Cape Town Seasons:
The Mild and Marvelous Months of Autumn in Cape Town (March to May):

Wines, Whales and Wander in Winter in Cape Town (June to August): 

Winter holds a special allure in Cape Town. Explore beyond the inner city and broaden your education- the deeper you go, the more you will find.

During the mild winter months, the city and nearby town of Hermanus become a prime destination for whale watching. The southern right whales migrate to the waters near Cape Town, offering an awe-inspiring opportunity to witness these majestic creatures up close. The coastal scenery is dramatic and striking, making it a great time for photographers and nature enthusiasts. Imagine capturing both a Whale and Penguins in one day!

Whilst the stunning countryside scenery of our Wine Regions is jaw-dropping at any time of the year, winter is the perfect time to cozy up around a roaring fire and enjoy some of our award-winning red wines, after a morning of cultural learnings.
