The latest Qantas Fly Away sale is on, offering super cheap flights to South Africa.

Sorry, this sale is no longer running. Check our list of current flight sales to find a bargain!

Qantas Fly Away sales are always exciting because you never know what you're going to get. This time, the flying kangaroo is pulling out all of the stops with cheap flights to New Zealand, South America and South Africa.

It's not every day that we see a bargain flight to Johannesburg on a full-service carrier like Qantas, which is why we're very excited. Prices start at a low $1,399 return for departures from Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Brisbane.

Yep, you'll be paying the same price no matter which major city you fly out from.

There's a stack of travel dates to choose from too, with discounted flights available from 3 October to 24 November 2017, 21 January to 26 March 2018 and 19 April to 30 June 2018. Unfortunately, Christmas dates have been blocked out, but you can still make the most of some public holiday days including on Australia Day (26 January) and ANZAC Day (25 April).

Some sample dates for the cheapest flights include 3 October to 24 October and 5 October to 31 October 2017. These are based on Sydney departures.

Although South Africa is driven by four seasons, there are wetter months and drier months. The drier months are between April and October and are ideal for outdoor activities. That being said, you shouldn't rule out the wetter months in this sale either. These are between November and March and see the country take on a backdrop of lush green grass and animal activity.

The last notable Qantas sale for flights to Johannesburg saw flights drop down to $1,222 return. While the current sale isn't quite as low, those fares were heavily discounted to fill seats on last-minute flights. With almost a year to plan your trip to South Africa, this is a great option for those who prefer more time to sort out the finer details of their trip such as tours, travel insurance and travel money.

You can book these fares now or compare other flights to South Africa on I Want That Flight.

The Qantas Fly Away sale ends midnight 18 August unless seats sell out prior.
