Durban Takes On Cape Town
Move on over Cape Town, as Durban is expected to be basking in the limelight, and not just the sunshine (this beachside urban mecca is sunny year round), in 2019. British Airways’ new direct service between Durban and London Heathrow will start on 29 October 2018, which is great news for those wishing to explore South Africa’s self-confessed playground. Traditionally Durban tends to be overshadowed by Cape Town, but its melting pot of cultures and cuisines, stunning beaches and friendly people, make it a must-see city – the up and coming metropolis a new rival for the more well-known Mother City.
Durban features on several of our 2019 overland tours and our NEW 3-day Durban City Stay showcases the hip city-scape. Contact us for more information & full dossiers…
Malawi Will Soon Be Easier & Cheaper To Visit
Malawi plans to cut the cost of tourist visas and roll out a tourist visa application process online in a bid to boost tourism. The tourist visa fee is expected to be reduced from $75 to $50, which is in line with Zambia, Zimbabwe and Tanzania. The government also announced that, by the end of November, Malawi would have a tourist e-visa service, enabling tourists to apply for visas and, where applicable, pay for the visa online.
