Which sites are you trying on? Have you tried changing your language and/or country of departure?

Go to a site like www.kayak.co.uk. They will let you input any departure airport.

Probably not worth it. By the time you factor in the cost of getting to the European airport on a separate ticket, any savings will have been eaten up and then some. Airlines like KLM make a business models of offering very attractive connecting fares, lower than flying direct from their hub airport.

Try looking at Ethiopian airlines from Brussels or Milan,with a connection in Addis,or Kenya airways with a Nairobi connection.

Personally I would go BA to Nairobi,and connect.Probably more reliable than the other 2.

Don't know when you ae planning to go, but we have used Thomson for a holiday in Mombassa. I think you can book air only from them. We found thm to be very reasonable and the flight was not half bad.

Try Kenya Airways, they fly from London, Paris and Amsterdam. Haven't used them for a while but one of the better African Carriers.

Most of the websites allow you to change your departure country from somewhere on their homepage

BA for example is to the right of "executive club"

KLM at the top of the page where it says - em - "change country and language".

But frankly I wouldn't risk it unless you are willing to stay overnight in your chosen departure country as the cost of missing the flight will be a brand new ticket at full price. And by staying overnight you lose most of the savings you are trying to make.
