Yes, Nairobi-Johannesburg-Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe) would be the obvious air route. Quite a big trip. Or you could fly direct from Nairobi to Livingstone, the Zambian town on the other side of the falls.

Flying from Nairobi to Livingstone and taking whatever transportation is available across the river to VF seems the obvious answer. I must be missing something if most people go the longer way around

No, I don't think you'd cross the river. It's not my area, but I understand you'd visit the falls from the Zambia side rather than the Victoria Falls (town) side.

So, why can't I cross the river? I want to visit Victoria Falls and take the train south from there.

Take a taxi from Livingstone to Victoria Falls Bridge (border Point), cross and take then the night train to Bulawayo and Harare

Even if you could drive, it's long; Visas required all countries; some require Yellow Fever inoculation for entry.

There is no direct flight to VFA other than flight from NBO to Harare with connecting flight to Livingston on the Zambia side of the Falls. Otherwise it's a flight into JNB, then a flight to VFA. Schedules can be at strange hours and costly.
