South Africa Cape Town

Overview of Cape Town, South Africa

South Africa Cape Town Centre

Stunningly beautiful country, sunny warm climate… could an English language homestay destination get better or be more inspiring than Cape Town in South Africa?We don’t think so, which is why we have an English Language Centre situated in the safe and happy residential zones of Cape Town at Simon’s Town, Fish Hoek and False Bay.

Our students learn much more than physical skills through their participation in athletics. The collaborative experience of pursuing and attaining a common goal in athletics is unique, as it is combined with interscholastic competition. We are  proud of our winning tradition.

Travelling to and getting around Simon’s Town and Cape Town

Simon’s Town is conveniently close to excellent transport links which make it accessible to travellers in the UK and Europe:

  • Airports. Cape Town International Airport is the second busiest airport in South Africa, situated some 20 kilometres from the city, and is a popular destination with many operators from across Europe. It also has regular flights to other popular South African destinations, such as Johannesburg and Durban.
  • Cars. If you can drive and have an appropriate licence, then hiring a car is very cheap in South Africa. Fuel too is about 1/3 of the cost in Europe, which makes hiring a car an excellent option and good way to see The Cape.

It offers one of the most scenic train rides in the world along the coast, via Muizenberg to the most southerly railway station in Africa!
