Deal to South Africa
If you book right away, you may be able to get an amazing deal for travel to South Africa from New York. The Website www.airfarewatchdog.com/cheap-flights/ is advertising a round trip flight on South African Airways (www.flysaa.com) for as low as $644. You must book by Monday, November 30, leave in February 2016 and return by the end of March 2016.
This is an extremely low price, less than the cost of many flights within North America. And South Africa is a country well worth visiting, with a great variety of scenery, population and wildlife and a fascinating history. From the stormy Cape of Good Hope at its southern tip to the wonders of Kruger National Park and the vibrancy of Soweto, a township outside of Johannesburg, it offers something for virtually every traveller.
I was thrilled by my single trip there in 1994, and would love to return. I flew on South African Airways, and while it is a long flight (14 hours then,) it is well worth it. At that time we made a re-fuelling stop on the return in the Cape Verde Islands, so I got a glimpse of those mysterious islands too. It was night and difficult to see much, but better than nothing.
