A to Z Travel Blog - Zambia

Updated: Mar 10

High up on my travel list, was to see the incredible Wonders of the World. Did you know there are now several Wonder of the world lists? From the original Wonders of the World to the Natural Wonders of the World and everything in between. I was excited to see Victoria Falls with its thundering waterfall on the great Zambezi River, Africa. During wet season is the best time to see this incredible wonder. Much so that the African people who live around the falls call it Mosi-oa-Tunya which means "smoke that thunders".

Getting To Zambia

We flew with Virgin Airlines as part of a multi-centre holiday including Sun City, Zambia, and Cape Town including transfers too.

It was a dream come true to go on a safari, see Victoria Falls, visit Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden, and much more.

With the add-on one 1-hour domestic flight from Edinburgh connecting in London Heathrow, from here it was a further 11 hours to Johannesburg.

The flight was very comfortable and the service was really good, with up-to-date in-flight entertainment.

After a few days' stay at Sun City, it was time for our long-awaited visit to Victoria Falls.

The direct flight between Johannesburg and Livingstone, Zambia with South African Airways is a short flight just under 2 hours.

I'm sad to report that at the time of writing SAA (South African Airways) is close to collapse.
