The ubiquitous fog hovering over Table Mountain, waves crashing against surfboards and carpets of rolling wineries: these are quintessential images of Cape Town. Blessed with one of the most distinct and varied landscapes in Africa and pleasant weather year-round Cape Town offers an exciting experience to lovers of the great outdoors and anyone looking for a cosmopolitan yet relaxed city to visit.

The city’s infectious energy summons even the most jet-lagged traveller to head out into the outdoors, and as Capetonians do – either hit the water to ride some waves or hike up Table Mountain. History buffs booking flights to Cape Town should reserve a tour of the infamous Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for two decades.

Exploring Cape Town’s diverse neighbourhoods is a great way to get to know the city. Wander the cobbled streets of Bo-Kaap – the historic home of the Muslims whose ancestors were brought as slaves over from Indonesia, India and Turkey. From there the glitzy beach towns of Camps Bay and Clifton are within reach.

Cape Town climate

On a peninsula between the Indian and Atlantic Oceans, Cape Town has mild winters and warm summers. Winter temperatures range from seven to 12 degrees (C) between June and August.

Summer can be very warm from December to March with temperatures reaching the 40s, but the Cape Doctor keeps it bearable. March to April and early May have the best weather and gentle winds. Rainfall is moderate throughout the year.

Peak Season:

With its mild climate, Cape Town is popular year-round so cheap flights to Cape Town can be found with advance planning. The peak travel season is from November through January. The area is particularly crowded during school holidays, especially the South African summer vacation period from December 1 through January 15, so plan Cape Town flights and accommodations ahead of time. Easter is another popular vacation time, as are July and August.

 

Off Season:

February through March and October are excellent times to visit because the weather is nice but the city has fewer crowds. This is also a good time to find cheap flights to Cape Town and discounted hotels because tourism is low and the city is looking for visitors. If you will be visiting for at least a week or so, winter generally has glorious days mixed in with the gloomy cold ones, and winter is when you can find the best deals.

Getting around Cape Town

The best way to get downtown after your Cape Town flight is by hopping aboard a taxi or bus at the airport. In the city’s centre, the cheapest option to get around is Cape Town’s public bus system. Save some money by buying your tickets ahead of time and in bulk – books of ten tickets are sold. But be careful if you’re on a tight schedule. Posted drop-off and pick-up times are just estimates, and you don’t want to get stranded. If you’d rather take a taxi, you’ll be spending more money, but saving time. If you feel like doing the research, the tourism centre offers shuttle buses to popular tourist attractions such as the Table Mountain Cableway.
