New survey names South Africa as one of the top three holiday destinations this summer

South Africa has been named as one of the top holiday destinations for this summer in a poll by British Airways (BA).

The airline conducted a survey on social network Facebook to identify where Britons are planning to spend their summer holidays this year.

BA found that many are looking to escape the cold and wet weather back home and enjoy a relaxing break in warmer countries, with South Africa listed in the top three ideal holiday destinations, alongside the Caribbean and Florida.

Claire Bentley, British Airways’ holidays managing director, said: “South Africa is a real dream destination with Cape Town, Table Mountain and the garden route all top attractions.

“We’ve had a great response to our Facebook poll, which just shows how important holidays are to people.”

The majority of respondents would also rather enjoy ‘a relaxing beach vacation’ during their holiday this summer than ‘romantic city-breaks’, ‘fun-filled family getaways’ or ‘an all-action adventure trip’.
