South Africa Travel Online

Take advantage of the long weekend that falls over the Easter weekend, with a trip to Cape Town for the Two Oceans Marathon. We had a look at the travel prices from Johannesburg to Cape Town for the long weekend, and found that South African Airways offered the cheapest flight to Cape Town on Good Friday. This is very unusual for this popular route which normally sees the low cost airlines taking first place in terms of affordable flight prices. Shosholoza Meyl's tourist class tickets were sold out on this route for the long weekend, with passengers needing to opt for the economy class tickets instead. The cheapest one way bus prices we found were offered by City to City. Please note that all prices will change.

Events in Cape Town

The Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon will take place on the 19th of April 2014 starting and ending in the southern suburbs of Cape Town. Two events will be held on the day, the ultra marathon of 56kms and the half marathon of 21.1kms. Thousands of runners take part in the race, known as the world's most beautiful marathon, each year.
