The strong dollar equals savings for people planning a vacation in South Africa. In fact, it’s about 13 percent cheaper than last year.
That’s just one reason you may want to plan that South African Safari you’ve put off because you couldn’t afford it. The other is the fact that flights from New York to Cape Town are also significantly down – by 24 percent.
Flights to Cape Town
Cape Town is a popular destination with azure waters stretching along white sandy beaches, and Table Mountain as a backdrop.
If you shop for flights, you can find round trip tickets for around $800. For the best deal, check fare sales using the Hopper app and you may be able to save about 40 percent overall.
Cape Town Safaris
Cape Town Safaris offers several safari packages and other fun ways to experience the area. Aside from your safari plans, try Table Mountain Hiking, see Cape Point on bicycles, visit the Inverdoorn Game Reserve, or enjoy the taste of the Full Segway Spier Wine Farm.
Cape Town Safaris offers a wide range of tour packages and accommodations, which makes it possible to tailor-make your holiday to make the most of your stay. If you’re unsure of the safari experience for you, here are a few of the most popular:
- Kruger Wildlife Experience Standard
- Cape Nature Garden Route
- Highlights of South Africa – Standard Package
How Long Will Prices Stay Low?
It’s hard to predict with absolute accuracy how long prices will offer such a value, but the experts predict that they are likely to stay low until the end of the year. That means, along with saving on the front end of your trip, your dollar will go further once you arrive at your destination.
However, for that reason travel may pick up. If that happens, it could boost hotel and airline ticket prices. So book now to save now and enjoy that safari experience you’ve dreamed of while it is most affordable.
