My City Guide

City Lodge: #CityEscapes – Touring The City {Part 2}

Today I’m back with part 2 of my amazing stay at Road Lodge Cape Town International Airport. So when I got the offer to be a tourist in my own city, of course I was ever so ready to play the part. My aunt is visiting us from Dubai so I thought that it would just be fitting to take her along and see what she’s been missing out on while living in the UAE.


She’s never been on the City Sightseeing Cape Town bus and its a “Must” for every Capetonian or someone visiting. Everybody knows how much I love Cape Town’s beloved red bus so obviously it was the first thing that we would do. We drove around the Cape taking in the sights and sounds. The weather definitely started changing but that didn’t put a damper on the mood.


We hopped back onto the bus and got off at the last stop which is the V&A Waterfront. I love love love cruising the waters of the V&A and I knew the waters would be a bit rough because of the weather but being the stubborn noodle that I am, I didn’t let that put me off. Seeing that I’ve already cruised the canal on City Sightseeing Cape Town’s Shosholoza , we decided that the Jolly Roger would be right on point. We got entertained on board and I have to stay that I felt like a kid … Which is a good thing in my opinion.


Bringing out my inner tour guide, she wanted to see Cape Town from a bird’s eye so obviously The Wheel Of Excellence was next on the cards. My aunt felt that it gave her a taste of London and we could even see Table Mountain while rotating in a 360 degree angle.


After the adventurous day, we headed back to Road Lodge Cape Town International Airport where we ordered in. I have to say that it was amazing getting back in to our cozy room after being out in the cold all day and the hot shower after? PERFECTION. Who knew that touring Cape Town would be this affordable. Staying over in the Cape for 24hours? Follow this guide! Easy on the pocket, loads of fun and leave your heart behind because you’ll definitely be back for more. 🙂

*A huge Thanks to Natasha and team for making my stay and touring such a pleasure. I had loads of fun!
