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.

Flight schedule from 15 August:

 

4Z 494Depart Johannesburg/ 11.30amArrive Victoria Falls/ 1.15pm
4Z 495Depart Victoria Falls/ 1.55pmArrive Johannesburg/ 3.35pm

A humorous glimpse of the history of our great nation.

Zimbabwe ranks among the best countries to visit on Lonely Planet’s list. The ranking, compiling some of the most beautiful destinations in the world, had this to say:

A journey to Zimbabwe will take you through an attractive patchwork of landscapes, from high-veld, balancing boulders and flaming msasa trees, to laid-back towns, lush mountains and lifeblood rivers.

Here you can spot the Big Five (leopard, lion, rhino, elephant and buffalo) in its national parks, discover World Heritage–listed archaeological sites and stand in awe of one of the natural wonders of the world, Victoria Falls.

We’re also super proud to see Zimbabwe ranked the highest of all African countries on National Geographic’s Cool List Of 2019. This is what the National Geographic had to say:

Victoria Falls and the surrounding area have always enjoyed the lion’s share of the attention, and for good reason.
As well as the beautiful falls themselves, the Zambezi flows through gorges and over rapids that are perfect for those after an adrenaline rush.

There’s plenty more to see if you head to the two primary wildlife hotspots: Hwange National Park and Mana Pools National Park. Don’t miss Gonarezhou National Park for amazing wildlife-viewing!

We couldn’t be more pleased that Zimbabwe topped ranking as one of the top countries to visit in Africa, and in the world.

If any of those destinations whet your appetite for travel, feel free to get in touch with us here and we’ll be happy to chat. We would love to tailor a trip for you for any of the above destinations, so don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.

The 5 Best Zimbabwe Tours and Experiences

We like to thank the people of Nyati for the wonderful trip we have made in their country. The programme was varied and highly interesting. We stayed at some wonderful places, specific mention deserve Rhino Camp at Matusadona and Norma Jeane’s at Lake Mtirikwe. And we should mention our driver John, who became a real friend during our 2½ weeks together. Actually, we met friendly and supportive people throughout the country; quite a feat in view of the rather strenuous economic situation of Zimbabwe.
Not only did we visit the more famous highlights of the country (Parks and Wildlife, Victoria Falls), Nyati also showed us the roots. We visited an old township in Bulawayo, and we had a walk in a characteristic rural area. We observed the efforts made to save the rhino (unfortunately, here we could have wished for a more friendly guide).

All-in-all, unforgettable holidays that we like to repeat in a not too far future!
