Looking for advice and suggestions on specific airlines and flights/routes into Lusaka, Zambia. Departure is from DFW airport (Dallas, TX). Dates are mid June to early July. Given Covid, not sure if routing via Johannesburg will be possible or advisable due to restrictions upon return. Limited research indicated Dubai as an option for layover. thanks.

You can get there without doing JO. Give Lori at @TRAVEL EXPRESS a shout.

@spike.t is on the ground in Zambia. I'll bet he can let you in on the flights and COVID protocols.

Like said above. Call Lori or Jennifer. With all this Covid mess and travel requirements I would not be booking flights myself. They know what’s going on. Let them handle it.

I have been looking for flights since November to go to @spike.t place. Good luck, the routes change weekly. The best that I could find were from IAH either on Turkish or Qatar. But it’s three days of flying to get there, and then a change plane in either Kenya, Rwanda or Ethiopia for the final leg.

And I have looked from IAH, DFW, SAT, AUS and look about every other day. Good luck. However the best news that I have heard is that BA is going to restart A380 service to JNB. Things might start to get better, just not soon enough.

Yup go talk to lori or Jennifer... @Vanguard2279 used her to get here to come to us last year ...she sorted his flights and he went from usa on Ethiopian to Addis then lusaka....at moment the requirement is for a negative test within 7 days of arrival ..for the test on leaving you can have the test done in 24 hours ...quite a few hunters came to Zambia last year and haven't heard of any problems for them on arrival or departure

TMA805 - we are booking flights to Zambia and trying to avoid routing through Johannesburg for now. As direct as possible is best during these COVID times.......

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!

I am looking for a Safari Express. Was yours made in New Haven or South Carolina? Any other details you can give me? I am very motivated to buy.
