Fly Airlink to the Victoria Falls
Most travellers dream of standing in front of the majestic Victoria Falls. There’s a reason this iconic destination has made it to the top of so many travel bucket lists: there are few sights more breath-taking than the Falls, one of the Seven Wonders of the Natural World. Known locally as Mosi-oa-Tunya (which means ‘The Smoke That Thunders’), the Victoria Falls is the world’s largest sheet of falling water.
The spectacular waterfall punctuates the mighty Zambezi River, Africa’s largest east-flowing river. After marvelling at the Falls, travellers can float down the beautiful Zambezi River on a houseboat, spending leisurely days taking in the stunning sights, like awe-inspiring sunsets and incredible wildlife in the water on the shore.
After exploring the Zambezi River, get closer to the wildlife at the world-famous Hwange National Park, one of Zimbabwe’s largest game reserves. Close to the edge of the Kalahari Desert, Hwange National Park is home to over 100 mammal species and over 400 bird species, and its population of African wild dogs is said to be one of the continent’s largest surviving packs. The park boasts other powerful predators like lions, leopards, cheetahs and hyenas. Be sure to take your camera to capture the incredible sightings Hwange National Park promises.
After an idyllic African safari, you can travel on to other nearby popular leisure destinations, like Chobe, the Okavango Delta, and the Kruger National Park. If you feel like a beach holiday after your stay in Hwange National Park, you can visit the jewels of the Indian Ocean, Mozambique’s beautiful Bazaruto or Benguerra islands.
Airlink’s direct flights from Cape Town to the Victoria Falls make it easier than ever to tick this incredible destination off your bucket list. Alternatively combine a bush safari with the Falls with Airlink’s direct flights from Nelspruit KMIA to Livingstone, for a holiday you will never forget.
