Stay Location


Best time to go to Cape Winelands

The best time to visit the serene Cape Winelands is just before and just after winter (March to May and September to November). This is before and after the rainy season, meaning the weather will be pleasant and warm, but not scorching, and days will feel like they go on and on with late picturesque sunsets. Surroundings will be stunningly green and pair beautifully with a glass of wine in hand.
