I found a good deal on TK for flights to CPT routed HAJ-IST-JNB-CPT and with acceptable transfer times in IST.
This would bring my mum and me to Capetown, ZA from 09-DEC thru 16-DEC.
Longhaul flights are on a A330.
As I have never been to South Africa yet, I have a few questions:
Q #1: What's to do in and around Capetown during one week of stay ?
Arrrival and departure are on Sunday, meaning that Monday thru Saturday would be available for exploring.
Btw, "Exploring" can mean "shopping", "relaxing at the waterfront", but also "going somewhere by rental car" (Stellenbosch" comes to my mind) ...
Q #2: Is there anything wrong with choosing a hotel at / next to V&A Waterfront ?
Q #3: Is there anything to be taken into account getting from the airport to the hotel v/v ? Is "Taxi" a good option or should we prefer to get a shuttle bus sent from the hotel ?
Thanks in advance for any input,
