Ways to Enjoy Cape Town from Far Away

Safari webcams are all the rage in South Africa and a wonderful way to pass the time, particularly if you’re craving some scenic seascapes or hankering for the sights and sounds of one of the world’s most beautiful cities.

Here’s what to do if you need a taste of Cape Town right now!

Webcams in and Cape Town

There are a few webcams in Cape Town where you can look in on the Mother City right now and enjoy familiar scenes without the crowds. So, grab a glass of that Cape Town wine you’ve been saving for a rainy day, pull up a chair and spend some scenic time in the Mother City without leaving your home.

An internet search will reveal some live as well as regularly updated views over Cape Town’s wonderful beaches and mountainscapes. There are webcams at the V&A Waterfront, Sea Point, Camps Bay, Stellenbosch, and even one at Addo Elephant Park along the Garden Route if you feel like a change of scenery.

Since the advent of online tourism this year, many of Cape Town’s top sites have uploaded virtual tours of their venues for your viewing pleasure.

You can take a look inside Robben island, visit the penguins at Boulders Beach, amble around Groot Constantia, or take a virtual ride up Table Mountain in a cable car.
