We're Dec 8-24, but this time we're bypassing C.T. completely. Hermanus, Franschhoek and Stellenbosch in that order!

In the past I've had good luck with J awards on SA, but I recongnise that his currency doesn't work on *A.

OP has 200k VS miles to throw at it.
SA are an airline partner of VS even though not a *A member.

Some notes about ex-AMS fares: The cheapest ones require 60 days AP, so keep an eye on that deadline. If you can fly the first sector (AMS-LON) by 15 September, you can use a cheap AMS-CPT fare - although the stopover before your first long-haul flight would then attract a 100 stopover fee plus UK APD, so you will have to calculate whether this is worth the time saving if you can then book the LON-CPT non-stops. And do keep an eye on the 60d AP deadline if you are going to do this. Finally, consider routing through DUR in one direction; you may like the fares that you see as a result.
