For cheaper tickets to Africa , consider the following :
- Consider flying into bigger African cities like Nairobi or Johannesburg. There is a lot more competition going to those cities, and frequently better deals to them from other continents. For example, flying into Nairobi vs. Kilimanjaro airport can save you hundreds of dollars. Yes, it is a bit of a bus ride to get to Kili, but many savvy travelers use Nairobi and save big bucks.
- For example when searching a flight from London to Kilimanjaro the price was $881 at two weeks notice but the flight from London to Nairobi priced at $793 for the same dates. Adding a stop in Dubai drops the price to $790 for planning two weeks in advance and to $611 for planning a month in advance. Click here to search this route
- Take advantage of the low traffic days and fly mid-week
- Try to travel during the shoulder season rather than high season. The continent is vast so it requires a bit of research
Africa Travel Tips
Far from being one big homogenous cultural experience, Africa is an endlessly diverse continent with more than 50 countries (including several islands!) just waiting to be explored. And we have deals on airfare to Africa, flying into just about every single international airport in Africa!
Egypt, Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia are popular destinations to visit in Northern Africa, while Tanzania and Malawi are the leaders in tourism crowds when it comes to East Africa. Western Africa is the best to visit if you plan to get off the beaten path and Southern Africa is popular for the safaris and game-viewing, with South Africa, Mozambique and Botswana being the most visited countries in the area.
