South Africa in Spring Offer – 10 nights for 8!

This is the third in our Offers series where we scour the country to identify and negotiate the best deals we can. As the title suggests, you stay 10 nights but you only pay for 8.

As with our first tour, Winter Wonderland Offer, this is based on a winter/spring special offer until September.

This relaxing self-drive tour doesn’t involve any internal flights and is a series of pretty easy drives from place to place. You start in Cape Town for 3 nights exploring this unique half city, half mountain wonderland. You are staying out in the Constantia Winelands so you get the best of both worlds. Then you head to the magnificent Whale Coast for 2 nights. Next you head inland to the beautiful Karoo area for a complete contrast where you enjoy a safari to the superb Sanbona Game Reserve. Finally you continue to the scenic Garden Route for 3 nights sight-seeing and relaxing.

The Whale Coast is known for its whale-watching especially from July to October. Whilst Sanbona is awash with wild flowers and flowering renosterveld from August onwards.

Recap on Why Visit South Africa in Winter or Spring

South Africa in winter is a wonderful time. The days are cooler and yes, there’s a chance of rain. But it is also the time when you can be active all day without dying of heat exhaustion. Or dissolving into a pile of oil from overdosing on the sunblock. In Cape Town, you won’t be jostling the crowds in the Waterfront or trying to avoid the endless selfie-snappers on Table Mountain.

And the temperatures aren’t that bad. In winter the days are a pleasant 17 to 22C. Whilst at night you can enjoy a good bottle of red wine around an open fire-place. The temperatures start to creep up by late August and September. Not lying on the beach sort of temperatures. But wonderful for sight-seeing.
