The Bravofly Guide to Cape Town
If you fancy something different from your family vacation, we’ve got just the thing for you, with the Bravofly guide to Cape Town.
Getting There and Getting Around
Obviously, flying to the bottom of Africa won’t come cheap, but if you book early enough you can secure a flight for under a grand and it usually takes between 11 and 13 hours to get down there from London, so be prepared for a long haul journey! Find the cheapest flights to Cape Town with the Bravofly flight search engine.
Getting around the city’s actually pretty easy, as Cape Town has a fantastic public transport system. Catch a shuttle bus from the airport to get to the city centre, and once you’re there, use the bus or metro to get to where you want to go. A good tip is to take a trip on one of the special city sightseeing bus tours, to fully get to grips with everything Cape Town has to offer.
Where Should You Stay?
There are plenty of top class hotels in Cape Town , no matter your budget, and if you want to find the right accommodation for you, check out your options on the Bravofly flight search engine.
Personally, we would suggest you stay in either central Cape Town – known as the home of the world famous boutique hotel Cape Cadogan, Tamerskloof or Green Point; both central areas in the city, within walking distance of everything Cape Town has to offer.
Where Should You Eat?
There are more fabulous cuisine houses than you can poke a stick at in Cape Town. If you want something truly unique, you have to try The Roundhouse and Rumbullion in Camps Bay, which combine a beautiful natural setting with unique individual dining spaces and a menu to die for. It’s so unique, it’s a UNESCO world heritage site.
Other top notch restaurants in the city include The Opal – known as one of the most romantic eateries in Cape Town, Delaire Graff Restaurant, Stellenbosch – a concept wine restaurant famous for what it can do with organic ingredients and Beluga, Cape Town’s sushi capital!
Where Should You Go?
There are so many places to go in Cape Town. If you’re looking for the classic beach family holiday, you’re in luck, as the city has some of the best beaches in Africa. You have to try popular resort Clifton Beaches; only a ten minute drive from the city, it’s all pure white sand and azure seas as far as the eye can see.
If that isn’t your thing, then why not try own of the city’s many attractions? Check out the city’s famous natural beauty with trip to the Cape of Good Hope, Table Mountain National Park or Robben Island!
