TRAVEL PLANNING

YOU HAVE THE BUDGET AND DECIDED YOUR NEXT HOLIDAY DESTINATION IS THE WESTERN CAPE PROVINCE, WHAT NOW?

To get you started, if you are an international traveller, I will first consider your point of entry or departure. The two major international airports in South Africa are OR Tambo International in Johannesburg and Cape Town International in Cape Town. For local travellers, I consider if you are driving, using a bus or flying in, and your location.

WHEN TO VISIT CAPE TOWN?

Cape Town’s weather is unpredictable and this is the reason why travellers always want to know the best time to visit the Mother City. Believe it or not, Cape Town is an all-year-round destination because there are always activities happening during each season. Read below to have a full understanding of what I mean.

1. SUMMER IN CAPE TOWN (NOVEMBER – FEBRUARY)

Cape Town is a summer paradise, with balmy temperatures and sunny days. Cape Town gets almost all it’s rainfall in winter, so expect warm and cloudless days. It can also get windy at this time of year, and kite-surfing is a popular summertime activity.

Temperatures: 17°C – 29°C
Rainfall: Average of 3 days per month
Hours of daylight: 13-14

2. AUTUMN IN CAPE TOWN (MARCH – APRIL)

Autumn (fall) can bring a slight chill, but nothing a light jacket can’t take care of. The wind usually drops compared to summer, but the rain doesn’t start in earnest until winter. It’s a great time of year – not too hot, not too windy, and not too wet. Expect mild days, pretty sunsets, and long walks on the beach.

Temperatures: 15°C – 27°C
Rainfall: 2 – 4 days per month
Hours of daylight: 11 – 13

3. WINTER IN CAPE TOWN (MAY – AUGUST)

Cape Town’s winter is mild compared to other provinces. It’s the rainy season, which means that the lush natural surroundings are in their prime. There are green forests, trickling streams, and waterfalls. It’s also a great time of year for fine dining, as many of the top restaurants have excellent winter specials to lure you out of the house. July and August are also peak whale season when southern right and humpback whales can be seen calving in the shallow waters just offshore.

Temperatures: 11°C – 22°C
Rainfall: 9 – 10 days per month
Hours of daylight: 10

4. SPRING IN CAPE TOWN (SEPTEMBER – OCTOBER)

Springtime in Cape Town sends the wildflowers into bloom, brushing the landscape with colour. The rainy days are fewer, and while it can still be a little chilly, the average temperatures start to rise. Some of the best days happen in spring – windless, cloudless, and mild.

Temperatures: 17°C – 29°C
Rainfall: 5 – 8 days per month
Hours of daylight: 12 – 13
