WATCH: Magnificent Cape Town video is all the #LoveSA wanderlust

Cape Town has a spark that ignites the heart of tourists and locals alike. Everywhere you look - there is beauty, from the contrasting mountains and thriving ocean.

Cape Town can give anyone a sense of wanderlust. 

The Mother City

Capetonians are proud to call it home - a vibrant and constant holiday feel, surges through the locals and tourists who visit its shores. It is no secret that the beaches of the Mother City are world-renowned and it is home to the towering natural wonder, Table Mountain.

The locals are always friendly and there is a true South African feel whereever you go. The natural beauty in Cape Town has created an Urban Eden of life, as we are home to some of the most astounding African forna and flora with stunning views to boot. Nothing beats the hiking views that the city has - from Lions Head in the city to the Storms River Route suspension bridge on the Garden Route - a popular Cape Town road trip.

It is a go-to destination for all - where one can unwind and every local knows that December in Cape Town is 'Ke-Dezemba' - the must get to destination for an amazing summer.

This footage is the latest testament to its appeal, captured by Mark Wigsman and showing the magical Mother City and surrounding areas in all her glory. Wigsman is a creative entity and prides himself in the creation of arts in all its forms. Originating from Amsterdam in Netherlands but living in South Africa - he provides us with an outsider view of Cape Town and we are filled with pride after watching this clip.

Local travel is the most lekker thing out there. He is an avid traveller but remains loyal to the Mother City and we agree.
