Getting To & Through South Africa 2021

 Australian Cricket Tours - Getting T & Through South Africa, The Blue Train Leaving Cape Town At Dusk, With Table Mountain In The Background

GETTING THERE

Getting to South Africa is as straight-forward and common as jetting between Melbourne and Sydney, just not as quick. Qantas fly direct Sydney to Jo'burg, and South African Airways Perth to Jo'burg, whilst every major SE Asian, Middle Eastern and European Airline fly to Jo'burg and / or Cape Town via their respective hubs. You are not short of choice, with the longer routes usually cheaper whilst offering more valuable arimiles and status credits if you are indeed a points chaser. Research all options below:

Once you are in South Africa getting about is an absolute doddle. Planes. Trains. Buses. Rentals. Affordable. Plentiful. Everywhere.

SOUTH AFRICAN RAILWAYS

This is not the most convenient means to reach the cricket. All trains go to/from Johannesburg and only operate twice weekly to Cape Town and Durban, and thrice weekly to Port Elizabeth and East London. There is no coastal train from Durban to Cape Town, sadly. If the frequency isn't inconvenient enough, the 570km 6hour drive (40mins flight) from Jo'burg to Durban (for example) is a painstaking 18.5hours by train. #WeLoveAirmiles
