Departure Tax
by: Boo Peel

Your departure taxes will be included in your air tickets out of Zambia or Zimbabwe.

There is a transfer that we can book from any hotel in Vic Falls or the airport to Livingstone airport for US$ 16 per person one way. This is done by Ambula Safaris a very well known and reputable company.

Hope you have a great trip!

Livingstone airport vs Victoria Falls
by: Sharon

Thanks for the information with regards the departure tax. I didn't realize there was an airport in Victoria Falls (guess I should have read your website!) and booked flights out of Livingstone. I am now trying to decide whether to cancel them to avoid the hassle of crossing the border. Cost wise it would work out the same if I cancelled the Livingstone flight and flew out of Victoria Falls. (Refund of half Livingstone flight plus saving $50 visa cost would be the same as cost of booking a new flight). Are there long delays to cross into Zambia? And is the Livingstone airport further away? What would you recommend?

Hi Sharon - there are not normally long queues at the border post and you should be able to pass through quickly. However if I had a choice I would prefer not cross the border, it just cuts into your holiday time and is slightly frustrating.

Don't forget you need a Zambian visa on arrival and you will need another one when you enter Zambia again to fly out.

Livingstone airport is quite far out of town but so is Victoria Falls Airport 22 kms.

Many people do fly into Livingstone and transfer to Zimbabwe as it seems to be the cheapest option at the moment for those nationalities that don't require a Visa.
