    Default Border Crossing east of Mana Pools

    Hi Community Members

    I was wondering whether someone could please assist. We are a group of three vehicles traveling to Mana Pools in July this year. From there we plan to go to South Luangwa Game Reserve in Zambia.

    The question is whether it is possible to cross the Zambezi and the border between Zimbabwe and Zambia east of Mana Pools by ferry? My map shows a border post between the villages of Kanyemba (Zimbabwe) and Luangwa (Zambia) upstream from Cahora Bassa.

    Any advice in this regard please? If it is possible to do this crossing what is the condition of the roads on this route up to the T4 road in Zambia?

    Regards
    Kowie

    Default Border crossing

    No ferry where you suggest at kanyembA
    Can only cross at Kariba or
    Chirundu.

    Kowie, I can confirm with Mike. The border crossing at that point has no ferry, used mainly people on foot or coming across on boats / canoes. The odd vehicle goes through, but that is between Zim and Moz on the southern bank of the river.
