Cape Town International Airport
The airport was opened in 1954 as D.F. Malan Airport and was changed to Cape Town International in 1990. With South Africa set to host the 2010 FIFA World Cup the airport was extensively renovated and expanded. There are two terminals linked by a central terminal which handles all check-ins after which passengers split into domestic and international. Most of the facilities such as banks, shops and restaurants are available here. The International terminal has these facilities plus duty free shops, to enjoy some retail therapy.
Also known as the Mother City, Cape Town’s beauty begins with the famous Table Mountain. The V&A Waterfront is one of the most well-known tourist destinations near the city centre. Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, Constantia wine farms and the Cable Car to the top of Table Mountain are also popular with tourists. Cape Town is also the natural starting place for a road trip. The West Coast and the Garden Route are obvious options but have a look at the Cape Wine lands.
