Hiking in winter – or is it summer!?

5th May 2017 – 10:14 am

April must have been one of the warmest on record in Cape Town with temperatures around 30C on many days. The trend seems to be continuing in May with temperatures still well above average. So not matter what time of the year you’re planning to be here to hike Table Mountain expect the unexpected!

All Capetonians are hoping for rain as our dams are well below what they should be and we have strict water restrictions but as yet no rationing.  However please be considerate during your stay and use water sparingly.

May is looking like a good month to hike Table Mountain, less wind and not too hot. It is always a good idea to be flexible if you can and have a additional day you can swap to if necessary. Have some warmer layers with you and a jacket – as with all mountains you never know how conditions will be at the top and even though it doesn’t feel like it winter is approaching!
