Sabi Sand Game Reserve and Victoria Falls - Zambia.
7 day itinerary.
Prices on request
Many tourists combine their holiday in South Africa with 2 or 3 nights at Victoria Falls by flying into either Zambia or Zimbabwe. Both countries are serviced by daily direct flights from Johannesburg, and the flights take just over 2 hours.
The airport to fly to is Livingstone (airport code LVI). The town of Livingstone itself is an historic colonial city, and is situated only about 10 km from the Falls themselves. The majority of accommodation here is not in the town itself, rather it is spread along the Zambezi River. Road transfers can be arranged from the airport to the many hotels on the Zambian side of the Falls, so visitors do not need to worry about getting taxis or hiring cars.
For people wanting to easily combine the Zambia side of the Vic Falls with a Kruger safari, there is a service run by SAA that operates directly from Kruger Mpumalanga/Nelspruit (airport code MQP) to Livingstone, which currently operates on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. This avoids safari goers having to stay overnight or connect in Johannesburg prior to flying to Livingstone.
This means you can go on a game drive and enjoy breakfast at your bush lodge before flying to Livingstone and ending your day with an evening sunset cruise on the Zambezi - not a bad way to spend a day, really! For people travelling from Livingstone to Kruger, they can enjoy a walk to the Falls in the morning, then breakfast and mid-morning activities before flying down to Kruger to enjoy dinner and the first night in the bush.
The SAA flights departs Kruger/Nelspruit at just before midday, and takes just over 2 hours to arrive at Livingstone. The return flight departs Livingstone at early afternoon, arriving in Nelspruit Kruger just before 5 pm. Please note these times are subject to change.
All travellers passing through South Africa AFTER travelling to Zambia no longer are required to have a yellow fever vaccination certificate.
The airport to fly to is Victoria Falls (airport code VFA). Again, road transfers can be arranged from the airport to the many hotels. The town of Victoria Falls itself is about 10 minutes from the Falls, and is small but busy, and has several craft markets where visitors can buy souvenirs and locally made trinkets.
