Friends in Cape Town

There’s just something about Cape Town.

Nobody travels to Cape Town just once because it’s the kind of place that draws you back again and again. It’s the ultimate city destination for nature lovers and active travellers, with epic mountains, beautiful beaches and a diverse line-up of wildlife on your doorstep.

It’s no wonder that Cape Town’s digital nomad and start-up scene has been in exploding in recent years. With lightning fast WiFi and some of the best food and coffee in the world, it’s the ideal place to set up office. And with so much going on in and around the city, there are plenty of incentives to tie up work so you can get out and explore.

On our city, safari and beach retreat, you can enjoy a little bit of everything that Cape Town has to offer.

What to expect on our cape town retreat

Our South Africa adventure will be split between two locations: the city and a safari lodge.

Our South Africa adventure begins in the heart of the Mother City. On arrival, you’ll meet a group of equally ambitious strangers who will become family over the next 10 days. Our welcome dinner will give you a chance to get to know each other before the real fun begins.

The next few days will be spent in a beautiful co-living villa. You’ll have fast WiFi and plenty of space to work should you need it, but there will also be a packed itinerary of business workshops, masterminds and well-being sessions to take part in if you wish. Every day, we’ll also head out on an excursion somewhere in the city and the surrounding area. Like everything else, these excursions are completely optional, but we’re sure you won’t want to miss them.

After a week in the Mother City, it’s time to head out to the South African bush! We’ll take a private transfer, where we’ll spend two nights surrounded by nature. With the chance to see the big five and experience a unique side of South Africa, you’re sure to leave refreshed and inspired.

The retreat ends in Cape Town for one final night, where we’ll reflect on the time we’ve spent together and say goodbye over a champagne sunset cruise and 3-course dinner, provided by our lead sponsor, Mediavine

Highlights of our Cape Town retreat:

  • Hang out on a beach with penguins and watch them run around on the sand
  • Hike to one of the best views in the world
  • Co-live with other digital nomads in a beach-side villa
  • Search for the big five on at least four safaris
  • Watch the sunset over Cape Town with champagne from the ocean
  • Experience local food and traditional South African music
  • Grow your blog with one-to-one guidance for experts on affiliate marketing, SEO, Pinterest marketing and more
