Private jet to Cape Town: the convenience of a charter flight
Reach Cape Town in comfort and relax: discover the luxury of a charter flight
Cape Town is putting what it learned in 2014, when it was the World Design Capital, to good use in transforming the city and improving the quality of life of its inhabitants.
With the facades of Bo-Kaap's houses and Muizenberg's brightly painted beach cabins, fascinating street art, and numerous Afro-chic guest houses, Cape Town is a very inviting metropolis. But above all, it is a multicultural city, where everyone has a fascinating story to tell.
In this article, we will have a look at:
- The advantages of flying by private jet

The advantages of a charter flight from the UK to Cape Town
Intercontinental flights are always very stressful, as passengers need to be at the airport at least two hours and a half before takeoff to embark luggage and pass the controls.
This means that you will have to wait a lot in a crowded queue with annoyed and impatient people.
With Fast Private Jet instead, you can arrive at the airport just half an hour before departure.
Simple: our staff will lead you to a reserved area, where you will be able to do the controls in total discretion and privacy. Once you have done that, you will wait in the lounge area while the crew will take care of the rest.
But flying by chartered plane doesn't mean only less downtime.
In fact, you can decide to fly with whomever you want: family members, your partner, your colleagues, or even with your boss!
This way, you will have no prying eyes or strangers sitting next to you.
Furthermore, you can enjoy the flight with some extras on board, such as:
- Super relaxing massage
- Beauty treatment
- Super cosy chairs and cinema atmosphere
- Catering services with chef and barman on board
- Luxury suites to have a nap during the flight
- Business set-up to keep working during the flight
- A lot more

Five must-sees of Cape Town you won't regret
1. Table Mountain with a view of Cape Town
Formed some 600 million years ago, the iconic, flat-topped Table Mountain is like a canvas depicting the diverse floral kingdom of the Cape and South Africa.
The mountain is visible from several points in Table Mountain National Park, but a visit to Cape Town is incomplete without climbing to the top.
The most challenging of the many paths from gardens to the summit is the one through Platteklip Gorge: accessible from Tafelberg Rd, the route follows the steepest and most vertical route and takes about two hours and 30 minutes of brisk walking to the top station of the cable car.
The trail is completely exposed to the sun, so set out early in the morning and make sure you have enough water and sunscreen with you.
2. Robben Island
Used as a prison from the early days of the Dutch East India Company until 1996, this island was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site to pay tribute to all those who – like Nelson Mandela – spent long years of imprisonment there in the name of democracy.
This place, one of the must-visits in South Africa, can only be accessed by participating in an organized excursion, which usually takes about four hours, including the trip on the ferry that sails from the Nelson Mandela Gateway on the Waterfront.
We strongly advise you to book online well in advance, as places available for guided tours sell out quickly.
3. City Bowl
In this area, you will be amazed by interesting museums, gardens, and beautiful art deco and Victorian buildings.
In particular, don't miss:
- District Six Museum: a touching museum that reconstructs the memory of the former vibrant, multi-racial neighbourhood wiped out by apartheid and the 60,000 or so people who lived there before the forced evictions of the 1960s and 1970s. Many township tours depart from this neighbourhood to illustrate the history of the laws that restricted freedom of movement in apartheid South Africa
- Company's Garden: built to grow vegetables by the Dutch East India Company, these shady, leafy gardens are a lovely place to indulge in a moment of relaxation.
- Bo-Kaap: this is one of the most photographed neighbourhoods in the city for its picturesque, low-roofed, brightly coloured houses overlooking narrow cobbled streets. In the mid-18th century this district served as a military garrison, while around 1830 it was the scene of the first claims by freed slaves. The most picturesque streets are Chiappini, Rose, and Wale.
4. Cape of Good Hope
Commonly called Cape Point after its most spectacular (but less famous) headland, this part of Table Mountain National Park, covering an area of 77.50 square kilometres, is characterized by an absolutely stunning landscape, with beautiful hiking trails, rich bird life and almost always deserted beaches.
Reservations are required to hike the Cape of Good Hope Trail, a spectacular 33.8-kilometre loop trail.
5. Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden
The beautiful location and the special flora contribute to making these botanical gardens, which cover an area of 52.8 square kilometres, one of the most beautiful green oasis in the world.
Added in 2013 to mark the centenary of the botanical gardens, the popular Tree Canopy Walkway (commonly called Boomslang, after an arboreal snake) is a winding steel and timber walkway that winds above the trees and provides wonderful views.
As you may have read, Cape Town is a splendid tourist destination, with a moving – but still fascinating – story to tell.
Get ready to discover its beauties and reach this destination by charter plane, you won't regret it!
