    Default Kariba - Mlibisi Ferry - still operating?

    Good morning

    We are driving up to Kariba for a houseboat holiday, leaving Port Elizabeth, SA, tomorrow morning. We were planning to drive from Vic Falls via Zambia to Kariba, but have just heard that the road is VERY bad & we are not in a 4x4, and are towing a trailer. The best alternative would thus be to take the ferry which used to run between Mlibisi & Kariba back in the good old days. Does anybody know if it is still operating, and if so, the telephone number where I can contact them?

    No - Kariba ferries haven't been operating for some time, & sadly there are no alternatives. The other option is to come down the Binga-Karoi road in Zim, very beautiful, but badly corugated &c in places; but a rugged 4x2 will get through. Let me know if you need further info on this route, there are some great places along it.
