The Mother City. A culturally diverse, nature-lover's paradise tucked between the Indian and Atlantic oceans. There are thousands of ways to describe Cape Town, but one word summarizes it all: Epic

Unsettled is bringing together 25 people from creative and entrepreneurial backgrounds to live, work, and explore Cape Town together. With breath-taking scenery, blossoming technology, entrepreneurship and creative scenes, a rich mix of cultures and a highly developed tourism industry, Cape Town is considered South Africa’s hot spot, and a beacon for emerging talent across the content.

There's little that this city doesn't offer. From its thriving nightlife and distinct music scene, to a rich selection of outdoor activities (rock climbing, surfing, hiking, biking, shark diving, and more), to the sprawling vineyards and wildlife tours just outside of the city, there are few places on earth with such diversity.
