Flights to Mthatha
Airlink operates flights to and from Mthatha and Johannesburg on a daily basis, with a flight time of 85 minutes. Mthatha lies in the heart of the Transkei in the Eastern Cape - Madiba country. Nelson Mandela was born and grew up in this area, leaving a permanent legacy in Mthatha, where the main buildings of the Nelson Mandela Museum are situated. The Transkei is an area of outstanding natural beauty, somewhat untouched by the modern world: cattle and donkeys graze along the roadsides, women wear traditional dress and the hillsides are dotted with picturesque African homesteads. Along the coast of the Eastern Cape, the 'Wild Coast', stretch pristine beaches and hills for hiking.
