Additional learn to fly bonuses
Durban is South Africa's premier holiday city and offers year round sunshine and the bikini beaches, fishing, scuba diving and snorkeling that go with our sub-tropical climate.

You can visit our fantastic game parks, like the Tembe Elephant Park, the Kruger National Park and the Umfolosi and Hluhluwe Rhino Game Reserves, in between the flying lessons.
And the magnifent Drakensberg Mountain Range offering climbing, hiking and trout fishing is less than two hours away.
