So winter is slowly on its way and we can definitely feel it. So, what is there to do in Cape Town during the winter months? Don’t worry we’ve got you covered! Here are a few activities to keep you busy and warm (hopefully) on those wintery days.

Whale watching
The winter months are peak calving season for whales in the bay. You are guaranteed to spot these magnificent mammals either up close in a boat or from the coastline.

Iconic attractions
Cape Town is known for its prominent attractions such as Table Mountain, Cape Point, Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens to name a few. The winter months are regarded as low season, which means there will be fewer tourists around with no long queues! You could also be lucky to receive off-season special deals for hotels and restaurants.

Outdoor activities
For those brave enough to face the colder weather, Cape Town has many hiking, running and mountain bike trails.

Choose from Cape Town’s wide variety of restaurants and cafes to enjoy a comforting eating experience. Cape Town is known for its bustling indoor markets in and around the city that are a must!

Spa time
Spend your time this winter relaxing and rejuvenating at one of our world class spas.

Flower season
Witness the natural spectacle of millions of wildflowers starting to bloom in the middle of the West Coast National Park. Just an hours drive from the city, you will be amazed at the colour carpet of white, orange and yellow flowers.

Catch a show at one of the many theatres in the city.

Spend the day at the Two Oceans Aquarium to learn about and witness some of our most beautiful sea creatures.

We hope this guide was helpful and will keep you busy this winter. If all else fails, stay in and watch a movie while snuggled on the couch with your fluffy blanket!
