Winter in Cape Town is cold and wet, but luckily that doesn’t mean you need to cut back on the adventure activities. There’s no reason to be deterred by the cold, wind, or even the rain.There are plenty of cool adventure to-do’s that are not weather-dependent.
Our epic sandboarding activities take place on the Atlantis Dunes on the West Coast, a mere 30-minute drive from the City Centre. What’s interesting is that the weather is often very different on the West Coast to what it is in the city. Either way, sandboarding doesn’t mind a spot of wind or rain, and it’s definitely not bothered by the cold.
Sandboarding is fast, sometime furious, and always a lot of fun.
