We had a fascinating tour of the new airport yesterday, lead by Mr Ronnie Masawi, the current Airport Manager.  It is impressive, to say the least !

Separate levels for arrivals and departures, significant increase in immigration and customs service centres and a large drop ‘n ‘ go parking area will surely mean a smoother, faster airport transition for visitors through Vic Falls

All in all a very interesting, exciting day. This new airport will have a dramatic effect on tourism, not only to Victoria Falls, but to the region as a whole. We hope to have another tour in February 2015 to see the final phases before the proposed completion date of July 2015
