There's so much to see that your itinerary is going to be a packed one. While in the Cape, take the opportunity to hire a car and visit the famous vineyards of Stellenbosch, nestled under beautiful mountains. Nearby are the warm waters of False Bay, and the unspoilt beaches of The Strand. Remember that South African Airways flights can transport you anywhere you choose within South Africa, so should you want to visit fascinating Bloemfontein, in the centre of the country, that's easily done.

One of the must-do journeys in South Africa is a drive up the Garden Route, beginning in Cape Town, and using South African Airways, this couldn't be easier. The excellent local roads sweep through the mountains and allow for many personal diversions. Stop off along the way at a small town such as Barrydale, a little off the beaten track, for a real flavour of local hospitality in boutique lodgings. Jeffreys Bay is famous worldwide for its surfing, and that's on your journey too. There are flights from Port Elizabeth, your destination, and a place that lives up to its local reputation as being "the friendly city". When you choose flights to South Africa all of the sights of this great country are at your fingertips.
