As it was the case for thousands of people from around the world last year, thanks to the FIFA World Cup, I discovered the South African city of Cape Town for the first time. Having landed there weeks after the sounds of the iconic vuvuzelas had quieted down, I was thankfully able to experience the city in a more relaxed setting.
Known as the Mother City of South Africa, Cape Town is certainly one of the most beautiful cities in the world. A cosmopolitan place surrounding a wild mountain and flanked by stunning beaches, Cape Town is a top tourist destination.
When planning a trip to South Africa, be mindful of the seasons. June and July are not beach weather months. It’s actually winter time so the weather can be cold, rainy and windy. By contrast, January to March is the height of summer.
