At SkySurf.Travel, I was able to build an itinerary to 10 cities in Africa from London, England for $1,548 (£1,215) with taxes included.    That’s twice as many cities I’ll be visiting for about the same price.

Here’s how I did it:  I clicked on the “multi-city” tab, then entered in “London” in the “Traveling From” field.  Since I’m flexible with dates, I selected “August 2017” after clicking on the “Depart Date” field, and finally clicked on the “Search Best Deals!” button.

A list of the cheapest flight options returns.  I see a flight to Hurghada, Egypt (a beautiful place with very clean water, beaches and coral reefs, and wrecks of ships) on August 31, 2017 for $182.  I add this flight to my flight itinerary (BookIt List) by clicking on the “+Add to BookIt List” button. A pop-up then appears such as the one below:

I decided to stay in Hurghada for 5 nights, so I selected September 5, 2017 and then clicked on the “To another destination” link.  A new list of results returns; this time with the cheapest flights from Hurghada on September 5th.  My cheapest flight option is to Cairo, Egypt for $47.  I add this flight to my BookIt List, and then repeat the above process until my final flight is back to London, England.

Here’s my complete flight itinerary (BookIt List):

You may need vaccinations, visas, and appropriate clothing before traveling to Africa.  It is highly recommended to do research of the country you will be visiting before booking any flights, such as travel advice, advisories, and warnings.

Africa is amazing and everyone should visit.  It has something for everyone.  If you do visit, make sure to take a ton of photos of Africa’s stunning landscapes, which are as diverse as the animal kingdom.

Safe travels!
