Travel to South Africa

Take a look at the South Africa map, and you can figure out that the best option in regard to how to go to South Africa is via boarding a flight. South Africa has quite a few international airports, but the two most frequented ones with India to South Africa flights are O. R. Tambo International Airport (serving Johannesburg) and Cape Town International Airport. There used to be a direct Mumbai to South Africa flight, which flew directly from Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport to O. R. Tambo directly, operated by South Africa Airways. But the route has been cancelled since 2015 owing to losses and has ever since been redirected via Abu Dhabi. But there are enough connecting flights from all the major cities of India to important South African cities like Jo’burg, Cape Town, Durban, Pretoria, Port Elizabeth and Bloemfontein.

How to reach South Africa from India

India to South Africa distance is a staggering 8250 km, and although it is constantly connected by land all the way through the extent of Africa continent and Middle-East, the distance is simply way too much to travel. Nobody even considers doing that, given one has to cross the largest desert of the world – Sahara, by road, which is near impossible. Besides that, one can also choose to hop on a journey via waterway cruises that are available from cities of Europe, but not directly from India.

Here is our guide in apropos of how to reach South Africa from India using airways, roads, and waterways.

By Air

Some of the prominent airlines that fly India to South Africa flight distance are British Airways, Qatar Airways, Emirates, Etihad, Ethiopian Airlines, Turkish Airlines, Cathay Pacific, Singapore Airlines, KLM and more. The fastest flight duration is Mumbai to South Africa, which takes 10 hours 40 minutes by Jet Airways-Air Seychelles via Seychelles airport. The next best India to South Africa flight duration is by Ethiopian Airlines via Addis Ababa and Kenya Airways via Nairobi, both of which take 11 hours 45-50 minutes. From Delhi to South Africa, the best flight is by Emirates via Dubai, in 13 hours 45 minutes. On average, Ethiopian Airlines have the best connecting flights from any India city to South African city via Addis Ababa Airport.

By Sea

There are luxury cruises from cities of Europe like the UK and Germany to South Africa’s ports like Cape Town, Durban and Port Elizabeth, which take around two months. But this trip is less of a means of transport than a vacation in itself on the vast Atlantic, with stops at the South African cities for day tours.

    • Trip to Tamil Nadu

      No testimonial to be given .. My last day AUgust 17th i had to spend whole 8 hrs at airport becasue the oversmart driver brought me to madhurai way to early from Rameshwaram without doing 3 site seeing places.... so on 17th august i only had a local temple to see and then nothing else to do before my flight. so i had to spend 8 hrs in airport. I requested the driver to take me around some local shops to do some shopping , he turned a dead ear. the entire trip was spoil by that last day. Madhurai was the home for the driver and that is why he hurried and brought us there. If i have to spend time arguing with driver on a vacation then how can i relax in vacation Honestly , the driver cant just do their way of sight seeing .. whatever was mentioned and promised in rameshwaram was not fully delivered. I am sooo unhappy cause i had checked with the customize.com lady and she suggested i book late evening flight so either plz improve the professionalism of drivers or else its not so much fun that i keep arguing with a driver who does not want to understand you

      We have very nice trip with Lee Vacations and Travel Triangle. Miss Ramya has made proper arrangement of Resorts and Hotels, due to heavy rain we missed some places but our driver was experienced so we were managed to cover most of the places.

    • Trip to Mauritius

      Booked Family trip (2 Adult+1 infant)Mauritius trip with Timeless Trips Private Limited thru travel Triangle, Which I will not recommend to anyone. Because I felt cheated at every single day compare to other travel company service. They handover our trip to SEASIDE Holidays Mauritius which having 1 star ratings and Be-aware tag line(Wow). 1. On very first day of arrival they showed their poor service. Local GSM sim card was included in my package but it was missing in welcome kit. So I contacted Sahil Rajput (Post sales guy) to sort it out this situation. he asked some time to resolve this and replied me as "its system miss. and he will check and update me". After waiting whole 2 days he never replied me until unless I asked him again. This time his answer was " I checked with reservation for this but due to system miss it can't be arranged. Also it was a complimentary service". I told him there was not a single word mentioned about Complimentary in my Itinerary. Finally I paid around 3000 rs for my India Vodafone sim for in case of emergency(Because I was traveling with infant). I asked refund but again they can't refund because it was complimentary service which I totally disagree because same tour operator gave sim card those booked same trip via MMT. This is showing there poor service. 2. One second day they took us to Île aux Cerfs As usual tour operator took us to island for water sports and gave us only 1.30 hr for water sports(consider a long queue because every single MRU visitor come here to do water sports) and 1.00 Hr to visit+ lunch(Lunch only took 1 Hr) which was very less. The island is Beauty of Mauritius and 1.00 hr is way less for enjoying the beauty. They dropped us to hotel at 4.30 pm only. Very short trip. It can be additional 1.30 hour easily but Not for Indian visitors. Because I had a chat with other country people in Hotel and all had very good experience of island. 3. Third day North visit In the beginning of trip Tour operator inform us it will be a shortest trip. Started with Jambo shopping to buy water+daily snacks+baby food+liquor. Then he took us to Port Louis and gave us only 2.30 hrs to lunch/visit and shopping(No local market at all) which was again very very less time for visiting Port Louis. It is capital of MRU and many thing to watch. even he skipped many attraction of Mauritius because they want to drop us back to hotel at 4-4.30pm and send the bus back for Airport pick/drop service. 4. Last day South visit As per tour operator told us it will be a longest tour of MRU. So journey started from Volcano->Ganga Talao->Ship shop+Craft Shop(both are kind of Seaside's commission/cut shop, So expect high prices)->La Vallee Des Couleurs Nature Park(Where a Veg thali cost you more than 5 star buffet meal, One extra glass of water cost is 50 MRU rs. Then they showed a Fake/artificially created 32 color earth and adventure park Where one cheapest ride cost is more then Imagica adventure park fee) They will never took us to Chamarel Which is main beauty of Mauritius where I felt cheated again. Even if you tell them they will never listen and tell us Like that is not worth it. which is a totally lie. I had word with many other group people which been many more places in Mauritius. Please improve your service and don't cheat Indians.

    • Trip to Goa

      Very good tour and travel agency Based on their very positive reviews, we booked 3nights & 4-day from 1st aug to 4th aug-19 GOA tour with travel triangle agent travel surety. Vacanza grand in executive room was booked near calagunte Beach & the rooms were great, felt very spacious. The rooms and bathrooms were really clean and in great condition. Hotel Staff was also very courteous, We had informed travel agent about the food preference as we are pure vegetarians, and it was very well taken care at the hotel, great thanks for that. Anniversary cake was arranged & it was like icing on the cake for joy, my son enjoyed the food at the restaurant. Food was yummy & great at vacanza grand inn. Every day executive from travel triangle / travel surety used to esquire me about the trip, which made us feel special & comfort and give us more confidence on travel triangle/ travel surity. Two days sightseeing trip (North & south Goa ) was arranged by the agent , and it was fantastic . only complaint is the local tour organizer stop for lunch at the bad & unhygienic hotel, which dont have washroom facility, which will very difficult for women travellers, please advice/instruct local acb service agent. I found the service and response of this travel agent Mr,Aman Gupta was excellent. Easily 5-stars. Even my whastapp queries were promptly responded , would love to book again with same agent.

      The travel agent Neha was very helpful. She planned the whole thing and i didn't have to worry about anything. The hotel and cab people were also very helpful and would attend to all my queries and concerns at the earliest. Best memories were with my friends as all things were already taken care of so i didn't have to worry about bookings and cabs and transport.
