Book well in advance when planning a connection
during "peak" season: December/January, Easter,
July/August especially if you have a vehicle to consider.
We hold provisional bookings for a maximum of 4 days
pending receipt of a 50% deposit. Provisional space is released
automatically unless confirmed. See our
payment procedure. (Apologies for this un-user-friendly policy)
If you have a vehicle, supply dimensions
particularly the height including roof rack/accessories when making an enquiry. Note that trailers
carry a relatively heavy surcharge.
Get to the departure point at Milibizi or Kariba by
07:30 in the morning.
Remember to pack an "overnight bag" with
towels. You'll sleep on "loungers" - blankets are
provided. Take reading materials.
The tariff includes three meals plus morning and
afternoon tea/coffee. There is a cash bar on board.
If you're a backpacker, you'll need to catch a lift
between Victoria Falls and Milibizi.
Also consider the flight between Kariba
and Victoria Falls as very suitable alternative to the ferry.
The Department of National Parks and Wildlife
Management charge you the equivalent of US$5 (subject to change
without notice) as you enter the Ferry Gates - carry small change
and insist on a receipt.
Alternatives by road include the route via
Livingstone and Siavonga in Zambia - recommended
- (approximately 6,5 hours) - it's tarred but
potholed - you may need a visa. Another option is the
"back road" via Binga - a 4 x 4 is recommended, it's
essential during the rainy season.
Look at "temporary
bases" in Kariba.
