In an attempt to jump start demand in a market troubled by discouraging news stories, South African Airways Vacations launched a Summer Sizzler Saver sale with price reductions up to $500 per package on more than 70 air-inclusive packages for travel to southern Africa and a savings of $1,000 per person on its lead sale item, the South African Sizzler.

For those who would like to make it to Africa some time in their lives, SAA Vacations is making an offer it hopes they can’t refuse: air-inclusive packages to Africa at prices starting under $2,000. It’s a price that you may have to dig into history a ways to find for an air-inclusive trip to Africa.

The South African Sizzler package is now priced from $1,999 per person, a reduction calculated to be a savings of $1,000 per person. The package includes four nights in Cape Town at the Protea Sea Points Hotel and a three-day/two-night safari at Kwa Maritane Bush Lodge  including safari game drives in the Pilanesberg National Park.

SAA Vacations’ Affordable South Africa package is currently priced from $2,299 per person double occupancy, including air. It’s a savings of $800 per person.

The Affordable South Africa package includes four nights in Cape Town at the Protea Sea Point Hotel, a full-day tour of the Cape Peninsula and the Cape of Good Hope and time to explore Cape Town on your own, coupled with a three-day, two-night safari in Pilanesberg National Park at Shepherd’s Tree Game Lodge.

To get the Summer Sizzler prices, the packages must be booked by May 15 for travel June 1-Aug. 10.

“We are reducing the prices on some of our most popular air-inclusive packages so that our customers can discover South Africa during the popular summer travel period,” said Terry von Guilleaume, president of South African Airways Vacations. “We have taken the low fares offered by South African Airways from New York and Washington D.C. to South Africa and added further discounts to make that summer vacation even more affordable.”
