Cape Town, South Africa
Stunning scenery, hot temperatures, and hip nightlife await you in Cape Town. South Africa's second largest city is a nature-lover's dream destination, too, from the incredible views and hikes around Table Mountain to the whales in the ocean.
January is Summer in South Africa, with 11 hours of sunshine and maximum temperatures of 27 degrees Celsius on average. There's hardly any rainfall either, with an average of 8 mm throughout January.
Even though it takes around 11.5 hours to fly from the UK to Cape Town, the time difference is only two hours, meaning you'll be able to avoid jet lag, too.
