*see UPDATE below* Uganda, named as top tourist destination in 2012 by Lonely Planet and country that is recently opening for more casual tourists is possible to visit for incredible fare thanks to Brussels Airlines. Again you have to look for roundtrip flights when leaving Newcastle in UK to Entebbe, which is close to Kampala, capital of this African country. Roundtrip flights are available already for £281 (€254)! This deal should be still considered by a bit more experienced travellers and we can not recommend to book the flights to those who haVE not visited Africa before. (If you still want to go to this part of Africa we would suggest to visit Kenya, please check the deal we posted today here).
*UPDATE* – Experienced travellers may consider new travel options available at this amazing fare. Mainly within April and May 2015 (first date of departure is 30th of March 2015) you may again fly cheap to Uganda or Rwanda when departing from Newcastle (NCL). Please refer to the booking samples below.
If interested you should look for travel dates between Monday to Friday. The easiest way to check your connection possibilities is through Skyscanner. This tool gives you quickly a rough idea which low-cost airlines are connecting your home town.
Cruising Lake Victoria and spotting Mountain Gorillas (expect very high charges for this attraction) are the top things to do in Uganda. Again please look for travel dates between September and December 2014. For a higher fare you may also travel up to the end of May 2015. In any case please read carefully all requirements and mandatory vaccination (such as Yellow Fewer) before you book this deal.

Apart of the flights to Uganda you may also consider to visit another country in this region of Africa – Rwanda. This country is becoming more and more safetier recetly and Kigali is one of the most clean cities in Africa (and probably cleaner than many European cities as well..) Still, please look up and read carefully all restrictions and possible danger in the destination before you book this ticket.
