    Why Cape Town should be your next Getaway this winter

    When winter begins knocking, most of us do our best to ignore the lure of outdoor activities and instead hibernate at home with a blanket and a few new series. Fortunately for us, one of the best parts of being South African is that wandering during winter can be a breathtaking experience, especially if you plan on visiting Cape Town.

    Last March, the renowned British newspaper, The Telegraph, called South Africa’s legislative capital the third-best city in the world, ranking it above New York, Paris, Rome, London, Los Angeles, Madrid and so many more. When you think about it, it is not hard to see why. The Mother City boasts a phenomenal food culture, sumptuous scenery, wildlife, vineyards, and some of the best hotels South Africa has to offer. When you combine that with less crowding and more accessible pricing, taking a quick trip to Cape Town may be just what you need to help you recharge this winter. If you need more convincing here are another four reasons why you need to head down to Cape Town this winter.

    The Hotels:

    One of the biggest advantages of visiting Cape Town in winter is that you get a break from the hot weather and crowds of sunburnt tourists. Without the throngs of tourists, you pay less for your accommodation and have a better chance of snagging a spot at one of the city’s gorgeous hotels, and at a fraction of the cost. Cape Town as a destination is cheaper with specials from accommodation, restaurants, and activities.

    Check out why The Capital 15 On Orange and The Capital Mirage are the hottest spots to stay this winter, giving you bang for buck.

    What’s more, guests get a taste of what life without load shedding is, as both properties have full back up power, ensuring your stay is stress free, allowing you to carry on with your day without interruptions.

    There is something for everyone:

    Whether you’re going for a staycation, escaping for a baecation, or celebrating a friend’s birthday with a weekend turn up, Cape Town has it all. As the headquarters of South Africa’s food culture, The Mother City is ground zero for anyone wanting to slip from restaurant to restaurant on a gastronomic adventure. Una Mas Mezcaleria in Sea Point is rumoured to serve some of the best tuna ceviche and mezcal in the country while Awara is known for being the best place to visit if you want to try modern Indian cuisine.

    If you are looking for something a little sultrier, The Grotto Spa at the foot of Table Mountain is a tranquil space where gown-clad guests can indulge in a little hydrotherapy, discover the beauty of a foot ritual or enjoy a blissful full body deep Earth massage with warm lava stones. What’s more, whether you have an early arrival or late departure from Cape Town and need a place to relax, have down time, enjoy a meal, or even sleep, The Grotto Spa is the place for you. Enjoy the ultimate lounge experience in the city bowl before continuing your journey.

Whatever you decide, Cape Town is perfect for winter staycations, romantic getaways, friends-cations and just about anything else you can think of. Thanks to the cheap flights and great accommodation deals, it is also the kind of holiday that won’t bust your budget. Getting all that value and visiting the 3rd best city in the world, is why South Africa remains, alive with possibility.
