100 Best Scenic Pics of Cape Town & Western Cape

Journey with us as we discover some of the most beautiful pictures of our magnificent city 

Last update 09 November, 2016.

Not only is Cape Town known for beautiful views, but we’ve also been selected as one of the most creative cities in the world! Beating out bustling cities like Tokyo, Amsterdam and others, the Mother City is recognised as a creative hub – we did win the World Design Capital title after all in 2014! Be enthralled by the beauty of our city here:

We all know that the Mother City is one (if not the one) of the most picturesque cities in the world. Time and time again locals and tourists alike are positively blown away by the sheer beauty and awesomeness that is our pretty city, compelling them to snap, post, like and share countless incredible images of Cape Town across all social media platforms.

Thus, we felt it was only fitting to celebrate the natural splendour of Cape Town through your eyes – and your camera lens – by giving you the spotlight for the amazing pictures you post online.

We’re inviting amateur and professional photographers (and of course all our readers) to journey with us as we, together with NAC Helicopters Cape Town, search for the 10 most striking Instagram snaps of our gorgeous city each month until we reach our target of 100 images in October 2016.

What’s more, every month NAC Helicopters Cape Town will pick one lucky iger who will win a single seat for themselves in a sharing flight of the company’s choice.

How do you win? It is easy! All you need to do is take as many awesome shots of Cape Town that you can each month and tag them with #CapeTownMagScenic. The 10 best images of the month, including the winning snap, and their creators, will be featured right here every first Monday of the following month. Come Tuesday, the Insta-race is back on to find next month’s ultimate Mother City pic. Happy snapping!
