The southern Cape has its own weather pattern that’s totally different from anywhere else in Africa – which explains why the Cape’s flora is so unique! From around November to March, whilst it rains in the rest of southern Africa, the Cape is hot, sunny, dry, and generally perfect for a holiday. Christmas and New Year are lovely in the Cape, although as the result it gets exceedingly busy with South Africans spending their holidays here.
From about April to August it cools down and there’s some rain. During these months it can be beautiful and dry one moment, but blustery and wet the next. Rainfall peaks around June and July but the Cape’s weather is changeable. Despite this it’s still perfectly pleasant, just as long as you aren’t expecting to sunbathe all day.
By September and October, the rain becomes a less common event; the sun comes out more and the temperatures rise again. September is the start of the Cape’s ‘spring’, when vast swathes of the open fynbos bursts into flower in Namaqualand (north of Cape Town)
