British Airways recently announced that they were stopping their direct London Heathrow to Lusaka, Zambia flight – the last flight departs Heathrow on the 25 October. However, this should not deter people from considering going to Zambia for their safari holiday, as you are missing out on a wonderful wildlife experience. Not to mention the spectacular scenery, the opportunity to top or tail your trip to Victoria Falls, one of the 7 Wonders of the World, and for the more adventurous, the chance to do a 3-4 night walking safari into the bush, sleeping out under canvas with just the sounds of the wild to lull you to sleep.
You can still fly with BA or South African Airways direct to Johannesburg overnight, and then connect with a morning flight from Johannesburg onto Lusaka with South African Airlines, which is just 2 hours. Currently, the flight from Johannesburg to Lusaka departs at 1030, and lands at 1230.
Otherwise, you can also consider flying with Emirates via Dubai and then onto Lusaka, or Kenya Airways via Nairobi and onto Lusaka.
KLM also offer a flight schedule via Amsterdam and Harare.
