RwandAir is currently selling very cheap flights from Brussels to Cape Town. One highlight of this deal is the extremely generous baggage allowance of 2 x 23 kg. According to many reviews on the internet, RwandAir does have some flaws and is far from being the perfect airline or someone’s first choice, but this deal simply represents good value for money.
RwandAir’s main hub is located in Kigali. Their flight from Kigali to Cape Town stops once in Harare (Zimbabwe), but as far as we know, you won’t even have to leave the plane for that 45 minute stop.
Search & Book
This fare is valid for RwandAir’s flights from Monday to Thursday (that means, departure in Brussels on either Tuesday or Thursday, and flying back from Cape Town on either Monday or Wednesday). The minimum trip length is set at 4 days, the maximum is 3 months.
Using Google Flights is a simple way to find available dates, and you’ll save at least €20 if you then book through our Travel-Dealz flight search instead of booking directly at rwandair.com. To make your search for available dates even easier, we’ve compiled an availability calendar for trips of 6 – 13 days:
Information & Tips for Cape Town
Cape Town is the second largest – but touristically more relevant – city in South Africa and especially known for the Table Mountain and the beaches in the south. The city is well connected to Europe and the rest of Africa by air travel.
Compared to Johannesburg, flights to Cape Town are pretty much always more expensive. A good price is 500€ – 600€ for a round trip ticket in economy class. Anything under 500€ can be considered a good deal, occasionally you can find fares around 400€, although without checked luggage for the most part.
Best Time to Visit
The ideal time to visit Cape Town is during the summer from the end of January until the end of April; the hottest temperatures are from December to February, although it is very windy during this time.
From the Airport to the City
Due to high crime rates, it is not recommended to take a bus or other forms of public transport in the regions surrounding the airport. A taxi from the airport to the city center costs about 18€ to 25€, an Uber is a good alternative and costs about half of that.
