Studying in Cape Town
About Cape Town
1. What is the best time to come to Cape Town?
Cape Town is exciting any time of the year. In summer you can enjoy the hot weather, whilst in spring there are lots of wild flowers and the whales come to Cape Town. The weather is also beautiful at this time but you might have cold nights. Come in autumn, when it is starting to get cold, there will still be lots of excitement. Winter is when you can enjoy the restaurants, Table Mountain, and a lot more.
2. How is the Weather in General?
Temperatures differ according to the seasons, but they can go up to 35 degrees in summer and as low as 8 degrees in cold winter. However, we have the wind (South Easterly) which we call the Cape Doctor; this blows very hard sometimes.
