WHEN IS THE BEST TIME OF YEAR TO GO?

The Cape region has a Mediterranean climate similar to the south of France, with warm summers, from October through to April. Possibly the best time to visit Cape Town is late summer when it is cooler, but quite dry and less windy. Winters, from May through September are cool and experience very changeable weather, sometimes all four seasons in a day!

DRY SEASON

By November the rains will have stopped and hot sunny weather can be expected. The main South African Holiday season is in December and January and it is advisable to book well in advance.

The summer in Cape Town can experience strong winds known locally as the \”Cape Doctor\” these normally die down by March and the late summer can have very pleasant conditions.

green SEASON

May becomes noticeably cooler with more regular rain as the onset of winter approaches.

June and July are mid winter in Cape Town and the weather is very changeable, expect some cold wet weather at this time although some lovely sunny days are also possible.

SHOULDER SEASON

Expect to see some rain fall around Cape Town in April but temperatures are now comfortable.

With spring arriving in August the weather begins to warm again and the spectacular wildflowers flourish with the regular rain which continues through to September and lessens in October. Whale watching season is in full swing.
