“Tanzania, Kenya and Uganda boast some of the most awe-inspiring and exciting sights and activities on the African continent, with plains teeming with wildlife as far as the eye can see in Tanzania and Kenya, and gorilla trekking in Uganda that puts people in the habitat of these majestic creatures,” said Marc Cavaliere, executive vice president, North America, for South African Airways. “With these low fares, SAA is making that dream trip of a lifetime this winter much more affordable.”

South African Airways features daily nonstop service from the US to South Africa with morning departures from New York JFK and afternoon direct service from Washington Dulles (with a stop in Dakar, Senegal) that offer travel convenience and award-winning service.

SAA’s unrivaled network, featuring seamless connections to nearly 20 destinations within South Africa, and more than 25 cities across the rest of the continent, makes the airline the savvy traveler’s “gateway to Africa.”
