Take a look at why Cape Town is the ultimate Mother's Day getaway, and why you should be spoiling your mom in the Mother City. 

Scenic beauty 

Cape Town is known for its breath-taking natural beauty, from majestic Table Mountain to the picturesque beaches of the Atlantic Seaboard and False Bay, and vibrant floral displays in Kirstenbosch Gardens. A hike up Table Mountain or a leisurely stroll along the famous Camps Bay beach promenade is the perfect way to enjoy the stunning views and soak up the sunshine. We recommend a leisurely drive from Simonstown up Smitswinkel to Cape Point.

Wine tasting 

Cape Town is a hub of wine country, with some of the world's most famous wine routes located just a short drive from the city centre. A day trip to nearby Stellenbosch, Franschhoek, or Constantia wine regions is a must-do activity for any wine-loving mother. We recommend jumping on the Red Bus tour around Cape Town and enjoying stops at all the top Constantia wine farms or heading out for a day on the Franschhoek Wine Tram.
