My Journey to Capetown!
Visiting Capetown was very high on my list of priorities as the city is not only the capital of South Africa but also a gem in the African Peninsula. I asked my travel agent to book my cheap flights to South Africa from London to South Africa via a South African Airways flight and we reached Capetown in nine hours flat. I listened to some very good music and got the much needed rest that I was looking for.
When we reached Capetown and began our drive from the airport to the hotel, we were spell bound by the beauty of the imposing Table Mountain that we saw on our way to the hotel. Anyone who sees this mountain once would want to reach the summit of this mountain; such is the allure and charm of this mountain.
We rested for a day and began our sightseeing tour of the city that took us to places like the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens, Boulders Penguin Colony, and Two Ocean Aquarium where we could see a wide variety of flora and fauna.On our trip to Capetown, we wanted to explore a bit of South Africa’s history and therefore decided to explore the Langa and Khyelista townships that were inhabited by native, non-white South Africans. It also gave us an insight into the life of rural people in South Africa during the Apartheid Era. We also saw the Robben Island where Nelson Mandela once lived during his exile.
We stopped by for lunch in one of the fine-dining restaurants of Capetown that offered us authentic Xhosa cuisine that is peculiar to the region. Thereafter, we headed for some shopping to places like the Canal Walk Shopping Centre, Cobble-stoned Green Market Square, Red Shed and Waterfront Craft markets where we could find iconic clothing, footwear and accessory brands competing for our attention.
Capetown as we observed was not a very expensive destination and if you are planning to book your flights to Capetown, you should keep in mind that the total cost of your trip would depend on the kind of planning you put in planning your trip. The type of carrier and the class of travel selected also decides the total expenditure of your trip. In addition to this, the kind of accommodation you choose also has a bearing on the total expenditure that you incur on your entire trip.
Keeping these things in mind will help you make the most of your holiday in Capetown!
