    All the hotels around the Zimbabwe side are conveniently priced.
    Is there a way to beat the trend? Maybe stay in a guest house in the city itself.

  • Joburg-Bots-Livingstone, Zambia-Harare, Zimbabwe Road Trip

    Victoria Falls Apr 15, 2015 at 3:04 AM

    Hi, I am traveling with a small group from Joburg to Victoria Falls via Botswana, planning to cross ferry over to Livingstone, Zambia. From there, I'll begin a 2nd road trip with friends from Victoria Falls to Harare. Two questions:
    1. Need advice on an affordable, trusted 4X4 car or van company to handle all the details of border crossing, vehicle certifications, etc. About how much will this one-way travel cost, including vehicle, driver and fuel?
    2. Planning to do the Joburg-Livingstone trip over 2 days--staying night in Francistown--any thoughts on reasonable hotels or tented campsites?

    guide and accommodation in Harare

    Zimbabwe Feb 3, 2015 at 4:50 AM

    My daughter and I are doing a 2 week small group tour of Zim. in July this year. We want to go to Harare a couple of days early, and look up places my late husband lived in and worked at during the 1950's....changed a lot, of course.I am wanting to know if there is a B&B not too far from the city, which might also offer a tour around for a couple of hours. If not, does anyone know of an accredited guide who might takes us around
    Many thanks,

    Local fixer - guide in Zimbabwe

    Zimbabwe Jan 24, 2015 at 8:15 AM

    Hello all, I'm working on a couple of articles about Zimbabwe. I'm looking for a local guide/fixer that can help me to get in touch with people who work in the tourism industry there, and (same or other person) that will join me towards the Mozambique border, as I'm writing a part about the land mines clean up there. All hints towards people who can help out is more than welcome. French or English speaking is a must. Koen

    Canoe safari on Zambezi river in December

    Victoria Falls Aug 8, 2014 at 4:58 PM

    My family (includes 3 boys 11 - 13 yrs) will be at Victoria Falls and are looking to do a 3 day 2 night canoe safari end of December. Does anyone have any experience doing this. I am told that with young children that I can only do the upper Zambezi. It is also rainy season so scheduled safaris have finished. It is possible to do a private canoe safari though. Any advice on doing a canoe safari at this time of year? Finally can anyone recommend a company. I can see the big ones like shearwater however I am looking for a participation camping canoe safari with a reliable operator at a cheaper price.
    PS if you know of a great budget accommodation in Livingstone let me know.
    Many thanks

    I am planning on traveling around Zimbabwe from mid October to mid November, since October is the last recommended month to watch the wild life I have decided to spend this two weeks in the Hwange park and Mana Pools ( staying in Victoria Falls and Kariba). There is a ferry that goes from Lbizi to Kariba but it wont be operating around this time. Does anyone know how else can I get to Kariba without having to go to Harare?

    How to travel internally from Harare to Vic Falls?

    Victoria Falls Feb 28, 2014 at 3:19 PM

    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.

    Advise that you avoid Zimbabwe for the next few days

    Zimbabwe Aug 2, 2013 at 11:41 PM

    More of a travel advisory than a question, but unfortunately there is nowhere else to post this where it's visible.
    Reports in the media this morning indicate that Robert Mugabe's ZANU-PF party have 'won' the election in Zimbabwe.
    Given the violence that has followed the last two elections (whose result was the subject of intense debate and cynicism), sadly it seems likely that there is a risk of similar violence.
    I would therefore strongly advise that you avoid any non essential travel there for the foreseeable future: although the previous violence did not involve many foreigners, there is always the risk of finding yourself in the wrong place at the wrong time.
    If you're planning to visit Vic Falls, then the Zambian side (Livingstone) will not be affected.

    where should at least 100 students stay for a weekend long conference that's not ZIPAM in darwendale

    Zimbabwe Jul 17, 2013 at 6:26 AM

    we wish to host at least 100 students for a students conference in Zimbabwe somewhere not far from the capital Harare and want to know if anyone would know of such a place. Last year they had their conference at a ZIPAM facility in Darwendale and so a place with similar cost and catering would be just fine.
