Whether to use own air miles for flights to Africa or use OAT packaged air

Jump to last reply

Would like to hear your thoughts regarding whether to use own air miles for a safari tour with OAT or to go with the OAT pre-arranged flight schedule from US to Africa. Although one can save about $2,500 using own airmiles, my thought is that the scheduled flights going through OAT are much better....shorter flights, fewer transfer of planes and shorter layover times. So, my thought is, is it worth saving the $2,500 RT for the added aggravation of longer flight times/layover times and the possibility that one might not connect with their group at final destination. I guess that some would say to definitely go with the savings while others would say that it's worth paying more for peace of mind with no hastles or possible aggravations.

Thought/comments ????
