What is the best way to travel around Africa?

After booking your flights to Africa, the next step is creating your own itinerary for the trip. For internal travel inside Egypt, your best bet is to opt for domestic flights, which are cheap and abundant. From Cairo, you can get to Alexandria in only 45min by plane. In Morocco, the trains are the preferred way to get around as they’re well-connected and inexpensive - from Casablanca, you can easily get to Marrakech in under 3h by train. In South Africa, however, hiring a car is the way to go for those who want efficiency and autonomy to visit all the sights around the main cities, like Cape Town and Johannesburg. However, for inter-city travel, flying is best due to the long distances. Flying to Africa can be easy and cost-efficient when you have the best tools at hand.

Although it’s not necessary to apply for a visa for visits to Egypt, Morocco, and South Africa for up to 90 days, you’ll need to present proof of accommodation, a return flight and enough funds for your trip. It’s also advisable that you exchange currency before your trip as, depending on your arrival time, services at the airports may not be open. All set to go?
