Coliving in Cape Town
Oct 19 - Dec 17 2021 (7 weeks)
Meet South Africa
We’re pretty certain you'll love coliving in Cape Town. How so? Well, it’s been one of the Tribe’s favorite destinations.
Even though we're coming back for the sixth time, words can’t describe this African paradise. The ‘Rainbow Nation’ is rich in history, immensely diverse in its cultural heritage, and packed to the brim with adventure – it’s what dreams are made of. Come along and #MeetSouthAfrica.
Coliving Remote in Cape Town
If you need fun adventure in your life, it may be Cape Town you’re looking for;
the perfect mix of a big city and bucket loads of adventure.
Catch The Waves in Muizenberg
Known for its famous colorful huts on the sidewalk, this is a laid-back neighborhood with a multi-cultural vibe. If you want to try kitesurfing or surfing, you can rent a board and wetsuit for as little as $7 for the day. Waves come in all sizes – for beginners and experts!
Cape of Good Hope
Check out the Cape Peninsula in a single day trip. Recharge your body and feed your mind with guided commentary, fabulous scenic cycling and easy hikes. No doubt, one of the Tribe’s favorite day trips!
In The African Bush
Experience true, raw nature: that iconic African sunrise while elephants pass by, lions roar, and zebras race through the savannah. Whatever you do, don’t leave South Africa without having an encounter with the ‘Big Five’.
Conquer Table Mountain
More than just a mountain, it is the core of the ‘mother city’ that divides Cape Town into its zones. All around, you’ll find public gardens, wild forests, hiking trails, pristine beaches, and much more. It’s a steep hike, truly rewarding, but for the ‘light’ experience, a cable car is waiting to zip you up.
Let's Get Dirty
Lonely dirt roads and winding single tracks are there for all biking needs; an adventurous way to explore the outskirts of Cape Town.
Constantia is known as the ‘Beverly Hills’ of Cape Town with its sprawling mansions and lush vineyards. Taste the award-winning wines at Groot Constantia, most famous for its Sauvignon Blanc.
Sundowners on Lions Head
Take in the breathtaking view of Cape Town from atop Lions Head, day or night. Some do it for sunrise, others for sunset or even for the full moon. Yet others, go up to glide down…
Spend the day picnicking on the lawns, strolling through the Protea garden, discovering interesting plant species in the Botanical Society Conservatory or check out the 130m Centenary Tree Canopy. During the summer, there are amazing concerts going on.
Neighbour Goods Market
...is everyone’s favorite. Who doesn’t love good food and good company? This is where you’ll get farm-fresh and organic foods. The best thing to do to kick off the weekend. Discover cute jewelry and beautiful textiles (and face masks!).

I’m New to This, How Does it Work?
WiFi Tribe is a membership-based community of remote professionals who travel together without sacrificing their careers. Our travel style is a bit unconventional–it's collaborative, community-focused, and even more fulfilling because we get to share it. Each Chapter is a moment in time where we colive, cowork, and explore a new country, getting our work done during the week and adventuring in our downtime.
Discover why we love to wander the world on our own terms.
Are there changes to Chapters due to COVID?
We have a responsibility to keep our members and the local communities that host us as safe as possible while we continue to travel together.
As you read through our guidelines below, you will see a combination of local government guidelines and the CDC, WHO, and RKI recommendations to ensure safety for everyone joining us on a chapter. In addition, country-specific measures to each Chapter will be shared with attending members during the 2-week online meet-and-greet before the Chapter.
Every Tribe member has been welcomed into WiFi Tribe because we felt that there was an alignment with our 6 values: Respect, Humility, Camaraderie, Curiosity, Passion, and Inclusion. Now, it is more important than ever that we choose to live by them every day. We will enforce the following protocols as necessary, but we are confident that every member of this Chapter will respect fellow Tribe members and the local community.
