With return flights with Swiss from London (LHR) to Johannesburg (JNB), South Africa, starting as low as £385 return, a South African safari might be the perfect restart to your post-COVID travel adventures. Travel restrictions for tourists entering won’t be lifted until at least February 2021, which is perfect as this deal includes dates from March to May 2021.

Next, set the airline to Swiss and scroll through the calendar to find the cheapest dates to fly, which are highlighted in green.
