Transport

Cape Town International Airport is ideally situated just 22km (15.5 miles) from the CBD, which takes no more than 20 minutes (outside of peak traffic, which can take up to one hour).

Unfortunately there are no direct train routes from the airport, therefore the only option is to either hire a car, take a taxi or one of the many shuttle services that operate form the airport.
