Last week, I told you how to get from Europe to India with Lufthansa First Class for less than EUR 2,000. Today, I’ll show you how you can get to Botswana (or any other African country south of the Sahara) in business class for EUR 1,500 roundtrip.

To use this promotion, you should first open an account with LifeMiles if you haven’t already. Then, register for the promotion between Sep 19th to Sep 26th here. You then have to wait 24 hours to make sure that your bonus is activated and you can buy the miles on Lifemiles.com between Sep 20th and Sep 27th 2016.

If you check the Lifemiles Award Chart, you’ll see that Europe to South Africa is 55,000 miles one-way (+ taxes).
Here we’re talking about the “South Africa Region”, not the country. Lifemiles defines South Africa Region as all the following countries:
|Angola||Guinea||Sao Tomas and Príncipe|
|Cape Verde||Madagascar||South Sudan|
|Central African||Malawi||St. Helena|
|Democratic Republic of Congo||Namibia||Uganda|
So you could fly from Europe to Johannesburg and connect to Gaborone, Botswana with South African Airlines in Business class for a 55,000 miles + EUR 150 one way. You could return with Ethiopian via Addis Abeba.
So remember the procedure:
- Create an account with LifeMiles
