Easiest & most cost effective option available

by Ben


My partner and I (UK citizens) are visiting Victoria Falls in August this year and fly into Vic Falls International airport whereby we have already booked a hostel which is in Zambia. (It seemed like a good idea at the time to book as we took a liking to it and we didnt want to leave it late and struggle to find somewhere else we liked) We only have a 3 night stay and need to get back to the same airport to then fly out on 31st Aug. We want to potentially do a helicopter ride, bungee and visit the devils pool. Would it be best just to cancel our current hostel booking in Zambia and find alternative hostels on the Zimbabwe side in a bid to prevent us having to cross the border on 4 different occasions? What would be our best option in terms of visa etc? Also any suggestions regarding adrenaline packages would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks in advance.

Yes stay on the Zimbabwe side

Hi Ben

I would say you would definitely be better off looking for something on the Zimbabwe side, it's not only more convenient for you, it is so much better in so many aspects. Have look at our accommodation page for whats available Victoria Falls accommodation. August is busy so don't cancel your Zambian booking until you have secured something in Zimbabwe.
You should get the Kaza visa which is your cheapest option and will cover you for your trip into Zambia to do the devils swim. As for packages we have lots of options available, please refer to this page Discount packages
