Autumn in the Western Cape

Posted by hendri on Tuesday, April 13th, 2010

It’s April, and the leaves have started to fall of the trees again, turning the green into shades of yellow, orange and brown. Towns in the Westyern Cape, and especially Stellenbosch, with all it’s old Oak trees changes dramatically and you can smell in the air that the seasons are changing.

While some prefer the Summer months and the fun a day at the beach offers, there are those who like the gloomy. Nowhere in South Africa is the winter months so dramatic as it is in the Cape Peninsula and Winelands. The constant rain does bring it’s problems but there is something inspiring about the weather condition, even if the inspiration only goes as far as a DVD and Pizza.

The Western Cape has long been praised for it’s natuarl beauty and cultural treasures. The winter months brings an alternative look to the region, that’s worthy of a thousand words. Whilst winter isn’t quite here yet, the outdoors can still be enjoyed during Autumn.

The temperate days and chilly nights, with fairly sunny days is the perfect time to explore the region, because the African sun is past it’s schorching peak. Day excrusions to the Cape of Good Hope, Winelands, Hout Bay and Kalk Bay are wonderful ideas.

It was in the momth of April almost four centuries ago that Jan van Riebeeck first set foot on what is modern day Cape Town. The month of May brings with it rain and clouds, and you should pop in for one last time before the night indoors with a pizza and DVD will become the standard procedure for your winter months.
