IS IT POSSIBLE TO TRAVEL TO CAPE TOWN NOW?
Yes! South Africa (Cape Town) is fully open for travelers. The City has established a set of safety protocols for ensuring people adhere to health and safety guidelines. All international travelers arriving must provide a valid certificate of a negative COVID-19 test, recognized by the World Health Organization, which was obtained not more than 72 hours before the date of travel.
Cape Town is blessed with mild weather and plenty of open space, so there are many opportunities for outdoor dining, nature adventures & experiences away from crowds.
WHAT ARE THE RULES?
Wearing a mask in public is mandatory. People are also requested to sanitize their hands before entering any public space and maintain social distancing of 6 ft. 
WHAT DO I NEED TO KNOW ABOUT LOCKDOWNS?
South Africa has locked down in various levels of restrictions over the past year in order to contain the spread of the virus.  The country is currently at Alert Level 1.

It is incorrect to call the Omicron variant “South African”. Although the variant was first identified in South Africa through the excellent work of their researchers, there is to date no evidence that it originated in the country, nor is it exclusive to South Africa.

COVID Alert SA is South Africa’s free exposure notification app. It lets people know when they have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.
Everyone in South Africa who has a Bluetooth-enabled smartphone can access this app. COVID Alert SA is entirely anonymous. The app protects your privacy and security at all times. It does not need or store any of your personal information.

IS CAPE TOWN SAFE?
I first visited Capetown back in 2016 and lived there for 6 months. I went back again and lived there for a year and I have been going back ever since. The only time I did not have a chance to visit was at the beginning of the Pandemic. I have never feared for my safety in Capetown.
Cape Town is a major, modern cosmopolitan South African city. As such, it is always advised to exercise the same level of vigilance you would exercise when visiting any major city in the world.
This includes ensuring you follow basic safety tips such as keeping emergency numbers on hand, avoiding carrying large sums of cash and keeping your valuables safe at all times. Cape Town has also been awarded the Safe Travels stamp by the World Travel & Tourism Council for its adherence to internationally-recognized Covid-19 protocols. 
 The destination is frequently cited as among the world’s best holiday destinations and has a high return visitor rate, anyone who visits Capetown once, falls in love with it, and wants to discover it again.
