So i'm going to SA but I will be in Stellenbos, what's the most efficient way to get to Cape town from stellenbosh? Is the train a safe option? I heard that a private taxi is 340 rand, does that sound correct?

Thanks

Not sure about how the train is in Cape Town. Most I know of the public transport down there is that the MyCiti buses aren't bad apparently. R340 for a private taxi sounds about right.

The train is fine, just make sure you get a first class ticket (it's like... US$0.50 more). R340 for a private cab from Stellenbosch sounds right to me, but the train will be more like R20.

MyCiti is fantastic if it goes where you need it. The Golden Arrow buses are just fine too, you can just go up to the counter at the central bus station and they'll tell you what to do. Private cabs within the city are very affordable and usually the fastest and safest way to get around. There are reputable companies companies that charge as little as R9-10/km (~$1/mi).
