Flights & getting there
Victoria Falls Airport is located 18km southeast of town. Its new international terminal opened in late 2015.
While nothing compared to the heydays of the 1980s and '90s, there's still no shortage of flights arriving at Victoria Falls. Most come from Johannesburg (US$150 to US$500 return). There are also regular flights from Harare with FastJet and Air Zimbabwe for as little as US$20.
Check out www.flightsite.co.za or www.travelstart.co.za, where you can search all the airlines including low-cost carriers (and car-hire companies) for the cheapest flights and then book yourself.
From the airport you'll need to get a taxi into town, which costs around US$30. Another option is to pre-arrange a transfer through your accommodation or travel agent (US$15 per person one way). There are also several car hire companies here – including Europcar – handy if you needed to book a 4WD or sedan.
Car & Motorcycle
If you’re driving a rented car into Zambia, you need to make sure you have insurance and carbon tax papers, as well original owner documents. When you enter Zambia you are issued with a Temporary Import Permit, valid for while you are in the country. This must be returned to immigration for them to acquit the vehicle.
A popular way of getting to/from Victoria Falls is by the overnight Mosi-oa-Tunya train that leaves Victoria Falls daily at 7pm for Bulawayo (economy/2nd/1st class US$8/10/12, 12 hours). First class (comprising two-berth compartments) is the only way to go. Be aware that delays of several hours aren't uncommon, and you'll need to bring your own food. Make reservations at the ticket office inside the train station.
The luxurious Rovos Rail to Pretoria also departs from here.
