The winter in Cape Town offers some of the best hiking weather. Its generally a pleasant temperature and the wind is often quite light. Of course we do get some rain but plenty of lovely blue skies too.
One of the biggest treats at this time of year is when you get above the clouds.
Often those in the city will be thinking the day is miserable and grey and its tempting to stay at home with a cup of hot chocolate. However, those energetic enough to think a hike in the clouds will still be fun are well rewarded.
Even better is when you reach the cable car area there are no crowds or queues. The tour busses by pass the mountain thinking its clouded in!
