How to get there

Fly In

Fly into Livingstone’s Harry Mwanga Nkumbula International Airport with British Airways, South African Airways or Kenya Airways.

It is essential that you purchase a KAZA Visa to reduce your visa costs.

On your arrival in Livingstone you will be met by your safari assistant who will assist you with your transfer to the Kazungula Border post. Here you will exit Zambia into Kasane in Botswana where you will be met and assisted with your luggage.

You will then be transferred by motorized boat to the Namibian Immigration Office, where you’ll get your passport stamped. Please wear comfortable shoes, a hat and sunscreen as there is a short walk to the immigration office.
When arriving at the Kasane and Namibian Immigration Offices guests needs to fill in the required immigration forms to gain access and departure permission from the relevant authorities. This process can take between 45 to 60 minutes to complete and needs to be considered in terms of timing and pre-planning when coming to stay on one of the houseboats or at the lodge.
