Zimbabwe Transfers

Airport to Victoria Falls Town

All our transfers are conducted in Mini Buses and/or Coaches. Our Guide will personally meet your clients with name board that clearly states the client’s name/s. On their journey to town they are given a brief but informative commentary on the area, places to visit and items of special interest. On arrival clients are given a Welcome Pack containing the following:

  • A Welcome Letter
  • A Company business card with full contact details and an emergency after-hours number
  • An Itinerary giving them details of pick up times for their return journey and any tours they may have booked with us
  • The scheduled departures from the airports refer to flight arrivals and not specific departure times. Guests may experience some delays whilst awaiting other passengers off the same flight that are travelling on the same vehicle. Whilst we try by all means to be on time for airport departures, we sometimes experience delays along the scheduled pick-up routes. Please allow up to 15 minutes for these delays.

Hwange Transfers

The driving time from Victoria Falls to Hwange Main Camp Gate is between 2 1/2 to 3 hours in duration, depending on factors such as traffic, road blocks and livestock or wild animals upon the roads. As safety is always our first priority, we are careful to remain within the speed limit, which, for public service vehicles is 80 kms per hour.
Due to National Parks regulations, it is not possible to drive within the Hwange National Park after 18h00. In other words, should you be travelling to a camp that is located approximately 2 hours from the main gate, it is necessary to enter the Park gate at a latest time of 16h00 and to leave Victoria Falls at least 3 hours prior to that.
As flight times often conflict with this we encourage all guests to plan accordingly and try to spend one night in Victoria Falls before travelling to Hwange to ensure smooth travel, and account for any flight delays or time spent being processed by immigration on arrival.
