    Heading to Zim this summer and need to book my flight. Flew Delta from Atlanta direct to Joburg in the past. Most people that I talk to get flight from 1400 to1800. I know that it is late in the year to find a flight with South African Airlines. I was at a show a couple of weeks ago and meet a guy who book a round trip flight from Dullus to Joburg for $800. That is a deal but I have not been able to find a flight that cheap. I would not mind a layover if I can save a thousands bucks. Any info is greatly appreciated.

    Never heard of one that cheap. Wonder what airline? Are you sure it wasn't one way only?

    Last year I flew Delta direct from Atlanta to JoBurg, caught a SAA regional flight to Polokwane, and the PH picked us up at the airport and drove the rest of the way to the hunting concession. The Delta flight was about $1600 and the regional flight was about $150. Anything less than that would be an absolute steal.
