Cape Town Holiday Packages

Catch a break, top up your tan and cage dive with a shark – just a few things you can do on a lazy day in Cape Town. If you’re up for a more energetic experience, many Cape Town holiday packages will include a hike to the stunning peak of Table Mountain – the perfect opportunity to snap panoramas of the Twelve Apostles, Cape of Good Hope and False Bay. An Indian and Atlantic Ocean helicopter tour or a tour of the coastal town of Hermanus during a day out whale watching will whet your appetite for a Cape Town jazz safari or beer and wine tasting in any one of the picturesque valleys that flank the city. All of this can be done on a pretty tight budget if you’re clever with your coin and willing to do some forward planning. A Student Flights travel consultant can help to connect the dots for you by way of arranging add-ons, tours, or packages that best suit your desires.

About Cape Town

You’ll be stupefied by sunshine, surf and stunning scenery before you’ve spent a single cent in Cape Town.

The cultural vibe of the city itself is unique in both ethnicity and social character, as the city’s many multi-racial communities are still emerging from the harsh rulings of apartheid that dictated their existence for so long. The communities of Cape Town embody the 'Rainbow Nation' South Africa is striving for in miniature, all against a backdrop of Mother Nature’s best, which gives travellers the opportunity to tap into their thrill-seeking desires while watching one of the world’s most symbolic destinations shape its future with hope and newfound confidence.
