Sometimes, the Cape Town summer weather can get a bit harsh, particularly when outdoors. Pack your favourite sun lotion, hat and glasses for protection, when sight-seeing during the middle hours of the day. Pack light cotton clothes for comfort in summer with a light coat. If travelling in winter, research the temperatures of where you are staying.
If the weather turns cold during winter times you can always go to V&A Waterfront. Other wet weather activities include the Gold museum, the Jewish museum, the Slave House, the brilliant Heart of Cape Town heart transplant museum or the wonderful Science Centre at Canal Walk.
