WHEN TO BOOK
There are no set times in the year when Africa goes on sale. However, booking for a period that is considered off-peak – generally outside July to October – is the way to go for the budget-conscious.
As with any region, book your travel as early as you can to get a good price. Hay says airfare offers pop up throughout the year and if you see fares for about $1500 return to Johannesburg, you should jump on them.
