Cape Town

What is your home city/country? How long is the trip to post from there, with what connections?

United States -- Washington, D.C. Total travel time is about 24 hours, via either Dakar or Accra (you don't deplane, just sit for an hour, although some passengers will get off and others get on) and Johannesburg. - Oct 1, 2017
The Southeastern U.S. Cape Town is very far from the U.S., a fact that is obvious to anyone looking at a map; however, the reality of it becomes clear in the flight times and more importantly the expense of flights. Transit consists of two reasonably long flights - a hop to Europe and then 10 hours down to Cape Town - or a very long flight to Jo'burg- Atlanta to Jo'burg was my route - followed by a connection to Cape Town. All of this costs a lot of money as your friends and relatives will discover when they want to come visit. - May 13, 2014
DC. There are a couple of flight options, but our family normally does DC-Jo'burg-Cape Town. - Aug 26, 2013
