Wild Weather Guide

If you live in Cape Town, there is one thing you know for sure: You never know what weather you will get. We are blessed with two oceans, a magnificent mountain and the South Pole as our closest neighbour in the South. These are factors that make it almost impossible to predict the weather, which again makes planning an outing with children quite a challenge.

Wild Weather Guide

South-Easter and blazing sun, North-Wester and rain, windless days with mist and beautiful, warm summer sunsets. We have it all, and we just need to know how to deal with it! Winter can be a test for parents of young children when the rains continue for weeks on end, and summer days can be too hot to be outside all day. In this section, you will find tips for indoor activities and outdoor gear, fun activities for windy days and other useful things to know about wild weather.

FUN THINGS TO DO OUTDOORS

  • Let the little ones test the cycle track at the Giraffe House - remember to bring a change of clothes!
  • Take a kite to the beach when the wind is blowing!
  • Take your Boogie board to the park and surf the puddles!
