Overview

Despite South Africa’s anguished past, the country that occupies the southern tip of Africa has re-invented itself along the lines of a modern destination featuring a mixture of out-of-this-world scenery with a vibrant cultural heritage that combine to create an unforgettable experience.

Many visitors arriving on cheap flights to South Africa head for Cape Town, the oldest city in southern Africa. Its trendy restaurants and a hopping nightlife scene nestle comfortably in the beautiful coastal setting. Further north lies Johannesburg, a vibrant and edgy city, that many travellers see en route to Kruger Park, the world’s biggest and probably best-known wildlife reserve.

Many of the towns on South Africa’s long coast along both the Indian and Atlantic oceans also attract many visitors. Durban, located in KwaZulu-Natal province, features the best surfing beaches in the country while Port Elizabeth and its café culture attracts many travellers heading for the Garden Route. This area along the country’s coast boasts a combination of forests, beaches and lagoons that are one of South Africa’s most popular destinations.

South Africa climate

South Africa is generally sunny and hot in the summer, which lasts from December to April. The winter is mild. The country is large and has many different climates. The Cape is cold and wet in the winter, with snow falling in the mountains. Northern areas get regular thunderstorms on summer evenings, while winters are warm by day and cold at night. 

South Africa airport overview

The spacious and attractive Durban King Shaka International Airport, known also as La Mercy Airport, was built in preparation for the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa. Replacing the cramped Durban International Airport, the facility is large and modern, with state-of-the-art facilities that rival higher-traffic destinations Cape Town and Johannesburg for convenience. Named for the famous Zulu king of the 19th century, the architecture of the airport contains hints at the region’s culture, and eagle-eyed passengers will find many traditional Zulu shields.

Handling a little more than half of its 7.5 million passenger capacity, the airport rarely feels crowded. This is partly due to the limited number of destinations available on direct flights to Durban King Shaka Airport. Air traffic is primarily focused on local flights to Johannesburg, Cape Town, Port Elizabeth, George and East London. Most international flights to Durban International Airport connect via Johannesburg, but there are flights available to Mauritius, Maputo and Dubai.

The main annoyance of the airport is not the service or facilities, but its remote location 22 miles (35km) north of Durban. The current total lack of public transport options make getting into town an expensive prospect if you don’t have someone to pick you up.
