I’m lucky enough to have been to South Africa around thirty times, so The Times recently picked my brains on what I thought would make a great two week introductory itinerary down there.

There are three pages to this but because of copy-write issues I can’t publish it all here – if you want to see the whole thing you need to be an online subscriber to the Times. Sorry!

Nelson Mandela was born one hundred years ago this month at Mvezo in the Eastern Cape. To celebrate his legacy, I looked at how visitors to South Africa can explore the country with the 20th-century’s most iconic figure in mind.

Read all about it if you’re flying Cathay Pacific this month in Discovery, their in-flight magazine. In all good seat-back pockets now.
