Welcome to Love My Cape Town, a travel blog and website exploring Cape Town and its immediate surrounds.
We are two families, one British (well, half British) the Pattenden’s and one South African (very Afrikaans) the Fourie’s, both calling lovely Cape Town (Kaapstad) home. We love our city and surrounds and can think of nothing better than to be starry-eyed tourists in our city whenever we get the opportunity, which practically means every weekend and whenever there’s a half-gap to explore.
We love food, wine, the arts, music, adventure, the great outdoors AND we are PARENTS!
Our mission is to find places and experiences where we can all enjoy what we love (which includes our kids?) and have truly remarkable experiences without feeling that we’re missing out because we’re parents. Everyone needs to feel included – except of course on date nights and romantic weekends, which every couple needs. We include plenty of options for ‘big-people’ to have fun without the kids occasionally too.
It provides us with immense joy to help direct families to great places and fun experiences we can vouch for, without the hassle of trawling the internet for hours. We hope that you will use our page and resources as your ‘go-to’ guide.
A big shout out to Natalie Justice, a travel and tourism expert, who started this page/blog and we are honored to build on the great work that she has done.
