Leana & Ernest embarked on their own cycle tour from Cape Town to Bloemfontein. Their route was from Cape Town to Kleinmond, Hermanus, Gansbaai, Bredasdorp, Swellendam, Heidelberg, Stilbaai, Mossel Bay, Wilderness, Knysna, Keurboomstrand, Storms River Village, Jeffreys Bay, Colchester, Peterson, Middleton, Cradock, Hofmeyr, Steynsburg, Burgersdorp, Aliwal North, Zastron, Mohale's Hoek, Wepener, Dewetsdorp and Bloemfontein.

They encountered ferocious headwinds, tailwinds, sore backsides, the friendliness of Heidelberg (a stranger offered them accommodation at her holiday home in Struisbaai), a petrol attendant who thought the pipes they were sucking on was their oxygen, rain, thunder, lightning, an idyllic campsite in Zastron and the vibiness of Lesotho.

As you can see Mango Airlines is usually cheaper (although SA Express offer more legroom), but not always. Of course these prices listed below are not available anymore, they are merely for historical reference and interest.
