This will mark our 7th Chapter in Cape Town! Since we first set foot here 4 years ago, the "Mother City" has become one of the Tribe's most loved and desired destinations. It's not for the faint-of-heart, but those who seek out a true adventure and jaw-dropping natural beauty will find their happy place here. During the week, we're discovering a buzzing, coastal cosmopolitan city together, and our weekends are for legendary adventures.
Experience Cape Town with the Tribe
Take on Cape Town with the Tribe and discover a new side to the Mother City. Open your mind to the cocreated community experiences, adventures, and classic WiFi Tribe moments that'll make our time here one of a kind.
1. Find serendipitous motivation
"Members were motivating me to work productively by sharing their own tips and inspiring stories of entrepreneurship and travel"
2. Kloof, scoot, and seal snorkel with friends
"Kloofing with a few members of the group and seal snorkeling with others! Oh, and Vespa-ing around town with friends"
3. Jump in the car for road trips & spontaneous dance parties
"One of my favorite moments was in the middle of a road trip to the southern tip of Africa, my car pulled off the road and had a spontaneous dance break for a few minutes. It was fun and life-giving..."
4. Organize a local safari experience
"I wasn't very up for doing a "rich & white" safari and decided to go [with] the Tribe. It turned out to be one of the most genuine experiences of my life!"
5. Come together under the stars
"Fave memory - a giant 16 person singing cuddle puddle on picnic blankets under the stars at an after-dark winery. Classic WiFI Tribe"
6. Grab a board and go surfing
Head to Muizenberg for one of the best surf spots in South Africa for beginners - thanks to the consistent waves and gently sloping sand bottom of the beach.
7. Embrace the sundowner culture
Cape Town is immersed in the most breathtaking views, add a sunset, a drink, a stunning landscape and maybe an occasional whale fin - you have the perfect moment.
8. Take a different perspective
Step off the top, at 1000 meters above sea level, and rappel into pure vertical space, if you love the adrenaline kick, this is a must!
Meet the Chapter Host
Shelby is originally from Ohio but has been finishing her doctorate at UCLA while living in LA. As if she wasn't busy enough, she also runs an educational subscription box for kids who want to learn about social justice.
The often repeated sentiment about Shelby is that she truly cares. She's always up for a chat, to lend a hand to help, and will find ways to make a Chapter the most memorable experience for everyone.
Our Home in Cape Town
We are staying in the popular neighborhood of Green Point, it's known for its parks, sleek restaurants, and easy access to the scenic Sea Point Promenade. We've stayed in this area for past Chapters, and now are staying in new homes this time around.
We'll stay across 4 apartments that are all in the same building and 1 more home that's a 5-minute walk away.
Each apartment has a similar setup and all bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms. The 1st apartment building has a rooftop pool with loungers and BBQ, and our 2nd home three lounges both inside and out.
Good to Know
Due to ongoing drought, South Africa may practice load shedding during our Chapter. This can impact electricity availability and internet stability, though power shortages are advertised in advance to help plan. If our homes are affected, MiFi devices and local SIM cards will be available as backups but we may experience some outages.
Walking alone at night isn't advised, we'll take more Ubers than normal here to safely explore the nightlife.
For every room that doesn't have A/C, there's a fan available to stay cool. Temps at night aren't too hot, they over around 63° F/17° C.
