Victoria Falls/Zambia border closed - 18 May 2012
We are informed by the Zimbabwe and Zambia authorities that the border between Victoria Falls Zimbabwe and Livingstone will be closed from 06h00hrs and 15h00hrs on the 29th May 2012.
This will obviously affect all cross border transfers on that day. We will be in contact with any of our guests if it affects your travel arrangements but also feel free to contact us in the meantime if you're worried.
The closure of the border is due to the official tripartite launch and signing ceremony of the hosting of the UNITED NATIONS WORLD OF TOURISM ORGANISATION (UNWTO). The Secretary General of the United Nations World Tourism Organisation will meet with the Excellencies of Zambian and Zimbabwe to sign the documents.
When the border reopens at 15h00 it will remain open for the rest of the night to facilitate clearing the backlog of traffic.
