Editor’s note: This deal has been updated to show only dates from February 2021. As the travel industry reopens following COVID-19 shutdowns, TPG suggests that you talk to your doctor, follow health officials’ guidance and research local travel restrictions before booking that next trip. We will be here to help you prepare, whether it is next month or next year.

With return flights to Johannesburg from just £288, now might be the perfect time to start planning that dream South African safari. The flights originate in Amsterdam and operate via Zurich with Swiss, which TPG recently discovered has a better-than-your-average meal service in economy.

Though the flights originate in Amsterdam, this shouldn’t be a problem. You can get there with a British Airways Reward Flight Saver for as little as £0.50. If you’re short on miles, return flights to Amsterdam can be found for as little as £43. Alternatively, you could always take the train.

South Africa reportedly will not open for tourism until 2021. The prices of tickets in this deal even include checked baggage.

To book these flights, head to Google Flights and enter Amsterdam (AMS) as your origin city and Johannesburg (JNB) as your destination. Be sure to set the class of service to economy and then scroll through the calendar function to find dates that work for you. Finally, make sure to book directly through Swiss’ website.
