Peak Season: 

Flights to Cape Town are packed between the months of November and February, when it’s summer in South Africa and tourists are flocking to the tip of the continent to enjoy the hottest spots in the sun-soaked Southern Hemisphere. 

Off-Peak Season:

Getting around Cape Town

The best way to get downtown after your Cape Town flight is by hopping aboard a taxi or bus at the airport. In the city’s centre, the cheapest option to get around is Cape Town’s public bus system. Save some money by buying your tickets ahead of time and in bulk – books of 10 tickets are sold. But be careful if you’re on a tight schedule.

Shopaholics – be ready to splurge! Fabrics, jewellery and other handmade wares are available in the marketplace. Several quaint cafes have sprung up around the square, so if your wallet is weary have a seat and watch the flurry of flea market activity for an afternoon.

  • If a spot of fresh air sounds tempting, head for the sea after your Cape Town flight and get out of the city for a thought-provoking day trip. Robben Island, just 11 kilometres from Cape Town and smack in the middle of Table Bay, is a solemn reminder of the sacrifices South African freedom fighters made to end Apartheid. The island served as a prison for everyone from political prisoners to lepers, the most famous of the incarcerated being Nelson Mandela. Tours of the island are conducted by former prisoners, and the museum at Robben Island pays tribute to the will power of those who endured for liberation.
