Getting There – Zambia
Travel restrictions and additional entry requirements may apply for Zambia due to the coronavirus pandemic and if so, can change from day-to-day. Please visit our coronavirus page to stay informed about the latest developments.
Zambia’s main airport is Kenneth Kaunda International Airport (LUN), located 14km/9mi from the capital, Lusaka. From Lusaka, you can fly or drive between reserves. If your safari is combined with a visit to Victoria Falls, you will most likely fly in or out of Harry Mwanga Nkumbula International Airport (LVI), just outside of Livingstone and close to the falls. In most cases, your local tour operator will arrange pickup from the airport and organize further transportation as part of your safari package.
