i would like to find out the price of public transport in Zambia to rural areas.
I am travelling with my grand daughter (15) from Bulawayo (by train) to Vic Falls where we plan to cross over to Livingstone. I haven't crossed here before and have been reading some horror stories about the border posts ie: long waits, surly custom officals, persistent craft sellers and the long walk between the 2 borders. As we'll be dragging lugage with us, I am hoping there are taxi's that will be available on the Zim side to bring us to the Zam border? Has anyone personal info on the train, is it safe etc. Do we have concerns at Zim border control? This is her first trip and she is a very nervous type and scares easily. Appreciate any info and advice. Cheers
Are there direct flight options between Lusaka and Livingstone?
How much it costs?
How to book these flights?
Hello, I am studying abroad and we are taking a trip to the Zimbabwe side of Victoria falls side. My father was from Zambia so I would love to cross over because I have never been before.
1st question. Will I need a visa to cross since my father was born and raised there? If so how much is the visa.
2. How far is the border? How much would taxi fair cost.
3. How much are Zambian hotels near the border if I wanted to spend a night.
4. I know this may not be possible but I have family in kitwe. Is there a way I could safely travel there safely from the Victoria falls area.
Thank you for all your help.

I am planning a trip to Victoria Falls in late Jan/early Feb 2013 (there's two of us) I am keen to take in an aerial view of the falls. I wonder which is the more recommended way of doing this? Microlight or heli? (We have never done either) From the websites I notice that the prices are quite comparable. I would love advice on the pros and cons of each.
I'm looking for information about Liemba ferry to cross the Tanganika lake from Zambia to Tanzania. Does anyone have information about the ferry schedule or any contact in Zambia who can help me with reliable info? Thank you!

Hello, I will be moving to Lusaka in June and I am searching for a place to help me learn the native language. According to Wikipedia, the most popular and used native language in Lusaka is Nyanja, so I want to try to learn it. I will be staying in Lusaka for more than a year. Where can I learn the language and how difficult is it for someone with English background ? Thank you.
Regarding my message below, could anyone tell me how difficult it will be to get from our hotel in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe, over to Livingstone in Zambia to catch a bus? I'm hoping we can just take a taxi, but can you do this across the border? Also, we plan on just applying for a Zambian visa on entry there - would this be a problem? Thanks in advance! Merilyn
My husband lived in Chingola for six years as a child and we are planning a 3 day visit to Zambia at the end of a tour in Victoria Falls. First we are going to visit our foster child in Kabwe (we have found that there is bus service from Livingstone to Kabwe), then we would like to visit Chingola. Does anyone know if there is bus service from Kabwe to Chingola? I'm assuming that we would be able to get taxis in Chingola to get around, am I right? We will probably be flying home from Ndola airport - what would be the best way to get from Chingola to Ndola Airport? Any help you could give me in this regard would be much appreciated. Merilyn

Hi All, Born in Kitwe and left for South Africa as a baby. I'm visiting my parents in Durban South Africa from Australia shortly and want to visit some family in Kitwe who will show me around etc. I can find flights into Lusaka but can't find any airlines that operate between Lusaka and Kitwe on the internet. Any help will be helpful.
I am traveling from Johannesburg to Livingstone in January to see the falls--we need accommodation for 3 nights then we need to get to Kilimanjaro Airport in Tanzania. I cannot find a way to do this painlessly--does anyone have suggestions? I prefer plane or train (not bus).
My doc told me I don't need a yellow fever vaccination or certificate for entry into Zambia, she's giving me an exemption letter. Has anyone not had the vaccination/certificate and had trouble getting into Zambia? I'm going to Livingstone only for a couple nights, then down to South Africa. Cheers, David
I am travelling to Zambia from Johanesburg, I wanted to ask if Zambia is a Yellow Fever country and if I required to get a fellow fever jam when I arrive in SA from Zambia?
Hi there I've been to Zambia a few times before, but I've only ever been there for around 3.5 weeks at a maximum. However, this year I will be out there from the 13th July until the 15th August, and I'm just wondering if I'm going to need any sort of special visa to be out there for more than a month? I'm also needing to get to Zanzibar while I'm out there. I've looked at the cost of flying, and its a bit too much, so I'm trying to find if there are any other alternatives. I know there is a Bus and a Train via Dar Es Salaam, but I don't know how long they take or how reliable they are? Does anyone know? And does anyone know what the facilities are like on them? Is it literally just a seat, or are there toilets etc as well. I have done the Mazhandu family bus from Lusaka to Livingstone and was very impressed with that - easily comparable to UK standards. Are the links to Dar a similar standard? Thanks for your help.

I have read the posts about the family bus but i will be arriving in the afternoon and there isnt a bus till 7pm You say the busses leave when there full but how many busses are there to livingstone? And how easy is it to find out how full they are without being forced to get on one by the men that are singing praises about there company? Do most of them take the same amount of time to get to livingstone? Thanks
Hi - I will be in Gaborone in May and I had this idea that it would be awesome to make my way overland to Lusaka airpot in Zambia and fly back to the UK from there. The obvious choice of how to do this I would have thought would have been to rent a car but perhaps there's a better way to do it? (no problems with taking a bus or a tour as long as people would recommend it to be safe enough). Can imagine this might be a bit of a logistical nightmare - it's just a thought at the moment - but would appreciate any ideas/advice/safety tips people have? Has anyone done this before? Thanks! Caz
I have been advised that when entering Zambia, officials will confiscate any medication, including over-the-counter, unless it is in the original container and there is a pharmacy label. When one travels, it is common to have lot of different medications ranging from Aspirin, Ibuprophen, Pepcid, vitamins, Immodium, etc., etc., plus actual prescription items. We normally put each in a separate small baggie with a label, and dispose of the empty baggies at the last stop. To have to bring original containers would fill a complete carry-on, especially since we buy many over-the-counter items in bulk packaging. Any suggestions?
We are looking for recommendations and information about reputable safari companies operating in Zambia. Our plan is 14 to 21 days trekking in Zambia in July 2011 and would like to connect with a reliable company offering budget oriented wilderness treks.
Which Bus line would you recommend for a day trip to Victoria falls?
Hello, I am going to be visiting Zambia in September of this year, and am planning how to get to Chipata from Lusaka. I do not want to go straight to chipata, and would really like to take a detour to the copper belt, and northern zambia. from my lonelyplanet guide it says there is a train that goes from lusaka to Ndola via Kapiri Mposhi. time is not really much of an issue, so spending a week or two on the detour is fine with me. I just do not know where to go and how to get there. I will not have a car, so buses/train will be my transportation. any suggestions on places to visit and how to get there are greatly appreciated. thank you all for your time
