"I'm a travel junkie who's hooked on deals from YEG." - Chris Myden

Adventure travel: Edmonton to Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania (gateway to Zanzibar) - $984 to $1013 CAD roundtrip including taxes | add Europe for $15 more

Zanzibar

SWISS and Air Canada are having a battle with KLM over flight prices from from Edmonton to Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania.

SWISS and Air Canada = $984 CAD roundtrip including taxes.
KLM = $982 CAD roundtrip including taxes.

This is about 42% below the typical best roundtrip prices from Edmonton to Dar Es Salaam.

Dar Es Salaam is the gateway to Zanzibar. It costs about $35 to $50 USD to take the ferry from Dar Es Salaam to gorgeous Zanzibar (shown in the photo above).

On KLM, you can turn these into a '2-continents-in-1' trip (Europe & Africa), for about $15 more.

Fly from Edmonton to Amsterdam (non-stop), spend time in Europe, then fly from Amsterdam to Tanzania, spend time there, and fly back home to Edmonton - all for just $1028 CAD including taxes for all 3 flights. See instructions in the blog post below.

Availability for travel

October, November 2017
January, February 2018 (see update below)

How to find and book these flights

1. Go to Momondo

2. Search for a flight from Edmonton to Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania (DAR)

Try one of these example date combinations:

Oct 22 to Nov 6
Oct 23 to Nov 6
Oct 24, 25 to Nov 8
Oct 30 to Nov 13
Nov 6 to Nov 20
Nov 8 to Nov 22
Nov 13 to Nov 27
Nov 22 to Dec 6

You should be able to find quite a few other date combinations in October/November if you focus on Mon/Tue/Wed dates.

When you get to Momondo, if you click on 'Cheapest' it will probably show you the Air Canada / SWISS flights. If you click on 'Best' it will probably show you the KLM flights (which are quite a bit faster, for the extra $90).

Update 2/27 - KLM is now showing fares in January and February 2018 from Edmonton to Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania for $1013 CAD roundtrip including taxes.

1. Go to the KLM website

2. Search for a flight from Edmonton to Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania (DAR)

Try one of these date combinations:

DEPARTURE dates
Jan 14, 18
Jan 21, 22, 23, 25
Jan 28, 30

RETURN dates
Jan 27, 29, 31
Feb 5, 7, 12

NOTE: I've noticed that sometimes searching for these fares on the KLM website directly doesn't seem to work. It gives you an error message: 'Unfortunately no available flight(s) found.' and doesn't allow you to proceed.

But, oddly, if you put the same dates into the Kayak search engine and then click through to the KLM website, they show up. You still get the error message, but the fare shows up below it and you're able to click through and book it.

Here's an example Kayak search you can start with:

Kayak search: Feb 15 to Feb 28

On KLM, you can turn these into a '2-continents-in-1' trip (Europe & Africa), for about $15 more.

Fly from Edmonton to Amsterdam (non-stop), spend time in Europe, then fly from Amsterdam to Tanzania, spend time there, and fly back home to Edmonton - all for just $1028 CAD including taxes for all 3 flights.

1. Go to the KLM website

2. Click on 'Multi-City'

Try searching for a flight like this:

Edmonton (YEG) to Amsterdam (AMS)
Amsterdam (AMS) to Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania (DAR)
Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania (DAR) to Edmonton (YEG)

As for dates to use, try using start and end dates from the list in the section above this one.

You can play around with the middle date to give you more or less time in Amsterdam or Tanzania.
