Travelers interested in seeing Africa – whether to visit the pyramids of Egypt, swim the beaches of South Africa or photograph the continent’s Big Five (elephant, lion, leopard, rhino and Cape buffalo) – can now do it for less and with a wide degree of flexibility on SkyTeam’s new ‘Go Africa Pass’.
Airline Members of SkyTeam
SkyTeam, an international airline alliance, numbers the U.S. carrier Delta among members as well as Aeromexico, Air France, Alitalia, Kenya Airways, KLM, three China airlines and several other international carriers.
How ‘Go Africa Pass’ Works
The Go Africa Pass is similar to other SkyTeam multi-trip offerings – like the popular ‘Go Round the World Pass’ – as it allows travelers to take as many as 16 flights with a choice of 45 destinations throughout the continent at discounted prices.
How to Plan Around the World Flights
To begin their journey, travelers must fly a SkyTeam member airline to Africa, then book the first flight on Kenya Airways. More details are available on the SkyTeam website.
All travelers heading outside the U.S. are reminded of the excellent resources available on the State Deparement website Travel.State.Gov, which includes ‘country specific’ information that is invaluable for novice tourists and veteran international travelers alike.
