Travelling is more than experiencing a place we’re visiting. It’s about connecting with new people, exploring new cultures, and meeting new friends. Travel is a mixture of emotions and experiences. It can be an adventure, a learning opportunity, or both. It motivates you to live more than your daily routine. It can get you out of the city on a date with your lover or friends. Travelling will change how you see the world and open its doors to new opportunities.

There are many reasons why people go on vacation to a different place. Some choose to escape everyday life and stress, while others do it for fun and relaxation. But whatever your reason is, one thing remains true: you want to travel.

 

Traveling after the Pandemic- Covid 19

The Pandemic has transformed the world of travel. At the peak of the Pandemic, traveling ceased as International borders closed and canceled flights. Global Tourism Organization stated that 100% of destinations implemented travel restrictions. 

Tourism Council and World Travel, established various protocols for Airlines, shops, and hotels. Now in traveling, there is a must-use of masks. Infrared and thermal scanners are now installed at different places. 

Today, many countries are emerging from lockdown. And the world’s largest industry which accounts for almost 10% of world GDP, is now looking towards the new normal. It’s a welcome sight to see many travelers dreaming about beaches and mountains again as they were stuck in their homes for months.

Travel Restrictions in South Africa eased.

In South Africa, travel is opening up after Covid-19. If a family has traveled to one of the three African countries where the outbreak was most severe or at risk. So, they must still be careful and stay healthy while traveling. There is no limit on how many travelers can visit other countries as long as they put into effect that:

  1. Weigh your luggage
  2. Wash your hands
  3. Cover your mouth while coughing
  4. Don’t touch your face
  5. Call ahead of time for pickup
  6. Stay away from crowds.

Why Visit Cape Town

One of the most multicultural capital in the world is colourful Cape Town. Situated on South Africa’s Cape Peninsula, the city is the second largest in the country. Spectacular mountains are tumbling towards the sea where the Atlantic and Indian oceans meet. In Cape Town, there are a variety of things we can explore.

Travel to Cape of Good Hope

We have a couple of recommendations if you are looking for a great memorable day trip. The first is to drive from Cape Town to the Cape of Good Hope.
