This is awesome, considering flights to S.A. cost approx £700. Any idea if i don't have a British/eu passport, (i have an S.A. passport), would i need a visa to.go through via Rome. Even if I'm just gonna be in transit and not leaving the airport?

If you are only in transit you should not experience any problems

Thanks. I'm assuming this flight deal is just transit only in Rome and not staying over in Rome?

It looks like it arrives Rome 10:55 in the morning on the 10 Nov, leaves on the 13 at 10pm so 3 and a bit days for sightseeing, enough time to make a bit of a dent in stuff to see.

That'd be a long time to sit in the airport in transit saadiya.
Airport only. Need to stay inside passport control. Sorry
Why would anyone want to go to Johannesburg?

Kruger national park, Sun City, Blyde River Canyon Nature Reserve etc.

Its the best place I have been from 30+ countries
Excellent deal, very good places to visit in SA, domestic flights also cheap.
Would recommend taking the garden route to cape town from Durban

This is the consumer version of Timatic that all airlines use to determine if a passenger has the right paperwork or not.
Not a fan of the in broad daylight violence in South Africa, but a cracking price for those who really need to go.

Is there any place on the planet that is 100% safe? If there is, then tourists will flood it and mess it up anyway. Take precautions, understand & respect local customs, don't go looking for adventures which you wouldn't do home and you will be fine.

I agree, no place is 100% safe, and tourists should not go looking for trouble and respect local customs. But when I speak with my South African friends and ask them if the perception of violence is just a myth, they say "unfortunately no", that even larger urban areas are less safe than similar areas in other parts of the world and you might get into trouble for no particular reason if you're unlucky. I would love to see the parks, but with 2 small kids I don't want to take any chances.
South Africans are killing other Africans, burning foreigner's offices, business premises etc., and telling them to go back home. I wouldn't go there for free.

Of course it is violent in some places, especially cities, but if you only want to see the parks, it is as safe as any place in the world. You hire a car or get into a guided coach at the airport, drive on a motorway all the way to the park, and once in the park there is zero crime.

Not like the British telling everyone else to go home, then?

I'm not British. Btw, telling people to go home is different from killing and burning down offices. SA is a no no for me. Not in the next 50 years

I definitely don't feel that comfortable sometimes when walking around some city areas but I do definitely think the locals exaggerate the danger levels at times, especially for tourists.

I don't want to downplay play the far too much horrific crime that does occur in the country though.

No, one said you were British. But if you like, substitute your own nationality, because there are xenophobes everywhere. Like you, I should add, hating a whole country because of the acts of fewer than 0.1% of a population.
anorthernsoul8323/09/2019 07:15

Indeed.


And yet, amazingly, millions do go. Maybe they know something you don’t?

There's violence in London now isn't there, in broad daylight ..

The SA violence isn't against holiday makers , it's misplaced jealously between African nations

Essentially similar to hard working Poles and chechs "Stealing jobs" off indigenous brits, but with lot more violence

Where is the stop on way out, this could be good for us on way out / back from Zim
Ok , Abu Dhabi

It's long old detour, if you like that sort of thing.

you can get to joburg, not via asia , for about 500 anyway that time year

I agree completely. To add to the observation that it is similar to British complaints about other nationals: put anyone in the world in the situation South Africans are in, and exactly the same results will follow.
Anyway, all got to remember is don't get into cars not authorized by your hotel at the airport

Do not flash your cash generally , and if you are unlucky enough to be robbed,do not resist.

It's all about your money in SA, nothing more

They can go for it.

The worlds number #1 in rape levels and the most appalling mutilations and murders on white people might put some people off though, including me.

Have fun though.

Have you been to Joburg?

Easy to have your outlook if you listen to second and third hand information.

I lived and worked in Joburg in 2017 and thoroughly enjoyed my time there.

Just follow the advice of the locals and the chances are you'll be just fine

One thing I'll say about RSA is that it would be very easy to be lulled into a false sense of security as everybody comes across as very friendly.

I'd certainly recommend a visit to RSA and wouldn't think twice about going back.

Come on now , you cant possibly guarantee all this on holiday
There seems to be a long layover somewhere from Rome to Johannesburg - AUH? Would it be worth coming out of the airport here?
Also, could anyone share the cost of holidaying in SA? Ta!
Heat!
You could spend Lots in some posh safari lodged otherwise it's pretty similar to Europe all round
Glad we didn't attempt going out airport in Emirates- I recall it was 37 degrees , at half past seven in the mornin

These statistics about violence in South Africa are misleading.
Example Cape Town is in the top ten most dangerous cities in the world because it is annexed to Mitchell's Plain where more than 90% of the crime is perpetrated. I spent 3 months in Cape Town from Sept 2016 and never encountered any problems despite walking around in daylight as well as dusk

Yip, if you’re a sheep, I’m sure that’s what you saw.
My wife was killed on our trip to SA a few years ago, I'm planning on taking my new wife. Cheers OP
