Christmas In Cape Town

Over the Christmas holidays Ida and I visited Cape Town , South Africa. This is a bustling exciting destination, considered one of the most beautiful regions on earth. The city, reminiscent of San Francisco, circles the base of Table Mountain and offers something for everyone. It is a very walkable city with friendly multicultural residents and a good cosmopolitan mix of business and leisure establishments. The V & A Waterfront is the most visited tourist attraction in the city. The Nelson Mandela Gateway is located on the waterfront and is the departure point for ferries to Robben Island where Mr. Mandela was incarcerated for 26 years under the apartheid regime. Delta Air Lines flies to Cape Town from Atlanta, Ga. (with a stopover in Dakar, Senegal). The flight takes approximately 20 hours. There’s so much to see and do in this city and an added bonus is that the exchange rate is very favorable. During our visit the rate was about 9.5 rands to the dollar. It’s one of the few places where you truly can get more bang for your buck! It’s summertime/peak season in South Africa in December. To get the best vacation value, consider traveling during May or September. These are seasonal shoulder months and prices are generally lower.
