Cape Town is a beautiful, multi-cultural city with amazing backdrops for snapping mountain or beach photos, colourful characters and architectural and cultural delights as well as unique wildlife like penguins at Boulders Beach (Note to Self: Add this to Top #Selfie Spots in Cape Town list)

Here is our list of 10 of the Top #Selfie spots in Cape Town  (in no particular order)

  1. Chapman’s Peak Drive:
    You’re 100% correct. We are a little bit biased but we see so many selfies being taken at the view point on our drive that we think we have a compelling argument for being one of the Top #Selfie spots in Cape Town
  2. Cape Point in the Cape of Good Hope Section, Table Mountain National Park:
    Dramatic cliffs, plunging into the sea and a symbolic “tip of Africa” feeling, makes Cape Point one of the Top #Selfie spots in Cape Town
  3. Table Mountain:
    One of the 7 Natural Wonders of the World. There is no doubt that a walk or cable car ride to the summit of Table Mountain for that “Shot-from-the-Top” has to be one of the Top #Selfie spots in Cape Town
  4. Table Mountain:
    Getting that selfie shot with Table Mountain in the background, is a classic and iconic image that needs to be in any album of Cape Town.  Try and get your Selfie shot in one of the yellow frames that are positioned around Cape Town in 3 venues:  V&A Waterfront, Signal Hill and Eden on the Bay in Blouberg
  5. Lions Head:
    It’s just one of those picture perfect mountain tops with almost 360° views of Cape Town City and Table Mountain.  Definitely ranking in as one of the Top #Selfie spots in Cape Town in spite of the effort required to climb up Lion’s Head.
  6. Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens:  
    Few gardens can match the grandeur and setting of Kirstenbosch against the eastern slopes of Table Mountain and the beauty and diversity of South Africa’s indigenous flora.  Take a Selfie from the Boomslang. The most beautiful garden in Africa is also one of the Top #Selfie spots in Cape Town.
  7. Under the sea, Cape Town Diving: 
    Go down under; down where it’s wetter; and where some say better and get a selfie under water for a Top Cape Town #Selfie shot. In a kelp forest or face to face with a great white shark or snorkelling with seals. (#Selfies on land are SO 2014!)
  8. Bo-Kaap:
    This lively suburb has brightly coloured houses and cobble stoned streets, and is the historical centre of Cape Malay culture in Cape Town. Characters and Colour will characterize your selfie here , which will be bright and light and fun.
  9. Cape Winelands:
    Cape Town is wine country and taking a selfie in the vineyards, in front of a historical building, on a cellar tour or tasting wine, makes this vast region of wine and wine estates and mountain backdrops one of the Top #Selfie spots in Cape Town.
  10. Colourful Beach Huts:
    On the False Bay coastline in the villages of MuizenbergSt James and Fish Hoek are brightly coloured Victorian beach houses, which are typical of Cape Town and make an excellent backdrop for the perfect beach selfie  and one of the Top #Selfie spots in Cape Town.

#Selfies are here to stay and with Selfie Sticks being one of the top gifts over the festive season, Selfies are getting bigger and better with that extra length to fit in your friend and the scene behind you.
