Cheap Flights from Johannesburg to Mombasa

Since 1time airline stopped flying from Johannesburg to Mombasa (Kenya), one has had to sukkel to get there. Pak Africa Aviation is in the process of reviving 1time from its grave, but they've made no mention of flying to Mombasa. Out of the 1-stops RwandAir and Kenya Airways are often cheapest, but keep an eye out for flight duration, as you could easily end up spending 5 hours at Kigali or Nairobi Airport.

Best & Cheapest Holiday

4 October 2013 : The Sanjay Singh family wrote to tell us about their holiday in Mombasa:

I'm writing to send in a brief experience on what I would say is the best and most cheapest Budget Holiday Experince, Ive had in my entire life, and definitely would recommend. It was in July 2011, and we had been desperately seeking budget destinations to Zanzibar from Durban. Obviously when my wife's leave at the local hospital was not confirmed we lost out on ALL the cheap vacations which ranged from R6500 to R9000 per person for us, and slightly cheaper for our two kids, aged 11 and 15. By chance I saw Africastay advertise their launch for Mombassa, at Sentido, and fell off my chair when I saw the price of R21500 for our family of four including taxes, flights from JHB and accommodation and return transfers, as well as ALL meals. Well, we grabbed the opportunity at once and paid the full amount on Monday, a week before we could leave. We received our flight bookings from JHB to Kenya on Wednesday and then on Friday we received our Hotel vouchers and was surprised to see it upgraded to a 4 star at the last minute. We did enquire and were politely told that Sentido Netunes, was closer and also higher standard than wat we originally booked. They even booked us in at 1 night at the Airport Hotel in Boksburg at R900 a night for our family and even arranged our breakfast due to the early flights. Our flight on One-time was most pleasant as we enjoyed the hospitality and attention we got. Snacks were to our taste as we are hindus. All was well arranged, a big thank you to Africa Stay. At Mombassa Airport we breezed through and thanks to the friendly flight attendants, our reception into Kenya only took a few minutes. Our ride was in a real luxury SUV and wow, the reception at the hotel was more than 5 stars. Once again thanks to Africa stay and One-time and All that made this holiday the best in our entire lives. The owners,chefs and management went really out of their way to accommodate ALL our dietary requirements and that of our kids. Thanks. We still have a pic with the owners (?) and will treasure it ALWAYS. Our stay was the BEST. Our return journey on One-Time, a pity they are not in existence anymore, was the best and we didn't even feel the long ride and journey back to JHB.
