Welcome to EKAPA The Heartbeat of South Africa.
Cape Town is stunning From Sea to the Sky
A coming-together of cultures, cuisines and landscapes, there’s nowhere quite like Cape Town, a singularly beautiful city crowned by the magnificent Table Mountain National Park. As you come to the city, we’re giving you the hotels around the venue.
DoubleTree – By Hilton
Overlooking the busy Cape Town harbor and with an impressive backdrop of the green slopes of Devil’s Peak, DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Cape Town – Upper Eastside offers easy access to the vibrant downtown area and the central business district. Cape Town International Airport is just 15 minutes away. We look forward to welcoming you the moment you arrive with our signature chocolate chip cookie.
Close to the central business district and the Cape Town International Convention Centre and just 15 minutes from Cape Town International airport, the Garden Court Nelson Mandela Boulevard hotel is ideally suited to business and leisure travellers alike.
Garden Court Nelson Mandela Boulevard offers guests a choice of 292 Standard and Executive en-suite rooms, with views of Signal Hill and the harbour.
Protea Hotel – By Marriot
This historical Cape Dutch Manor house is centrally located adjacent to the N2 highway, Just 11 minutes from the Newlands Rugby Stadium and only 15 minutes from Cape Town International Airport. Connecting business travelers to a vast commercial office complex that houses numerous national and multinational companies, all whilst escaping to a view of beautiful lush gardens. And while the current manor house dates back to approximately 1880, records indicate that the site has been settled since the 1660s.
Contrary to popular belief, the Cape Town public transport system is quite efficient. There are vast options to choose from– from trains to taxis – that allow commuters and travelers alike to navigate, discover and explore every corner of the Mother City.
We are, of course, well aware of the bouts of train delays (or no trains at all), and bus strikes, but knowing the ins and outs of public transport in Cape Town can save time (sometimes) and money. So have a look at this handy round-up of different transport modes that are available in and around our seaside metropolis.
Whether you’re headed to Waterfront, Camps Bay, CPT Airport, or out on the town, Uber connects you with a reliable ride in minutes. One tap and a car comes directly to you. Your driver knows exactly where to go. And you can pay with either cash or card.
Good to know: Uber tariffs fluctuate based on the time of day, so to best maximise affordable tariffs, commuters should be mindful of their time of travel.
Meter Taxis/ Cabs
While these aren’t necessarily the most economical transport alternative, they do come in handy when there is no taxi/bus/train in sight, or if commuters need to get to somewhere that isn’t a common public transport route. Costs differ from cab company to cab company, but the base range is R10 per kilometre, with between R30 and R40 being the minimum fee.
Good to know: To make sure that you know how much your trip is really worth, make sure that you have an idea of the kilometres of your route so that you don’t overpay. It’s also always good to have a trusted cab number already saved on your phone for ease of access.
Wherever you are in Cape Town, on a day out on the beach at Camps Bay or on a shopping spree at one of Africa’s biggest malls, Canal Walk Shopping Centre, always count on Taxify for a great ride in minutes!
