April is a month with several holidays, as there are three public holidays coming soon. Easter is not only celebrated by the Christians in Cape Town, but also the community opens its heart with a variety of community drives. Easter holidays include 10 April which is Good Friday and 13 April which is Easter Monday - in South Africa called 'Family Day'. Then Friday, 27 April, is another public holiday 'Freedom Day'.

Enjoy the long weekends and take long walks on the stunning beaches in Cape Town in April. Cape Town weather can change quite fast during autumn in South Africa. In April you can experience four seasons in one day, as the Capetonians say.
