The continent of Africa is home to some amazing countries in the world, and there is so much to see that it is a little bit difficult to know where to begin when planning to visit.

There are 54 countries full of breathtaking scenery, big cities, and small villages, and many hidden gems. It is a melting pot of cultures, and it is hard to define the continent as a whole because there is so much diversity and history.

The continent is full of natural beauty, from tropical coastlines and rainforests to deserts and mountains, Africa has it all. Whether you’re dying to experience the savannah of the Serengeti or the canyons of the Great Rift Valley, you’ll love Africa if you’re a nature lover.

Africa is also famously home to some of the best wildlife in the world, and elephants, hippos and lions all call Africa home. Heading out on safari is a lifechanging experience and one that will leave you full of wonder for the natural wonder of this great continent.

Here at Globehunters, we offer flights to a number of African countries, so whatever it is you’re dying to experience, we’re here to make sure you get the very best deal.

Flying To Africa From The UK

Here are a few things you should know about flying from the UK to Africa, including flight time and entry requirements.

Flight Times

Considering how large the continent of Africa is, it comes as no surprise that the flight times vary a lot.

London to Johannesburg will take you approximately eleven hours direct while travelling from London to Accra could take you six and a half hours.

Entry Requirements

Most African countries will require you to hold a visa in order to visit, but the rules for obtaining one tend to vary.

You can visit South Africa for up to 90 days without needing to obtain a visa if you hold a UK passport. Parents travelling with children should be aware that they will need to carry the child(ren)’s unabridged birth certificate which lists the child’s details and both parents’ details, and in cases where only one parent is travelling with the child, an affidavit from the other parent or a death certificate will be required.

Several other African countries allow travellers with UK passports to obtain a visa upon arrival, while others will need to be applied for in advance.

If you are planning to visit Kenya, Rwanda and Uganda in the same trip, you can obtain an East African Visa which covers all three countries.

We recommend that you check the gov.uk travel advice for the country you plan to visit before booking flights.
