Sarah Duff shares her Cape Town

This is an interview with Sarah Duff where I asked her to tell me more about herself and to share some of her favourite Cape Town sights.

Q: Tell us more about Sarah and what she does for a living.

I've just left my job as web editor and photojournalist at Getaway Magazine to start a freelance writing career, start a digital social media and content strategy agency, TribeFox, ( and launch a mobile yoga studio, MoloYoga (

Q: How did you get into your career?

I did an internship at Getaway Magazine. 

Q:  A misconception about freelancers is ...

That they can go to the beach and drink beer whenever they want. Freelancing is actually takes a lot more work and dedication than being an employee. 

Q: Your life motto is:

Have as much fun as possible. 

Q: With enough funds at your disposal, where in the world (Other than Cape Town of course) would you take a gap year?

I'd love to travel around South America - a continent I haven't started exploring yet. 

Cape Town

Q: One spot in Cape Town where you relax – any place.

Beta Beach, Camps Bay

Q: If you had one day to show a friend from overseas something in Cape Town, where will you take him and why?

An early morning walk along Camps Bay beach before it gets busy, breakfast on Kloof Street, a hike up the mountain, lunch at the Rumbullion, an afternoon walk along the Sea Point promenade and drinks at the Power and the Glory (13 b Kloofnek Road, Tamboerskloof)

Sea Point promenade a favourite walk of Sarah Duff

Q: What is your favourite restaurant and which dish do you enjoy?

I love the RoundHouse for special occasion dinners. Anything from their menu is superb. My favourite regular spot is Posticino in Sea Point - they make the best pizzas in town.  

Q: Which beach would you suggest for a romantic walk / evening?

It's not quite the beach, but I love long walks along the Sea Point/Mouille Point Promenade. 

Q: Do you have a Capetonian that inspires you?

Two: the guys from Christian Tiger School, a new electronic/hip hop act. I can listen to their music for hours.

Q: What would the one mother city festival be that must not be missed?

The Flamjangled Tea Party (and further afield, AfrikaBurn) 

Sarah Duff likes Afrikaburn

Q: Favourite Winelands town?


Q: Which food represents Cape Town for you?

Cape Malay koesisters 

Q: If you become mayor of Cape Town and could change one thing, what would it be?

Could I be a magical mayor and stop the wind? [Ed's note: It's not really that bad :-)]

Q: Favourite shopping experience?

I'm not a big shopper and hate going into malls. If I need to do jewellery or clothes shopping I head to the Neighbourgoods Saturday market in Woodstock at the Old Biscuit Mill or to the many quirky shops on Kloof Street.

Q: Your little black book:

Sababa Kitchen and Deli on Breë Street for falafel nights on Thursdays - something most Capetonians don't know about.
