Cape Divine is a full-service boutique hotel management and consulting company, providing small-to-medium-size hotels with a comprehensive variety of services. Our offerings enable developers, investors, entrepreneurs, owners and managers to significantly and measurably improve their hotel business performance. Our clientele range from those with no experience in the hospitality industry who desire to create a successful guesthouse or small hotel, to institutional investors and property developers who are interested in developing new, or turning around existing and underperforming hotels. We believe in the creation of value as the ultimate driving force behind every investment decision, whether large or small. Our services range from one-off projects such as the development of business feasibility studies and the creation of a marketing plan to comprehensive hotel management services. For those who would like to have partial ownership of a luxury boutique hotel, Cape Divine also provides investment in an existing hospitality property. This allows our clients to capitalise on the massive growth of the hotel industry in the Western Cape, by taking advantage of the capital appreciation while enjoying complimentary hotel nights and/or receiving a solid return on your investment.

- Arrangements for Room/Food
Accommodation and Food: Most VACorps participants will live within an area of the city called Observatory (affectionately referred to as ‘Obz’). One of the most exciting student neighbourhoods in all of Cape Town, Obz features a surprisingly cosmopolitan vibe despite its intimate size. This can be largely contributed to the international visitors (like you) that make up a large percentage of the area’s inhabitants. Living in Observatory is a great way to experience the cultural and political vibes of the ‘New South Africa’ in a way that will introduce you the larger scale complexities of a nation still defining its post-Apartheid identity.

- Any Missing Important Information
Note: You will not need a visa prior to arrival in South Africa unless you are planning to intern for a period greater than three months. When passing through South African customs, you will be issued a 90-day tourist visa after presenting a copy of your flight itinerary to an immigration official. This proves that you intend to leave the country at the end of your visit. If you participate in a three-month internship and would like to visit neighbouring countries after your program is finished, you may apply for another three month extension at the South African Office of Home Affairs, located in downtown Cape Town, Foreshore. We advise all of our participants to secure their visa extension one month prior to the expiry of their original tourist visa.
