Well, it’s called the gay capital for a reason! Rest assured that you can enjoy the same rights as straight people when travelling to Cape Town. Discrimination based on sexual orientation is illegal, and same-sex marriage is legal. Cape Town is also crawling with local and tourist gays looking for a good time as there is a gay-only establishment around every corner and a calendar packed with events.
Absolutely. It is a very progressive city and known for its gay scene. However, we always suggest that you book your trip through a travel agency like Out2Africa. We specialise in gay travel to ensure everything meets your highest standards and that there are no surprises.
Where do we start! We always recommend adding a stopover in Victoria Falls, Botswana, and an island getaway to a destination like Mauritius, Mozambique, Seychelles or The Maldives to your Cape Town trip.
Well, well, you’re in for a treat if you don’t yet know the answer to this question! Cape Town is your oyster. From going up the iconic Table Mountain or Lion’s Head for a bird’s-eye-view of the city to lazing on the beach, cultural excursions, swimming with penguins, an exciting nightlife, endless list of wineries and restaurants, you will be spoilt (rotten) for choice.
We will go on forever if we have to list ALL our favourites! But whether a boutique, intimate guest house with design flair, an ultra-luxurious lodge, or a swanky mansion of a hotel is your style, we’ve got it all — and they love gay travellers, so get ready to be extra spoiled.
