Spring and autumn both have their benefits too, the temperatures are still warm but there are fewer tourists around giving you a better chance to secure cheap flights to Bloemfontein. For spring aim to visit between late September and early December and for autumn book your flights for around February to April.

How to get from the airport to the city centre?

Your transport options are fairly limited once you arrive at the airport however there are a couple of ways to find your way to the centre.

You’ll find these outside of the airport but make sure to agree on the fare before you get in else you might end up getting ripped off. You could also look into pre-arranging transport to collect you from the airport, while it won’t be as cheap as just jumping into a random taxi, it might make you feel safer knowing a legitimate driver will be there.
