Victoria Falls Bus

A very affordable way to get to Victoria Falls, but requires patience quite a bit of time.

Apart from flying to Victoria Falls, taking a train, or driving, there are a few bus companies that service routes from Harare, Bulawayo and beyond. The local coaches are very basic, and do not offer any food, snacks or drinks, but they do stop in some of the major towns for passengers to grab a bite to eat and stretch their legs. The also stop in the major towns and cities, or wherever passengers need to be dropped off in the rural country (sometimes in the middle of nowhere so it would seem).
