Cape Town Carnival 2018

The year’s biggest street party

Cape Town Carnival Parade

The streets of Cape Town come alive on Saturday 17 March 2018 when the Cape Town Carnival brings its special magic to the Mother City. The theme is “Mother City, Mother Nature” and promises massive floats ranging from a depiction of Mother Nature with the seed of life in her hands, through the spectacular indigenous flowers of the region to the “tree of life” that connects us all. Enjoy an afternoon of colour and creativity on Green Point’s famous Fan Walk and round the day off with an open air after party.

We’ve put together some great accommodation offers to make it easy to enjoy the atmosphere for the whole weekend. And with our hotels being perfectly located in the heart of the action, your carnival experience is sure to be a memorable one!

Choose from two rate options to suit your budget:

  • Cape Town Carnival Experience From R1,995 per room per night
    • Includes breakfast daily, complimentary Carnival pack including hats, feathers and masks. Minimum two-night stay required
  • VIP Carnival Package From R2,370 per room per night
    • Includes complimentary access to Tsogo Sun’s VIP hospitality zone on the Fan Walk, breakfast daily, Carnival pack including hats, feathers and masks. Minimum two-night stay required

As an added bonus, 2 kids under 18 stay and eat breakfast free when sharing a family room with 2 adults.

Welcome to Cape Town. As you know we are currently experiencing a drought. However, Tsogo Sun has made arrangements to have water available for our guests through alternative water augmentation such as boreholes and by installing a desalination plant. This will enable us to take some of our largest properties off the water grid and support the City of Cape Town. When visiting the Mother City, please be water wise and we encourage you to think like a local. Enjoy your stay with us. For more information, please click here.

Tsogo Sun is proud to be the official hotel partner to the Cape Town Carnival.
