    Question Vic falls from Kasane

    I plan to visit Vic falls for a day from Kasane. Which is the better option, Zam or Zim? What are the costs involved for ferry, border etc.? We will be 8 people packed in a Prado. [Only on that day to save vehicle taxes etc.!]

    Cheapest option by far ZIM.
    In dry season ie Sept onwards - Zim best as the Zambian flow drops!
    High water I guess both is good but Zambian side better. (IMO)

    If its a once in a lifetime visit and for most it is.....view both. Park the car in ZIM and walk through to Zambia.

    If you want to experience the ferry and yes its can be quiet an experience, do it by all means but remain patient and polite. I have never had problems at the ferry, but it is chaotic at best. Normal time to cross on the Zambian side is about 45 mins to an hour but it could also be longer.

    I will try and get you the latest fees for SA regeistered vehicles.

    Please can I have some help/advice here as well! I am planning to go from Kasane to Livingstone in the first week of July - I am tempted to go via Zim to avoid the hassles/delays at the ferry but will have three Brits in the car who are not keen as they obviously get all the bad news in the UK - can anyone please advise if it is ok right now to go via Zim with British passports (plus my own Italian passport)?

    Default Border costs

    Hi guys,

    I am going to start a new thread where border costs and general info can be posted. I receive a very handy newsletter each week or two and the editor/author is a very motivated lady who keeps us in the loop. Will also post general travel info there.

    Please contact me direct if you need any help at all.
