Cause baby there ain't no mountain high enough... Ain't no valley low enough... Ain't no river wide enough... To keep me from getting to you babe… 🎶 This is our mantra today because it’s #worldmountainday ! In the background you can see the colourful neighbourhood Bo Kaap and two of our beautiful mountains: Lion’s Head and Table Mountain. Did you know that Table Mountain is one of the new 7 Wonders of Nature? No? Then it’s about time you hike this beast and really get to know it!

“I'm Lena, a 21-year-old political science student from Germany who's currently working as a CEO (Chief Entertainment Officer) at Once. The loves of my life are my friends, music, secondhand clothes, books and of course Cape Town. I've traveled to a lot of places and countries in my life. Cape Town caught me, I fell in love with it from the first moment on. It's my third time here and the reason why I keep coming back to the city is easy: the people. You meet them at every corner - different people with different souls and different cultures. Cape Town is so diverse, which for me is the best characteristic a city can have. If I would have to chose my favorite place I would definitely go for a Touch of Madness in Observatory, the Labia Theatre and Kalk Bay. All of them are places with beautiful people and a very chilled vibe.“
Lena is on the plane back home to Germany now. Have a good flight sunshine, we will miss you! 🌞

WE LOVE STREET ART! We love it so much... we even had a mural painted in our reception of our Once in Joburg hotel. Feel the vibe.

Do you want to see the Big Five in the wild and not just in pictures? Then come to South Africa and experience lions 🦁, elephants 🐘 , buffalo 🐃 and company in their natural habitat. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There are countless opportunities for safaris around Joburg, but the most popular is definitely the Kruger Park, which is a 5 hour drive from the city. Check out our website for all the experiences!
