Booking flights is straightforward and whilst we can't book your flights, we'll happily help you with some advice.
BA , South African Airways and Virgin all fly direct from Heathrow to Cape Town where you can begin your Garden Route journey. The best starting place is British Airways as their website is the easiest to navigate. You can see how to save hundreds of pounds just by changing a date by one or two days. For this reason we don't have a fixed "change over" day and will try to fit in with your flights. Once you have an idea of price from BA, shop around and you may be able to reduce costs with SAA or Virgin.
Discount flight specialists sometimes offer cheaper indirect flights, although the savings are usually small, and our advice would be to pay a few pounds more for a direct flight - one of the beauties of South Africa is that while the flight is long haul, flights to Cape Town have a civilised evening take off and land just as Africa is waking up to a new day.
Once you arrive in Cape Town you have the option of taking internal flights, which offer fantastic value for money - try www.kulula.com You could drive to your Garden Route destination for your holiday then travel to Port Elizabeth for the Game Parks and then fly back to Cape Town for your return flight home.
