Travelers can either drive or fly from Lusaka between the reserves. If your safari includes South Luangwa park then you can also fly to Mfuwe International Airport (MFU). Visitors whose safari includes a visit to Victoria Falls can fly in or out of Livingstone Airport (LVI), which is located close to the falls. It’s usually the local tour operator who arranges pick-ups from the airport, as well as further transportation as part of the safari package.
