Why It's a Deal A recent search on Kayak showed that the lowest round-trip airfare between New York City and Cape Town starts from $1,233 with taxes for travel in mid-September (South African). Add to that $617 per person, including tax, for six nights at Protea Hotel President, and you'd be paying $1,850 for just the airfare and accommodations. For $6 less than that, this package covers the flight, six nights' accommodations, six meals, a winery tour, all transfers, and all taxes and fees.
More Several additional activities are available, including a Cape Peninsula tour for $93 per person and a half-day Robben Island tour for $55 per person. Hotel upgrades are available. Extend your stay at the Protea Hotel President for $110 per person per night.
