More Information about Cape Town
Cape Town Airport
Flights from the UK to Cape Town will disembark at Cape Town International Airport. Cape Town International Airport (CPT) is Africa's third largest airport and the second busiest in South Africa. Originally referred to as DF Malan Airport, Cape Town Airport is a hub for South African Airways and a major gateway for tourists travelling to South Africa.
Cape Town's history is as diverse as its landscape. Originally the area was inhabited by ancestors of the Kalahari Bushmen. A European colony first settled in the area in 1652 and later went on to be occupied by the French and then the English in 1806. In 1946 South Africa established apartheid, resulting in the segregation of races throughout the country, including Cape Town. As a result of apartheid, South Africa was withdrawn from the Commonwealth.
This period ended in 1990 after Nelson Mandela was released from jail and made his first public speech from the balcony of Cape Town City Hall. In 1994 the country was re-established as part of the Commonwealth and tourism boomed as a result. With such a distinct history, Cape Town's museums are incredibly interesting, particularly those surrounding the history of apartheid and Nelson Mandela.
Today Cape Town is home to a colourful community spanning a wide range of ethnicities. Its cultural melting pot can easily be seen at the city's numerous open-air markets. Loud, colourful and uniquely creative, Cape Town markets, such as the Greenmarket Square Flea Market, are a great place to mingle with locals and get an idea for life in Cape Town.
The average maximum temperature for Cape Town ranges between 18 and 27 degrees. The hottest month is February with an average temperature of 22 degrees and the coldest month is July with an average temperature of 13 degrees.
