Hello, I was wondering if you can upgrade to first-class or business-class on the flight from new york to africa? If so, how much would it cost roughly?

Hello Josef Business class upgrade is approximately $5500 / person. When you call to book we would do the upgrade and advise the exact fare. Need your dates to be more precise, I am sorry.

More Questions and Answers

Q:

I live in Kinshasa, DRC, and my fiance lives in Khartoum, Sudan, is it possible for you to book our travel from our locations in Africa? It doesn't make sense that we would have to fly back to the USA when we are half way there!

Carolina M.  asked on  Nov 14, 2012

A:

Hi Carolina. Yes, we'd be able to assist, but since you aren't departing from a North American city you'd need to contact us directly at info@africaanswers.com and we can give you the pricing. Thank you.

Q:

What does the ELEPHANT INTERACTION include? If not included can you add the option of an elephant back ride? Thanks.

Leah R.  asked on  Nov 12, 2012

A:

At elephant interaction you learn about and meet 6 'ellies' and learn not only their stories but all about elephant behavior. They are incredibly smart animals and its great to get up so close. You can add a ride for about $50.

Q:

WE would love to go but have a trip planned already for this time. What do you think the rate will be in the summer time ? Will it be the same kind of trip?

 asked on  Nov 12, 2012

A:

Hi Ronda The price is as on the Groupon page, $4518. We often have other packages advertised on Groupon so probably best to wait for another special.

Q:

Is this deal for one person or two people?

Blaine J.  asked on  Nov 12, 2012

A:

Price is per person, based on 2 people traveling together and sharing a room, so each traveler needs to buy a Groupon. Solo travelers will pay a surcharge directly to Africa Answers.

Q:

Can we get this deal 12/21/2012 (over Christmas vacation)- 3 of us please.

Kalpana T.  asked on  Nov 12, 2012

A:

Not at the super special Groupon price - that only applies to the dates listed. You can travel over Christmas and we can arrange a similar itinerary if you contact us, but there will be a significant surcharge and space is already quite hard to find, so you'd need to be flexible with your dates. The Groupon is a fantastic deal and offers huge savings as indicated - if you travel during applicable dates.

Q:

Hi, I have a few questions. 1) Since it is an independent trip, Can I stay in Johannesburg the whole trip? 2) How much would it be to change my departure date from SA to a later date? 3) Do I need to secure a SA visa before arriving to SA? if so, does your travel agency helps with that or are we supposed to take care of it ourselves? Thanks!

MARY I.  asked on  Nov 12, 2012

A:

If what you need is just airfare to and from Johannesburg, it doesn't make sense to buy this package, really. You'll be paying for arrangements you won't use. We can book air tickets. If you are a US citizen vacationing in South Africa, your entry permit will be issued on arrival and there is no charge for that. You don't need our help, you just need a passport with 2 blank visa pages and at least 6 month's validity from your return date.

Q:

Hi, is there a way to add your best of Egypt tour after this and fly home from there? Thank you.

Leah R.  asked on  Nov 12, 2012

A:

The air routing that we use for this Groupon package does not allow stopovers anywhere but South Africa. Being specialists and sellers of travel to Africa, we able to arrange and book anything you like, but the Groupon package cannot include Egypt, no. Feel free to contact us if you still want to combine Egypt and South Africa. 866-427-2540

Q:

If I am not able to get off from work, as I am a teacher and there are not days that coincide with my vacations, could I cancel my groupon?

Jennifer D.  asked on  Nov 12, 2012

Please contact Groupon with that question; until you actually redeem your voucher with us, Groupon's terms and conditions apply.

Q:

If I do not have a person to go with, would I be able to book a trip date 3/1/13-3/31/13 that has other people already in it? Also, will I still only be paying the $2500?

Jennifer D.  asked on  Nov 12, 2012

A:

Hi Jennifer. This is an independent trip so you choose your own dates. You are not joining a group and I am not able to match you with other travelers, I 'm sorry. The package includes transfers everywhere so you will always be taken care of, and the only time that you will be left to your own devices are the days where you don't add day touring. It would be possible to fill every day and that way you would be with a small group of people from all over the place - different people every day, however.
