Flight: South African Airways SA 74
From: Johannesburg (JNB) To: Windhoek (WDH)
I flew with South African Airways from Johannesburg to Windhoek, booking via airfare search site Vayama. The flight was provided by the Namibia Tourism Board as part of a press trip I took to Namibia.
This flight was the last of three flights I took to get from Bangkok to Windhoek (here were my BKK-HKG and HKG-JNB legs).
After flying overnight for 13 hours from Hong Kong to Johannesburg, this was an easy flight for me. This flight was boarded on the tarmac, so I have technically touched the ground in South Africa (but I still don’t count it as having visited).
A cooked lunch was provided and I had the chicken, potato, and spinach option. It was a tasty lunch and I am still pleasantly surprised when an airline provides a cooked lunch on a 2 hour flight.
The flight arrived just ahead of schedule at Hosea Kutako International Airport. There are no air bridges at WDH so you walk form the plane to the terminal.

Namibia is one of my dream destinations. Can’t wait to visit!
