How long is the flight to Africa?

You can find cheap flights to Africa from Doha Hamad Airport (DOH) in Qatar which is the only serving international airport which offers flights to Africa.  Book flights to Africa direct with Qatar Airways or Egypt Air from Doha Airport to Cairo Airport (CAI) in Egypt for a journey time of around 3-4h. If you compare flights to Africa Qatar Airways has a flight to Nairobi Airport (NBO) in Kenya direct from Doha Airport with an average journey time between 5-6h. If you are flying to Africa in the southern region, you can book flights to Africa direct from Doha Airport to Johannesburg Airport (JNB) with a journey time of around 8h.

What is the best way to travel around Africa?

If you prefer to travel more independently when flying to Africa, it may be worth considering renting a car from the airport when you land.  This way you can avoid crowded public transport which may not always get you to your chosen destination.  If you have booked flights to Africa and are travelling to Kenya for Safari trips, you can find many organised tours that provide overland transport and offer accommodation and food.  This is a very convenient way to see the continent and you may find cheaper deals if you look for group bookings. When flying to Africa, public transport, however, can be very economical, and buses are available throughout the continent yet may require slightly more planning, and minivans are common modes of transport between countries.  If you book cheap flights to South Africa, consider using the Baz Bus which is useful for transporting you on several popular routes to major attractions.

What do I need to do before my flight to Africa?

Most countries in Africa will require some form of visa for Qatari citizens to enter the country so bear this in mind when you book cheap flights to Africa.  If your flights to Africa are for Kenya, you can apply for an E-visa, or obtain a visa on arrival which is valid for 90 days. Also, if you have flights to Africa in the south, you will be pleased to know a visa is not required for stays of up to 90 days. It is advisable to check if your vaccinations are up to date, especially if you are visiting zones which have high levels of yellow fever or malaria.

What are some things to do in Africa?

If you have enjoyed Africa flight details, and are visiting Egypt in Africa, the Pyramids and the Cairo Museum are undoubtedly a must-visit location to see as well as the Valley of the Kings in Luxor.  Safari tours are a must if you are visiting Kenya to view spectacular wildlife in natural habitats, or equally in South Africa which is home to Kruger National Park.
