    The winter season in SA is from middle May to Sept/Oct. This is also the rainy season in Cape Town. May/June is not so cold yet and you could be lucky and experience lovely sunny days during your whole trip. Cape Town does not have extreme temperatures - I guess between 15 and 25 degrees, so long sleeves & pants with a nice warm jacket would be fine. On the other hand, if you intend travelling to the countryside, you can expect much colder weather. Are you male of female ? From which country ? Feel free to ask for more advice !
