The airport

Most travellers take cheap flights to Johannesburg International Airport. The flight time from London is around 11 hours. The airport is well connected to the rest of the country with transport links by bus, taxi or coach. Or pre–arrange car rental with Opodo.

While en–route to your destination, it’s easy to understand signs, documents and language as English is widely spoken. But, it is only one of the 11 official languages of South Africa.

Food and drink

Try some others out and start your language odyssey with a few culinary expressions. At least you’ll be well fed. You could order some bredie, a delicious tomato–based stew or eat traditional country–style food called boerekos. Make sure you wash those rich and hearty flavours with some wonderful Cape wines.

After dinner, retreat for your night’s sleep under the South African stars. Whether you awake to embark on a journey to absorb the stunning scenery of the garden route, to see spectacular animal sights on safari, or stroll around the boutiques of one of South Africa’s cosmopolitan cities is up to you.
