Please note we can finish this safari on either the Livingstone side of the Zambezi at Victoria Falls or the Zimbabwean side. We would advise that flights can be arranged either from Livingstone, on the Zambian side of Victoria Falls for the end of this safari where there is an international airport in Livingstone. Alternatively flights can be organised out of the Victoria Falls, Zimbabwean side. Do note extra visa and transfer costs apply if you need to cross the river to fly out. Transfers can be arranged to either airport from the campsite where we finish.
