Your flight to Cape Town will touch down in the futuristic gleam of the updated Cape Town International Airport (CPT), and just outside is a city alive with individuality and spirit. Head to the picturesque waterfront to take in traditional Zulu music in the shadow of the Ferris wheel. While there, you may be lucky enough to see seals basking in the sun, or the bright red glow of the season’s phytoplankton blooms. Wherever you end up, gorgeous scenery and unexpected wildlife await when you fly into South Africa’s “Mother City.”
Transportation From CPT
All travelers on flights to Cape Town benefit from modern amenities as soon as the plane touches down, including a full-service bank and post office. Recharge with a cup of coffee or fresh-caught seafood before you make your way to your hotel near Cape Town International. Hotel shuttles are the most convenient transportation, so prearrange with your lodging, if possible. If you don’t have a shuttle, you can find authorized taxis at the cab stands outside the terminals, or rent a car and cruise down Route N2 to get to the beach in no time (just be aware that driving can be dangerous at night). For a more economical option, take the MyCiti rapid bus to the Civic Centre Station downtown. This bus system runs to many popular tourist destinations, like Table View, where you can snap that picture-perfect image of the iconic Table Mountain. Want to feel the wind in your hair? Renting a motorbike or even a three-wheeled sidecar is your ticket to freedom.
