South Africa Travel Online

Schools across the country break up on the 22nd June for their June/July school holidays. We can expect an increase in price for flights and overland trips on the Cape Town to Durban route as well as any others. Unusually, Mango Plus is offering the cheapest flight on this route for R1,289 so you can fly with the extra benefits offered. Some of the flights on this route are already sold out and if you are planning a holiday in Durban you will need to book ASAP. The car rentals for Durban are still reasonably priced considering the overall price increases.

If you are quite the sailing enthusiast or just enjoy a day out on the boat, head down to Durban Marina for the International Boat & Leisure Show. The event is from the 22nd to the 24th June and the gates are open from 09h00 to 17h00.
