Tranfer Livingstone airport to Old Ursula
by: Tony

Livingstone airport to the border is about 18kms. Old Ursula is about 15kms from the border. If you caught a cab you would have to change at the border.
It would certainly be easiest to organise a transfer from the airport directly to the camp. This will cost in the region of US$26 per person one way. Let us know if you need help with that.

A cab from the border to Vic Falls airport will cost you in the region of US$35 to $40.

How are you going to get around once you are at Old Ursula?

old ursula camp
by: Anonymous

thankyou for that information. I would love to organise a cab from Livingstone to Old Usulsa camp.I am only staying 24hours in Zimbabwe, before heading to Zambia to start a camping tour. I would like to go on a microflight and a w
alk with the lions while I am In victoria falls.
Do you think I need to book these activities in advance or just go along on the day?This is my first time overseas(from Australia)so I am full of questions!!!!!

Old Ursula
by: Tony

If you are staying in Zimbabwe for only 24 hours. I am not sure that Old Ursula is the right place for you. It is lovely but it is way out of town and you will have difficulty in getting into town to do anything you want. It is more suitable for large self drive groups.
You are landing in Livingstone which is in Zambia, which means you have to buy a visa, then traveling to Zimbabwe where you will have to buy another visa and then going back to Zambia again, requires another visa or at least a double entry visa when you first arrived. All quite costly.

Microlight flights are only available in Zambia and not Zimbabwe. Walk with lions you can do in either country and yes I would advise to pre book either of these. My suggestion would be to email us on info@victoriafalls-guide.net and maybe we can help to restructure your itinerary a little. How many people in your group?

old ursula camp
by: carolyn

Hi Tony, Thanks for your advice.Unfortunately I have paid for my night at Old Ursula Camp, but I will enquire whether I can cancel.Have you any suggestions where to stay in Zambia where it would be easy for me to access the micro flight and lion walk. I am travelling alone till I meet up with a tour after my 24hour stay.I only booked into Old Ursula Camp because it looked so beautiful, but I had no idea it was so far away.

Old Ursula transport
by: Tony

I would suggest getting hold of Wild side tours for accommodation and activities in Zambia. If you are travelling alone it is going to be expensive to arrange a transfer all the way to Ursula as you will have to pay for a minimum of two people.
I am sure that Old Ursula will collect you from Victoria Falls town centre, check with them. Then you can just catch the transfer from Livingstone airport to Vic Falls town in Zimbabwe. As this is a standard trip you wont have to pay for two people.

Old Ursula is very lovely, its just transport that is the problem.
