We will be visiting SA from UK in 2021 and thought of flying into Jo'burg and then 2 - 3 days at Vic Falls.  Unfortunately plane lands at about 7am so don't want to be hanging around the airport all day.  Do they do short excursions and if so which airline do they use.  looking at cost of return flight as will probably book hotel direct.  Not at all keen on flying Air Zimbabwe.  Also there is the cost factor. 

I have been to Vic Falls several times previously, but not by air and in the late sixties and early seventies so have no idea of cost today.

After that it is to be hoped we will visit Mala Mala Game Reserve and then onto Dbn, then CT for a week and back to Dbn before leaving for the UK again.

Any input would be welcomed.  Thanks.

Why not fly from Jo'burg to Livingstone in Zambia, this is done by South African Airways and British Airways. Cost around R6000.00 per person return. Accommodation in Livingstone is good as well.

Consider flying SA Airlink to Kasane - 1.5 hours. They do day trips to Vic Falls by road. Big choice of hotels in Kasane area.

Slower and lower is better than higher and faster!

My son works for COMAIR. That is Kulula and British Airlines, they do fly there.

My daughter works for Mango Airlines and they fly to Zanzibar so should cover the falls as well.

Many thanks for the links.  Using Google when located in the UK to search ZA sites can be difficult as it reverts to all sorts of weird and wonderful permutations.  The last time I visited Zambia in '66 they weren't exactly friendly.  laughing

I have recently found out that a former BSAP colleague runs a B&B at Vic Falls so looks like we have accommodation.  Seems flights are about R4500 on average.

Then is R6k not bad for an entire package...everything included....hotel, transport fees etc.

I have always driven up to Vic Falls so this will be the first time flying.  Not sure how reliable a train trip will be plus as we are only in southern Africa for a month, it would be too time consuming, but thanks for heads up.  laughing

You'll also need a Yellow Fever vaccine ... can be done @ ORTambo if you arrive early enough.

Note: This is a live vaccine - so if you have any medical issues - particularly heart related then you should apply for an exemption. 

In my case I stood better chance of taking the risk of catching yellow fever and fighting it than definitely getting it pumped into me and seeing how I respond...
