Africa is believed to be one of the best tourist destinations in the world, offering something for everyone. The best time to visit for enjoying the most popular attractions of the country like game watching and safari is in mid-summer, specifically the month of July when the rainy season is over.
During December and January, Africa enjoys its high season as hordes of tourists fly down to this place and also the availability of accommodation and flights is exceptionally higher.
Africa is considerably made of two different zones that are politically and geographically divided. These zones include Northern Zone and Sub Saharan countries. As far as finding flights to all parts of the country is concerned, it is much easier to find flights to South Africa, than to the other Sub Saharan countries.
People who frequently travel to Africa always face tough competition for flights from Europe to their desired destination in this country, specifically for Nigeria, as there are a very few direct flights available for London. Travelers in large number mostly search South African flights during winter. The reason behind this is in winter the climate here is often quite favorable. There are more chances of finding flight connections via other European airports, as Africa does not include major Intercontinental airport hubs.
