Best Cape Town Summer Memories Videos

A flashback to 2012’s season of bikinis, trance parties and outdoor activities in the Mother City!

Summer in Cape Town is nothing short of amazing: pristine beaches, multi-coloured sunsets and marvels of nature at almost every turn. Not to mention, aside from the city’s natural wonders, the Mother City is home to some of the craziest, wildest, most amazing happenings!

In honour of the months of warm skin and all-night outdoor parties, here at, we’ve painstakingly scoured YouTube to put together a collection of videos that will not only have you reminiscing about that fat jol or super epic experience, but also prepare you for the peak season still to come.

And if you’re reading this during winter, cold, icy tentacles poking through your clothes, here’s an overview of 11 reasons to push through and make your way to Cape Town for all its summer glory. More bluntly, take a break from agonising about how cold your toes are and rather take a loving look back at some epic summer moments in the Mother City.

Now, prepare yourself for a flashback into the summer of 2012, and don’t forget, share this page via your social media channels with those less fortunate souls across the world to keep them clued up on our unbelievable seaside metropolis.
