Flights to Cape Town

Everybody has a reason to book flights to Cape Town. The Mother City has everything: beautiful beaches, lively lounges and restaurants, and five-star hotels from which to explore them all. Historically, it was a busy port for travellers sailing past the tip of Africa. Today, the melting pot of cultures keeps visitors coming from all over the world.

Cape Town is one of the most photogenic cities in the world, from the golden beaches and aquamarine oceans of the coast to the exotic wildlife inland, all overseen by the majestic Table Mountain. Needless to say, you’ll want to bring a camera.

Take that beautiful landscape, add good weather for most of the year, and you get a wonderfully outdoorsy lifestyle. On weekends you’ll find the locals hiking in Cape Town (check out Lion’s Head mountain and Cape Point), heading into the forest for a braai (barbecue) or hanging out on the beach. Fish Hoek, St James, Clifton, Hout Bay and Bloubergstrand are the most popular sandy spots.

Being a city on the coast, the seafood is as fresh and tasty as you’d expect, whether you’re eating calamari in a restaurant or digging into a slice of fish from a paper parcel on the beach. With such a diverse population, you can find pretty much any international cuisine that you fancy, and the local Cape Malay food is tasty too. Just don’t stuff yourself so much that you can’t hit the town afterwards.

By night, Cape Town really comes into its own, with a dining and nightlife scene to rival the best of them. The city has nightlife venues featuring live jazz, rock, trance and everything in between. Coupled with the hospitality of the city’s residents, it makes for an unforgettable night out.

What to do in Cape Town

See the penguins on Boulders Beach

Cape Town has some lovely beaches, from surfers’ paradise Muizenberg to sun-worshippers’ favourite Clifton. Maybe the most unique one is Boulders Beach, with its colony of African penguins. Children love to watch them waddle along the shore – add the calm seas and nearby Boulders Beach Lodge and Restaurant, and you’ve got a great family day out.

Dive with great white sharks

Getting up close to Cape Town’s deadliest predator is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. To do it the right way, head two hours east to the eco-friendly conservation company, White Shark Projects, in Gansbaai, a town hailed as the ‘great white shark capital of the world’.

Tour the Winelands

South Africa’s vineyards are renowned all over the world, and famous regions such as Paarl and Stellenbosch are well worth travelling out of the city centre for. As well as proving educational, these excursions into some of the region’s most beautiful scenery can end at some top-notch restaurants.

Where to eat in Cape Town

Majestik Cafe (Take-out)

This beachside cafe is a slice of Cape Town history; it’s been serving fish and chips and soft-serve ice cream to hungry surfers and beach lovers since 1937. Just try not to get too distracted by the Aladdin’s cave of amazing retro memorabilia. There’s no seating – you just grab your lunch and take it to the beach.

Two Oceans (Seafood)

Since it opened in 1995, this seafood restaurant has been feeding the hungry masses that make the journey to Cape Point – the tip of the continent where the Atlantic and Indian Ocean currents meet. The views of the bays below will take your breath away, and the fish is some of the freshest around.

Bo Kaap Kombuis (Cape Malay)

This is the best place in the city to try authentic South African cuisine – specifically, the distinctive flavours of Cape Malay cooking. Located in the multi-coloured, multicultural neighbourhood of Bokaap, as you tuck into your lunch you can soak up gorgeous views of Table Mountain and Table Bay.
