When is the best time to book a flight to Africa?

The price you pay for your flight to Africa may vary depending on when you book. For the best chance of a lower fare, look to book 49 days in advance of your trip. Fares are likely to increase a fortnight or so before your departure date.

Which day is cheapest to fly to Africa?

The cheapest flights to Africa are usually found when departing on a Monday. The departure day with the highest cost at present is Friday.

What time of day is cheapest to fly to Africa?

To get the best value, try booking a flight at midday when visiting Africa. Generally the prices will increase for flights in the afternoon as these tend to have higher demand.

Where are the most popular flight destinations in Africa?

South Africa, Egypt, Kenya, Nigeria and Zimbabwe are the most popular flight destinations in Africa.

With an ancient history dating back to 3300 BC, Africa has an indefinable mystery and allure surrounding it, and each country within this large continent differs dramatically. From the North African countries – Morocco, Egypt or Tunisia through Nigeria, Sudan and Mali to South Africa the countries and their languages are varied and mix their African heritage with multicultural influences.

It’s important to plan your African trip right since it is such a vast continent with an abundance of attractions to see and must-try activities. If you’re interested in seeing wild animals then visit Kenya for the most impressive wildlife and the best organised tours. Or if history is your forte, where better to revel in the past than the ancient land of the pyramids and pharaohs? Visit Egypt for an experience of a lifetime. But if your idea of the perfect holiday is to spend lazy days on unspoilt beaches, then visit Africa’s popular island – Zanzibar in Tanzania.

Africa climate

The weather throughout the African continent is generally the same: warm year-round. But the North African countries including Egypt and Tunisia tend to be extremely hot between the months of June and September. High season is from September to April when the weather’s milder.

When is the best time to fly to Africa?

The best time for game watching is in mid-summer, specifically July when the rainy season is over.

South Africa enjoys its high season in December and January when hoards of tourists visit its cities but flights and accommodation are pricier during this period. Try to avoid visiting in from September to January when the gale winds blow wildly.

Countries closer to the Indian Ocean, Tanzania and Mauritius for example, have a heavy tropical rainy season that runs anywhere from January to March or even until June in some countries. For the best weather visit Africa anytime between June and October but try to avoid the scorching heat from December to March.
