South Africa Travel Online

The last survey done on the Cape Town to Durban route unusually showed the premium service of Mango Plus as the cheapest. In this survey, Mango economy airfares have come back on top as the cheapest from Cape Town to Durban. Shosholoza Meyl displayed the cheapest overland prices, but the journey is long and could put some people off this option as passengers have to take two trains, Cape Town to Johannesburg and then Johannesburg to Durban. Be sure to check Car Trawler when looking to hire a vehicle in Durban.

The Playhouse in Durban will host the 16th SA Women's Arts Festival from the 4th - 11 August 2012. The festival is set to feature poetry, music, comedy and drama representing the impact South African women make in others' lives. Tickets can be booked at Computicket or by calling The Playhouse on 031 369 9540.
