Set against the iconic backdrop of Table Mountain, Cape Town is a destination you will never forget. Popularly known as a leading tourist hotspot, its major drawcards are its central location and wonderful collection of top-class, exceptional attractions and establishments.
During the day, visit the Mother City’s collection of museums, such as the Slave Lodge and the District Six Museum. Interact with the locals, turtledoves, squirrels and Egyptian geese in the scenic Company’s Garden (from where you can gaze at the panoramic views of Table Mountain), or shop for authentic local products at the bustling Greenmarket Square.
One of the top highlights of Cape Town is its amazing collection of prestigious wine estates, situated in the scenic towns of the Cape Winelands, such as Paarl and Tulbagh.
Beach lovers are in for a delightful time in the Mother City. Take a scenic drive around Signal Hill via Strand Street towards the beach at Fresnaye, or use the stunning route between Signal Hill and Table Mountain to reach the popular beaches of Clifton and Camps Bay.
As the sun sets, make your way to the alluring and exciting bars, restaurants, cafés and nightclubs in the city centre, especially those in the famous Long Street.
Best Time To Visit Cape Town
Skip the crowds, get more availability and enjoy a wonderful balance of great hotel deals and pleasant weather by visiting Cape Town during the autumn season (March – May). The temperatures usually start to drop from the intense heat of the summer (December – January) and so do the influx of tourists and the cost of accommodation. During autumn, you will get the ideal conditions for hiking the various mountain and forest trails that surround the city. While the winters (June – August) bring cold and wet weather, make sure you visit during July, when the whale-watching season begins!
