Before you go

We recommend that you check the Foreign and Commonwealth office website to help stay safe overseas and to make informed decisions about travelling abroad. You should only travel if you are fit to travel and able to participate in all part of the services that you have booked to undertake.

You will need to comply with the health requirements of your destination, as well as prove that you have any necessary vaccinations for your travel arrangements. Consult your doctor about any health requirements for your destination beforehand and visit IATA Travel Centre to find out what vaccinations you’ll need.

Should you need to take any medication with you, check before travel that you are allowed to take it into the country you are visiting. Some countries do not permit certain medicines even though they may be widely accepted in your own country. Take any paperwork or authorisation from your doctor that may be required.

Millions of people travel the world each year and enjoy trouble free trips but crimes against people and property are a fact of life. It makes sense to take the same responsibility for your own safety abroad as you would do at home.

Here are some tips you may find useful:

Use credit cards where possible to avoid carrying excessive amounts of cash or travellers cheques.
Use the hotel’s safety deposit box if there is one.
Lock your door even when you’re inside your room, but when you leave make sure you close and lock your windows, doors and balconies.
Don’t walk around poorly lit areas and beaches after dark and don’t feel embarrassed about crossing the road if you feel uneasy about someone in the street.
Try to use only registered or official taxis, so ask the hotel for guidance.
Drink responsibly.

Cape Town, The Cosmopolitan City

It is known as the most cosmopolitan city in Africa. Indeed Cape Town enjoys a seafarer’s tradition. This open mindedness reflects in the cultural and commercial activities and the city’s lifestyle, which becomes impregnated with a festive touch at the end of the year.

The Cape region, dominated by the famous Table Mountain, hosts many treasures, the most well-known itinerary along the Cape wine estates on the route through Cape Floral Kingdom, from Somerset West going, Stellenbosch, P’niel, Franschhoek, Paarl and Wellingtion, all the way through to Ceres. The wine estates (the oldest date back from 1685) produce award-winning wines and offer lovely local folklore to delight the visitor. The latter is welcome to taste the fruit of the vine, the local wines and get a few bottles to take home as a souvenir.

Cape Town also has a deeply rooted seafarer’s tradition inherited from the first immigrants more than four centuries ago. At the meeting point between the Indian and the Atlantic Oceans, Cape Town features superb beaches such as Clifton, Camp Bay, Sea Point, Milnerton and Blaaubergstrand, even if the waters of the Atlantic Ocean can be quite cool.

On the Indian Ocean side, where the water is warmer, take a drive to to False Bay and Boulders Beach well-known for its penguin’s colony and visit Fish Hooks Saint James or Nuremburg.

As far as culture and education are concerned, Cape Town has a lifestyle of its own since it hosts the most famous university on the continent as well as many prestigious schools, catering for a large population of students. The Cape Town Opera has become a reference for those looking for ballets, operas and other major cultural productions in the region.

Last but not the least, the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront is the ideal place to a walk, do some shopping or simply enjoy great entertainment. The restaurants offer a wide range of international menus, with a focus on seafood and local traditional dishes. And the boutiques display the latest fashion as well as stunning craft that reflect the colourful and creative local spirit.
