The Best Accommodation Specials in the Cape Right Now Grootbos Private Nature Reserve

For a change of scenery and a break from it all, these local spots are close enough for comfort…

The Telegraph UK recently ranked Cape Town as the third Greatest City on Earth; in our opinion, it’s the greatest. In fact, the entire province is pretty spectacular, offering topographical diversity that veers from towering mountains and plunging valleys to dramatic coastlines and magnificent fynbos-dotted landscapes.

Where better to experience the Cape’s peerless majesty than from a stunning bolthole? We’ve rounded up some of our favourite places to stay –  from Winelands charmers to Garden Route jewels and wilderness escapes – whose fabulous deals mean you needn’t hop on a plane to experience a postcard-worthy holiday.

Do you know of any properties offering great deals? We and our readers would love to know about them. Email us: hello@insideguide.co.za

Please note For the safety of yourselves and others, please ensure that you are not, or have not been in contact with anyone, showing Covid-19 symptoms before visiting any of these establishments.
