Flights to Africa vary in price depending on when you want to visit and what country you are flying to. Booking your flights to Africa as early in advance as possible only serves to save you money, so don’t hesitate hoping for a last minute deal as these are becoming rarer and rarer. Cheap flights to Africa can be found during the rainy season, and late on in the year, again you’ll have to make sure to book at least a month in advance, especially if your flights to Africa take you to a popular destination such as Cairo or Cape Town. It’s worth finding out if there are any particular events, festivals or national holidays taking place when you want to visit and these can skyrocket the price of flights to Africa.

That said, December to March can be uncomfortably hot so if you’re someone who doesn’t deal with the heat too well, visit in October for a bit of cooler weather and cheap flights to Africa. Off Season: Certain countries such as Tanzania have a very heavy tropical rain season that can run anywhere from January to March, sometimes even until June. While this might not be ideal, you’ll find cheap flights to Africa and less crowds across the cities, making it a great time of year to secure your flight tickets if you don’t mind very wet weather. September to January can also be extremely windy in certain counties in Africa too, although the heat is still intense so temperatures can become uncomfortable. You’ll find deals on your flight tickets scattered across these months, with November being a good month to find cheap flights to Africa.
