Mumbai is a cosmopolitan city and the capital of the state of Maharashtra. Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport (BOM) is well connected with several destinations across the globe. It has several flights connecting with many African cities as well. Given below are suggestions on how to reach Africa from Mumbai.
By Air: The Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport (BOM) is the second busiest airport in the country. There are several flights connecting Mumbai with major cities in Africa. Major airlines flying passengers to these destinations includes, Air India, Turkish Airlines, Etihad, Egypt Air, Royal Air Maroc, Air France, British Airways, Qatar Airlines, Alitalia, Saudia, Jet Airways, Lufthansa, Emirates, Ethiopian Airlines, Gulf Air, Air Algerie, RwandAir, etc.
By Rail: There are no train routes that connect Delhi with Africa presently. Reasons are obvious. Once you’ve reached your chosen destination by flight then you may use the railway transport in these countries. Although, travelling by trains may not be the best choice when it comes to getting around in Africa. The lines are old with very little maintenance. Some countries do have a developed railway link. Like Egypt where trains are used for public transportations and have air-conditioned carriages. Morocco is also developing its rail network with French-styled high speed rail. In Kenya there is the Mombasa-Nairobi-Kisumu track that is popularly used by tourists for viewing the wildlife in the region.
By Road: There are no roads connecting Delhi to any of the African countries. It may be possible to visualize a hypothetical route that would connect from Delhi till Africa but it is not practical. Crossing most of the borders along the way is not a small feat. The documentations alone could take a lifetime. Road transport is the best option when it comes to travelling within the African cities and countries. It is also possible to drive a rented car to get around many cities but it would be highly expensive. The best form of travel within these countries is definitely by road. A shared taxi, buses or the local forms of local transport like the tuk-tuk, Matatus, etc.
