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! Krystina flew via Ethiopia and Togo landing in Bamako. "In Mali, we found not only mud homes, but ones that were multi-storied creating an ancient town of varying building heights." Her adventures included: "Bush taxis almost every day, a car accident with a visit to PCMO (Peace Corps Medical Officer) Burkina, five-hour long hikes beneath the beating African sun, worm and rash outbreaks, monkey attacks, and a brief runaway stint from the Togolese border are just the realities of backpacking West Africa. Luckily, we’ve mastered the fine art of negotiation; I saved us from paying 5.000CFA in Mopti, Mali for a “mandatory” visa extension fee and let’s just say that Lindsey Dattels has a future immigration officer husband waiting for her in the Contonou airport who allowed us to board the plane back to Cameroon."

The Bottom Line: "South Africa follows Europe to a large extent — our biggest trading partner is Europe so if they cough we also get a bit of a cold. We’ve seen with what’s been happening there, in South Africa especially we are losing a lot of tourists. We are still growing — SA Express is still growing — but if you look at Acsa (Airports Company South Africa) statistics, they are bordering on 0% growth because what’s happening in the world is affecting us." Inati Ntshange, the Chief Executive of SA Express, as quoted in Business Day.
