Cape Town in November

Climate

In November things start hotting up as summertime arrives in Cape Town. Days are generally hot with clear skies and temperatures often climb over 30°C. Rain is scarce and evenings are warm and pleasant.

At 600 million years old, Table Mountain is thought to be one of the oldest in the world. It is six times older than the Himalayas for example.

Best regions

November is a great time to visit Cape Town’s best beaches, especially those of Clifton and Camps Bay, before the peak holiday season in December.

Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens host the much-loved Summer Sunset Concerts series that sees top local musicians and international guests perform on an open-air stage.

The Wavescape Surf & Ocean festival takes place at various venues around the city. The festival focuses on ocean-conscious events with local and international movie screenings, beach cleanups, art exhibitions and informational courses.

Pros and cons

In November you get all of the great summer weather but much fewer visitors at popular tourist sites. There’s not much of a downside to visiting Cape Town this month and you might even grab some accommodation specials before the peak holiday season truly kicks in.
