The mother city is a popular summer holiday destination well here are 5 Reasons to Travel Cape Town This Winter that will get you out and about.
The mother city is a popular holiday destination for South Africans and foreign nationals alike.
Every summer, Cape Town experiences an influx of tourists chasing the sun, the beach and local culture. Popular social spots are abuzz with accents from around the world.
There is no shortage of activities, some dependent on the weather. As a local, I have the luxury of experiencing the change of seasons, each with its own unique beauty. I find that people get a little discouraged by the winter chills and occasional showers, often hearing them complain of the scarcity of fun things to do in the colder seasons and opting to stay in. Well I get excited when winter hits Cape Town. I love the intimacy of the city, rainy days and warm knits, but above all that I look most forward to a winter getaway. Here are 5 reasons why you should travel Cape Town this winter;
- Cheap Thrills
Nothing like a good winter deal/discount making that weekend away vacation affordable.
It is much easier to squeeze in a last minute booking at restaurants and hotels that would otherwise be booked out.
3. Light my fire
Opt for a lodge fitted with a fireplace where you can spend your evenings soaking up warmth and maybe enjoying a glass of red…there is something about these two ‘WW’ wine and winter.
4. Something for the crew
Yes, yachting, beach clubs and outdoor parties are heaps of fun but grab your friends for a road trip outside the city to enjoy the city’s winter greens and icy blues.
5. Just the two of us
Cape Town in winter is lovers’ paradise with an abundance of affordable couples’ vacation packages.
