The month of April sees autumn arrive in Cape Town, and the heat and wind of the peak summer months disappear. Days are generally fair with clear skies and the average temperature in the low to mid 20°C/68°F. Evenings are generally mild and pleasant.
- Hiking on the Table Mountain range is excellent this time of year since daytime temperatures are cooler and it’s not as windy.
- The last of the open-air Kirstenbosch Summer Concerts, featuring top local and international musical artists, occur during April.
- Various venues across Cape Town, including the V&A Waterfront, Kirstenbosch, and the Cape Winelands, host the last of summer-long pop-up movie screenings called the Galileo Open Air Cinema.
Accommodation prices are lower at this time of the year, the weather is cooler but not yet rainy, and Cape Town sees fewer tourists. Try to avoid Easter Weekend towards the end of the month when Cape Town is a popular destination for locals.
