We’re sure many of you have heard of the term “Christmas in July”. If you haven’t, it’s a time in the middle of the year where people celebrate and indulge in things they would normally do during the festive season, such as: go on an unforgettable holiday, enjoy a thrilling experience/activity or treat themselves and their families to fancy gifts, and in Cape Town, the possibilities are endless.

However, due to the tighter Lockdown restrictions, Christmas in July will operate a little differently this year. Thankfully, we’ve got you covered with some exciting ideas, gifts and specials/offerings to get you into the spirit.

Enjoy your favourite restaurant at home

Due to the restrictions, many restaurants are taking the takeaway and delivery route. So why not order from one of your favourite restaurants and enjoy your favourite meal in the comfort of your own home, and have a “Christmas Feast” with your family.


Picnic in the sky

Have a picnic (alone or with your family) while riding in the sky in your very own private gondola. Cape Wheel’s Picnic in the Sky offering allows you to personally purchase all your goodies for the picnic. All they would do is set up a table in the gondola for you (and your family) to enjoy, while taking in the majestic views as you ride the Cape Wheel up into the sky. Find out more


Proudly Cape Town Gifts

Gift your loved ones (or yourself) with something you can only find in Cape Town. Vannie Kaap’s proudly Cape Town merchandise is something uniquely special and unforgettable – not because of the product, but the humorous yet relatable message on the product. Shop online or visit one of their stores.
