Work the Way You Want.

If you plan to work while on your Sojrn, you’ll have the opportunity to do so from afar while immersing yourself in the local culture. With a complimentary high-speed WiFi hotspot, your desk can be anywhere you like, from your own apartment to the cute coffee shop around the corner. Sojrn has also partnered with a cafe to create a Sojrn Space, so you’ll always have somewhere nearby to get work done or meet up with Chaptermates whenever you like. Think of it as your friendly neighborhood hangout. 


If you prefer a more traditional work space, you’ll find that here as well—your accommodation has a co-working facility built right into it.

Your Cape Town Home.

Accommodation for the Biodiversity in Cape Town Sojrn is in a co-living space. ​The price for this chapter is $4,299 for the four weeks. Swipe to see photos.


PS: If you book accommodations with someone (shared bed), the second person gets 50% off of their Sojrn.
