Cape Town
tips & insights

Other attractions

They include:

Wine country

Tour the nearby Stellenbosch and Franschhoek wine-growing districts. The first produces the country's best wines, the second has some of its best restaurants.

Camps Bay

Its beach and ocean-view restaurants are favored by the rich and trendy.


When to go

There is no one perfect season. You face trade offs


It's generally warm and dry from mid-November to mid-March. However, you will likely encounter crowds and scarce bookings.


Cape Town is seldom overrun with visitors, but you risk wet and cold weather from mid-June to mid-September.

Shoulder seasons

These periods are unpredictable weather wise, but your odds of having beautiful sunny days are much higher than in the winter period. And, except during a school holiday, you won't face a summer-tourist crunch.
