Two New Ways to Travel the Johannesburg-Victoria Falls Route
by Faniso Zimunya
The month of August has seen the introduction of a new service by low cost air carrier FlyAfrica (www.flyafrica.com). The airline launched its maiden flight from Johannesburg (South Africa) to Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe) on August 1st 2014. The flight did experience some delays as they were supposed to have their first flight in late July, but on the launch date everything went without a hitch.
FlyAfrica started with three flights a week on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. They are now adding Mondays to their schedule. Currently, they are only offering the Victoria Falls-Johannesburg flights, but plans are in the works to add Harare, Bulawayo, Lusaka, and Maputo to their list of destinations. To book your ticket, visit www.flyafrica.co.za.
Intercape Coaches introduced their Livingstone/VF - Johannesburg bus ride on August 3rd of 2014. The weekly service does a Johannesburg to Victoria Falls (and on to Livingstone) run on Sundays at 9am, and goes from Johannesburg to Livingstone via Victoria Falls on Fridays at 9am. The 1300km trip up to Victoria Falls (then another 15km to Livingstone town, Zambia) takes about a day as the bus also goes through Hwange and Bulawayo.
