Did you mean flights from Victoria Falls to Johannesburg?

Most travelers flying to the town of Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe are doing so for one reason – the visit to Victoria Falls itself, the famous waterfall on the Zambezi River, one of the largest and most spectacular waterfalls in the world. The explorer David Livingstone named the falls after Queen Victoria, but the local tribes call it Mosi-o-Tunya, “the Smoke that Thunders” – with the spray and mist rising to over 400 meters and the noise heard from 24 miles away, visitors soon find out why!

Victoria Falls Information

After the urban sprawl and traffic of Johannesburg, a visit to Victoria Falls offers the chance to escape into the wonders of nature – and wonders of nature do not come much more spectacular than Victoria Falls! As well as a tour of Victoria Falls themselves, you may also like to take a helicopter trip over the falls, enjoying spectacular views over the surrounding area.

For a calmer experience, you could enjoy a boat trip on the Zambezi River, with a sunset cruise being a particularly romantic experience. A tour of the National Park Mosi-oa-Tunya is also recommended, with the chance to see animals such as giraffes, zebras, and antelopes.
