South Africa (Johannesburg) . 2017 . May 17

This post is part of our South Africa / Zimbabwe / Botswana Trip Report and Itinerary. Do check out the full itinerary and our reviews here

Since we were in the African continent, we thought we would just make a quick trip to neighboring Zimbabwe to look at the world-renowned Victoria Falls, which was said to be even more massive and spectacular than the Niagara Falls.  Our flight from Johannesburg to Zimbabwe was on South African Airways, a full service airline.  The flight time was around 1.5 hours only.

These were the business class seats on South African Airways.  They don’t look as luxurious or as spacious as other airlines, but for a short flight, this would do very well already.

Leg space for the business class was enormous.

These were the seats for our economy class.

I especially like the 2-4-2 configuration on any flights.  It means so much to have couple space without a stranger sharing the same space with us. More importantly, it means that both of us can go to the restroom without asking for the same stranger to excuse us.

On the economy class seat, this was the leg space I had.  For a woman of 1.6m, it would do very well for a short flight.  I still had plenty of space to myself without feeling claustrophobic.

The same amount of leg space for a 1.8m man.  Still pretty comfortable.

The inflight entertainment system, which really was not very impressive.  Thankfully, we have our own electronic devices to entertain ourselves during the short flight time.

The one meal that was served on board was really just a choice between a beef or chicken sandwich and a drink.  But it wasn’t too bad at all.

As we approach the airport for landing, we could see the Victoria Falls at a distance away!

We soon landed at Victoria Falls Airport.

Welcome to Zimbabwe!

Final Verdict

We had quite a pleasant flight on South African Airways.  There was no flight delays, loss of baggage etc, and everything was very smooth.

Join us next as we check out Kingdom Hotel in Zimbabwe.
