New flight routes – 2 new routes open up the safari circuit

Two new flights have recently been announced which will have a huge impact on the incentive industry in Southern Africa. At a time where clients are more budget conscious, and where length of stay has been reduced, they allow for direct connections between Cape Town and Victoria Falls, Zambia. And also Cape Town and Hoedspruit Airport, Mpumalanga, which means less traveling time for guests.
