Climate

Spring officially arrives in Cape Town on the 1st of September, and you can expect mild days with average temperatures in the low to mid 20°C/68°F. Rainy days are fewer, but evenings can still get chilly.

Best Regions
  • Springtime brings a stunning burst of flowers that turn the landscape into a sweeping kaleidoscope of color. The best regions for the flower season are on the northwestern coastline, but good floral displays can also be enjoyed along the West Coast an hour outside Cape Town.
  • The Cape Winelands celebrate spring mid-month with the two-day Franschhoek Uncorked Festival. At the same time, venues all over Cape Town’s metropole play host to performance arts during the Cape Town Fringe Festival.
  • September is peak whale watching season. The quaint town of Hermanus, the country’s top whale-watching destination, hosts the popular annual Whale Festival at the end of the month.
Pros and Cons

September is a great time to visit Cape Town, but the weather might not let you fully enjoy the beaches just yet. Local schools have a week-long break at the end of the month, bringing more visitors to the city’s tourist attractions.
