By Air
The month of August has seen the introduction of a new service by low cost air carrier FlyAfrica ( 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.

By Bus

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.

We recently used flyafrica for our trip to and from Victoria Falls and were more than satisfied with all aspects of our flight. Price wise we saved a huge amount which we used toward our Elephant Safari! This airline really deserves everyone's support.

Not Operational
by: Tony

Since these posts, FlyAfrica went bust and let down a lot of passengers, they are obviously no longer in operation. Fastjet another low cost carrier are talking of introducing flights, but at the moment 8th March 2016, SAA, BA and Air Zimbabwe are the only airlines flying into Victoria Falls Zimbabwe.
