South Africa is blessed with some extraordinary natural scenery . There's the wild power of the Cape Coast to the mystery and other-worldy beauty of the Cango Caves. You can hike through the Blyde River Canyon, see the massive trees of the Tsitsikamma Forest, climb Table Mountain for views over Cape Town or relax in the tranquility of Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. All of this is simple when you book flights to South Africa, but there is more on offer than just the majesty of nature:

  • Take the spectacular Flying Dutchman funicular railway out to Cape Point.
  • See the African penguins at Boulders Beach.
  • Head to a Test Match or 20/20 cricket fixture at grounds like the Wanderers or Newlands.
  • See Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela was incarcerated under the Apartheid regime.
  • Try your hand at surfing all along South Africa's southern coast.
One of the great attractions of flights to South Africa is the chance to enjoy one of the world's great beach cultures .
