I am sure it is. I have not been to Dubai but have many friends who have abd who have homes there. They say Dubai is great for shopping and I imagine a desert trip would also be great.

There seems to be more to do in Cape Town, and depending on what time of year you would visit Dubai, we certainly don't have their heat problems.

Perhaps 1 week in Dubai and 2 in the Cape

Happy planning

I have been to Cape Town for two weeks and I loved it...but even two weeks not enough to see and do everything on offer. It is amazing and beautiful..So much so I going in April to get married and we will have three weeks in Cape Town, surrounding area and travel along the Garden Route. I would recommend you do Cape Town and leave Dubai for another trip. You will not be disappointed.

Dubai is not worth visiting, except for the shopping. Had a short stopover a few years before the building boom and even then it was starting to resemble a building site. Bought some good gold though.

As a holiday destination I would give it a miss. Much more to do and see in South Africa.

Best wishes

Its possible and worthwhile.

We have done Dubai and Mauritius previously.

Alternatively you can so a multi-centre SA trip such as Cape Town, Durban and Sun city.
