I’m so looking forward to my trip that way in March… It’s one beautiful holiday city!
Cape Town is a port city on South Africa’s southwest coast, on a peninsula beneath the imposing Table Mountain. Cape Town enjoys a temperate climate with warm, dry conditions from October to April. Temperatures peak between December and February, which is the most popular time for a Cape Town beach holiday. Expect busy beaches, a vibrant nightlife and gloriously sunny festive cheer. Cape Town’s fierce South-Easter wind blows hard during this time, occasionally clearing the beaches and blanketing Table Mountain in cloud.
Trust me, if you’re going to travel anywhere this quarter, it should be to Cape Town. The best time for a Cape Town beach holiday is from late January to late April, the tail end of the city’s dry summer months.
Here are some fun facts you should know and then you’d understand why I’m encouraging you to visit Capetown this quarter..
When we talk about Locations, Capetown has it all: beaches, mountains, harbors and gardens.
Beneath the mountains are some of the most picturesque beach communities you’ll ever see. From Clifton to Camps Bay there’s really not an inch of sand that you wouldn’t want to sprawl out on.
TABLE MOUNTAIN CABLE CAR
If hiking isn’t your thing, you can have the view without climbing. Take a cable car all the way to the top of Table Mountain. Once you’re at the top you can enjoy a delicious lunch at the cafe, sip on a glass of local wine and take in the seemingly endless views.
BEACH FRONT BARS
Once its sundown, there are numerous beach bars that’ll avail you the opportunity to witness the awe inspiring sunsets, you’d ask yourself where you’ve been all your life.
BEACH FILLED WITH PENGUINS
A lot of people would naturally get excited about seeing big games on a South African Safari – the elephants, lions and the likes but penguins? In Africa? The little African penguins that call Cape Town’s Boulders Beach home are one of the city’s most squeal-inducing attractions.
GIGANTIC SEASIDE POOLS
If you travel with a partner who isn’t keen on beaches, never mind, Capetown has a gigantic public seaside pool and many other fancy pools.The Sea Point Swimming Pool is arguably one of the most scenic places to swim laps in the world. As an added bonus, it’s open all year round, so no matter when you visit it will be there waiting for you!
SAFETY AT NIGHT
The nightlife in Cape Town is unmatched. It’s safe, the drinks are cheap, the bars are fun and the music scene is taking off.
Bo-Kaap is a historical and colorful suburb situated in the foot of signal hill in Cape Town. The residential area is known for its brightly colored houses that showcase both Georgian and Dutch architectural styles and narrow cobblestone streets. In 1760, slaves were given the privilege to lease a number of houses in this area, which the slaves in turn, painted in bright colors to express their freedom and happiness. Bo-Kaap is one of the most vibrantly-colored neighborhoods you’ll ever stroll through.
Cape Town will leave you hungry for more of South Africa. Like any good appetizer, Cape Town will satisfy as it simultaneously whets your appetite. Mzoli’s is a wildly popular braai restaurant in Cape Town. I recommend you visit it, you probably wouldn’t want Suya anymore in your life.
