Cape Town enjoys a mild Mediterranean climate, which means that it is fairly hot in summer and fairly cold in winter. No extremes in temperature are experienced which make it the perfect place for the perfect day at the best time of year. That is how Cape Town works, and that is why millions upon millions of visitors flock to the city every year. You must be prepared for “four seasons in one day” – where you will be basking in the sun on one side of the mountain while on the other, you will be cowering from cold and the wind.
The best time to visit Cape Town is during summer from December to February or the spring months from September to November. The summer months are the busiest in terms of events and entertainment, however, as Cape Town gets ready to draw in the tourists for the Christmas period.
