Cape Town & wine country in July? Help...

Jump to last reply

My hubby and I are planning a trip to celebrate both our 50th bdays next summer. We are limited to July /Aug time frame b/c of kids schedule (they will be in camp so it will be adult only). Ideally we are thinking mid-July for 2 weeks.
I have avoided CapeTown in the past this time of year due to rainy season. I know they have experienced a severe drought (along with fires) and the weather is very unpredictable but wondering if anyone can give an opinion on going this time of year given this and any other reasons? If we do go, what wine region is most recommended?
We are thinking of spending 5 nights in Cape Town & Wine region and then heading to a safari or reversing the order depending on travel availability.
Also not sure yet where we will go on Safari. About 15 yrs ago I did a safari landing in Joburg and then going to safari's in South Africa, Botswana & Zimbabwe. Absolutely loved it in every way but would like to do something different if anyone can make a recommendation on a really good option that also has somewhat easy access from Cape Town so we're not traveling the whole time.
Thanks in advance for any advice!
