Hello Ziners, Dick,

I studied in Cape Town for 3 years in the 1980s, and have visited several times in the past decade as my parents now live there. I love Cape Town. It has some stunningly beautiful areas, and numerous oppertunities for the "Wow factor".

Safety is very dependent on where you stay and what you do. The tourist areas tend to be safe, but as with any city, there are areas that it is best to avoid. Are you going to be on an arranged tour, or do you have freedom to make your own way ?

My top tip for Cape Town is always "if Table Mountain is free of cloud at the moment you arrive in the city, then go to the top immediately, you may not get another chance"

I hope you enjoy your trip, if you have any more questions about CT, I will do my best to answer them.
