Cape Town is the second largest – but touristically more relevant – city in South Africa and especially known for the Table Mountain and the beaches in the south. The city is well connected to Europe and the rest of Africa by air travel.
Compared to Johannesburg, flights to Cape Town are pretty much always more expensive. A good price is 500€ – 600€ for a round trip ticket in economy class. Anything under 500€ can be considered a good deal, occasionally you can find fares around 400€, although without checked luggage for the most part.
Best Time to Visit
The ideal time to visit Cape Town is during the summer from the end of January until the end of April; the hottest temperatures are from December to February, although it is very windy during this time.
From the Airport to the City
Due to high crime rates, it is not recommended to take a bus or other forms of public transport in the regions surrounding the airport. A taxi from the airport to the city center costs about 18€ to 25€, an Uber is a good alternative and costs about half of that.
