Best Time to Travel
The best time to visit this part of Africa is from March to May and September to November. During these low season months, crowds lessen, prices drop, and the weather is relatively warm and dry. Carry light cotton clothes and tons of sunscreen.
Getting There and Around
The easiest way to get to Cape Town is to fly in to Cape Town International Airport. Cape Town does not have efficient local transport, so cabs are your best bet. Indian nationals need to apply for a tourist visa that takes up to a couple of weeks to process but fortunately it is free.
Where to Stay
Cape Town is a popular international tourist destination and it has a wide range of properties for all kinds of travelers. I stayed at the City Lodge by the V&A Waterfront. It is conveniently located in a safe neighbourhood.
What to Eat
Cape Town is famous for its delectable food and wine that is to die for. There are plenty of restaurants that offer a wide range of options, ranging from exotic game meat to South African take on international dishes. You will not have a bad meal in Cape Town!
