It’s no secret that we love Cape Town. We love it so much, we made a video dedicated to expressing that. That got us thinking who else loves sharing the wonderful parts of the Mother City with the world? Thus, the #WhyILoveCTE competition was born. We asked you to show us how much you love the city by submitting videos.
We received tons of cool entries, but only 10 made it to the finals. Throughout August and September, you voted for your favourites. Which finally lead to a winner of a R5000 V&A Waterfront gift voucher. In case you missed the awesome videos, here they are again (in no particular order) for you to enjoy.
Dayne Cary showed us how to have fun with a group of friends sand boarding and sunsets.
Vlogger Adam Spires and his family take us on a road trip from Hermanus to Cape Town. Rainbows, the Gardens and plenty of wind to play with
Hiking is a huge part of many Captonain’s life. Kirsten-Leigh de Klerk takes us on a journey to the Woodstock Caves.
Whale season is upon us, but you have never seen whales like in Calvin Munhuweyi’s video. Watching them move is hypnotising.
I filmed these Southern Right Whales in Muizenberg this afternoon. How awesome a sight is this? Cape Town is full of surprises. #WhyILoveCTE
