Airlink is a regional feeder airline connecting the major cities of Southern Africa with smaller towns and eco-leisure destinations in the subregion. Using Airlink’s unique combination of flights it’s possible to travel, for example, from Johannesburg (or Cape Town) to Nelspruit’s Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport (KMIA) to enjoy a lowveld bush safari, then travel to the majestic Victoria Falls in Livingstone (Zambia), then onwards to Cape Town. 

Alternatively, a road transfer connects you to Kasane in Botswana to experience an African river safari on the Chobe River. From Kasane you have the option to travel beyond to the Okavango Delta and then from Maun to Johannesburg (or Cape Town) to connect with your international flight. Or, for a shorter itinerary, fly direct from Kasane to Johannesburg.

For travellers looking to experience a combined bush and beach break, connect on Airlink from Johannesburg to Skukuza — the gateway to the Kruger Park and the adjacent Sabi Sands. After that, hop via Nelspruit KMIA to Vilanculos, Mozambique, and experience the exotic Bazaruto and Benguerra islands. Vilanculos is also serviced daily out of Johannesburg.
