10 things that are better during winter in Cape Town

If summer in Cape Town is for swimming, sundowners, and soaking up the sun, then winter is for red wine, crackling fireplaces, and roasted marshmallows. You probably prefer one or the other, but we’re here to make a case for why Cape Town is better between the months of May and August.

No Crowds at Iconic Attractions
Cape Town is renowned for its prominent attractions like the Table Mountain Aerial Cableway, V&A Waterfront, Cape Point and Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens to name but a few.
