Victoria Falls Bridge Toll fee

Toll fee for Victoria Falls Bridge


The Owners of the Victoria Falls Bridge, which is jointly managed by both Zambia and Zimbabwe have introduced a Toll fee for all vehicles crossing the bridge from either side. The charges are per crossing each way, with immediate effect.

Please note that operators will have to, with immediate effect, have to pass this extra cost onto all travelers who are crossing over from Victoria falls to Livingstone or from Livingstone to Victoria Falls. This extra cost will be automatically added onto the invoice only for those crossing the Bridge.

Victoria Falls Bridge Fees Introduced

“Bridge maintenance fees” have been implemented and will be charged per vehicle crossing the historic bridge between Victoria Falls and Livingstone. The fees were brought into effect on the 12th of February 2018.  

Unfortunately we are unable to continue to absorb these fees and regrettably will have to pass this on to the guests. The levy of US$ 2.50 per person will be shown as a separate charge “Victoria Falls Bridge fee” .

The Univisa stickers are now Available

[22 October 2017]

UniVisa available from early October?

KAZA univisa stickers will be available next week at all ports of entry in Zambia and Zimbabwe.
KAZA Country Liaison Officer Zimbabwe, Godfrey Mtare, told Tourism Update that the stickers had already been printed and were now with immigration departments.
“They are to be dispatched urgently to all ports of entry within the next few days,” said Mtare.
Previously, the stickers were printed outside the countries but would now be done locally (for both Zambia and Zimbabwe), making it easier and quicker to respond to supply shortages, he said.
Mtare also confirmed that Zambia and Zimbabwe were working on integrating the KAZA univisa into their local systems. “We are expecting the process to be completed soon, since much of the work has already commenced. I would put it by year-end, or early 2018 if behind schedule.”
