Costly flights from DUR to CPT

19 Sep 2008 flights
on 23 Aug 2008

There's nothing cheap about the flight prices from DUR to CPT on the 19th September. BA (British Airways), Kulula.com and 1time Airline all recorded their highest prices we have ever seen on this route - only the state-owned carriers (Mango Airlines and SAA) kept prices down somewhat. The cheapest flight surveyed was Mango Airlines flight JE387 (costing R899), which is scheduled to leave DUR at 2115 (the price reduces to R814.90 if you type Edgars Club card promotional code EDG010 in - you can get discounts fares with Mango & Edgars).

Rita shares a few clickies of her field trip to the Hogsback Mountains - which is known as being the area that inspired Tolkein with ideas for his book, The Lord of the Rings. She stayed at the "Away with the Fairies" backpacker lodge, which she also discovered was one of the liveliest places in town (see photo on the right). Rita flew from Port Elizabeth to Cape Town with 1time airline, which she described as being "surprisingly good". In Cape Town she visited the Kirstenbosch botanical gardens.
