Top 5 low cost destinations that South Africans should travel

Anele and the Club spoke to Arabile Gumede, their resident finance guru about places that South Africans can travel to for cheaper compared to pre-pandemic prices.

We listed some of the great holiday destination suggestions by Gumede down below.

1\. Maldives

It's usually a destination for, maybe, after nupitals. I don't know. I think right now I'm married more to life than anything else.

Perfect for a couples retreat away from it all, the majestic Maldives is the ideal place for loved ones to relax together.
A Maldives holiday is ideal for a romantic getaway, perfect for couples and adults, all year round.

2\. Namibia

Namibia is the soul of Africa, characterised by vast open spaces, breathtaking scenery and great contrasts – ocean, dunes, mountains and deserts.
This vast desert country of rolling dunes and swirling mists stirs the spirit and moves the heart.

3\. Victoria Falls

Victoria Falls known as the “Smoke that Thunders” in the local Tonga language, is the largest single curtain of falling water in the world.
Victoria Falls town (in Zimbabwe) lies on the southern bank of the Zambezi River at the eastern end of the Victoria Falls themselves.

4\. Uganda

You could go to Uganda if you are looking for a wild-life sort of retreat.

Uganda is rich with its giant lakes, grassy savannas, dense rainforests and towering mountains.

Think giant lakes, grassy savannas, dense rainforests, towering mountains and a capital city that buzzes with renewed excitement. Kampala has long since moved on from its past, and is now one of Africa’s safest and most welcoming cities.

5\. Local game reserve

In some instances, 27% less is how much it will cost you just to fly out to Nelspruit.

South Africa boasts a magnificent collection of wildlife regions and game parks. It consists of landscapes from deserts to forests to mountains to coast. Each of these landscapes is home to its own variety of wildlife and birdlife species.
Take a trip to your local game reserves or national parks.

Pre-pandemic and now, you're just seeing people trying to get back onto flights. They want to them flying more, they have made them a lot cheaper.
