Take advantage of South Africa Airways' new flights to Kenya for just $999 on a round-trip flight from New York City – taxes included.

In Northern Africa, explore ancient architectural sights and cruise the Nile in an outside cabin with a 7-night escorted tour of Egypt for $739. Visit famous temples at ports along the Nile, the longest river in the world, then spend three nights in legendary Cairo, while seeing the sights with your tour guide. This package from FIT Tours never exceeds 20 travelers, meaning you'll experience the best of Egypt in a safe, intimate setting.
