Rain Activities for Cape Town Winters


Feeling fearful that winter downpours will keep you indoors? Luckily, we know all the winter hotspots to give Cape Town’s rainclouds a silver lining.

Paint Cape Town Yellow…

As your neighbourhood’s coolest taxi company, Rikkis knows exactly where to go to keep you entertained, warm and dry this winter. Naturally…it’s our job to know the city! So before you go and put your social life on hold for the season, here are a few things to do around Cape Town to coax you from hibernation.

A Winter-Warming Brew in Newlands

Mist and drizzle are a sure-fire way of putting out your social sizzle. But when you’re warm and dry indoors, what does it matter what the weather’s like outside! We reckon the Newlands Brewery is a great place to pass the time. The country’s oldest commercial brewery (standing since the early 1800s) offers a guided tour during which the secrets behind their beers are revealed.


The Newlands Brewery Tour takes place from Monday to Saturday at various times and cost R80. This fee includes a beer tasting and two complimentary drinks. And when you’ve had your full, do the responsible thing and dial up a Rikkis taxi on 0861RIKKIS.

Stay Active at an Indoor Market

Markets aren’t only designated for sunny summers! Even in winter Cape Town has a buzzing market community. And check this…some of them also take place indoors. Boom!

Take the City Bowl Market, for instance. Located in Gardens, this Saturday event is perfect for food fundis, boasting a wide range of fresh produce, warm meals, craft beer and wines! Head to Hope Street if you’re keen for some eats and a quick meet and greet.


Or travel to the Republic of Hout Bay and experience the vibrant diversity of Cape Town’s traders at the Bay Harbour Market. Once a fish factory, this marketplace is where gifts, fashion, food and live music come together every Friday, Saturday and Sunday.


So no mourning when it starts pouring! Book a Rikkis taxi and get to these indoor activities safely, warm and dry…
