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.

Rainfall is moderate throughout the year.

When is the best time to fly to Cape Town?

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.
