Traveling To Africa, Please Help!

Tue Jan 20, 2004 11:13 pm

I am planning a trip to Africa this year. Can you help me to find a go priced ticket. I already did some search on the net but cannot come up with a price.
Halifax (YHZ) - London, England on April 30 (flexible 2 days before/after)
London, England - Lusaka (LUN), Zambia on July 30, (same flexibility)
LUN-YHZ, on Sep 6.
I am looking for economy seats. Whatever it the cheapest. If you find something, please provide me where you got it and how much.

KLM has a special to Jhb valid till the end of March, I think. Often, it is also cheaper to fly via Ams than direct, since they encourage transit traffic here and you also get the opportunity to stay over for up to four days in Amsterdam on the way! Let your agent look at it -- it's worth the small admin fee they charge if you book with them and saves you hours of searching around.
