    • visa for travelling in zambia, zimbabwe and namibie

      Zambia Feb 11, 2014 at 1:43 AM


      I am planning to travel by bus an train as follows:

      Zambia: arriving + 3 days (go by bus to Zimbabwe)
      Zimbabwe: 5 days (go by train to livingstone)
      Zambia: 3 days (go by bus to namibia)
      Namibia: 5 days (go by bys to zambia)
      Zambia: 5 days+ departure

      This means that I have to enter three times the boarder of Zambia. Do I need a multiple visa? But these are not available at the border. What are other possibilities? 3 times a transit visa? Since I am not less than 7 days in Zambia each time. But I need them before I am going by bus or train to the border. Can I get three times a transit visa at the airport? And what about Zimbabwe, I also need that one before going by bus to Zimbabwe?

    • Which backpack should I choose?

      Zambia Dec 3, 2013 at 5:53 PM

      I am travelling to Zambia in March for 6 weeks, stopping in London for 4 nights, and then going to Vietnam for 1 month. I know I want a Gregory backpack, since they fit me extremely well. I also know I want around 50L to 60L backpack. I've been looking at the Gregory Cairn 58 and the Gregory Deva 60. I'm having a hard time deciding which one to take with me! I like that the Cairn has more ventilation in the waistbelt and harness, but am unsure of all the different compartments and thin shoulder straps (since I will most likely be wearing tank tops/T'shirts, will it dig in?)? I like the Deva because it has the extra lumbar support and the easy accessible water bottle holder, but am unsure about all the different features and that it has no rain cover included. At this point, any advice/recommendations/suggestions/comments would help.

      Thank you!

    • Border Crossing

      Zambia May 25, 2013 at 3:15 AM

      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

    • Zimbabwe to South Africa

      Zambia May 1, 2013 at 2:29 PM

      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.

      Victoria Falls -- Microlight vs Helicopter ride

      Zambia Dec 1, 2012 at 8:32 PM

      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.

    • Chingola transportation

      Chingola Feb 17, 2012 at 10:01 AM

      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
