Cape Town has been voted one of the most beautiful, biodiverse, creative, and affordable places on Earth, with good reason. Experience the incredible restaurants, bars, wine farms, galleries, hikes & wildlife, as well as cultural & adventure activities with your fellow iXers.

"Surfing was the best excursion. The culture here is really fun and a good summer program where I was able to accomplish stuff but also enjoy myself. The internship was a really good way for me to gain experience in the professional field. If someone is looking for a good way to get started interning and gaining experience, I would suggest iX."
