In general, it is not a good idea to try to make a straight translation from
one language to another, especially between a very dynamic one like Python
to a very static one like C++ . You might be able to do a straight
translation of some of the design, but soon you would find yourself working
against the language and missing out on its good features.
I think you'd be better off starting from scratch. (Or maybe not really from
scratch; having done a working version of the program once and maybe having
working tests is worth a lot.)
 You might find C++ templates useful, though.
