If you’ve been thinking about going to Africa—whether on a safari, a cultural trip, searching for your roots, or any purpose—this is the best airfare we’ve seen in a long time.

  • It's been 11 years since I went camping in Botswana, but what a trip! Among the most memorable travel experiences I've had: pitching our tent in the bush -- no game park, no fences, nothing between us and the wild animals -- in the Okavango Delta. And a cool, starry night sitting around a campfire with the San (Bushmen), who told told tribal stories and legends. We had no idea what they were saying, of course, but it was magical (especially for a former linguistics student!) to hear them speaking their clicking language. I would go back in a minute.
