We started our Cape Town blog to get Cape Town locals excited about their city, and to encourage visitors to get stuck in, explore off the beaten track and discover for themselves what make Cape Town a truly amazing city!

Welcome to Our Blog,

Cape Town Insider Beauty


We love trying new products and experiences and reviewing them on the blog. We have a passion for local and cruelty-free brands and love to showcase them here. We’re excited for where the beauty industry in South Africa is moving and we’re really glad to be a small part of that.

Cape Town Insider Lifestyle


We’re creating a space for a curated lifestyle Cape Town blog. We get to live our best life and we want you to get the inside(r) scoop! We’re often invited to the hottest openings and launches in Cape Town – we blog about features and reviews on decor, fashion and overlaps with food, wine and travel.

Cape Town Insider Restaurants


This has always been at the heart of our Cape Town blog and was the reason we started blogging back in 2011. Cape Town’s restaurant scene is eclectic and there is something to suit everyone’s palate so have a browse around – we’re sure that you’ll find something to sink your teeth into!

Cape Town Insider is a lifestyle blog edited by sisters Kath and Meg who have called Cape Town their home for over a decade. They love to share new places to explore, restaurants to visit and must-visit experiences. Born out of a passion for writing and fun experiences, our Cape Town blog is a collection of the things, places and occasions that we love in our hometown. Cape Town Insider is a showcase for products and brands that we have tested ourselves, as well as launches and events that we attend.

Because Cape Town is home to such a diverse range of experiences and opportunities, the content that we cover is often quite varied and eclectic – if there’s something that you’d like to see on the blog, please get in touch and we’ll try to make it happen! Our readers are really important to us, most of the restaurant visits are paid for by ourselves, as are the products that we test and review. We will always let you know if we’ve been invited to give a review, sent free products or paid for a post. But please know, we’ll always be 100% honest in the Cape Town blog posts that we write.
