Question Africa Routing with ANA Award

Help,

This service is not available for the specified itinerary. Please amend the flight criteria and try again.
I am quite sure that I have not adhered to the ANA routing for this itinerary. What am I doing wrong here? Too long? Crossing something?

DXB-CAI
CAI-ACC
ACC-JNB
JNB-NBO
NBO-DXB

Can I do that?

I even tried a big circle here:

NBO-CAI
CAI-ACC
ACC-JNB
JNB-NBO

The main 2 routes that I want to capture with awards are:

ACC-JNB and JNB to NBO

Trying to stay on South African and EgyptAir exclusively.

Thanks,
Keith

I searched.
Following is bookable in business. It costs 55000miles + 62800JPY.

09Apr DXBCAI MS902 1155 1335
10Apr CAIACC MS881 0815 1240
14Apr ACCJNB SA57 2220 0605+1
17Apr JNBNBO SA184 1010 1505
17Apr NBOADD ET307 1915 2125
17Apr ADDDXB ET600 2145 0255+1

Only one stopover is permitted other than a destination.
Above itinerary has a destination (JNB) and one stopover (ACC).

BTW, I can't believe 20min connection time at ADD is permitted.
So, I checked. Unbelievably, ET-ET (int-int) MCT at ADD is really 20min.

For Only SA and MS,
following flights are bookable.

09Apr DXBCAI MS902 1155 1335
10Apr CAIACC MS881 0815 1240
14Apr ACCJNB SA57 2220 0605+1
17Apr JNBNBO SA184 1010 1505
18Apr NBOCAI MS850 0425 0810
18Apr CAIDXB MS912 0935 1500
55000miles + 79970JPY in business class.

Ahhhhhh, that's it Wasabi. Thank you. Too many stopovers. The 3 legs that I really need are the CAI- ACC, the ACC-JNB and the JNB-NBO but it is not round trip.
