At the south-western edge of the African continent, you’ll find a rocky peninsula that extends into the Atlantic Ocean called the Cape Peninsula. The Cape of Good Hope and Cape Point sits on the southern end of the peninsula while Table Mountain is located on the northern end, overlooking Cape Town. The peninsula stretches a long 52 kilometres from Cape Point to Mouille point.
Within these 52 kilometres, there’s a lot to see and do for both locals and international visitors. A sightseeing drive to Cape Point and around the Cape Peninsula is a “must do” day trip when visiting Cape Town. While it’s entirely possible to explore on your own, you’ll have a deeper experience with a Cape Peninsula Private Tour.

When Is the Best Time to Visit Cape Town
Cape Town enjoys a mild climate with warm, dry, sometimes windy summers (October to April), and cool, wet winters (May to September). If you’re looking for a beach holiday in Cape Town, the best time, when temperatures peak, are between December and February. You can expect the beaches to be busy with a sunny festive cheer in the air along with vibrant nightlife. As mentioned before, it can become extremely windy with the over-enthusiastic south-easter clearing beaches occasionally. If you see a cloud hanging around Table Mountain, you know the wind is blowing.
By the end of February, the wind seems to calm down and most of the visitors return home. This means that mid-February to April in Cape Town is absolutely fabulous since you’ll get to enjoy less wind, fewer crowds on our beaches and better rates.
Summertime is not great for hiking since it’s too hot and the wind can interfere with your plans. So if you’re interested in a Cape Town hiking holiday, late April to June is the best time. You can expect great hiking weather with crisp, clear days.
If your vacations are planned around food or wine, then June to August would be the perfect time for a Cape Town holiday. The rainy winter weather will offer cosy fires wherever you go whether it is a restaurant, indoor market or wine estate. It is also easier to get bookings at renowned restaurants.
The best time for a peninsula tour cape town is any time of the year. The Mother City is known to have four seasons in the course of a day so if you come prepared for any kind of weather, you’ll be just fine.
