1time and Mango were joint cheapest from CPT to DUR (even though Mango were the most expensive they've been since our 23 May 2009 flight survey, when the British and Irish Lions were touring South Africa). And forget flying with Kulula - they're sold out! Below we sampled prices of one-way flights, coach trips and train trips from Cape Town to Durban, leaving Cape Town between 13h44 and 20h31 on Friday the 2nd of September 2011. Please note that all prices below were valid at the time of capture, but that they cannot be guaranteed by us and are subject to availability.
