The colours of love

Cape Town comes out to play during spring, the season of colour and love. Visit the West Coast when the spring flowers form a spectacular carpet that reaches as far as the eye can see. Explore the botanical gardens as the floral kingdom comes into bloom. See the city’s most famous sights from the saddle of a bicycle or from the top of a double-decker bus. Join the locals as they shrug off the winter chill, inhaling the fresh fragrance of the great outdoors. If you can’t make it during the week, why not book a weekend surprise to spice up the romance? We’re certain you’ll fall in love with the city too!

West Coast flower blooms


Bursting into colour to blanket entire landscapes, the West Coast National Park is renowned for its incredible wild flowers. Official flower season is from August until end-September, when the protected area of Postberg within the park is open to the public. Enjoy the bright blankets of flowers on a drive or hike through the park and experience Mother Nature at its finest. An incredibly rare opportunity, this is one Cape Town attraction that’s not to be missed.

Groote Post wine tasting


Take the hour-long drive along the spectacular West Coast to the historic 18th century Groote Post wine farm. The farm’s unique locale not only makes it part of the famous West Coast spring flower route, but also results in a cool summer wind that influences their wines. Expect a crisp Sauvignon Blanc and a rich Chardonnay. Spend the afternoon wine tasting in the cellar, then head for lunch at the vineyard’s garden restaurant, Hilda’s Kitchen.

Jazz Brunch

Sea Point

A lazy Sunday morning is given the special treatment at Harvey’s Restaurant at Winchester Mansions. Their famous Sunday brunch, with bubbles and complimentary Sunday papers, has become an iconic must-do on Sea Point’s beachfront. Enjoy top jazz sounds with Cape Town’s leading artists in this chilled and relaxed location. Enjoy the caress of a soft Atlantic breeze as you end the morning with a romantic stroll along the Sea Point Promenade.

Peninsula Tour

Long Street, CBD

City Sightseeing’s hop-on hop-off bus tour is one of the best ways to go sightseeing in Cape Town. Grab your sweetheart’s hand and find a seat on the open-top deck of this double decker bus and watch the beautiful scenery fly past. On their Blue Route Mini-Peninsula Tour, you’ll circle the back of Table Mountain and take the coastal route to 14 must-see spots including Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, the Constantia Winelands and seaside town Hout Bay. You'll then head back through the Atlantic Seaboard to the City centre.

Kirstenbosch Boomslang


The Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens now features the ‘Boomslang’ aerial walkway amongst its many must-see attractions. Boomslang means ‘tree snake’ in Afrikaans, and the walkway literally snakes through a 25-year-old indigenous arboretum. Look out for labels on the age-old trees and information boards along the walkway. Starting at ground level, the Boomslang’s highest point is 11.5m above the garden’s famous botanical vista. Calling the views from here spectacular doesn’t do them justice.

Cycle the Promenade

Sea Point

Up Cycles is the very first drop and go bicycle service to hit Cape Town. Grab your Dutch-style ride from their location at the Sea Point Pavillion and cycle along the coastal stretch to Mouille Point. Still want more? You can head further along the route to the V&A Waterfront or the city centre, where there are two Up Cycle drop-off points. With sea air in your hair and the bustle and sights of Cape Town whizzing by, this is a great way to actively experience the city.
