*This is not an offer, but merely a snapshot of cheapest airfares as we saw them. There was very limited availability (don't expect it to be on every date, it was the cheapest we could find) when we checked & prices may have increased already. Click through the link on the price to check whether the price is still available. Remember to change class once page has loaded to check prices for Premium Economy and Business Class. For Direct Fligth prices, select direct flights once page has loaded.

Canal Walk in Cape Town have set up a Snow World; a magical snow environment at -5 degrees...and there is no need to post a letter to the North Pole… you can meet Santa in his Ice Cave and also have your picture taken. Open from 10am to 10pm until the 6th January (not 25 December).

The Bottom Line: The Minister of Public Enterprises has appointed Mr Vuyisile Kona as Acting CEO of South African Airways (Kona was previously Executive Chairperson) and Ms Duduzile Myeni as Acting Chairperson: "One of the critical responsibility that the Acting Chairperson will be expected to embark upon is to reinforce leadership stability at SAA and initiate a robust recruitment process for the appointment of the new CEO to ensure continuity in the airlines business operations."
