Cape Town in April

Climate

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’s. Evenings are generally mild and pleasant.

Hiking is excellent this time of the year - be sure to consult local sites for safety tips and emergency contact numbers.

Best regions

Hiking on the Table Mountain range is great 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, take place during the month of April.

Various venues across Cape Town including the V&A Waterfront, Kirstenbosch and the Cape Winelands host the last of a summer-long series of popup movie screenings called the Galileo Open Air Cinema.

Travel tips

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.
