3 April 2018

Forgot about the long weekend coming up soon? No problem! Break free on Freedom Day with one of these awesome local long-weekend breakaways from Flight Centre.

All that glitters in the City of Gold

Hang ten in the Valley of Waves, flirt with Lady Luck at the roulette wheel, play a round of golf or take in a burlesque show at dazzling Sun City. Bring the kids along for an unforgettable family holiday packed with mini golf, crocodile encounters, railroad adventures, kids’ activity camps and so much more. Want to get out of the city for a bit? Head to tranquil Magaliesburg just 20 minutes from Lanseria Airport. Breathe in the fresh country air, go birdwatching, fishing and hose riding, or just sit back and enjoy the view. Gauteng, you beauty!

Kicking back in KZN

From north to south, there’s no denying that sunny Durban has some of the most amazing beaches in the world. Soak up the sun on Durban’s laid-back south coast where sub-tropical gardens, a relaxed family atmosphere and stunning sea views await. Head a little lower to the famous Golden Mile where it’s all happening. From fabulous shopping and delicious dining to long walks on the promenade and irresistibly warm ocean water, you’re in for a treat. Once you’ve worked on your tan, dust off the beach sand and head inland to the rolling Midlands for quaint eateries, luxurious spa treatments and picturesque scenery.

The best in the West(ern Cape)

Sit pretty in the Mother City with 4-star accommodation along the famous Sea Point Promenade. Take a hike up Table Mountain, then reward yourself with a shopping spree and a swanky dinner at the V&A Waterfront. Leave the bustling city behind and head to tranquil Simon’s Town for sweeping False Bay views with the majestic Simon’s Kloof Mountains as your backdrop. Experience the ultimate Cape Whale Coast experience in Hermanus where wine tasting, exciting outdoor adventures and vibey restaurants are around every corner. Or take a scenic drive along the Garden Route to gorgeous Knysna. Cruise the lagoon, explore the lush forests or hit the waves on this amazing Western Cape breakaway.
