The weather in Africa varies from city to city but generally the peak seasons run from July to October so expect higher prices on flights to Africa then. December and January can also have hordes of tourists but flights to Africa become a lot more expensive, as does accommodation. That said, December to March can be uncomfortably hot so if you’re someone who doesn’t deal with the heat too well, visit in October for a bit of cooler weather and cheap flights to Africa.

How to get from the airport to the city centre?

O.R Tambo International Airport:

The airport is 21km from the city centre, making transport quite quick and easy to arrange. The Gautrain operates a fast rail service to Sandton where you can change for Johannesburg. The journey takes around 25 minutes in total and is the easiest way to get to the centre. You could also rent a car or jump in a taxi – make sure to agree on a price before getting into a taxi as you could end up being ripped off at the end of your trip! Finally most hotels offer a transfer service to and from the airport.

Cairo International Airport:

The easiest way to get to the centre from the airport is to jump onto the newly established shuttle service operating straight from the airport. It has several stops including downtown Cairo, and gives you a great option to choose. Tourists are normally hassled my taxi drivers as soon as they leave the airport. While this is a convenient choice, make sure to either avoid the black and white cabs as they have no metre, or agree on a price before you get in. Taxi drivers here are notorious for ripping off tourists so keep your wits about you.

Cape Town International Airport

The airport is located 20km away from the centre of Cape Town. You can take a metered taxi to the city centre for around R300 and R400 but these prices can vary. Some taxi’s will charge by the kilometre or some will have flat rates. Either way you should agree a fee before getting into the taxi. The most cost-effective way to travel to or from the airport is the MyCiti bus, it runs every 20 minutes and the service operates from around 05:00 until 22:00. Every passenger will have to purchase a myconnect pass which is R35, except passengers under 4 who can travel for free.
