Cape Town Geography and Climate

Cape Town’s Geography

Cape Town occupies the southwestern most point of Africa. The City centre lies embedded between Table Mountain, Devils Peak, Lions Head and Signal Hill on the one side and borders on the Table Bay and the Atlantic Ocean on the other side. Table Mountain extends along the Twelve Apostles spanning the coastline of the Atlantic oceans with beautiful beaches, bays and valleys until the Cape of Good Hope. Visitors will experience a mixture between awe and comfort, creating a never-ending feeling of belonging. The Atlantic offers quick refreshment at spots such as Camps Bay, Clifton, Sea Point, Dolphin Beach, or Big Bay, and lends the perfect backdrop to a romantic sun downer. The early bird will experience spectacular sunrises on the other side of the peninsula: e.g. in Muizenberg, Kalk Bay, Fishhoek, or Simons Town, and can enjoy the warmth of the Indian Ocean.

Cape Town’s Climate

The Cape Peninsula offers a temperate climate. During summer (December-March) the temperatures seldomly climb over 30°C, and the Cape Doctor (South Easter wind) still rids Cape Town of any fog or fumes, just as it did centuries ago – saving Cape Town from the plague. Cape Town is beautiful in autumn and spring days, maintaining a temperature averaging 20°C. A lot of tourists even prefer the winter months, were the rain is intermittent at 15°C, filling the city’s dams. Holiday makers particularly enjoy the rough and raging seas along with the accompanying storms at this time of year. Both sides of the peninsula are well within reach in a short 30-40min drive from your accommodation at Keren’s vine guesthouse in Stellenbosch.
