You may still spot an Ostrich ambling down the road in Cape Town and sure, spectacular Table Mountain is home to more species of flora and fauna than you might have ever seen. But this scenic beautiful city on the southwestern tip of the African continent is known more as a place to spy glamourous folk than roaring lions. Take an urban safari through its streets and you'll find a thriving restaurant scene, design forward architecture, ultra-luxe hotels and cute boutiques. Add the laid-back vibe and Cape Town has all the ingredients for a fabulous holiday. Cape Town is a world away from the startling wildlife untamed jungle synonymous with South Africa. And it's the ideal urban escape for the eclectic girl like me.
