Victoria Falls from Kasane

Many people go to Victoria Falls from Kasane, because it´s just around 100 km east of Kasane. The Chobe river joins the Zambezi River not far away.

We didn´t go in that moment because we will visit the falls latter when visiting Zimbabwe and Zambia (travelling by public transport, january 2015. You can read the complete information in these countries). 

Here´s the information from Kasane and it can be useful for you. 

Victoria Falls, Zambia and/or Zimbabwe from Kasane

You have many tours or transport from the hotels or agencies in Kasane.

As reference, Chobe Safari Lodge offers return transport to Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe).
Price: 620 P/p (54 €). Quite expensive!
The service is from 8:00 (go) til 17:00 (back).
But enquire around Kasane as probably other cheaper options of transport... or you can hitch-hike (Kasane is only 10 km from the international road... cheap local vans go there... and from there many truck going to Livingstone-Zambia... maybe less traffic going to Zimbabwe... Try!).

If you want to go, keep in mind:
  • Most of the foreigners need visas for Zimbabwe and Zambia. Usually, visa on arrival, which is 20 $/day for both countries or 30$ Zimbabwe and 50$ Zambia for a 30 days visa (or 50 $ for the new Kaza Zambia-Zimbabwe visa for 30 days).
  • The entrance fees to the falls are:30 $ Zimbabwe side and 20$ Zambia. 
  • So a day trip to the falls from Kasane will at least cost you around 100 € (and just visiting one side-one country of the falls). Less if hitch-hiking... but start early!
  • If you are travelling by car, you have to pay border taxes (and not too cheap, maybe around 50 $ in Zambia and 80$ in Zimbabwe). And if rental car most of the companies will charge you an extra fee and will not allow to continue further from Victoria Falls or Livingstone. So maybe a tour or public transport is better in that case.
