Things to Know About Tour Of Cape Town

When to Visit

Getting Around

The best way to get around Cape Town is via car, and it’s recommended to either hire a rental or join guided tours. Metered taxis are available, but there are no taxi stands so it’s advisable to keep the number of reliable taxi service at hand. Uber is also an option.

Local Customs

English is widely spoken here—with a dash of the local lingo. South Africans say “sorry” instead of “excuse me,” use “oh, shame,” as a term of endearment, call traffic lights “robots,” greet people with “Howzit?” and use “izzit?” instead of “really?”

Things to Bring

Traveler planning on a multi-day Garden Route tour or a visit to the Klein Karoo should pack warm layers as temperatures drop dramatically at night.

What the Locals Know
