Flights to Johannesburg

Discover the many facets of ‘Jozi’

Like a good balance between nature and city life? Then book flights to Johannesburg and you’ll experience a vibrant South African metropolis as well as the stunning surroundings. In this financial heart of South Africa, you can get to know the turbulent history of the country in the Nelson Mandela National Museum and the Apartheid Museum. In the evening you can enjoy the city's exuberant nightlife. Once you’ve seen enough of the city, head out to the Johannesburg Zoo or on a multi-day safari to the impressive Kruger Park.

Elephants and lions in your backyard

One of the main reasons to visit this country is the beautiful nature. The world-famous Kruger National Park, where you’ll stand face to face with lions, zebras and elephants, is easily reached from Johannesburg. Lion Park, just outside the city, is another popular attraction. Johannesburg is the ideal destination for a city break or the perfect start of an inspiring tour of South Africa. Experience it for yourself: book a flight to Johannesburg now!

Cosy going out in ‘Jozi’

Life really begins in ‘Jozi’ – as Johannesburg is sometimes affectionately called by its inhabitants – once the working day is done. Enjoy a gourmet meal at one of the restaurants on Nelson Mandela Square while being entertained by street artists. Once dinner is finished, there is a huge variety of clubs and cocktail bars in Johannesburg for you to choose from. The luxury Melville district attracts fashionable clubbers. For a colourful mix of music styles, go to Bassline in the Newtown district for the best of blues, jazz and African rap.
