Spring in Cape Town - Fiesta, Flowers and Whale Watching Time



Spring in Cape Town

The temperature in Cape Town starts rising again: spring is in the air. Cape Town bursts into bloom. The west coast is world famous for its flower season. The colourful display north of Cape Town is a major spring attraction which you must not miss.

Spring season is a perfect time to visit Cape Town. The spring weather in the Cape is soft and mild. Average temperatures range between 15 degrees in September and 17 degrees in October with plenty of days in the [mid] twenties. Days lengthen and you can enjoy the soft crispness of the Cape Town sun.

What to do in Cape Town during spring? There are so many options! Spring is the best time for whale watching. So head for Hermanus – the whale capital of the world - or Plettenberg Bay.

For the sporty types spring is the ideal season for hiking. The sun is mild, the surroundings are gorgeous with all the blooming flowers and the wind takes it easy during spring. So put on your hiking boots and take one of the routes that lead up Table Mountain or climb Lion’s Head for full moon.


Spring Activities

After a long, wet winter, it’s good to get out into the sunshine and fresh air and celebrate Arbor Month in September, and City Parks has just the place for you.

There are more than 3 580 places within the city, ranging from small open spaces to its five flagship regional parks – the Company’s Garden, Arderne Gardens, Wynberg Park, Maynardville Park and the Durbanville Rose Garden.

In celebration of Arbor Month,the City is to plant 738 trees as part of the Parks’ theme of ‘Plant a tree for life’ and commitment to promoting a healthy environment and beautifying the city.

The Arbor Month festivities kick off on 1 September at the Company’s Garden with the switching on of special Arbor Month lights and displays down Government Avenue. These promote the theme of ‘Healthy parks, healthy people’.
