How to Reach

By Air

Access to Cape Town by air is possible, with arrivals landing at Cape Town International Airport, which is located 20kms from the city centre. Over 20 national and international airlines provide regular service from many parts of the world. Door-to-door shuttle bus services and taxis are available to take you into the city.

By Rail

Most land travellers arrive in Cape Town from Johannesburg or Pretoria. The main passenger line from Johannesburg is the Trans-Karoo, which runs daily between the two cities. The trip takes about 25 hours and is very reasonably priced. There are three classes including sleepers. First and second class seats must be reserved in advance, but tickets for third class seats can be purchased just before departure.

For a much more luxurious and leisurely experience, you can travel from Johannesburg or Pretoria on the Blue Train or Rovos Rail. These trains depart once or twice a week and take a scenic route. Cape Town’s train station is in the centre of the city, on Adderley Street.

By Bus

Bus travel may be faster than the train, but it is not nearly as comfortable. All services operated by the major intercity bus companies - Greyhound, Intercape and Translux - terminate at the junction of Adderley and Strand Streets. There is also the Baz Bus minivan service, which is aimed more at backpackers. The Baz Bus has a flexible, hop-on and hop-off policy, and travels throughout the country.
