When to Visit Cape Town
The best time to visit Cape Town, South Africa is during the summer, from December through
March. This is peak tourist season in Cape Town, and at this time of year it is warm and dry. It is
hottest around February and March, as a strong and hot wind comes in from the mountains. In
early Spring, around January, a wind called the “Cape Doctor” arrives from the southeast and
blows air pollution away, bringing fresh, clean and enjoyable air to the region, and a great wind
to cool travellers off on hot days! For those wanting to save money, consider a vacation in Cape
Town during off-peak tourist season, in winter time from May through September. It is colder
and can get rainy, so be sure to pack along or budget for colder weather gear.
