Cape Town, South Africa

Year Round

South Africa is a year-round destination, and the best time to visit depends on your priorities. Safaris are best in the winter months (May to August). The grass is lowest, so game viewing is easier, and the temperatures are mild (maximum 20-23C). There is very little winter rainfall in the north. Namaqualand, in the Western and Northern Cape Provinces, becomes a floral phenomenon in spring (mid-August to mid-October), when the desert-like terrain is transformed into a carpet of flowers, drawing thousands of visitors. The best season for the beach is summer (November to mid-March). The southern regions are summer destinations, with low summer rainfall. Temperatures reach 28-30C or higher on truly beautiful days. The warm waters of the east coast make for almost year-round swimming. South Africans tend to take their annual holidays in summer, causing tourist destinations to be overcrowded from mid-December to late January, as well as during the other school holidays.

Cape Town is the oldest and most beautiful city in South Africa and one of the top destinations in the world. Although Cape Town is better known for stunning beaches and beautiful landscapes, the regions around Cape Town offer a range of activities and attractions, like wildlife safaris in the Cedarberg Mountains, wine tasting in the glorious Winelands, expeditions to see thousand-year-old San rock art and adventure activities such as sandboarding, surfing, bungee jumping, kloofing, abseiling and much more. South Africa's most beautiful city, Cape Town, owes much to its stunning natural attractions - from the majestic Table Mountain to the huge, wide Atlantic Ocean. One of the country's biggest attractions, the V & A Waterfront is also situated in the city and is a scenic shopping and entertainment centre. In a beautiful city like Cape Town, with its temperate climate and lovely natural attractions, there is always so much to do. Many of these activities make excellent day trips, which we can organise for you.

Surfing - Cape Town is known internationally as a top surfing destination. There are various beaches all around the city with varying appeal to the surfers in the know. It is also possible to learn how to surf in one of our exciting day trips.

Mountain biking - There are many different mountain biking trails and opportunities in Cape Town. From day trips around Tokai Forest, to scenic cycle rides in the reserve at Cape Point. It is one of the best ways to see the stunning natural beauty.

Kitsurfing - One of the most fun ways to enjoy the Atlantic Ocean; if you are not a professional, take one of our kitesurging lessons where we show you the ropes.

Hiking - The Cape Town surrounds offer numerous opportunities for those interested in hikes. There are over 100 ways of hiking up Table Mountain for instance and many more in the outskirts of the city.
