KAZA UniVisa: No More Visa Hassles at Victoria Falls

KAZA UniVisa: No More Visa Hassles at Victoria Falls

The Kavango Zambezi (KAZA) is the world's largest transfrontier conservation area. Spanning the borders of no less than five countries - Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Angola and Namibia – KAZA incorporates 36 protected areas including, at its heart, thundering Victoria Falls.

And it was here on the on 28th November 2014, on the Victoria Falls Bridge linking Zambia and Zimbabwe, that the KAZA UniVisa was launched.

What Is The KAZA UniVisa:

The KAZA UniVisa is a joint tourist visa between Zambia and Zimbabwe, and aims to allow for hassle-free border crossings between these neighbouring countries. This is great news for travellers to Victoria Falls, as they no longer need to purchase expensive double-entry visas to experience both sides of the falls.

What’s more, the KAZA UniVisa also covers daytrips to Botswana. So you can enjoy game drives and river cruises in Chobe National Park without purchasing a separate Botswana visa.

How This Will Improve Your Travels:

  • Faster border crossings
  • Save up to US$130 per person in visa costs
  • Cross between Zimbabwe and Zambia as frequently as you like
  • Easily tour both sides of Victoria Falls
  • Enjoy activities on both sides on the falls
  • Go on daytrips to Chobe (in Botswana) at no extra cost

Future of the KAZA UniVisa:
