Boring Cape Town Chick

Boringcapetownchick.com was started in 2012 and has gone through various shapes and form. Through all the changes it remained a very interesting source of information for anyone interested in Cape Town. Topics range from "Things to do in Cape Town", to the author's personal bucket list of places to visit in Africa.

My City By Night

Managed by three guys from Cape Town, this blog still remains one of the most entertaining and interesting blogs on this list. Topics are mostly entertainment-related, specifically events and music. Well worth a read if you, well, love entertainment. Who doesn't, right?
