Christmas in Winter

It’s Winter in the Western Cape and Tulbagh is celebrating Christmas early by welcoming one and all to visit their town for a host of wonderful winter warmers this Saturday and Sunday (27-28 June 2009).

Father Christmas will be there and you may even be able to take a trip with him down Church Street to hand out edible delights to the young children. The town will be decorated with Christmas lights and trees with all the trimmings while local restaurants will be serving up traditional Christmas dinners. Continued

REASONS TO EMBRACE WINTER

  1. Whale Watching
    Whale Season starts mid-June (and continues till November) and offers locals and foreigners alike an opportunity to marvel at the size of the Southern Right Whales. Consider the 5-day Whale Trail in the De Hoop Nature Reserve or for a day trip drive up the Cape Whale Coast.
  2. Namaqualand Flower Route
    Spring wild flowers start blooming from July to October. This spectacle can be enjoyed along the west coast of South Africa (in the Northern Cape and north of Cape Town).
  3. The Sardine Run
    The Sardine Run takes place between May and July each year, along the coast of northern Eastern Cape and southern KwaZulu Natal. Millions of sardines and all of the predators they attract (sharks, birds, game fish, etc). Surface watching, snorkeling and scuba diving.
  4. Numerous Winter Events and Festivals
  5. Discounted accommodation – weekend breaks for less! Continued
