Traditionally guests wishing to see the region’s three major attractions – Cape Town, Kruger National Park and Victoria Falls – have had to take a multitude of unnecessary flights and waste a night in Johannesburg.

There is a direct route from Kruger Mpumulanga International Airport to Livingstone Airport (the gateway to Victoria Falls), eliminating the need to stay in Johannesburg, however this route does only operate three times a week. This saves you time and money and allows you to make the most of your African adventure, but please speak to one of our expert consultants.
