When is the best time to do a day safari in Cape town?

The hottest month in Cape Town is February, which has average temperature of around 22 degrees, whilst June is the coldest month at around 12 degrees. July is typically the wettest month to visit Cape Town so best to bring a jacket or warm clothes during these months.
