Saga is offering two incredible "three weeks for the price of two" all-inclusive deals in South Africa this year. The hotel-based holidays, including return flights and a variety of excursions, work out at under 70 per person per day.

And that price covers all meals, including a last-night gala farewell dinner, a free bar open at least 12 hours a day, a welcome drink and a special Saga cocktail party, plus at least four excursions and all the necessary bits like insurance, cancellation cover and airport taxes.

In the coastal town of Fish Hoek - the best place on the Cape Peninsula to spot whales between July and November, the Avenue Hotel makes an ideal base from which to explore Cape Town. The 51-room property features a dining room, bar, and a lounge opening out on to a poolside terrace. In addition to the pool, recreational features include an activity room and a library.

Included in the Avenue offer are full-day excursions to Cape Town, Kirstenbosch botanical gardens, Simon's Town, and Hermanus, there are also optional excursions to Cape Point and nature reserve, Cape Winelands and the Garden Route.

The Humewood Hotel, in Port Elizabeth, overlooks Algoa Bay and the golden sands of Kings Beach and is 500 metres from "the Friendly City's" main museum and its dolphinarium. The property has 67 bedrooms, a restaurant, a separate breakfast room, outdoor pool and has received Saga's one rosette good food award. Public swimming pools are directly opposite.

Among the included excursions at the Humewood Hotel are a full day's safari in the Addo Elephant National Park, Cape St Francis and Jefferys Bay a Township tour. Optional excursions include a full marine day and trips to Kragga Kamma and Tsitsikamma.

The Travellers World brochure price-tag for both hotel stays starts at 1,419, but that's for 23-night breaks* - even discounting the two nights spent on board aircraft, the per-person price is still well under 70 a day.

Both of these hotels are also bases for Saga's Volunteer travel programme, which gives people the chance to share their knowledge, skills and experience to help economically poor communities in turn for a rewarding experience.

The special offers at the Homewood Hotel are available with flights departing London between June 2-15, while those at the Avenue Hotel are available for travellers leaving London between July 5-August 29.
