Cape Town has earned a place on the “Most Instagrammable” list for the fourth consecutive year, and we can’t help but cheer for the Mother City!


Cape Town, South Africa (25 January 2022) – There is no denying the international world adores Cape Town. It is one of the most celebrated cities in South Africa and often makes headlines for earning travel-related accolades. Once again, it has earned a spot on the Big 7 Travel “Most Instagrammable” list.

The list was started in 2019 by the travel media company and has become something to look forward to each year. Millions of travellers worldwide do research to find their next holiday destination, and lists like the “Most Instagrammable” are just the type of thing that will entice travellers to visit South Africa.

Travel is at the heart of many people, with the world getting back to normal again, or new normal. Being restricted, forced to stay apart from family, and delaying travel plans for over two years, the prospect of travel in 2022 is exhilarating!

Cape Town has been selected for the Big 7 Travel Most Instagrammable list for the fourth year in a row. Selection for this list is made by using several judging methods.

“How did Big 7 Travel choose the winners? Via a comprehensive scoring system that analysed the number of hashtags per destination, sample survey results of Big 7 Media’s 1.5 million audience, and from our global editorial team.

The final results are ranked in order of their visual allure and popularity on social media.” – Big 7 Travel

In 2019, Cape Town landed 5th on the list, 2020 earned 15th place, and in 2021, Cape Town got 45th place.

This year, the Mother City has earned the 22nd spot on the list. In the past, Cape Town has ranked much higher on the list. With everything that has happened, we know that as soon as travellers start exploring Cape Town and South Africa as a whole, that ranking will definitely be restored to a higher spot.

“Dramatic scenery, fantastic hiking trails and deserted beaches that boast spectacular ocean views. What more could you ask for? Cape Town is an Instagrammer’s dream location to visit: endless natural beauty and clifftop views, pastel pink neighbourhoods and turquoise waters.” – Big 7 Travel

We are so proud of Cape Town! Where is your favourite place to visit?
