Being in South Africa, watching an England captain lift the World Cup is a dream many fans hope will come true. Even if David Beckham’s chances have been snatched of playing in the epic tournament, you can still have the opportunity to be there in person.
But planning to get there takes a little more time and effort than going to a home game. As excitement for the World Cup builds, so will flight prices. Deciding where you’re going to fly to is the first move. Matches will be played in nine South African cities. Most of these are in the north-east of South Africa, and apart from Cape Town and Port Elizabeth, are a few hours’ drive from Johannesburg. So Johannesburg is a good central destination for football fans.
As well as taking in the footy, it’s worthwhile considering making the most of the country’s other attractions. For football widows, England’s first group match takes place in Rustenburg – also famous for the Sun City resort complete with safari park. It’s worth keeping in mind that our summer is South Africa’s winter, so if you’re expecting a beach holiday, you’ll be disappointed. But you can still enjoy the famous safaris and game parks in Johannesburg. If you’re going to fly all the way to South Africa, make the most of your trip and make sure you pack a pair of binoculars. You can opt for tailor-made itineraries that will ensure you take in the best tourist hotspots but you will be looking at an expensive price tag. Accommodation however could be a problem during the tournament so it is crucial you book ahead. Using a specialist travel company with expert knowledge and contacts in the country is the best way of finding the cheapest deals.
As well as the football, South Africa is known for its warm hospitality. But even so, independent travel to the country demands a certain intrepid approach. Out of season flight prices will also be hiked up as demand is high, so make sure you use a low cost flight website to avoid being ripped off. Travelling around South Africa isn’t easy, which is why a tailor-made package is the best bet, but not everyone will be able to afford the thousands upon thousands of pounds these cost (official FIFA packages can average £8,300 for a couple). Specialist travel agencies can help, giving you the advice and information you need for a successful World Cup trip.
