Round-trip flights to South Africa are available for only $469 in what may be an error fare (a ticket price posted without the expensive fuel surcharge or airport taxes added on) spotted by the Airfare Spot.

If you’re not deterred by a bit of uncertainty, you won’t want to miss this flight deal. It’s easily half the cost of a standard flight from the United States to South Africa.

Flights depart from Miami and arrive in Johannesburg between November 1-10, November 17, and December 1-11. You’ll fly with Virgin Atlantic and Air France, both top-rated airlines.

Because airlines can choose not to honor error fares, it’s recommended that you wait for a confirmation from the airline before arranging any hotel, restaurant, or tour reservations.

Once you arrive, you’ll find your dollar goes far in South Africa this year.

And Joburg is having a bit of a moment. You can get a great night's rest at the Four Seasons Westcliff: the brand’s first property in the country. And you can take a Nelson Mandela-themed walking tour, and explore the new Common Ground urban park in the Maboneng Precinct.
