Fun things to do in Cape Town during the full moon


Whether you’re keeping the winter chill at bay or enjoying the sweltering heat of the mother city, one natural thing remains constant: the beauty of the full moon.

There’s an added attraction to the city when it sparkles in the glow of a full moon and what better way to enjoy that than by taking advantage of the full moon-themed activities around Cape Town?

Here are some of our favorites:


Spend the evening admiring the full moon as you paddle out to sea with Kayak Cape Town. This unique experience allows you to enjoy the sunset and the moon rising over the mountains of the Hottentots Hollands while snapping photos of the adorable sea creatures that inhabit this area. It is available monthly and lasts two hours.

The popular Rhebokskloof wine estate offers an exciting full moon hike every month and offers up to 50 people the chance to explore the breathtaking beauty of the Paarl Valley under a full moon. The route is guided by the Paarl Adventure Trails with the trail offering six kilometers of pure beauty and thrilling adventure. The course lasts about two hours and sells out quickly!



Located on the magical estate of Lourensford, Life Retreat Yoga & Movement is a fitness and wellness studio that provides a peaceful setting for their monthly full moon yoga class. A blanket and a mat are enough to enjoy this relaxing class!
