Yes there are taxis
by: Tony

Hi Donna

Thank you for your questions and yes I can help to clear these up for you completely.

Firstly it is only 2kms between the Zim and Zambia border posts across the bridge, but even this is quite a long walk with luggage and Victoria Falls gets very hot. There are taxis that will take you from one border post to the other (this is called no mans land between the 2 border posts) the cost will be maximum $5.

Secondly, the train I am afraid is not in very good condition any more, and it is also not very reliable time wise, it can depart very late and arrive late aswell. The carriages are quite dirty and in some case smelly and there are no lights. It is great for an adventurous young traveller but I would recommend this with your grand daughter. Rather catch the pathfinder bus, which is reliable, clean and comfortable.

Zim to Zambia
by: greg

Regarding your questions I think you may also be talking about the distance from Zambian border to the nearest town Livingstone. You see you can walk from Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe to the border but you can't walk from the Zambian border to Livingstone. That is maybe where the idea of 11kms comes from?

Thanks SO MUCH for the information. It helps clear things up for me and I have now decided to take the bus. Much relieved there are taxis available at the border too!
