Nice find, at least based on the mileage earnings...
But before everyone gets too excited, this is in premium economy, and although it's CX (so it's a "good" premium economy) it's on two of their longest flights... I hope stopovers are allowed on the fare rules because it will be rough otherwise !

PS-- You can route this to CPT as well, for $10 more. 6168 EQDs and 46,260 EQMs.

I cant find formal stopovers, but there are options that include over 12 hrs in HK each way.

From a redeemable mileage standpoint, an Executive Platinum will earn 67,848 miles on the Cape Town routing. Assuming each mile is worth 1.5 cents, that leaves a net cost of $611.28 for this itinerary.
