Airbnb reveals top-rated Cape Town Experiences ahead of summer

As sports fans flock to Cape Town this month, Airbnb can today reveal some of the top Experiences hosted by inspiring local experts. Airbnb Experiences offer an authentic taste of what Cape Town is all about, giving travellers the chance to see Mother City through the eyes of those who love it the most – the locals.

There are Airbnb Experiences for every type of traveller – whether you’re a foodie, someone who craves adventure, a nature lover, or someone who thrives on wellness travel – there’s something for everyone in Cape Town. 

Mhinti Pato, who hosts a Township & African food experience tour, said: “I love hosting on Airbnb because I get to meet people from different countries, different backgrounds, and also share my story of growing up in a township in South Africa. I work in the NGO sector so hosting on Airbnb has allowed me to have additional income for my family, and we also now employ four people from the community. It didn’t just transform my life, it went further in transforming other people around me and my community.”
