The best time to travel to St Helena is December to April. There is a weekly flight on Saturdays between South Africa and St Helena all year round but between December and April there is an additional flight most Tuesdays which now makes it possible to visit St Helena for just three or four nights.
This itinerary combines some key pre-booked excursions and tours with plenty of free time for you to arrange your own activities locally.
We will book flights from South Africa to St Helena together with any stopovers, excursions and safaris according to preference.
