Lusaka, Zambia – Proflight Zambia has launched a new daily direct flight from Livingstone to Lower Zambezi for the 2018 safari season. The new route will enable time-pressed tourists to more easily factor in a trip to the wildlife and fishing haven of the Lower Zambezi with their must-see visit to Livingstone and the Victoria Falls, and help to further open up the Lower Zambezi for the tourism industry there.
