larondey has indicated that this thread is about South Africa

Hey! I am hoping to get from the Johannesburg/Pretoria area to Walvis Bay, Namibia, sometime around Christmas. The best flight deals I can find are on South African Airways for $461/R2809 roundtrip. For such a short flight, this seems like a LOT of money. Does anyone from South Africa know of any good search engines/deals for flights to Namibia from S.A.?

Thanks!
James

I flew last year on Air Namibia. Did you check there fares?

I also missed a connection from J-Burg to Windhock and they put me on the next flight which was on British Air (maybe check their fare).

Hey James,

Namibia is one of my favorite places. Where else are you gonna go besides Walvis Bay? How long are you planning on spending in Namibia? I was there last year, if you have any questions, feel free to ask.

Hey! I'm planning on visiting friends in Walvis Bay. I'm only planning on being there maybe a week over Christmas. I'll prob make it to Swakopmund, but besides that I don't think I'll see much of the country!

I WILL definitely return though, my best friend lives in W-Bay!

Swakopmund is a really nice town (pretty close to Walvis Bay). While you're there at least try and talk your friend into a visit down to sand dunes at Sossusvlei.

Enjoy ALL your upcoming travels! :)

Always Try Air Namibia,

Tyr both routes - Direct out of JHB or via Cape town - regularly fly ex CPT to Windhoek, then on to Angola etc.

Remember SAA is EXPENSIVE local carrier - has local main routes TIED UP.
Locally BA has a service partner also doing some local routes.

Watch out Windhoek airport is +_ 80 Kms from the city. So either fly over to SwaKop or take the interesting drive - its WORTH IT otherwise you see nothing on your visit

Swakop much better than Walvis - local ales a good excuse to stay over.
