Cape Town is arguably one the most stunning cities in the world. Framed between oceans and mountains, it’s surrounded by incredible natural beauty, with Table Mountain, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, an absolute highlight. Cape Town also a place of huge diversity, lively cultures, and a vibrant nightlife. Living here is dynamic and interesting, and weekends will give you a huge variety of exciting activities. You can, for instance, go to the top of Table Mountain, visit the historic Robben Island, venture to the iconic Cape Point, or hang out on some of the many beaches. If you’re into food and design, you can also choose to visit some of the trendy markets for some culinary treats and locally designed goods. Moreover, once you venture outside of Cape Town, you’ll find gorgeous winelands and stunning National Parks that are well worth a good road trip.


A small city with rural character and friendly people, Livingstone is a welcoming and charming place. It’s also a place of natural beauty; Livingstone is situated on the mighty Zambezi River, only ten kilometres away from the famous Victoria Falls, and surrounded by the bush (and yes, elephants roam around on the outskirts of the town). Weekends will give you the opportunity to encounter wildlife on game drives in a nearby National Park, to venture onto the Zambezi for a boat cruise, or to get soaked by the spray of the falls. For the adventurous type, there’s plenty to explore too. Known as the Adventure Capital of Africa, Livingstone offers dare-devil activities such as white water rafting, bungee jumping, or gorge swinging. A tourist hub spot for good reason, the Zambian town offers an abundance of character and opportunity.


Moshi is a small town with an impressive setting; it’s situated below the majestic Kilimanjaro mountain range. One of the most iconic attractions in Africa, Mount Kilimanjaro is the continent’s highest peak, and an incredible sight. Blessed with this view, the busy tourist town of Moshi is a bustling network of food markets and restaurants, with an impressive array of colors, smells, and sounds. Undoubtably, the most iconic inhabitants of Moshi are the Maasai, a traditional warrior tribe who will impress you with their vibrant culture and warm nature. The area is also rich in wildlife. With monkeys in the trees and lizards sunning themselves on the rocks in your garden, living here is a perfect balance between integrating with the Tanzanians and enjoying the incredible natural setting.
