Welcome to South Africa. Your Journey Begins Now.
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. 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, and a booming creative scene, there are few places on earth with such diversity.

This experience is about you. It’s about taking an intentional break from your routine, finding new perspective, building new relationships, growing new ideas, and exploring with intention among an incredible backdrop of people and place. We provide housing, workspace, and an unforgettable experience filled with regular dinner parties, peer-to-peer workshops, happy hours, and excursions. From the moment you arrive, you will experience Cape Town like a local.
Unsettled Cape Town Highlights
We’ve designed this experience to give you the freedom to fully immerse yourself in one of Africa’s most culturally rich and outdoors-driven destinations, while still staying productive. From curated dinner conversations in townships and spontaneous penguin adventures to vineyard tours, surf lessons, sunrise hikes and productivity workshops, your Cape Town experience opens you to endless opportunities for growth, connection, and inspiration.
You’ll be living in the heart of the city’s best neighborhoods in stunning 2 and 3-bedroom apartments where downtown, our coworking space, and the best restaurants and food are within walking distance. Just a short bike ride or Uber ride away is the stunning beachside neighborhood of Camps Bay, that offers the most scenic views, sunshine, vibrant community feel, and beachside vibes all within arm’s reach of the city. You can hike up Table Mountain, bike along the coast, or go for a swim – all in an afternoon.
Full-time access to a local coworking space in the heart of downtown, or work like many other Capetonian locals in the city’s coffee shops.
Hiking trails, wine farms, and surfing and kitesurfing spots. Stay overnight in a cabin on Table Mountain, or for those a little more bold, there’s also paragliding and shark cave diving!
Lunch & learns. Peer-to-peer workshops. Family-style dinners. Themed conversations & discussions. Curated events & local mixers.
Cafe, bar and gallery hopping, beach and outdoor workouts, insane beauty where the ocean meets the mountains, countryside drives – a hiker and wine lover’s dream.
Rich cultural and political history, insanely good food and wines, combined with a vibrant art and music scene, yoga, cycling and an outdoor active culture.
Truly a life changing experience! A fantastic blend of community but with great potential to find what your soul is seeking. Take that first step to begin your Unsettled experience, you will not regret it!
This whole experience has reminded me again that no amount of comfort and security is worth a life of mediocrity that kills your dreams. Thanks to everyone that made this month amazing in Cape Town.
For me this entire year has been dedicated to stepping out of my comfort zone, pushing my limits and development as a human being. Unsettled was the cherry on top to my “Year of New” and I would have never dreamed that I would meet such an amazing group of people. They truly made the experience for me greater than I could ever imagine!
