Budget Travel offers its customers a one-stop portal for booking inexpensive flights and vacation packages to South Africa because we are aware that everyone appreciates quick and affordable travel arrangements.

Cheapest Days to Fly to South Africa

The best time to find cheap tickets to South Africa is likely in January, February, March, May, June, and September till Mid-October & November. The wet season is expected to stop a flock of tourists in December. Otherwise, with fewer tourists visiting the country during June, this is the best time to look for the best deals on top-notch hotels and accommodations. Temperature extremes are also deemed unsuitable for touring the country's exotic tourist attractions. Prospective visitors are discouraged from going on mountaineering adventures because the temperature is expected to drop below zero. For more information, you may contact our travel experts.

Direct Flights to South Africa

Depending on the airports you choose for your departure and arrival, direct flights to South Africa typically last 12 hours. In exactly 11 hours, if you take a direct flight from London Heathrow to Johannesburg, you will land at Tambo International Airport (JNB). Check the length of your stopovers before you travel because many flights are indirect. The average flight time for airlines with stopovers to Johannesburg is 13 to 14 hours, except Emirates, which takes 16 to 17 hours to get there. A direct flight to South Africa may cost a little extra, but it will save you a lot more time if you are short on vacation. Virgin Atlantic will be your prime choice if you want to travel on a direct flight to South Africa. British Airways also provides direct flights from the UK to South Africa for the same length of time.

International Airports in South Africa

There are ten international airports in South Africa, and flights from the UK can land at each. However, Johannesburg is the most affordable entry point, with Cape Town not far behind.
