Flights to Africa

Safari sunrises, days on the plains and sultry nights

Our flights to Africa get you within reach of epic mountain ranges, breathtaking coastline and some of the best places to view the 'big five' animals in their backyard. And of course, flying with Virgin Atlantic you’ll get all the little extras you’d expect from us.

On our Economy flights, you'll enjoy the latest movies on our in-flight entertainment, delicious meals, refreshments and friendly service throughout, ensuring you arrive relaxed and ready to begin your adventure. With the comfort of a Virgin Atlantic flight, Africa no longer feels so far away.

Treating yourself? We offer larger, wider seats in our separate Premium Economy cabin. Or you can push the boat out and travel in our award-winning Upper Class Suite.

South Africa

A lively city rich in recent history, Johannesburg is a hub for culture, museums and an emerging art scene. If it’s wildlife you’re looking for, there are few places better than South Africa to see some of the world’s most magnificent creatures. And close to the city is Pilanesberg National Park, home of the Big Five.
