Delta-KLM Los Angeles to Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania $884 August to November 2015

Tanzania has been a destination on my mind this past year, perhaps even more than South Africa as a place I’d like to visit in Africa. Tanzania has come up a couple of times on Loyalty Traveler when I wrote about Hyatt hotels in Zanzibar and near the interior National Parks of Tanzania popular for wildlife viewing safaris.

Emirates announced a sale this week ending May 17 with fares at $1,699 all-in for two passengers from Los Angeles or San Francisco or seven other U.S. airports to Dar Es Salaam, Cape Town, Durban, Johannesburg or Nairobi.

Delta-KLM Los Angeles to Dar Es Salaam $884

I have had my eye on Dar Es Salaam airfare the past couple of months and this week is the first time I have seen the fare drop under $1,000 round trip from California. Now Delta-KLM has dropped the fare to $885 from Los Angeles and $935 from San Francisco to Dar Es Salaam DAR, Tanzania from mid-August through November for departures Sunday to Wednesday.
