As a city, and as a holiday destination, Cape Town has it all. Jaw dropping scenery; the iconic Table Mountain; a beautiful coastline with pristine white beaches; delicious food and wine and all the excitement of a lively city, with a vibrant art scene, lively bars and great shops.
It’s also ideally placed to explore the surrounding areas of the Winelands, with their award-winning vineyards or perhaps even travel on to the Garden Route.
Easily accessible, with direct flights from London, as well as a wide range of connecting flights with major carriers. Flight time is 11 ½ hours and South Africa is between one and two hours ahead of the UK depending on the time of year.
Cape Town has year-round appeal with different highlights depending on when you visit. Mid-December to early January (summer) is peak season, with February and March still being hot, and April offering lovely temperatures. May, June and July tends to alternate between sunshine and showers, but the winter-flowering lilies, proteas and aloes are fabulous. July - November is fantastic for whale watching, whilst October and November see temperatures start to warm up again, with sunny days, quiet beaches and spectacular flora in the Cape.
Cape Town is all about enjoying some of the finer things in life - with a rich combination of natural beauty, cultural highlights and exciting activities. If you can drag yourself away from your villa, here are some suggestions.
