Things To Do With Kids this spring in Cape Town

Can you feel it? Spring is in the air!

What's On this Spring Cape Town

Not many people know this but we lived in Cape Town for a while and it is where Mini Me was born so it will always hold a special place in my life. We chose to stay on the West Coast where we got spectacular views of the mountain every day… no matter what the weather. However, my favourite memory though is the wildflower eruption that happens over Spring all along the West Coast. Blankets of colourful bloom erupt over the landscape and you get to see all this just by making a day road trip out of it. This is a free and magical experience everyone should see. But some people prefer something a little more “vibey”. So, on that note, we’ve put together a list of what’s on in Cape Town to get everyone through the Spring season.

One of the best parts of September is the very South African Braai Day weekend for Heritage day! What are you doing to celebrate?

Read our Things to do With Kids under R100 in CT and Family friendly beaches in Cape Town for other ideas of what to do!
