South Africa Travel Online

The whale spotting season in Southern Africa runs from August to November each year so why not head off to the Western Cape's favourite whale watching town, Hermanus, for the Heritage Day weekend. The annual Hermanus Whale Festival will take place from the 20th until the 24th of September 2013, and with Tuesday the 24th of September being a public holiday, this is the perfect opportunity to take a long weekend break. The Enviro-Arts festival will host musicians and perfomers along with the stars of the show, the Southern Right Whales.

JHB to CPT travel prices

In this week's survey, we compared the prices of travel from Johannesburg to Cape Town on the 20th of September 2013. With this day being the start of the school holidays, as well as the Friday before the Heritage Day public holiday, the flight prices have shown a 197% inflation rate since the survey we did on this route a year ago. A Mango flight from Johannesburg to Cape Town was cheapest at R2311* (*will change). The cheapest land travel options were R360 for a one way train trip with Shosholoza Meyl, and R480 for a one way bus trip with City to City. Please note that all prices will change. For those who travel to Cape Town on this weekend and wish to visit the Hermanus Whale Festival, be sure to check Car Trawler's car rental rates to drive yourself to the festival.
