Taita is located in the heart of Zambia, downriver from the mighty Victoria Falls and a short drive from Livingstone.
The nearest airport is just outside Livingstone and from there it’s a 45 minute drive to Taita Falcon. Your step-by-step guide for getting to Taita Falcon Lodge is as follows:
You can fly directly into Livingstone Airport from Johannesburg, Lusaka, and other regional centers. Scheduled and chartered airlines fly into Livingstone, including British Airways, South African Airways, Air Kenya (Via Nairobi to Cape Town), S.A Air-link from Nelspruit.
Scheduled and charter airlines also fly into Victoria Falls Airport (over the border in Zimbabwe) so note that additional transfer charges apply and you’ll need Zimbabwean visas for most nationalities.
