Climate, History and Places of Interest
The Cape is an area which experiences a Mediterranean climate – warm summers and cool winters. The rainy season is during the winter months but often one is fortunate to enjoy clear skies and warm days during the winter season. Simon’s Town itself is an historic town which grew up as a result of the naval base which was originally established here. A visit to the Victoria and Albert Waterfront in Cape Town is a must, as well as a trip up Table Mountain in the cable car. A visit to the world renowned Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens should also be on all visitors’ lists to Cape Town. The Cape Point Nature reserve is a very popular destination for visitors to Cape Town. Once at Cape Point, one can take the funicular up to the lighthouse and enjoy the glorious view of both the Atlantic and Indian Oceans. Further afield, one can enjoy a day out in the wine lands, sampling the excellent Cape Wines in the Stellenbosch, Swellendam, Paarl or Franschoek areas.
