Getting to Kariba From South Africa (most direct routes)

1. By road over Beitbridge border post to Masvingo, Gweru, Kadoma and Chinhoyi to Kariba
2. By road through Botswana via Plumtree border to Bulawayo over Gweru, Kadoma and Chinoyi to Kariba
3. By air to Lusaka then by road to Kariba border approx 2.5hr drive
4. By air to Harare then by road to Kariba approx 4.5hr drive
5. A tarred road from Kariba via Zambia to Livingstone is about an 8 hour journey

For the long haul journey we work on a minimum of 4 people

365 km from Harare on a very scenic national route, a third of it through wild life areas

At a steady pace the drive takes some four hours from Harare

Transfers are done everyday / rather anyday of the month when we have clients to pick up and drop off

If clients are boarding houseboats, it will be best to have them fly into Lusaka rather than Harare, for one reason, the distance is shorter and the flights to Lusaka get in earlier, which makes it easier to arrive in Kariba for the same day take off without having to spend the night in Kariba

If the clients have to fly into Harare, it would best be advised to try and get the early morning flight to ensure they get to Kariba before 1600hrs
