JNB to New York from R6345*

(These flight specials are now SOLD OUT)

It's not often that a flight to New York is cheaper than a flight to to London, so when we saw this we were left with no choice but to tell you about this. *Obviously, flight prices are not something we have any control over, so the price could change at any time (it may already have).

The specific date we saw this price was: Leave JNB on 28 Jan, return from JFK on 4th Feb (click the link to see if it's still available).

Another variant for a longer stay we spotted was to leave JNB on 28 Jan, but return from New York on the 2nd March (this was R6753* when we checked, but navigate to the link to see whether it's still available).

London flight prices
Hopefully we'll be back to exploring London's magical streets soon! South Africa is currently on the UK's Red List, which means only British nationals are allowed to travel from South Africa to the UK and then they have to complete 10 days quarantine in a hotel. There are no direct flights connecting South Africa to the UK currently.

The Purple shall rule! Tom flew from Cape Town to Johannesburg to Istanbul, with Turkish Airlines: "Turkish Airways was recently awarded Europe's best airline award and my flight from Cape Town to Istanbul proved that the award was well deserved. The best seat of the trip, incredible catering and just a great on-board experience for the 11 or so hour flight... I then kept on walking in the 91 degree weather, sweating like a pig, although in this Muslim country I don't know if they use that expression. I saw a few of the familiar sights, the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, etc. and then headed down to the edge of the Bosphorus where a bunch of locals were enjoying the sun and diving off the edge of the breakwater into the sea, which was not too clean. I was tempted, but I didn't want to spend the last three days of the trip with a middle eastern infection so I just did some sunbathing which was 99.9% done by men. There were 2 women that I saw on the rocks or on the breakwater... out of about 1,000 men."

The Bottom Line: "The hotel industry in South Africa is still experiencing the dual impact of depressed demand and over supply although some recovery has been achieved. Overall industry occupancies have improved to 58% (2011:54%) for the 6 months ended 30 September 2012 as per STR Global. Trading for the South African hotels division for the 6 months has been more buoyant recording a system wide revpar RevPar growth of 10.7% on the prior period due mainly to an increase in occupancies to 63% (2011:50%). Average room rates remain constrained with limited yielding opportunities & increased by 4% to R791." Tsogo Sun interim report to September 2012
