Hi! My name is Aimeé and I’m originally from Cape Town, South Africa. For majority of this year I’ll be traveling (looking for people to join me as well!) but I’d be more than happy to host you when I am at home again. I’m 18 years old and I’m currently au pairing in a small countryside village in France - I have weekends off so will travel to nearby countries as much as I can :) After au pairing I would like to backpack and/or travel around Europe.

Solo travel experience

I was just in Cape Town solo for several days in May. Stayed at the Southern Sun The Cullinan. Hotel has free shuttle to/from the marina. I rode the Big Red bus 1 day to get acquainted with the city and hop on and off at Table Mountain, the gardens and a few beach stops. Booked a sunrise hike and city bike tour with Viator and did a seal snorkel and wine tour too. Uber is safe there. I was told by locals as a single woman not to be wandering alone after dark.

Solo travel experience

I went to Cape Town a few months ago and stayed in Sea Point. A beautiful city by the Sea. My hotel was the Marriott, one block away from the ocean. Amazing food everywhere even from the supermarket deli. I was there for 10 days solo and had a great time. Very safe and walkable. People were nice ans kind. Mojo market in Sea Point is amazing. Uber is easy to take to Victoria and Alfred waterfront. I went to Canal walk and Bo-Kaap and the long march of freedom exhibit across from canal walk and museum.

Solo travel experience

Cape Town is fantastic. Safe before 6pm. It is very walkable. International cuisine. Great curries, even from Woolworths CT. Wine tours are aesthetically, visually and gastronomically pleasing. The cape tour has unbeatable views of cliffs and oceans. If you love history, go to the Jewish Museum or visit Mandela's old prison. Because Cape Town is in the shadow of Table Mountain, it just inspires a sense of awe and oneness with nature. Game drives are...unreal. Everyone speaks English! Plenty of boutique hotels, or stay in a double bedroom in an upscale hostel.
