Even the route map on the above link is not correct. SAA no longer serves MIA (now ATL and FLL) and the route from Perth to Sydney no longer exists (soon or already). They will code-share with QF non-stop from JNB to SYD. No SAA LHR flights stop in ZRH - all go nonstop to either CPT or JNB.

Now ATL, FLL and JFK (as stated aboce).
DUS, MUC and AMS have been closed, as was CPH that used to be served. SAA is still flying to CDG. Flights operate 5 times a week and go via ZRH (although the ZRH flight is daily).
EZE and GRU are both served twice weekly non-stop from JNB, GIG operations have been ceased.
PER and SYD are still being served as a combination flight JNB-PER-SYD 4 times weekly. Situation will probably change next year, when a code share agreement with QF will come into effect.
Hong Kong served thrice weekly with own aircraft and 4 times as a code share flight operated by CX.
Bankok route flown thrice weekly. All flights operated by B747SP!
Bombay served 3 times a week, non-stop from JNB.
Operations to TPE have been ceased.
SAA doesn't operate its own aircraft to the Middle East anymore. DXB is operated daily under a code share agreement with Emirates (with A330-200), whilst TLV is operated thrice weekly by El Al, usually in B767-200ER.
Apart from the Southern African destinations, SAA indeed operates into Lagos (3 weekly), Abidjan and Accra (served as a combination JNB-ACC-ABJ) in West Africa. Flights to Kinshasa have been ceased. The airline operates 3 flights into Luanda (LAD), daily flights to Nairobi (NBO), and 5 weekly connections to Mauritius (MRU).
All flight operate from JNB, non-stop flights from CPT to MRU were the last in a series to be ceased.
Some international south african flights are operated by South African Express and Airlink.
