Difference between Livingstone and Victoria Falls airport and Namibia?

by Stephen
(North Carolina)

We are arriving at LVI and staying on the Zambia side but will cross into Zimbabwe to see the Falls from both sides. Two questions:


When we depart we will fly to JNB. We can fly from VFA or LVI - is one airport better than the other for departures (easier/faster/more efficient etc.? We also have the choice of flying FastJet, Airline, or SAA. Is one of those more reliable than the others?

Is it possible to visit Botswana and Namibia on a day trip? I understand that we could probably get to Kasane and take a boat ride on the Chobe River and I saw an old report of people being able to cross into Namibia. Is that possible as a day trip if we left in the morning?

Thank you for any assistance you can offer.
Stephen

Hi Stephen

Thank you for contacting us.
In response to your first question. The airports are pretty much the same, with regards to ease and efficiency, so I don't see there being any difference between VFA or LVI other than the logistics of transfers and possible visa fees as well as the price of the flights.

2nd Question again no apparent difference between any of these flights. They are both fairly reliable. Fastjet planes probably a bit older.

3rd question you can do a trip to Namibia from Kasane, not sure why you would want to do this though. The trip is to Impalila island and a village tour. If you wanted to get the stamp in your passport then yes you could do this. If you are doing a river cruise on the Chobe river then you are basically seeing Namibia, which is on the opposing bank.

Hope that helps

Tony
