Getting into Zimbabwe is generally by air, with international travellers flying first into O.R. Tambo Airport in South Africa before transferring into Zimbabwe. There are flights between Johannesburg and Victoria Falls or Harare airports. Aside from being the main access point to the wilderness areas of northern Zimbabwe, Victoria Falls is also our national operational base and the hub for Wilderness Air, our own “bush airline.”
Wilderness Air - How it Works
Wilderness Air is a key element of your safari experience, flying you between remote bush camps and then back to international airports for onward connections. The service is more than a simple connection however; rather, the aerial transfers between camps allow a totally different impression and appreciation of the country below – from the savannah mosaic of Hwange or the winding Zambezi River, to the majestic grandeur and scale of Victoria Falls.
Victoria Falls is also home to Wilderness Touring, our touring and transfer business that enhances any visit to the area whether sightseeing, shopping or enjoying cultural activities.
Benefits of Wilderness Air
In operation since 1991, and with an impeccable safety record, Wilderness Air offers scheduled transfers between Wilderness camps and the regional hubs and also a private charter service using a varied fleet of light aircraft. These aircraft are perfectly suited to operating in remote bush conditions and include the Cessna 206, the Cessna 210 and the Cessna 208B (Grand Caravan). Wilderness Air is owned and operated by Wilderness Safaris.
