between urban and nature
If you lack the single-minded enthusiasm for the bucolic or the urban lifestyle, but instead you want the best of both worlds, Cape Town is offering precisely that (and more). Table Mountain, one of the oldest mountains on earth, is overlooking the lively city life of Cape Town, keeping the two environments tightly connected. Only a short drive away from the centre, this flora kingdom with its peculiar flat top is ideal for medium difficulty hikes — alone or with your dog, with family or with friends. In Cape Town one minute you will be conquering the top of the mountains and the other you will be having a full-bodied glass of South African wine in one of the many full of life café/bars and restaurants or strolling in the shopping malls and markets.
In Cape Town, it’s very unlikely you will feel like a stranger due to the city’s multicultural personality, which makes it an attractive destination for expats and digital nomads. Cape Town is the second most populous cities in South Africa. You’ll meet warm and welcoming South Africans, a few actual Capetonians, wide-eyed enthusiastic tourists and a strong contingent of expats who’ve decided to call this city home for at least the foreseeable future. This will all make it very hard to leave, and even harder to stay away.
