A peculiarity of the Mango Airlines pricing system is that occassionaly Mango Plus is cheaper than standard Mango prices (it's well documented in our tips for cheap flights). For instance, we looked at Johannesburg to Cape Town flight prices on 2 April (start of the Easter weekend), and Mango Plus costs R39 less than standard Mango and you get more - flexibility to change, entry into BIDAir Services Airport lounges, drinks and meal onboard the flight to the value of R40, an extra 10kg allowance for checked in luggage and 10% executive parking discount at Johannesburg.

Long Street awesomeness

Brittan and her buddy did a tour of some major tourist attractions in Cape Town, after settling into Long Street Backpackers - "Long Street was definitely the place to be, as it is the toursity central of Cape Town, meaning that things are open late, there is tons of food, and the street is completely lit up all night making it the safest street in town". They hiked up Table Mountain, saw the penguins, Cape Point, the wine route and practised their bartering with street vendors.
