Cape Town. So much to see & do with the added bonus that the spring flowers will be in bloom. This is a very special time of the year & there won't be many other tourists around.

Definitely Cape Town because it is spring time and then you the cape can be full of flowers and there is so much to do for families. Johannesburg is just an ordinary city offering nothing spectacular.

In Cape Town you can visit the Aquarium (great for kids), visit Table Mountain, for to Robben Island, visit markets, visit the Kirstenbosch botanical garden, etc.

Have Fun!

I agree Cape Town is the place to go. It is a fairly big city but absolutely beautiful. There are other wonder places to visit in South Africa but seen as you are only able to visit the one city I would think Cape Town is a great choice.

Definitely Cape Town, no debate needed.

Johannesburg is a large commercial center and from a tourist perspective more just a departure point for safari trips to the Kruger National park area.

When in Cape Town, you can still do a day trip (long drive though) to the Aquila Game Reserve to see some of the big 5.
