Direct flight: Kenya to Victoria Falls

We have many enquiries from people wanting to visit Africa once and see two of the most famous highlights in the same trip, namely the great annual migration and Victoria Falls. Kenya Airways have now made this possible by offering a direct flight from Nairobi to Livingston. Why not combine the migration in the Masai Mara (July-Oct) with a visit to Victoria Falls.

Here is the announcement:   Kenya Airways is to launch new flights to Livingstone Zambia, it's second destination in the country.Flights start on June 2, 2013 and will operate three times weekly via Harare. The city of Livingstone joins the airline's network of destinations as it works on growing the routes to over 115 by the year 2021, as forecast in the airline's 10 year growth strategy. Kenya Airways already flies to Zambia's capital, Lusaka.

The new route mainly targets tourist traffic to Victoria Falls whilst also strengthening Kenya Airways' presence in Africa.The lack of strong national carriers in the southern region has created an opportunity for KQ to connect passengers from these countries to other cities in Africa and beyond. The main competitors in the region include South African Airways and Ethiopian Airways. Both airlines already serve Zambia with Ethiopian Airways expected to launch flights to Ndola later this year. (Ndolais the third largest city and commercial capital of Zambia).
