Getting To Cape Town
Getting To And Discovering All That Cape Town Has To Offer At Competitive Rates
Getting to South Africa's most famous city, Cape Town from most international hubs is relatively easy, as most airlines fly directly into the city at least a few times a week (some on a daily basis).
Connecting to the rest of Africa is also easy from here as most African Airlines fly in and out of the city as they do at O.R Tambo in Johannesburg. Ideal for Adding Namibia, Botswana, Kruger National Park, Victoria Falls, or Dar es Salaam to your itinerary.
The easiest way of getting here from most, if not all, international visitors is to fly directly into Cape Town International Airport. The airport was upgraded in 2010 and now ranks one of the best worldwide.
As you can see from the below listing of Airlines that fly directly into Cape Town International Airport, one has a choice and lots of choices. The below listings do not include airlines from North or South America.
The city centre is a short 20-minute drive from the airport itself as is Seapoint, V&A Waterfront and Constantia.
We always recommend a transfer service from the airport to your hotel, at which point you can meet the tour you are joining, or your rental vehicle can be dropped off. This way, you do not have to wait in line to collect your vehicle and then start your holiday by driving in a strange country in traffic (and it is safer).
