Kulula is cheapest to Cape Town

South Africa Travel Online

The survey for this week shows an increase in flight and overland prices compared to our last survey on this route. The increase might have something to do with school holidays starting on the 23rd March in the Eastern Cape, KwaZulu-Natal, Northern Cape and Western Cape. If you want to visit your family or friends over this time, I would suggest booking a flight as soon as possible as prices are only going to increase as availability decreases. Mango Airline currently has no flights after 17h35 for Friday 23rd March on this route. Shosholoza Meyl still has the cheapest overland fare for R260 economy class.

Our survey below compares prices of one-way flights, coach trips and train trips from Johannesburg to Cape Town on Friday the 10th of February, leaving Johannesburg after 18h19 but before 20h36. Please note that the prices below are subject to change and that they cannot be guaranteed by us.
