    Default Fuel Payment in Zambia?

    We will be crossing into Zambia from Zimbabwe (Mana Pools) via the Chirundu border crossing. We will be spending the night at The Moorings Campground near Monze for one night, and then head into Livingstone the next day.

    Questions:

    Can I use a credit card to pay for fuel in Zambia?

    If I have to use cash, will they accept US Dollars?

    If they do not accept US Dollars, is there a money exchanger in the Chirundu border area?

    Can I pay for Zambia border/visa fees with a card? If not, how do I obtain Kwacha to complete the transaction? Or will they accept US Dollars.

    Thanks!

    Kirk, fuel is payable in cash using Kwacha only.
    Border fees can be paid in US$ but not using cards

    There will be opportunity to exchange.

    Good morning! Will no fuel station accept credit cards? Even in places like Livingstone and Mongu? Thanks! A

    No. We were there in 2012 and had to pay in Kwacha.
