When is the best time to visit Cape Town?

Featured Destination of the Month: Cape Town

Cape Town is best visited during the months of October to March where the weather is sunny and warm. 

The warm weather creates a great vibe around the city and there are lots of activities to do during both the day and night.

What should travellers do in Cape Town?

  • Visit Table Mountain – It’s the seventh natural wonder of the world and provides travellers with amazing views of Cape Town
  • Explore Robben Island – This is a special cultural experience where you learn about South Africa’s apartheid era as well as the iconic humanitarian Nelson Mandela’s imprisonment on the island.
  • Go on a Cape Winelands tour – Cape Town is home to the world class wine estates, with many offering wine tastings and tours around the vineyards.

Which restaurants should travellers visit in Cape Town?

There are so many! Some of the restaurants that we usually recommend include:

La Mouette

La Mouette is a fine dining restaurant with a fabulous food and wine pairings. Very romantic and within walking distance from our hotel.

Tuna tartare, bbq calamari, brown butter crumbs, semi dried grapes and ajo blanco

The Butcher Shop and Grill

One of the best steak houses in Cape Town.

Codfather

Codfather is a seafood and sushi restaurant situated in Camps Bay. It’s feel is casual and vibey, offering seafood with no menu. It’s something different and the food is outstanding.
