Kariba Ferries

Hi Sue

Yes there is a back road through to Victoria Falls, this is a 4x4 road that has not had any maintenance on it for ten years, and if as you say your party does not want to rough it, this is not an option, it is for the off road enthusiast.

Two options

You can drive through on the Zambian side, the roads are tarred and good, but depending on your passports you might pay visa costs.

Second is the ferry which in my view is the best by far. It is quite expensive US$100 per person and US$ 100 for the car, but its a fantastic trip right up the lake. Its a good boat and not really roughing it, but you don't have your own luxury cabins. see more information here Kariba Ferries

Hope that helps

Booking at Hwange National Park
by: Sue

Hi Tony

After our stay in Vic Falls in September this year, we want to stay in side Hwange Nat Park. We are travelling in a 4x4. Can we book through your website ? The National Parks website does not cater for onsite booking. And further, is is necessary to book, or can one just arrive at the park - I understand park accommodation is under utilised, so there should be space available.

Thanks again for a great site.

Hwange National Park Booking
by: Tony

Hi Sue

Sorry but no we can't book the national parks for you. That is done through central reservations in Harare. If you contact me through our contact us form, I will them email you the full price list and details of the who and how to contact the booking office. Pre Booking in September I would say is essential. Its prime time especially if you want to get one of the better camps sites.

There is a map of Hwange which you can print off, if you scroll to the bottom of our Vic falls map page.

I think you live in PMB, so do I, so if you want to give me a call I can help you to decide where to stay in Hwange.
