Kulula's Lanseria flights still cheaper

Interesting to note that Kulula's flights from Lanseria Airport are still significantly cheaper than from O.R. Tambo International Airport (in fact Kulula's "low-cost" flights from O.R. Tambo are even more expensive than British Airways and SAA's full service flights!).

Mango Flex R899, Normal Price R1106

Amazingly, the Mango Flex tickets are still cheaper than Mango's standard pricing! And, indeed, even Mango Plus.

Mango Flexi is still cheaper

R280 trip with Shosholoza Meyl

The very cheapest method of getting from Johannesburg to Cape Town is still with the Shosholoza Meyl train (R280).

Some record high prices

Unsurprisingly at this time of year, some travel companies' prices are at record highs:

Travel post of the week : Firefly visits Cape Town

Lovely photos taken by Firefly. He flew from Port Elizabeth to Cape Town to take part in a travel workshop, and promptly did the tourist thing himself (courtesy of the fact that he struggled to get a flight back to the friendly city) - taking in Camps Bay, Constantia, Hout Bay and Rhodes Memorial.
