This is the 2nd time we have posted a deal to Kilimanjaro and the first time we have found one from Los Angeles. It is pretty normal for this route to go for about $2,000 in coach! Kilimanjaro is obviously famous for the mountain but it is also a good base for a safari. If you plan on climbing Kili, train and train again. Also find a reliable guide company!
And yes, we know Turkish Airlines has a fare for about the same price. But it is a W fare and earns no miles with anyone but Turkish Airlines.
Sample Travel Date:
- November 16th – 22nd
- Valid for travel from October 30th – December 18th or December 25th – March 28th, 2014. Must purchase by March 31st, 2014
How to Search for Availability:
- Use ITA Software Matrix Airfare Search and flexible month search to see availability — enable advanced routing codes and enter “dtw ams” on the outbound field and enter “ams msp” on the return field to search for this fare. You can also try other combinations on the advanced routing code field like “jfk ams” and “ams atl” to see more availability. This fare is hidden and will not show up on ITA without first connecting in an US Delta hub (Detroit, Minneapolis, Atlanta or JFK) and Amsterdam.

- 20,730 miles or 5.7 cents per mile. KLM is a member of the SkyTeam Alliance and Delta partner. This fare will earn 100% mileage when crediting to Delta. Do not credit to the KLM Flying Blue program as it will only earn 25% with them.
