Table Mountain National Park and Cape Town have a Mediterranean climate – characterised by typically hot, dry summers and short, wet, yet mild winters.

Cape Town is also known for the South Easter winds that often rip through the city in Summer.

With the mountain topography of the Park, weather patterns can change quickly, often creating a hot, clear day in one area, and rainy, misty conditions in another.

When hiking in or visiting the park, it is advisable to ensure that you are equipped for all weather types. Bring all-weather gear when hiking as you can never quite predict the weather patterns.
