    • Day trips to Victoria Falls from Livingstone

      Victoria Falls Apr 6, 2014 at 3:30 AM

      Hi,

      We are a South African family of 3 travelling to Livingstone but would like to visit both the Zambian and Zimbabwean sides of Victoria Falls. How do we get to Zimbabwean side and back and what are the costs involved, as I assume the cost to bring our vehicle across will be expensive?

      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.
      Regards
      Cathy

    • How do I get from Livingstone to Victoria Falls?

      Victoria Falls Jul 29, 2013 at 6:37 AM

      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?

      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.

    • Coming into Zimbabwe and leaving from Zambia

      Victoria Falls May 13, 2013 at 9:11 AM

      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?

    • Q's before my 1st Vic falls experience..

      Victoria Falls Dec 13, 2012 at 3:32 AM

      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.. =)
