Why come to Ih Cape Town

International House Cape Town is perfectly located between mountains, sea and close to all the major tourist attractions. The Atlantic ocean is only 50 meters away and can be seen from our roof top terrace. The Sea Point Promenade is very popular and runs along the coast line and nice neighbourhoods for around 7 km.
There are a lot of shops, cafes and restaurants around the school and a bus that brings you directly into the city centre or to some of the most beautiful beaches in Cape Town. Sea Point is a very safe area and no problem to walk around freely. 

The school has an extensive social programme which is run by interns and the social coordinator. Cape Town has so many activities and things to offer that you will never be bored during your stay here. Some of the activities are hiking Table Mountain, learning about the history of South Africa and Nelson Mandela on Robben Island, have dinner at traditional African restaurant, party on the famous party street Long street, compete against your class mates in paintball, go karting or mini golf, visit the Aquarium and taste wine in the oldest wine region South Africa. The list is endless and so is the fun! We will also help you book day and multi day tours like visiting Cape Point, going on a safari or encountering the Great White sharks whilst cage diving. 

Please inquire if you have any questions regarding the social programme and tours.
