to layover a day or two or not? Africa trip

Jump to last reply

Travelling to Africa this summer with two kids 10 and 11 yrs. We will fly from NYC/Philly area and arrive in Jo'burg. Of course all airline stop somewhere in Europe, but layovers can be long i.e. arrival at 6am and next flight is 8pm.

Wondering if its best to just book flight and see about a day trip to nearest City or just do laps around airport?!

Thought about laying over for a nite or two on the way to Africa and then doing a direct flight home as the layover times are minimal. However thats a lot of flying time all together…

Thoughts? Advice?

Thanks!
