Car Rental Victoria Falls

Victoria Falls Car Hire is probably an unnecessary expense as there are Free Bus Shuttles provided by all the major hotels and activity operators, but if you really want one or need to travel further afield read below....

Car Rental Victoria Falls

If you want to hire a car in Victoria Falls it's easy enough. There are Car Hire companies at the airport inside the main terminal building just as you enter the arrivals hall.

However being relatively small offices, it's not guaranteed that they will have vehicles available so you might want to pre-book a vehicle, which can be done easy enough through the DiscoverCars.com link below.

We recommend DiscoverCars.com as they seem to have the best selection, rates and a Best Price Guarantee, we have also had really good feedback about them. Click on banner link below.

But Do you Need To Hire a Car?


Victoria Falls Airport Taxis

Airport Taxi's cost approx US$30 into town

 Traditional Dancers at the Victoria Fals Airport

Traditional Dancers greet visitors at the airport with an excellent show.

The question is - Do you need one? The airport is situated 22kms from the Victoria Falls town center and there are taxis or airport transfers which can be easily arranged, through us if you wish - contact us.

Transfers to town cost in the region of US$17 per person one way. There are also taxis at the airport so if there is a group of you, these work out cheaper as it costs about US$30 to $35 for all of you.

If you are staying in one of the main hotels you can then rely on their shuttle service to and from town center and the Falls themselves.

If you look at our Map of Victoria Falls you can get a clearer picture of the layout of the town. If you are staying at one of the smaller lodges or B and B's you can either walk or catch a taxi for about US$5 anywhere within a 5km radius.

Also read our page on Getting Around Victoria Falls which goes into a bit more depth. 

If you decide to go on any of the multitude of activities available then the tour operator will pick you up and drop you off again at your hotel, most of the activities include the transfer in the price you pay.

Most things around and about are within walking distance, like the shops etc. But one thing I must say is that it does get very hot and walking any distance can be uncomfortable.

4 x 4 Self-Drive Vehicle Hire

If you want to go exploring a bit further afield, to Hwange National Park and beyond, you will need to hire a car, as transfers around Zimbabwe or Botswana do get costly.

You can also hire vehicles without all the camping equipment. Below is an example of the vehicles available. Please Contact Us if you would like to hire one of these vehicles.
