Flights to Africa can be long, but they don’t have to be uncomfortable. Condé Nast Traveller reports that South African Airways provides the second most legroom in the world at an average of 33.5 inches.
South African Airways flies not only to its namesake but also to Namibia and Zimbabwe. It’s a great choice when you’re planning a safari to southern Africa.
Cape Town is among South African Airways’ most popular destinations, and for good reason. On the coast, it’s a great place to start a land-and-sea safari, introducing you to penguins, seals, and other creatures you wouldn’t see inland. Spending a day or two there can also help you adjust to the time difference before you embark to the wilds, and also introduce you to the country’s diverse and vibrant cultures.
