Cape Town Winter Specials

Inspired by the onset of autumn, this page is for all the fabulous winter specials in Cape Town: the ones that make the long, expensive tourist-ridden summer almost bearable for us locals… I won’t be posting every single special there is – only the ones I feel give particularly good value for the experience.

2012:  Winter is upon us… if you have a winter special you’d like to share, please do drop us a line!
