Situated on the southern tip of Africa lies the port of Cape Town, which serves a host of commercial and non-commercial marine traffic. It is the preferred port of call for visiting yachts and the city of Cape Town was voted “best city in the world” again by the readers through Telegraph Awards for 2019.

Cape Town and Durban are regular ports of call for traffic between east and west and offer all major services such as docking, repair yards, dry docks, bunkering and provisioning. Cape Town International, Johannesburg’s OR Tambo and Durban’s King Shaka airports play host to most of the international airlines which allows for easy access for crew transfers worldwide.
