Fly Kruger to Vic Falls direct

Posted by


Good news for those wanting to combine travel to 2 of the top holiday destinations in Southern Africa: Kruger Park and Victoria Falls. So on the same day as your morning game drive in the Sabi Sand, you could be showered by the spray from the mighty Victoria Falls in the late afternoon. What a way to combine two of the most sought after experiences by travellers and adventurers to Southern Africa. Start with a luxury Big Five and finish off with some by experiencing the magic and energy of the mystical “smoke that thunders.”


Icon Expeditions is proud to be the first operator to be able to bring a unique direct connection between these two legendary destinations. In addition, they have pioneered a routing between Lanseria Airport just north of Johannesburg, and Skukuza Airport. This flight ties in with the Skukuza-Livingstone flight, thus also running twice a week in each direction. Both these routings are exclusive to Icon Expeditions. The flights are operated by Sefofane Air Charters, one of Southern Africa’s top air charter companies with an excellent service and exemplary safety record.



Other airlines may fly out of Kruger Mpumalanga Airport (near Nelspruit) but Icon operates from Skukuza Airport, bringing you the utmost in convenience. Skukuza is located in the heart of Kruger National Park, just 30 minutes away from many of the lodges in the Sabi Sands, much closer than Kruger Mpumalanga Airport. This means that you can arrive at your lodge in time for an evening game drive and leave after a morning game drive, thus maximising your !

    Some amazing pictures here. I especially like the one of the Lion, he looks all scraggly! Would love to visit Victoria falls next time I am in that area, I didn’t get chance the last time I was near.

    Don’t miss it next time! It really is special: difficult to describe the incredible energy that the Falls emit. And just to witness the sheer majesty of the whole scene is quite something. Plus plenty of exciting activities to do there too.

    I’m planning on visiting the Falls soon. What would the best period be for flying out there. It didn’t know there are activities to do there.

    Now is a good time. The water level is low, so good visibility, not too much spray and drizzle. There is plenty to do there, it is adventure central: river rafting, bungy jump, gorge swing, canoe trips, microlight flights, helicopter flights, elephant encounters, sundowner cruise and the list goes on. Enjoy!
