Hi, I am planning a trip to Harare in early September 2014. I'd like to make an extension to Victoria Falls. Is it possible to go via bus or train? Is internal flight the only option? I am a single woman in my 50s traveling alone and have been solo in Africa several times. I'm hearing conflicting things about the economic health of bus and train transport. I would also love to see Great Zimbabwe and the city of Bulawayo, but again internal transport is a question. I am not eager to rent a car in part because where I'm from we drive on the right. Thanks for any help you can give.
Dear All, could somebody tell me is it safe to go to VF in Dec 13 to both sides? And how many tourist could be there?
After visiting Victoria Falls we are returning to Kruger Park in South Africa. Do we need the Yellow Fever certificate for this? Conflicting requirements from my travel agent and Travel Health Clinic.
I see that there are buses from Lusaka to Livingstone.
If I stay in a hotel in Livingstone, how will I get to Vic falls? Is there a bus? Do I need a taxi?
Or am I best off staying in a hotel just by Victoria Falls?
What do I need to have in my vehicle (car not 4 x 4) example do I need red and white stickers , do i need a ZA sticker , fire extinguisher, reflective vests
I will be travelling in a few days time to victoria falls. i would like to get in touch with Royal lodge,517 jacaranda cresent, anyone with their phone number?
HOW MUCH MONEY DO YOU NEED TO SPEND AT MOST FOR 3 DAYS AT VICTORIA FALLS
We are trying to get to Victoria Falls from Tanzania. Can anyone advice on affordable transportation to VF.
I am traveling to Victoria Falls and going through to Kenya so I was wondering what sim card would be best and were would I be able to purchase one? I was hoping to get one in the airport.
What EXACTLY needs to be done to go from one country to the other in order to get back into S. Africa?
- Where/how hard is it to get visas? Do you need visas for both countries? Can we get these ahead of time or do you get them in the airport?
- Yellow Fever Shot: Can you get before even coming to Africa (I know it needs to be within 10 days). We will be coming from Munich straight to Victoria Falls and only staying there for 1 day. If we get the shots in Munich and have the certificates, will this be ok?
- How long does it take to get from one side to the other and what is the best method of transportation and costs?
So..I'm travelling to Vic falls with my boyfriend in january and I've realized I haven't figured all the details out yet. And I'm hoping you could help me out..
We're flying in and out through Livingstone airport with SAA, but we've booked accommodation on the Zim side of the falls, and we're unfortunately only staying 2nights.. So my biggest question is if that's "doable"? Will we waste too much time going through customs and acquiring our visas etc.. And what would be the best way to travel this leg between Livingstone and Victoria falls town (several taxis? Pick-up service?)? And what would the damage be- time and moneywise?
I've also got my mind set on doing a sunset train or tram ride halfway across the bridge.. The trams run daily, I've figured out as much..But is it possible to prebook tickets? or is it strictly get in line and hope for the best/"first come, first served"? And is there a lot of people turned down due to limited capacity on the tram?..
Any other tips as to how we best spend our one afternoon and one full day in the beautiful region is much appreciated.. =)
What Are the best hotels inVictoria Falls? Going to be there for three nights like luxury and good food.
We are going to be staying at Victoria Falls on the Zimbabwe side but would like to cross over to the Zambian side to visit Livingstone and the Mukuni Big Five Safari Park.

I am about to design an itinerary (15 days) for an africa trip from scratch.
must see place victoria falls.
1. Another highlight for me is Serengeti in Tanzania. What could be a trip to compine both places?
2. Which are the transportation options between these 2 places?
3. Which season is best for travelling there?
4. I find many small group tours on the internet. Should I arrange it this way or should I better make my arrangements step by step once there?
5. Do you think that I can find an experience equal to Serengeti close to victoria falls? Is it worth trying to compine serengetti and victoria falls?
i am not that keen on adventure sports etc so what else is there to see and do .
i will have up to one whole day probably - is that enough.
is it worth going across to zimbabwe on a day pass - will i see much more ?
many thanks in advance
Is there train service available from Nairobi?
Everything I read says to bring USD in small denominations. I understand the need to have some of the smaller denominations, but is it difficult to pay for services, tours, etc. with hundred dollar bills if the total due is greater than100.
I have totally overlooked my visa situation for visiting Victoria Falls!
I am an Australian and will be leaving in 2 weeks time and as I am still waiting for my passport to be returned from the Brazilian Consulate which has taken 2 months. I will not have time to apply for visas to Zambia and Zim before I go.
Is it a reliable situation to get the visa on arrival. I don't want to book any trips till I am sure.
I would like to see all there is to see at Vic Falls and then over to Chobi and possibly Kasane then back to Livingstone to catch the flight to Jo/burg. Is that a multiple exit type visa?
I found a very reasonable package with Vic Falls Safari Lodge and Chobe Game Lodge.
Is it tricky to go to Zimbawe re visa and also is it safe in that area?
Hope someone has the latest on the visas and safety.
Hi - can anyone advise if there is a bus or train from Victoria Falls to Jo'burg via Zinmbabwe pls.

Can anyone tell me roughly how much it might cost to fly from Harare to Victoria Falls at the moment? I only have a week in Zimbabwe, I want to fly there and back in 2 days. Are Air Zimbabwe still servicing that route? Any comments??? Any other suggestions???
We were offered airport transfers through our hotel at13 US per person, each way - we're staying at The Kingdom ($26 US /32 AUS each way in total).
Just wondering if it's worth it and how much a taxi would be (roughly...)

All help is greatly appreciated!
hi, need advise about which hotel to book in Livingstone. A Mid range one and from which one is able to see the falls. I have browsed several sightsa and they all seem to have different rates. Pl advise on a good agent.
Back in the 1960's Chippy and Stella Wood used to run the Vistoria Falls Restaurant which was about a mile above the Falls, on the bank of the river, on the Northern Rhodesian (Zambian) side.
I grew up while Mum and Dad ran the Vic Falls Restaurant as well as the Sprayview Restaurant on the other side of the bridge (near the Vic Falls Hotel).
I can't find any references to either of these places now and wondered if there is anyone out there that remembers the restaurants to which I refer.
Please get in touch if you do.
I'm planning on visiting Kruger National Park and then travelling to Victoria Falls (Zambian side).
Can anyone advise the best way to get there? So far all I have come up with is flying from Kruger back to Johannesburg and then flying from Johannesburg to Livingstone. I'd like to avoid the trip back to Johannesburg if possible. Looking at the South African Airways flights schedules it appears I'd have to stay overnight in Johannesburg.
Any advice on flights or alternative transport appreciated.
I am planning a long awaited trip to SA from India, in Aug. We are planing 3 nights in Vic Falls.
