Below is a listing of the best Cape Town events in July 2018 when staying at The Cape Bali:
Are you looking for exciting events in July and things to do and see in Cape Town this winter? The South African winter school holidays are upon us, and there are many fantastic music shows and dance and arts festivals taking place in July in the Mother City.
Then there are also all those great South African festivals a bit further out of town but still so worth the travels, such as for visiting the splendid Oyster Festival in Knysna or Franschhoek’s Bastille Day Celebrations. And if you ever wondered if there is snow in Cape Town, we can tell you that there may be no snow in the city, due to its seaside location, it can still feel quite chilly and you can see snow on the higher grounds near Cape Town especially around Ceres and the Overberg Region. So if you long for your kids to be able to touch some real snow, take them out to Matroosberg and let them enjoy the white wonder. Or take them to the ice rink at Grand West or the tiny one which is currently set up at the V&A Waterfront.
