Entance Fees to Victoria falls
by: Tony

Entrance Fees are US$30 for internationals and US$20 for regional countries like South Africa.
Yes it is a single entry ticket if you exit the gate you will have to pay again.

It is for full access to the Falls. Although there is no where that you can go beneath the Falls. There is one place where you can climb down some steps and look at the Falls from a lower angle.

No you cannot buy a family pass but children under 12 pay half price.

No you cannot buy a multiple pass, but you can stay in the park for as long as you like in any one day, as long as you don't exit the gate

Yes you can pay in SA Rands but the exchange rate is not favorable. You will pay R160 instead of US$20.

Try to take US$ with you instead of Rand as paying for anything except the supermarket works out very expensive, many places will use an exchange rate of 10 to 1

Hi Zarina

Regarding the border - my advice would be to avoid Bietbridge at all costs at that time of year, it is an incredibly busy border and you will be delayed for a long time.
I would go via Botswana through martins drift via Francistown and then Kasane. It will cost you about P160 to enter Botswana but this is well worth it as these border posts are much more pleasant.
When travelling back ie going south it is not to bad.
I will send you a copy of our downloadable guide if you send me you email address and this will answer many of your questions regarding border costs, allowances etc.

Regarding the activities, go onto our activities page on our website, http://www.victoriafalls-guide.net/victoria-falls-activities.html
I hope that this will give you the information that you are looking for. You will also find a price list of all the activities you can do. You can easily pre book and pay for everything before you go, you just need to send us a booking enquiry form and we will arrange everything for you, and it wont cost you any more than if you do it when you get there and you can pay directly into and SA bank account. Vic Falls is incredibly busy over xmas and new year and I would definitely recommend pre booking activities as they will almost certainly be fully booked if you leave it till the last moment.

Vic Falls accommodation is 100% fully booked over this period so if you send us more details regarding lokuthula I am sure that we will have someone who would like to use it.

On the whole grocery prices are slightly more expensive than SA about 10 to 20% but it depends on the product. A loaf of bread will cost you between R6 and R7 and a cokes and beers about the same, so no point in taking those, but wine will cost you a lot more than in SA. Quality of meat is not brilliant and the choice not great. Take what you can, but you will not go hungry as you can buy everything there.
I hope that helps

by: Anonymous

please advise if these fees apply on the zambian side,and for zambian nationals how much does it cost?

Entrance fees to the Zambian side of the Falls cost $20 for international visitors, for local Zambians I am not sure but I think it is about $5 each.

Zambian nationals entering the Zimbabwe side pay the regional rate which is $20 per person

Hi Cecilia

Entrance fees to Victoria Falls Zimbabwe have not changed for 2014.

International US$30
Regional US$20 or R200
Local US$7

If your husband has a valid residence permit for South Africa in his German passport he can then pay the Regional rate which is R200.

Victoria falls fees
by: Bonolo

Me and my partner and some friends are planning to come down to Victoria falls in December 2014. would you advise on which resort will be suitable for us and what the costs would be. and also advice on how to secure bookings as i know that time of the year most places are fully booked.


Hi Bonolo

If there is a group of you by far the best value is to try to get into the self-catering units at Lokuthula or Rest camp. These do get booked up in December but you are planning quite far ahead so you might be lucky. Other than that there is a range of B&B's, small lodges and Hotels and it really depends on your budget your group size and your preferences. If you can contact us through our booking enquiry form with a few more details we will be able to help you get exactly the right place. Once we have found you the right place then you will need to pay a deposit to secure the booking. This can be done via credit card or bank transfer which ever is easiset for you

Look foward to hearing from you

Multiple activities at Falls
by: Anonymous

Where is the entry to the park? If I do three different things morning, afternoon and evening, could I have to pay $30 three times in a day?

By Tony

The $30 entrance fee is to get into the see the Victoria Falls only. This is the only activity you can do on entering this gate. The other activities you are likely do be doing won't be through this gate.
You would need to tell me what other activities you are doing then I can tel you if there are any other park fees that you will need to pay. For instance a sunset cruise you have to pay a $10 park fee, a helicopter flight you pay a $12 park fee. Some other activities there are no park fees.

Entrance fees
by: Tony

As has been posted numerous times on this thread.

SADAC/Regional $20
International $30

If you are from Botswana you will pay the SADAC rate of $20

If you go on a guided tour of the falls then you need to add the cost of the tour which is about $22. This is maybe why you have heard people saying it is $50. But the tour is not compulsory and has to be prebooked with one of the tour operators or ourselves. Booking enquiry form

We use Rands in SA - apparently we still have to pay the park fees for the Chobe + Falls trip. Could you tel me how much would it be more or less for 2 people. I was told that those fees are to be paid in US Dollars. Looking forward to our trip. Thanks

Contact booking agent
by: Tony

I think you will have to go back to the booking agent who booked your trip for you. It all depends on how they packaged it together for you, fees could well be included and should be. If they know what they are doing they can help you with this info.

Tour Prices
by: Boo

Hi Ovas

A guided tour of the Falls currently costs $46 per person this includes the entrance fee of $30. It also includes collection and drop off from which ever hotel you are staying in at the Falls.

We do recommended a guided tour as the guides are very knowledgeable and it gives you you a full insight into these magnificent Falls.

A guided tour last about 2.5 hrs, so there is plenty of time to do some other activities, have a look at our price list for whats available.

Entry fees into the Falls
by: Tony

Entry fees are;

US$ 20 for foreign nationals
US$ 15 for SADAC country states
US$ 5 for local Zimbabweans

Passports are required to prove nationality. This is a one time entrance, you have to pay again if you exit and enter later in the day.

A guided tour costs US$ 36 this includes the entrance fee and pickup and drop off from your local hotel. Which is quite nice when it gets really hot.
