It’s been a long time since South Africa’s been open to tourists, so here’s a refresher course on how to make the most of your Cape Town trip which could be as early as December 2020 or January 2021.
Check out this Cape Town travel guide as a reminder or as a starting point for first-time travel to the Mother City.
1. Find the Best Centrally-Located Accommodation
Cape Town offers an overwhelming array of places to stay, from five-star hotels to backpackers’ accommodation.
Whichever you choose, you’re assured of warm hospitality and amazing experiences on your doorstep. If you want to make the most of what the city has to offer, it’s best to opt for self-catering accommodation close to the major sites.
Self-catering accommodation gives you the freedom to explore all the best that the city has to offer.
2. How to Get Around Cape Town
Uber’s one of the easiest ways to get around the city for single trips and hiring a car gives you the freedom to go wherever you want.
If you’re not sure where to start, the hop-on-hop-off bus travels between major places of interest almost every day and offers a range of cost-effective price points for explorers.

- Table Mountain

How about helicopter tours, hot air balloon rides, cookery classes, and arts and crafts activities to add interest to your stay?
5. Enjoy Cape Town Dining
You’ll never be able to experience the depths of Cape Town’s culinary environment in one trip.
