Cape Town Mania – Here Comes Spring!

As we approach the autumnal month of September, it will soon be time for the northern hemisphere to bid farewell to summer, and allow those countries sitting beneath the equator to move into the glorious months of spring.

Countries such as Argentina, South Africa, Brazil, and Ecuador will all begin to stir from their mild winters, and if you haven’t had the summer for you were hoping for this year, then why not head on down to Cape Town and catch those first rays of spring!

The Atlantic Seaboard bursts into life with pavement cafes, the V&A Waterfront livens up with a selection of open-air festivals, and the Winelands of Stellenbosch, Paarl and Wellington provide a perfect backdrop for a wine tasting tour.

Without the hoards of summer tourists, Cape Town remains peaceful and easy to navigate during the months of September and October, and if you want to visit the “must see” attractions of Table Mountain, Robben Island, and the Cape of Good Hope, without sharing it with millions of others, spring is one of the best times to go.

The weather in Cape Town is famous for being unpredictable, and you will be told on more than one occasion to “dress for all four seasons”.   You could start the day with clouds, experience afternoon showers, and have brilliant sunshine by ‘Sundowner’ time, but the temperature rarely drops below 20 degrees Celsius, so a light jacket and a brolly are all you need.

As one of the world’s fastest growing holiday destination, Cape Town offers a fantastic selection of hotels and accommodations to suit all budgets, numerous fine dining venues, bustling seafront bars, and all the shopping one could possibly wish for, and with direct flights from all major European airports, getting there is easier than you think.

A wonderful place to relax and unwind, Cape Town has it all, so why not head on down to the ‘Mother City’ this spring, and see it for yourself!
