Africa is a beautiful continent and a home to over 3000 ethnic groups. Combining this with the continent’s central geographical location and its incredible natural features makes Africa an amazing place for everyone. Take a flight to Africa any time of the year and be part of the continent’s cultural, traditional, and social events. You can book cheap Africa flight deals in February and participate in the Sahara Marathon. This six-day marathon started as a solidarity race for refugee children from sub-Saharan countries. You can also take a flight to Africa in July and attend Zanzibar International Film Festivals (ZIFF). ZIFF is a nine-day event that takes place every July. Due to its ever-growing popularity, this event attracts thousands of tourists from all over the world to come and enjoy the best films, movies, and documentaries from across the continent. Umhlanga Reed Dance is another African cultural event that you don’t want to miss. August has become a popular month in Swaziland due to Umhlanga Reed Dance. Over 40,000 Swazi maidens come together in public gatherings to showcase their prowess in dance extravaganza. You are welcome to join the maidens, wear costumes, and dance along, making this event even more attractive.

If you want to witness over 1,000 wildebeests per km² moving in unison between Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park and Kenya’s Masai Mara National Park, don’t miss your cheap Africa flight deals to East Africa. More than 2 million wildebeests and over 20,000 plains-game travel in a closed loop with no beginning or end from late October to mid-November.

Kilimanjaro. Known by the locals as the crème de la crème of African hikes, Mt. Kilimanjaro has four hiking trails: Machame, North Circuit, Lemosho, and Shira. Each hiking route offers unique scenery and hiking experiences as you enjoy the bright orange sunrises and fresh mountain air. A trip to Africa cannot be complete without going on a wildlife Safari. From sporting the Big Five, tracking endangered animals, to witnessing annual wildebeest migration, don’t miss the opportunity to enjoy spectacular African landscapes and a diverse range of indigenous wildlife.
