Right through the festive season of Christmas and New Year and all the way to Easter, the weather is picture perfect (with an occasional summer shower). From beaches to game parks, vineyard visits and marine adventures, book 6-8 months in advance to avoid disappointment.
Temperatures start to dip and tourist crowds are marginally less; an exceptional time for safaris and game viewing. September November (springtime) sees a profusion of wildflowers; game animals are out in force for birthing season, and whale watching is at an all-time high.

Safaris are still on as game congregate around diminishing waterholes. The cable car to Table Mountain shuts in early August for maintenance, but the arrival of spring is still a beautiful time to visit.
