South Africa-Cape Town

The climate in South Africa ranges from desert and semi-desert in the north west of the country to sub-tropical on the eastern coastline. The rainy season for most of the country is in the summer, except in the Western Cape where the rains come in the winter. Rainfall in the Eastern Cape is distributed evenly throughout the year. Winter temperatures hover around zero, summers can be very hot, in excess of 35° Celsius (95°F) in some places.

The South African Weather Service provides up-to-date weather information, forecasts and satellite imaging. SAWS has also implemented a network of high-resolution Doppler radars to improve the quality of its forecasts. Unfortunately, SAWS radar imaging is not syndicated to commercial news services and is thus difficult to find online.

The average temperature in Cape Town remains relatively mild all year long. Unlike other destinations, the average temperature never drops below freezing, even in July and August. In fact, during a stay in Cape Town in August, you can expect the average temperature to be 13°C (55°F). This balmy temperature is great for exploring Cape Town.  Like the other winter months of June and July, you can expect the average high temperature to reach 18°C (64°F). Similarly, every day the temperature drops after sunset, and during August the average low temperature is a cool 8°C (46°F).

Animals will concentrate around waterholes and rivers when other water resources dry up.  However the average morning temperature is 6°C/42°F. Night temperatures can drop below freezing, especially in the dryer Kalahari areas. You will need to pack winter clothing because morning game drives in open vehicles will be cold.
