Tickets cost around R10 to R15 for a one-way journey.

Vehicle hire

If you’re over 25 and have an international driver’s license, hiring a car in the Mother City is easy. There’s a list of rental agencies as long as your arm, but the most reputable of these remain Avis (021 424 1177/086 102 1111) and Hertz (021 935 4800).

The rates are generally worked out according to the amount of kilometres travelled.

Trains

The Cape Town railway service, Metrorail (0800 656 463/www.capemetrorail.co.za), isn’t exactly predictable, with local trains being bang on time one day and hopelessly delayed the next, so relying on this mode of transport if you want to be punctual isn’t a good idea.

Cultural attractions

Historic and cultural attractions in the city centre including the Bo-Kaap, District Six Museum and the Company Gardens.
