Information about Cape Town
Cape Town is a nerve centre of South African tourism in a sense. After Johannesburg, it is the most visited city, and home to the iconic Table Mountain overlooking the city like an alert sentinel. This peak is almost like the symbol of Cape Town, which is lovingly called the Mother City by the locals. Hiking, trekking, abseiling, mountain climbing and cable car riding are the fun-filled activities that the slopes of the Table Mountain offer, among other things. But that is not all Cape Town has on plate. With the most beautiful beaches like Grotto, Muizenberg and the Clifton Bay, serene hiking trails with sunset points like Chapman’s Peak Drive, water sports opportunities like shark diving in a cage, surfing and snorkelling, and legendary landmarks like Robben Island and A&V Waterfront around, Cape Town is a one of its kind destination.
Here are some of the important things you need to know about Cape Town before going, in brief. Consult a Cape Town travel guide to know more about the city, its culture, cuisine and what all it has to offer in detail.
Weather in Cape Town: Cape Town enjoys a warm Mediterranean climate with equal summers and winters. Cape Town weather during the warm months is hot and dry, with temperature reaching the 30s and 40s gradually. Despite the warmth, the attraction of beach holidays brings in a whole lot of tourists during summer. Winters are cool and wet with quite a bit of rainfall. Overall, Cape Town climate is suitable for visit all around the year, as it never quite becomes extreme in nature.
Nightlife in Cape Town: Longmarket Street, Long Steet, Bree Street – these are the places to find popular night time haunts in Cape Town. Among famous bars of Long Street there is Beerhouse, Honest Chocolate, Fiction Bar, Aces and Spades and Coco. For a more elegant crowd, visit Madison Square and the posh celebrity haunt, Saint.
Shopping in Cape Town: Victoria and Alfred Waterfront is one of the most posh shopping areas in Cape Town, followed by Canal Walk and Greenmarket Square. From global brands to local African curios, you will find everything in the shopping centres of Woodstock. Among Cape Town shopping malls, Cavendish Square and Willowbridge are quite famous and deserve a visit. Even if you do not shop from everywhere, simply window shopping is very much rewarding.
Food in Cape Town: While visiting, eating Cape Town food which is indigenous to the city is very important for the experience. On the must-have list there is the Capetonian staple Gatsby – a type of sandwich, Bilton – a type of dried meat, Bobotie – meatloaf with raisins, Boerewors – traditionally barbecued sausages and Koeksisters – twisted African pastries for the sweet tooth.
Festivals in Cape Town: Knowing Cape Town facts before visiting the city will tell you about the various festivals the city celebrates. Other than the usual Christmases and New Years, the International Jazz Festival, Whale Festival in Hermanus, Up the Creek, Kirstenbosch Summer Concert are some which you should not miss at all.

Trip to South AfricaWe had a wonderful time in South Africa, Cape Town especially. Perfect execution on field as it was planned by Flyocity. I highly recommend Flyocity for the trip of South Africa, especially Inderjeet who was extremely supportive in planning the trip and even during the trip also. Skydiving at Cape Town & bungy jumping at Knysna
Trip to South AfricaWell Organised and excellent guides & drivers. Knysna - should have stayed a day more there !
Trip to South AfricaThe service provided by travel agent was fully satisfactory. Hotel facilities were excellent. Drivers/ guides were caring and polite. The promises made during booking were one hundred percent fulfilled. Lot of... Table mountain, cape point, seal island, safari....
Trip to South AfricaWe had seen their earlier reviews and booked M K Holidays through travel triangle for our honeymoon tour to south africa. They have arranged it extremely well. Every promises have been catered to. All the guides (they were drivers too) were extremely knowledgeable and experienced. They were polite, punctual and reliable. The itinerary was very well structured. We covered most of the places and things to do, leaving a few, because of weather conditions. The cars arranged for us were very well maintained. Overall, we were absolutely satisfied and looking forward to our next interaction. One very small thing was, few information regarding our tour was delayed till the last moment. Although everything was perfectly arranged, but sharing the information well ahead in time would save us from the anxiety before our travel. The Bamboos (Guest House) was booked for us for three days stay at Knysna. However, you cannot expect a 4 star comfort at Bamboos like the other hotels but it has a different taste of its own with a homely peaceful atmosphere with a well equipped kitchen inside the room. However, we personally enjoyed this different stay at The Bamboos at Knysna.
Trip to South AfricaWhile I found manoj ji a very nice and always accomodating person, I was not at all impressed by his management. Here is my pros and cons Pros: 1. Very well versed with the SA market 2. Provided very nice recommendations 3. Definitely will give a good price Cons 1. His management is not good 2. You have to chase him for getting the things done despite regular calling 3. He will forget to get the booking done- our hotel was not booked until the day we reached there. This really pissed me off
Trip to South AfricaThe agent had been supportive and accommodative. He ensured we got the best hotels. The trip was managed well by the agent (Flyocity) The Sky Dive and Bungy Jump :)
