Cape Town -
Getting There & Away

When flying to Cape Town you will arrive at the Cape Town International Airport (CPT), ranked as the best airport in Africa (2012, 2013, 2016, 2017 & 2018 World Airport Awards).

Cape Town International is located about a 20-minute drive east of the city, some 20 km's away. There are about 40 international flights flying into and out of the airport each week, connecting Cape Town to several major cities across the world. There are direct flights between Cape Town and the European cities of London, Amsterdam, Paris, Munich, Rome and Zurich, as well as Dubai, Istanbul, Mauritius and Singapore. Many other flights connect Cape Town and international destinations in Asia, North America, Australasia and more, but these fly via Johannesburg or elsewhere. There are also international flights between Cape Town and other major cities in Africa, including Livingstone (Zambia), Luanda (Angola), Maputo (Mozambique), Maun (Botswana) and Windhoek (Namibia).

It is sometimes slightly more expensive to catch an international flight to Cape Town than it is to fly to Johannesburg, so if you plan to visit both then it may be a bit cheaper to take the internal domestic flight from Johannesburg instead of Cape Town. Johannesburg in Gauteng is the better option for travellers heading to Kruger Park, private game reserves in Mpumalanga and several neighbouring countries, given its proximity. Jo'burg is a more popular entry and exit point than Cape Town as it connects with a wider range of international and local destinations and offers more frequent flights.

In addition to being a legendary travel destination in its own right, the beautiful city of Cape Town also serves as the springboard for to tours of the scenic and renowned Cape Winelands and Garden Route areas. 

The cheapest way to get to Cape Town once you're in South Africa is by bus or by train. You can travel by rail or bus from Johannesburg and most major cities across the country, but be warned - these are long journeys. You can take domestic flights between several hubs in the country, choosing between South African Airways (SAA) and cheap airlines such as Mango or Kulula.

Running between Cape Town International and the city are metered taxis, private shuttle services and public buses (MyCity Bus), all of which take around 20 minutes (depending on traffic). You can pre-book bus trips or just hop onto the next one, and when catching a taxi the official provider, Touch Down Taxis, is recommended. Alternatively, you could rent a budget car and mission on your own. There is also the option of being collected and dropped off by your tour operator or lodge/hotel/guesthouse.

Domestic flights connect the Cape Town International Airport with Bloemfontein, Durban, East London, George, Hoedspruit, Johannesburg, Nelspruit, Plettenberg Bay, Port Elizabeth and more. The most popular domestic flights handled at the Cape Town airport are those to and from Johannesburg's Lanseria and OR Tambo airports, with over 30 daily flights. South African Airways and British Airways are the two main domestic carries, along with the budget airlines - Mango and Kulula.

Within Africa the airport operates between Cape Town and Gabarone, Livingstone, Luanda, Maputo, Maun and Windhoek, to name a few. Direct international flights connect Cape Town International Airport  with major cities in Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Mauritius. There are non-stop flights to and from Amsterdam, Doha, Dubai, Frankfurt, Istanbul, Munich, Paris, Singapore, Zürich and, the most popular route, between London and Cape Town.
