Cape Town Insta-Walks

SOUTH AFRICA’S top city resort launches their tailored ‘One&Only Cape Town Insta-Walks’ that take in the coolest cultural and foodie hotspots Cape Town has to offer.

The latest offering for guests checking into the resort is One&Only Cape Town Insta-Walks - expert led, on-foot tours of the smartest galleries, open air art installations, coffee haunts, artisan bakeries, independent boutiques and eateries the city has to offer. The One&Only Cape Town Insta-Walks are led by travel journalists and local Instagram stars Seth Shezi and Dawn Jorgensen who have developed a little black book of the most interesting, ‘instagrammable’ hotspots in the city, and they are only too pleased to share their vetted finds with guests looking for an up-close and personal view of the Mother City.

As with many other excursion offerings specifically developed for their guests, the One&Only Cape Town Insta-Walks are coordinated by Escape+Explore Private Cape Adventure, founded by local low key adventure entrepreneur Casey Ingram, recent winner of the Best Service Provider award at the recent We Are Africa conference. Passionate about providing safe, seamless, off-the-beaten track experiences for his clients, Ingram and his team handle all guests requests, feeding preferences to Seth and Dawn who in turn create tailor-made experiences guaranteed to enthrall guests looking for an otherwise different taste of the city.

As a prolific travel writer and editor of The incidental Tourist Blog, Dawn knows only too well that many visitors to a city are looking to marry tourist must-do’s with discoveries of off-the-beaten track spots. Dawn’s skill and passion lies in crafting tours that provide eye opening food and cultural activities with a certain wow factor.

Lifestyle writer, Instagram legend and man about town, Seth Shezi is no stranger to the good life – in fact he specialises in it. Seth describes himself as a ‘slave to art, travel, food, style and wine’ and with his insider knowledge of the city’s current hotpots (and most Instagrammable sights and shops too), he is the perfect companion and guide on an urban walking tour.

A typical One&Only Cape Town Insta-Walk could take in a visit to an underground dining and art destination that hosts regular emerging artist pop up events, perhaps a craft beer tasting, urban farmer’s market, a cheese-only eatery, one that’s all about bacon and a bakery that serves a different ‘doughsant’ creation every Saturday morning. Of course if guests are in the market for quirky, characterful art and gifts, Dawn and Seth are equally adept at leading guests to independent stores that may pique their interest.

One&Only Cape Town is thrilled to be offering this unique, ever-changing experience to their guests. These Insta-Walks guarantee intrepid urban explorers a taste of the city they might otherwise not find themselves – and there’s no doubt they will remember these moments (on Instagram or not) for years to come.

The launch of the One&Only Cape Town Insta-Walks offering coincides perfectly with the resort's current locals-only #OneEscape seasonal special. Beautifully equipped, waterside Marina Harbour Rooms are available from R3250 per night and valid until 22 September 2016. The special offer includes a sumptuous breakfast at Reuben's and is the perfect excuse to check into South Africa's only urban resort for a cheeky winter escape in unprecedented luxury.
