October - November 2017


World Cities Day, a United Nations’ day of observation, is celebrated the world over on Tuesday 31 October. Visiting a major city, taking in its energy, cultural nuances, its colours and flavours is one of the most exhilarating experiences any traveler could have. The bustle of New York City or the rich diversity of London, the architecture in Frankfurt and the sights and sounds of Africa’s greatest cities. Port Louis, Accra, Lagos, Libreville, Dar es Salaam, Nairobi; the continent’s exceptional roll-call of inspiring culture and cuisine, heritage and natural wonders situated close to cities. SAA flies to more African destinations than any other airline and within the Star Alliance network, offers exceptional global reach for our customers.

In the inspiring words of Mark Twain: 'Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did'. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in you sail. Explore. Dream. Discover.

Warm regards,

SAA Voyager Team
