We all travel, but traveling with our latest cars is amazing. Meeting diverse cultures across the Pearl of Zimbabwe, and encountering wild animals up close in their natural habitat is magical!

At the prestigious AZTA awards (Association of Zimbabwe Travel Agents) held at Cresta Lodge on 10 September 2022 Nyati Travel did it again!

Our co-director and travel manager Vivian Vashibe became first in the category “The consultant who follows the rules”. This much sought-after award is sponsored by all airlines operating in Zimbabwe.

Makorokoto Vivian!

Our co-director and financial manager Maxwell Masiya received an award for his work in the AZTA committee. He also went home with a raffle price: 2 nights Lokuthula for 6 people. Thank you Africa Albida.
Amhlope Maxwell!

Airlink’s flights will operate daily using a modern 98-seat Embraer E-190 jetliner and are scheduled to conveniently connect with its other services to and from its Johannesburg main base as well as to long-haul flights provided by Airlink’s growing number of global partner airlines.

“Victoria Falls is a jewel in the region’s tourism crown and Airlink is looking forward to re-establishing connectivity between the attraction and Johannesburg. This brand new Airlink route will be our second to Victoria Falls, which we already serve from Cape Town.

“In addition, we provide direct flights connecting Harare with Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban and between Bulawayo and Johannesburg. With the recent introduction of long-haul flights from Europe directly to Victoria Falls, our services allow customers arriving on those flights to conveniently include South African destinations in their travel plans,” explains Rodger Foster, Airlink CEO and managing director.

Dear Valued Traveller,

We, at Nyati travel, are delighted that the Zimbabwean government has eased Covid-19-related travel restrictions, including the cancelling of the mandatory quarantine.

The government announced on January 28 that the mandatory quarantine had been lifted for fully vaccinated visitors to Zimbabwe, although a negative Covid-19 test taken within 48 hours of departure for Zimbabwe is still required for entry.

We hope this move will herald the start of a buoyant 2022 for tourism, and operators are looking forward to once again welcoming visitors from around the globe to the destination.

The announcement by the Government of Zimbabwe in respect of the easing of restrictions relating to Covid-19 is so important as to be viewed as a lifesaver for tourism.

The pent-up demand for Zimbabwe and the region can now be unlocked, and the impact should be incredibly positive for all in the travel, tourism and hospitality sector.

Warm regards,

The Nyati Travel Team
