If you have 3 days of free time and you would like to get the adrenaline pumped in your blood, go for Victoria Falls with many adventurous opportunities as well as epic sceneries with wildlife encounters.

Chobe River Camp – Victoria Falls drive about 150km; 2hr but plan more due to 2 border crossings

Day 1 – 2: Coming from Namibia you will cross two borders until you are in Zimbabwe. Prepare yourself for some longer procedures and cash payments at the Zimbabwe border crossing. You are not allowed to take any meat, milk or fruits across the border. Border crossing with a car should be around 277NAM$ at the Namibia border and 217Pula at the Botswana border. Afterwards, drive further to Kazungula border crossing to enter Zimbabwe, where you pay around 20US$ to the officer and probably 30US$ for an insurance that I am not sure if it is needed. Additionally, I was asked to pay 50US$ for whatever, I actually don’t know. But maybe it’s just worth paying and driving off as soon as you can to reach Victoria Falls after another 80km on tared road. Vic Falls Restcamp is ok for some nights and is very helpful to offer you Helicopter tours, Bungee Jumping at the falls or Game Drives in the Stanley & Livingstone Private Game Reserve. From the Restcamp you can walk to the mighty Victoria Falls and the Lookout Café to enjoy the view across the Zambezi gorge.

From this point, you can fly back home or continue your route while crossing into the wildlife-rich Botswana and scenic Namibia. Bybe bye, salut and lisale kuhle
