Cheap Flights from Hoedspruit to Cape Town

After seeing the wildlife in the Kruger you may want to fly from Hoedspruit to Cape Town to join the humanlife on its white, sandy beaches. There are not a lot of choices, as only SA Express operates flights on the route. The alternative of driving is not particularly attractive, as it would take at least 19 hours to cover the 1853km. A compromise is to drive to Johannesburg and then fly to Cape Town, as the Joburg to CPT flights are far cheaper than from HDS to CPT.
