Riverlodge Backpackers in Cape Town Welcomes Digital Nomads

In the current Covid-19 lockdown situation, employers have been forced to look at alternatives other than employees coming into the office. Even if you are self-employed, remote working from home has its own merits but there can be many distractions not conducive to a pleasant working environment.  

Many bloggers, vloggers, journalists, writers, critics, remote workers, stock marketers (known as ‘Digital Nomads’) have been travelling the world with their tablets and laptops to hook up to Wi-Fi in cafes, hotels etc. which can be quite expensive and most don’t cater for larger groups or teams as Covid-19 social distancing rules severely limit capacity and decent seating areas.

Trying to focus on your work in a noisy café can be really stressful and the Wi-Fi can be dodgy at best. Walking around town with your “digital office” equipment can be a safety and security issue.

Currently there are approximately 14 million of these Digital Nomads or remote workers worldwide and due to the Covid-19 pandemic that number is increasing. The flexibility of being able to work in a serene setting and having the option to experience the local culture, scenery and activities is a bonus that has major appeal.

With that in mind, the Digital Nomad visiting Cape Town can escape to a tranquil getaway spot in a safe and inspiring location away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Just a fifteen minute drive from Cape Town CBD, Riverlodge Backpackers has the perfect solution for the international and local Digital Nomad and is situated inside Oude Molen Eco-Village in Pinelands which is a gated security complex housing many other eco-friendly businesses.

Space is not a problem so groups and teams are most welcome.
